In conjunction with the blog tour for The Experiment, I'll be posting an excerpt daily from the book. You can see the schedule for the tour here. Here's today's excerpt:
Cil’s head whipped to the left. “I hear someone coming,” she whispered. Another gunshot, closer, louder.
“Run,” Brax said and took off through the jungle. The rest of us followed.
Shouts came from behind us. The other three pulled ahead of me, but I kept them in sight. Jules constantly looked over her shoulder to make sure I kept up. The leaves and branches smacked across my face. People pursued, gaining on us. I looked behind me just for a second and when I looked back, I didn’t see Jules. I ran faster to catch up, but still couldn’t find them. I didn’t shout for fear of giving away our position. Winded, I slowed my pace. The blood pounding in my ears drowned out all other sound.
I stumbled into a small clearing where a giant brazzle stood, staring at me. I froze. The brazzle’s mouth was frothy and its breathing labored, snorting out each breath. Like the other brazzle, its green-brown coat looked as if crafted from wire. Blood oozed from a hole in its chest. Its big, dark eyes fixed on me and the beast leapt.
here. Come back tomorrow for another excerpt.
