Because it takes a lot of work to make Mondays fun, we at Inkspell decided to start a blog feature we like to call Eyecandy Monday. Each Monday we will feature the characters from one Inkspell novel and share with you all the fine details and tasty tidbits we can dig up about these interesting and well written main characters. We want to revisit some of our favorite hotties from our favorite stories! As we revisit our eyecandy, we are sharing with you an excerpt to wet your appetite about the character and the story. After all, you can't get enough of book eyecandy!
“I enjoyed spending time with you.”
I shot a sideways glance at him. His cheeks reddened and he looked away at the sea, running his hand along the railing. I wondered if he had to try hard to like me or if it came naturally. Before we’d been assigned to one another, I’d hardly spoken a word to him. There was so much I didn’t know about him: what he liked and disliked, his goals, and, more important, the shape of his heart.
The question just popped out of my mouth. “Do you think what we’re doing here is right?”
He squinted his eyes. “What do you mean?”
“Being here right now, building our lives on Paradise 21?” I kicked a chunk of crystal and it skimmed over the waves before plopping in the water. “It seems unnatural, as if we’re taking something that isn’t ours to take.”
“We have to keep going, Annie.” He paused and turned toward me. “If not for the Guide, then for each other.”
I wondered if he meant me and him, or our entire ship. Either way, he was right. We owed it to one another to keep life going and build a safe refuge. I thought of Mom and Dad, Grandpapa, Great-grandma Tiff, and all the other Lifers that spent their lives on the ship to get us here. I couldn’t let them down.
Corvus had so much strength it radiated out and enveloped me. He’d seemed so simple and dull before, but as I spent more time with him I caught glimpses of an inner resilience and a personality much more profound. If Sirius was mercury, then Corvus was granite, solid and dependable, a person I could latch onto in a time of so much flux. Could I love him?
