Sentence Sneak Peek - Dead Reckoning

Dead Reckoning by Mercedes Lackey and Rosemary Edghill

The first sentence from each chapter of Dead Reckoning, it's a min summary of what you can expect to read.

* Spoilers are highlighted like so :)

"West Texas, April 1867

Jett Gallatin expected trouble in Alsop, Texas—but not zombies." "In defiance of common sense, the further she got from immediate danger, the more frightened Jett became." "The trail the marauders had left was easy for White Fox to follow." "The "prayer meeting" finally drew to a close, though Jett didn't think it fairly deserved the name." "By unspoken agreement all three of them stayed awake the rest of the night, even though Maxwell was safely imprisoned and Brother Shepherd and his zombie army were gone." "According to the records kept by the Yell and Cry, the two closest ranches to Alsop were Flatfield and the Lazy J (now Jerusalem's Wall)." "Jett slid down Nightingale's back and sat down on a rock to remove her boots and the trousers she was wearing under her petticoats." "The draperies had been closed before Jett was brought to Brother Shepherd's study (again)." "That morning, while the predawn shadows were still cold and blue, Gibbons and White Fox had watched as Jett rode out of sight, then they returned to the make-shift laboratory she'd created in the Alsop saloon." "Considering that they still had Shepherd's acolytes to deal with, Gibbons was just as glad to discover Shep-herd had apparently confiscated all firearms brought to Jerusalem's Wall as a matter of course."
