Here’s another exceptional excerpt from Tamar Sloan’s Child of Crossroads featured exclusively in Souls & Shadows.
𝗠𝗼𝘀𝘁 𝗱𝗲𝗺𝗶𝗴𝗼𝗱𝘀 𝗹𝗶𝘃𝗲 𝗶𝗻 𝘀𝗲𝗰𝗿𝗲𝘁…𝘂𝗻𝘁𝗶𝗹 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝘆’𝗿𝗲 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗼𝗻𝗹𝘆 𝗼𝗻𝗲𝘀 𝘄𝗵𝗼 𝗰𝗮𝗻 𝘀𝗮𝘃𝗲 𝘂𝘀.
I watch as Caleb disembarks after the souls. He pauses to wave, something in his smile seeming to be just for me. I wriggle my fingers back, wondering what the hell is happening to me.
As the train starts up again and heads back to Central Station, I flop back in my chair like he just took all my bones with him. I’m nothing but a puddle of smiles.
It quickly wears off, like my happiness needs Caleb to sustain it.
Or maybe… it’s what I saw in Melvin.
I shudder, wrapping my arms around myself.
Melvin’s chest was no longer empty after his soul was taken from him. Deep within the space that houses our light and spirit, a wraith had made itself comfortable. It turned his torso into a silently screaming black hole.
I have no doubt that Hades is controlling Melvin.
