On A Dark Wing Blog Tour


Hey everyone today we have Jordan Dane stopping by with an excerpt from Abbey Chandler from her novel On A Dark Wing. Don’t know what On a Dark Wing is about? Here’s the synopsis.


The choices I had made led to the moment when fate took over. I would learn a lesson I wasn't prepared for. And Death would be my willing teacher.
Five years ago, Abbey Chandler cheated Death. She survived a horrific car accident, but her "lucky" break came at the expense of her mother's life and changed everything. After she crossed paths with Death—by taking the hand of an ethereal boy made of clouds and sky—she would never be normal again.
Now she's the target of Death's ravens and an innocent boy's life is on the line. When Nate Holden—Abbey's secret crush—starts to climb Alaska's Denali, the Angel of Death stalks him because of her.
And Abbey finds out the hard way that Death never forgets.

Sounds awesome right? Here’s the excerpt and stay tuned there's info on how to win a Kindle Fire after!!!!

Excerpt from ON A DARK WING by Jordan Dane (Harlequin Teen, Jan 2012)
Abbey Chandler
I don’t know when I actually fell asleep, but I must have. I remembered tossing and turning and looking at the clock on my nightstand every hour. Only this time, when I opened my eyes, the clock read 2:35 in the morning. I’d slept for three hours straight, but that wasn’t good enough. I didn’t want to be awake. Waking up meant I had to remember what happened and relive it. Being awake meant I still had to deal with what I’d do next, but a steady scratching at my window made me pull back the covers.
            The full moon shined through the glass, nearly filling my entire window. With a tree limb eclipsing it, the moonlight cast an eerie shadow across my wall. The dark shape looked like a finger stretching into my bedroom.
            “Damn it,” I whispered.
            I forgot to close my drapes. When I got out of bed, I saw I still had my clothes on, another bad reminder of what had happened. I stripped out of my jeans and peeled off my shirt, getting down to my undies and T-shirt before I headed for the window.
            But a loud crash made me scream.
            “Oh, shit!”
            Something black hit my window and almost cracked the glass. I jumped back and hid in the dark. From the corner of my eye, I peeked over. When I saw movement, I pressed against the wall, too scared to move. An inky black shadow magnified across the wall of my room—the flapping wings of a bird.
            I gasped and slid down, hiding in the corner. I don’t know how long I stayed there. I lost track of time, but when it looked like the bird had flown away, I stood on shaky legs and crept toward the window. I shut the drapes real fast, but not before I took another peek. With trembling fingers, I reached for the curtains with the thud of my heart pulsing in my ears. Dead bodies were in my basement, not exactly a comfort. Even though my dad slept in his bedroom down the hall, I had never felt so alone. I pulled back the curtain—barely enough to look out—and I nearly lost it.
            “Oh, my God.”
            Below my bedroom window, a tree moved in the night breeze. At least, that’s what I thought. It wasn’t until I looked closer that I saw them. The tree was filled with ravens and crows. From here, it looked like hundreds of them. When their iridescent black wings flapped, they caught the moonlight in their feathers and it made the whole tree look as if it would lift from the ground and drift into the night sky. The birds had gathered for a purpose that I didn’t understand, but for some strange reason, I knew one thing.
            They had come because of me.
