BLOG TOUR. Excerpt & Giveaway : Decimation by Tich Brewster
Armageddon has arrived and the kings of hell are out for Hannah’s blood.
Hannah is the only one that can destroy hell and save the world from destruction. She diligently trains with her father in preparation of her final battle with evil. The task of slaying demons in the few short months that she’s been a Devada has changed her — she’s no longer the scared, innocent girl she once was.
When she rescues a frightened little boy, she gets more than she bargained for. He is the host body for Liehijon and Liehijon is the key to finding Satan.
I want my momma, the child’s quivering voice came through crystal clear in her mind.
Where are you?
I’m in my bedroom, hiding from the monsters.
Her heart broke for this little boy. Where is your house?
He sniffled. On Fifth Street. A cry tore from his throat. Please don’t let them hurt me.
I will not let them hurt you. Can you tell me where your house is at on Fifth Street?
Assuming she was not losing her mind, she needed to find his house before the demons decided to go back and finish what they had started.
The playground is across the street.
Good. She knew exactly where he was. There was only one playground in the entire town—the elementary school. Is your house in front of the school or is it in front of the playground?
You’re doing great. Now she just needed to know which house, it could be one of three.
Can you tell me what your house looks like? Do you have any toys in the front yard?
For a long moment silence filled the space between them, and she feared she’d lost the connection. Then after what seemed like an eternity he spoke. My house is grey. Sammy’s doghouse is by the porch.
Good. Can you think of anything else that might help me find you? She needed as much detail as she could get from him.
Um, he thought for a bit. I live on the corner.
Bingo, that was all the information she needed in order to find him. Great job…what was his name? Had she even asked? No, she had been so focused on locating the poor boy, she completely forgot to ask him his name. What’s your name?
Austen, I will be there as soon as I can. You stay hidden in your room and don’t come out until I get there. Do you understand?
I can hear them.
Crap. I’m on my way. She hoped she snapped back to reality ASAP. If what she just experienced was some sort of telepathic communication, like what she experienced with her father when he was in Hell, then she needed to hurry and get to Austen before the demons found him.
Tich is an Oklahoma resident and the mother of five. Her passion for reading started at an early age when her Aunt Vicky gave her the novel Heidi for Christmas. She didn’t start writing until middle school, after being inspired by her best friend’s short stories. “Genny’s stories weren’t just great but they inspired me to put my pen and paper to good use.” Tich never thought of publishing her works until working with Teresa on the Royal Blood series.
