Watch the crazy authors as they explain.
The following is an excerpt from Eleventh Elementum where Skylee shares the secret of her Humusara with Will.
Skylee took the book from her backpack, placed it on the foot of the bed and they both knelt in front of it. She quickly removed her necklace and placed it in the book’s cover. Will’s mouth dropped open as it began to transform.
“What’s bloody happening?”
“It’s aging¸ see, here’s the strange lettering,” she said touching the page. “But watch—wait—there—do you see it?
“No…eh…I don’t see anything, just unreadable script.”
“But you have to see it, look, don’t you see it?” Skylee took Will’s hand and placed it on the page.
They both gasped as a brilliant light appeared. It looked exactly like the light she’d seen the first time she placed the Elementum inside the cover. There was no time for Skylee to explain. Will’s body jerked, and his hand appeared to be stuck to the book. Just as before, a blaze of silvery white light erupted and formed a dazzling column of brightness that illuminated the room.
“Don’t be afraid,” whispered Skylee, seeing his eyes widen with astonishment.
Skylee shivered as the room grew colder and colder. She watched with tears in her eyes as Will gasped for air while the light moved up his arm to his chest. The same orb of twinkling light she’d seen days ago on her chest was now on his heart shining through the fabric of his shirt. Within seconds, the third column of light formed and returned to the book.
As the room warmed, Will stared down at the book. His hand softly rested on the page as he watched the flickering light fade. He didn’t speak, didn’t move. Words were appearing, shimmering across the page in front of him.
