Deadlocked Chapter 2 in Full

April 11, 2012 in Uncategorized

Gollancz continues to have new Deadlocked nuggets leading up to the May 1st release date, and this time we are graced with the full version of Chapter 2, which you can read here.

(In case you missed Chapter 1, Gollancz has it here).

Now here for your enjoyment here is a snippet probably most pertinent to our Eric-loving interests, and also Sookie is back with some signature snark:

“I hope so.” India looked depressed. ”I’m not a fan of the wedding industry, but I sure would like a steady someone. Dating makes me all confused.”

“I never was any good at dating.”

“That why you go with the vamp? To scare off everyone else?”

“I love him,” I said steadily. “That’s why I go with him.” I didn’t point out that human guys were simply impossible for me. You can imagine reading your date’s mind every minute. No, it really wouldn’t be any fun, would it?

“No need to get all defensive;’ India said.

I thought I’d been matter-of-fact. “He’s fun,” I said mildly, “and he treats me nice.”

“They’re … I don’t know how to ask this, but they’re cold, right?” India wasn’t the first person who’d tried to find a delicate way to ask me that. There wasn’t any delicate way.

“Not room temperature,” I said. I left it at that, because any more was none of anyone else’s business.

“Damn,” she said, after a moment. After a longer moment, she said, “Ew.”

I shrugged. She opened her mouth, looked as though she wanted to ask me something else, and then she closed it.

Well? Thoughts, reactions, excited rambles as we are only about 3 weeks away from the 12th installment’s release?
