Excerpt from Nazarea Andrews’ The Future Without Hope


The Future Without Hope by Nazarea AndrewsLast week VBC’s Amy dove into the first book in Nazarea Andrews’ The World Without End series. She enjoyed The World Without a Future and connected with the pacing of the story. She’s catching up on the series, but we aren’t about to make you wait. We have an excerpt from the latest book in the series The Future Without Hope, which released on Nov. 20.

“What the hell are you doing, O’Malley?”

“Where is she?” I ask, my voice a soft noise. He goes still, and that fear flashes again. I saw this little jackass grow up—I can read fear in him and right now he’s scared shitless.

His voice is sharp and biting, though. “No fucking clue. Maybe she finally got smart and cut her losses.”

A fist of doubt squeezes tight but I shake it. “Nurrin doesn’t give a fuck what it takes to find her brother—and she knows I’m the best chance she has of doing that. She wouldn’t disappear. Where the fuck is she?”

Rage twists Kenny’s face, “Maybe she’s dead. Maybe you kill all the women you make promises to.”

I move fast, faster than he can react. Because when shit get real, this is the truth: Kenny is a soft politician. He isn’t a solider, has never Walked, and others kill for him. When it comes down to it, I have blood on my hands and no problems shedding it. Especially his.

“What the fuck did you do to her?” I snarl, pressing a knee into his chest and my knife to his throat.

He glares up at me, his eyes furious and mutinous. “Fuck you, O’Malley.”

I lean down, and whisper, “If she’s hurt, if anyone has so much as looked at her wrong, I’ll fucking flay you. I’ll skin you slow and feed you to the goddamn horde. Do you get me, Buchman? I don’t give a fuck who the hell you are.”

Fear is stark in his eyes, and I push down harder on the blade, until blood wells under it and his eyes bulge and he squeaks in alarm. A pitiful noise from a shitty excuse of a man. Then I jerk back, and he takes a deep breath.

“Find me the information I need. Stay the fuck out of my way—I swear if I come back, only one of us will walk out alive.”

“You could go to prison for threatening me,” he says.

I laugh, and turn, a deliberate insult. Kenny doesn’t have the balls to attack me, even with my back turned. “You fucking arrest me. I’ll still kill you.”

Without waiting for him to respond to that, I slip out of the bedroom, down the hall. At the end, I turn back and shoot his door. The noise echoes, and I hear him cursing as the guards outside shout at each other. I duck into the hall closet Kelsey used to hide me in when Buchman surprised us by coming home early, and wait for them to pound into Kenny’s room.

Then I slip out and into the night, letting the darkness take me as 1 comes awake to the sound of gunfire and the screams of the dead.
