A low growl broke free as I surveyed the prisoner, scenting his fear…and his madness. Bitter, astringent, and tinged with that undefinable scent of wrongness. I bared my teeth and snarled as I grabbed the prisoner’s shirt. Yanking him upright, I slammed him against the metal wall of the containment room. “Why, traitor?”
Burning gold eyes stared back at me, too insane to back down as was proper among Therians. I slammed him against the wall again then tossed him into the chair. My two lieutenants held him in place.
The above is an excerpt from my WIP novella, Tiger’s Paw, the prequel to The Therian Way, my urban fantasy series. I’m always curious to hear what people think of the first impression of my protagonist. Intense? Intrigued?
