Teaser Tuesday ~ Ring & Dagger's Magic

I realized I have not had a Teaser Tuesday in a few weeks. A pox upon me! So, without further ado, I give you a little teaser from Vampire Nocturne

The Mystic Ring carries great magic, and is partially how you are able to move through ley lines,” Vasyl added.

I'm not that good at it,” I admitted.

You will get better,” he assured. “If I can not persuade you to not return, remember what you did to me.”

I frowned, puzzled.

At the end of the ceremony. You threw me?”

Ohhh!” I let my head slink down some. “I didn't mean to. I'm really sorry.”

I know. But that is not what I meant. You stopped me with the ring. Do not forget what you can do with it. Plus, the Dagger of Delphi; its blade is made of pure silver. You saw its power. Plunged into the heart of a vampire, it will make him immobile while you decapitate him.”

Right,” I said, inwardly cringing. “It stabbed the vampire without my even touching it.” A chill crept up my arms with the memory.


It then returned to me.”

It is imbued with the soul of the sibyl of Delphi, so it will always go after vampires, demons, and Fallen Angels, and all their descendants. It knows to return to its mistress. Always.”

  1. I'm with your character, cringing. You have to DECAPITATE a vampire? Yikes!!! Strong imagery.

  2. Yes, a dirty job, but someone has to do it. Sabrina doesn't like the idea of doing this at all.

    Thanks for stopping by, Linda!

  3. It's a good thing that the sword has abilities of its own. Sabrina would be a bit hesitant.

  4. She has a long way to go from here, but yes, it is a good thing the dagger knows what to do.

  5. Well done; I like the attention to detail.

  6. I'm reading this in a fog of fatigue. But its good.

  7. Yikes, decapitation?! I love that the dagger always returns to its mistress though. Great excerpt!

  8. ~Thanks, William
    ~I hope you get some rest, Shelly, but thank you.
    ~Yeah, Heather, we have to decapitate those nasty vampires if we don't want them returning on us. Thanks for stopping in!
