Six Sentence Sunday

It's time for another round of Six Sentence Sunday! Since the Team Losh Charity Compilation drive just ended, I decided to pick my six for the week from my submission, Ravenous. Ravenous is set in Iceland during the Mist Hardships of 1783-1784. I talked about it on the blog briefly once before, but here's the story for those who don't know.

In 1783, the Laki volcanic fissure in Iceland experienced a series of eruptions that lasted for nearly a year. Iceland and Europe were both devastated. A visible mist hung over much of Iceland and Europe, and carried with it gasses from the eruption that killed thousands, devastated farmland, and decimated the livestock population. It was pretty brutal, and was the perfect backdrop for Ravenous.

Those of you who know your mythology will probably find some of this familiar. ;) 

Enjoy!

There was a lot Jon did not understand about the myths surrounding his life and Katrín’s, but he’d learned enough in these last months to understand one thing clearly: the end would come for them eventually.
Already, death lay like a shroud on the edge of vision. Freki was weak, failing, leaving Katrín barely able to shift into wolf form. And the mind that he and Geri had once shared was fracturing. Soon, in this life, in the next, it would splinter apart as Freki and Katrín’s had done lifetimes ago and the connection that had always bound them together would be gone for good.  
Death would come for them then, and for the world.

And that's it for this week. We'll pick up with this one next week. :) In the meantime, check out some of the other SSS submissions (not all are suitable for young readers!) here.

Happy Sunday! 
A.K.M.
