Continuing from the past weeks, this snippet is from Tower in the Woods, a post-apocalyptic zombie romance now available on Amazon, ARe and LSBooks. It is based on the Grimm's fairy tale Rapunzel. For past snippets, click on the SFFSat tag at the bottom of this post. (Note: For those I have somehow lured into buying this book, don't worry. I'm going to start switching it up after a couple more snippets.)

Firmly, Nel shook her head, more at ease with nonverbal communication. Then she realized the man couldn’t possibly see that motion in the dark.
