Exclusive Excerpt

I don’t know how long I’ve been lying there when I become aware of a sound. “Levi?” I poke my head out of my nest, the cold air chilling my hot skin. 

Nothing. The room has grown dark in the rainy afternoon, and the house is completely quiet. 

My head is still pounding, and I hope Levi hurries up at the chemist. I’m just about to roll over and try to sleep when I hear the sound again. I sit bolt upright, spangles of light prickling my eyes. 

The sound is sharp and scratchy, and it makes me shudder. It’s coming from the spare bedroom.

I climb unsteadily out of bed and pause, waiting for the dizziness to ebb. The noise comes again, and I stagger towards it.

I’ve heard it before, but I can’t place it. There’s a deliberate quality to it, a sense that someone wants me to hear this. 

It stops as suddenly as it started, and I pause by the room’s open door, waiting in the sudden quiet. It comes again, and I lurch into the room. 

There’s no one here. The bed is immaculately made up, the room tidy and dim in the stormy light. It’s also completely silent. I scan every corner, scrutinize every shadow.

“Who is it?” I call. “What do you want?”

Nothing. Just the wind and rain outside. 

The scraping begins again.

This time it’s coming from my and Levi’s bedroom. I spin and leg it back into the room, banging into the doorframe painfully before stopping in the room’s centre.

My heart pounds as I try to breathe. There’s nothing here, of course.

What the fuck is happening?

The noise comes again, taunting me. Now it’s outside the house, just beyond the window. Oh hell—I know what the sound is now. Fingernails scraping and tapping on the glass. From the outside. Two storeys up. 


Something wicked audio coverBlack and Blue Series Book 3

After powerful psychic Blue Billings fell in love with Levi Black, he believed their biggest challenges would arise from Blue’s ability to see and speak to the dead. So it’s rather alarming when he and Levi are confronted with a spate of new—and frightening—problems that have to do with the realm of the living.

A sadistic serial killer is stalking their beloved York, and Blue himself is in the killer’s crosshairs. Blue and Levi must race against time to catch the murderer as the deaths increase in ferocity. But when they’re forced from their home, and close acquaintances seemingly disappear like mist over the Minster’s spires, Blue finds that he is completely and terrifyingly on his own, and for the first time in his life, he’s without his powers.

This is the third book in the bestselling Black and Blue series. The books are meant to be read in order.
