Today I am happy to be hosting a stop on the Darkness Falls by Cate Tiernan blog tour. For my stop I am posting an extract from the first chapter of that book, to avoid spoilers. I'm also cutting out my favorite part of this extract so I don't spoil book one, but here you go: some Reyn/Nasty tension!

knew was there. The burn that matched the one I had on
the back of my neck. The one I’d kept hidden for more
than four centuries.
