Happy Sunday! Here is an excerpt from Dark Scorpio~ out now 🙂

As the autopsy began, she opened her gift so she could see the Pisces and Scorpio signs on the victim. Nothing was out of the ordinary until the heart was removed. “Stop.”
Her breath caught as the image of a scorpion wrapped around the heart and then sank inside.
“What is it?” Sora asked.
“Pick up the heart, Asher, so that I can see it more clearly.”
He picked the heart up carefully and held it over the body.
The shape of a scorpion began to form again on the heart, almost as if someone was burning it on.
Sora cursed in Japanese, and though she didn’t understand a word of it, she caught the meaning well enough: ‘fucking hell and damnation’.
“The first heart did not do that,” Asher said.
As the Scorpio constellation began to sparkle like a ruby in sunlight, Autumn’s eyes narrowed. “That’s because the first victim wasn’t Zodiac gifted—this one is. She marked his soul. That’s why her trail disappeared so fast.” She met Sora’s dark gaze. “She’s using the Piscean energy to hide herself, using his soul to wipe the trail clean.”
