Black Pantheons by Curtis M. Lawson
“Loni watched the horse through her binoculars. Shifting auroras reflected off its pearlescent mane, sending a cascade of prismatic brilliance across its ivory coat. Hands, smaller than Loni's own, held on to its silver reins.”

“A species of pride, the kind of codependent pride that parents and children mutually share for the other's accomplishments, burned in Emmett's heart.”
Curtis M. Lawson, The Devoured

“Noontime illumination forced itself in from the space between the shade and the window frame.”
Curtis M. Lawson, Black Pantheons: Collected Tales of Gnostic Dread

“Against the backdrop of darkness, it seemed as though she was the only being in the entire world - a lone star in the void.”
