For those that missed the announcement on Elizabeth's Facebook page -

Okay, Scribe fans, in case you missed it in the wee hours of this morning, the first draft of The Singer is finished. (Yay!) Noooo, that doesn't mean it will be out next week, but the revisions and editing and all that jazz are on schedule for an early May release. Thanks for all the encouragement and good wishes everyone.



Sooooo... Does that mean we might get a spoiler here on the forum? Hummmmmm.

It never hurts to ask does it?

Ask, and you shall receive...

(Sometimes.)

This is an EXCLUSIVE teaser for my forum members. Are there spoilers? Well... it's a bit vague, so you'll just have to discuss amongst yourself. I will tell you that this scene happens early on in the book. Chapter Three, to be precise. Keep in mind, this is unedited, so ignore any typos.

~~~
The forest was midnight black, shrouded in a thick fog that curled and twisted around his ankles. The path he followed was not clear; wet branches slapped his face as he stumbled in the dark.

Where was she?

He could hear her in the distance. Her cries ripped through his chest. Every time she grew louder, he was forced to turn again, as the path diverted him. The dark maze wove through the forest, teasing him. Frustrating him.

He would not be defeated.

The dark mass rose before him, looming over his head as if trying to block out the stars. Damp branches laced with thorns twisted in on themselves, blocking him from going further. The maze urged him to turn again, but he stopped. Held his hand up.

Her voice was audible now.

“Please. Please come back.”

With a frustrated roar, he pounded on the twisted branches. Then he spun around, looking for a way out or around or through. It was a dead end. There was nowhere to turn but away from her again.

But his mate needed him. She called for him, and he’d left her alone too long.

He plunged his hands into the thick brush that separated him from her voice. He ignored the pain as he forced his way forward.

“Please,” she whispered, her voice thick with tears. “I need you.”

He tore at the hedge, ripping away the thorns and branches that tore his skin, ignoring the pain in his chest, ignoring everything except her voice. Finally, his bloody hand reached through and felt the cool air on the other side.

Pale moonlight streamed through the fog, as he forced his bleeding body the rest of the way through the brush. There, on the far side of the clearing, he saw her.
Broken and bent with grief, she curled into herself, her arms wrapped around her legs. She wore a pale robe, streaked with mud, that pooled around her feet. She rocked back and forth as he approached. He approached cautiously, kneeling in front of her where she sat. Then he reached out a tentative hand and pushed a damp curl from her face.

She looked up.

“You left me.”

“I found you.”

“Why did it take so long?”

“I was lost.”

Her gold eyes didn’t glow as they should have. They were dull with sorrow. Exhausted with weeping. He could see the tear tracks glittering on her cheeks.

“I found you, reshon.”

She held out her arms like a child asking for comfort. He reached out and picked her up, lifting her from the cold ground and cradling her against his chest. He felt her fingers tracing over his scratched skin.

“What happened to you?”

“I told you. I was lost, but I came back.”

“You found me.”

“Yes.”

“And you’re not leaving again?”

“No. I promise.”

“I’m so tired.” She lay her head on his shoulder, and he felt his heart swell with
purpose.

“Then rest while I hold you. I promise, I won’t let go.”

To forum members, point of discussion -

I'm not done reading The Scribe yet and it may be revealed later in the book, but did the reference to "gold eyes" mean something?

Engineer, never thought about that until you mentioned it, the color of her eyes, gold, the color of his- grey. I'm glad they get to at least dreamwalk together (if not actually reunite) early in the book!!!!

Ok, so, we all know E doesn't do random things, what do you think is the significance to the gold?

I think that Ava is more powerful and more angelic and may not be Irina like others are. Her mother is not Irina and I think her father was Grigori or one of the fallen. He insisted on her name being Ava and as explained in The Scribe, names are very important. I think that she may be the gift of the merciful God to the fallen. Just something that crossed my mind while reading the prologue to The Singer. She is very important to Jaron. He was waiting for her.

help me out

Post by calli on Tue Jun 17, 2014 6:17 am

SPOILER ALERT
ok...help me out. LOVE LOVE LOVE ALL E's books...I have never been so confused though...or am I? Here it is...Ava's eye color gold- more angelic like...is Ava's Mom in the cell at the end and Jaron fathered her father? Might that be why Ava is so different?? Did I miss the whole ending meaning?? Did Jaron father other woman (who he has helped with the voices?) who will help him get back to heaven?? Who really was in the cell at the end?

Spoiler Alert-It is my understanding the Ava at the end of the book is Ava's grandmother. It seems as though Jaron is her grandfather, but there will probably be a twist in there because Volund also has an interest in Ava and can see where she is like Jaron. Her golden eyes might be because of the fallen, but the book also mentioned the daughters of Leoc had golden eyes. But I am leaning more towards them having to do with Jaron. Lena is her mother and her father is the musician. There was a paternity test that Rhys talks about, so that part is pretty clear. Those are my thoughts any way Smile
