Hooked on Imprisoned, Maerva Saved #mfrhooks

A teaser of magic of a darker kind from Imprisoned in Stone. For the crime of healing without payment, the Brethren imprisoned Dylan’s soul in stone. Every full moon, they awakened him and renewed the bonds. When the blood dried on the stone, his awareness faded, but during those few brief moments, he had one thought--revenge. 

For this weeks teaser, Dylan's search for revenge continues. Last excerpt, Maerva was threatened. Now the blending of Gareth's and Dylan's powers save here. But the question remains. At what cost will it be achieved?


“Dylan, help me,” Gareth yelled. “Our link is fading.” Using the last vestige of their combined powers, he gestured. The man who threatened Maerva turned into a pillar of ash. A heartbeat later, the dagger clattered to the ground. Gareth moved toward Maerva. He only took a single stride before light blinded him.

Every nerve in his body reacted to the pain. With a groan, he dropped to his knees, then fell forward. Hard rocks ground into his face. “No!” Maerva’s voice pierced the throbbing. Her hands beat out the sparks smoldering on his clothes. She mumbled a spell and a blue mist left her fingers to flow over Gareth’s body, forming a living cocoon. 

Gareth sucked down a long breath at the brief respite from pain. Labored breathing punctuated his speech. “Nemor was right. I didn’t have enough powers.” His back arched as fire raced along already tortured nerves. The runes flickered out.
