About The Summer Marked
Series: The Winter People 2
Genre: Young Adult Fantasy
I'm joining the shout out for this read because I thought The Winter People was pretty good, and I for one want to find out what else Rebekah Purdy has up her sleeve for her Summer Fae people.
A sigh escaped my lips when I watched daylight sneak through the door at the back of the room. Somehow, I’d survived the night. My body ached as I attempted to stretch my legs out, my arms still tied to the post.
Every part of me was numb from the cold, but I was alive. As more light fractured the shadows, my gaze fell to the blood-slickened floors. It looked as if the floor tiles had bled. I buried my face against my shoulder. I wanted to cry but didn’t dare show my fear. If they realized how badly this place affected me, they’d find other ways to get inside my head or worse, maybe torture me. A shiver scraped along my spine at the thought.
I need to get out of here. I’m going to go crazy.
A lock rattled then the door flung open. Etienne sauntered inside, his white tunic opened like some seventies porn star. He gave me a sad smile.
“Good. You’re awake. The queen would like to see you.” He walked over and untied the ropes that secured me to the bed.
I cried out as my wrists were freed. The skin around them was raw and reddened from my attempts to escape.
“What are you, her bitch?”
“You should just give in now, otherwise the Winter Queen will only make things worse.”
“Trust me, I’m gonna keep fighting until I get out of this hell hole.”
