I've been through edits on the next Tournai book, so I thought I'd share another snippet from that before I move on to something else for a while (I'll come back to this book closer to its early June release date). If you missed it, I shared a snippet last week too. One of the main characters of this book is Faelen, who has a twin brother Alexander (Alexander will have his story next...). This snippet is a bit of a family dinner in which some people learn just how mischievous the twins were as children. (I went a bit over six sentences. Sorry!)
“You dressed alike?” Flavian asked.
“We were children,” Faelen said.
“And it was Mother’s idea,” Alexander continued. “She had us dressed the same from head to toe. I think she still would if she had her way.”
“Alexander!” But Faelen couldn’t fight laughter even as he admonished his twin, which probably ruined the effect.
“It was almost impossible to tell them apart,” Philip said to Amory and Flavian. “There were times you wondered which you were with.”
Faelen closed his eyes in resignation, but he was still laughing as Alexander spoke.
“That was on purpose sometimes.”
