Annabra Series Book 1
"I took a tighter grip on my bow and in a split second decided now was the time. I put one foot out to the side of the tree, shifted my core balance to that foot, and let the other one follow it, I was facing towards my prey, whatever it was and I closed my eyes as I shot the arrow straight into its' heart. My prey wasn't prey. It was Death. The arrow fell to the ground and Death laughed, he laughed at my foolish efforts to defeat him. You couldn't kill death, but Death could kill you." - Chapter 17
