Glamour Blade ~ #8sunday

Yeah . . . it’s Weekend Writing Warriors’ 8 Sentence Sunday! How about another 8 sentences from my WIP, Glamour Blade – book 3 in the House Millar series?

Entering the club was surreal in the extreme. The music thumped to the point I felt it more than heard it—which, with the hearing of a sidhe, was saying something indeed. The low lights flickered against the dark wood and too many bodies kept the place shifting and mysterious as I looked around. Lights flashed over the dance floor giving a strangeness to the dancers appearance—a sort of ethereal, shimmering draw.

Of course, that was deliberate on the part of the owners, easier to hide in plain sight. Vampires, with their slightly luminous skin, were something to behold under certain types of lighting, unless precautions were taken.

I appreciated that the smoking ban was respected here, since I hated the smell of cigarettes almost as much as the taste of it on my tongue.

I had grown tired of club hopping, especially since I never seemed to be sent to the nicer places.

  1. Fantastic hook, pulling me into a surreal bar where vampires dance and a sidhe appears to be on the hunt. Very nice!

  2. Great visual. And this: “The music thumped to the point I felt it more than heard it…” is excellent. It made me hear a techno beat in my mind. Good stuff. 🙂

  3. How cool, to think about the vampires being there dancing. I could feel the music and feel the mood. Very nicely done. 🙂

  4. Lots of interesting details here to ponder, really got me into the scene and wondering what was going on, what would happen next…excellent excerpt!

  5. This is excellent world-building in such a brief snippet. I so want to know what happens next….

  6. Those modern vampires have a lot more going for them than the old fashioned ones. All they did was suck people’s blood. I never heard of Dracula dancing.

    1. LOL, Dracula did just about anything he wanted 😉 [book version, not movie] but what a boring eternal life … to never do anything fun again 🙁

  7. The opening detail about feeling the music more than hearing it is awesome! I’ve been to concerts like that. Really I loved that whole paragraph. The very last sentence made me laugh. Poor guy.

    1. LOL, thanks!
      I still remember the first club I ever went to. I was 16 and the music was so loud and thumping I swore I vibrated most of the way home from the sound build up, 🙂

  8. You had me a Sidhe. 😉

  9. Yeah, this makes me wonder who sends a Sidhe girl to a vampire club, and why? Thanks for sharing.

    1. Now, are you sure Rory’s a girl? lol
      As for who… not tellin’ yet HEHE
      Thanks for stopping by 🙂
