Ukens smakebit: Dead Silence
Den ukentlige utfordringen hos Flukten fra virkeligheten: del ett par setninger fra en bok du leser nå på bloggen din.
Ukens smakebit kommer litt seint på kvelden, jeg får skylde på det fine været. :-) Sitatet er fra s. 88 i Dead Silence, fjerde og siste bok i den fantastiske paranormale The Body Finder-serien til Kimberly Derting.
She wanted to glance around her, to know who was still in the room with her because it felt like she was all alone now. Just her ... and the bodies. Somehow, though, she couldn't manage to turn her own head. She couldn't stop watching the child with his lifeless eyes.
The echoless corpse.
She crept nearer to him and felt her heart stutter. At any other time she'd have felt something by now. At the very least, her skin would have prickled, her nerves tight with the awareness that she was so near a body.Even if the echo was faint and hard to find.
But not now.
Now there was nothing.
