Welcome to Science Fiction Fantasy Saturday. Snippets of ten sentences or less are yours for the reading!
Today’s snippet comes from Book Two of The Black Wing Chronicles ~ HERO’S END.
This week, we’re hitting the first page! In SOVRAN’S PAWN, Bo’s brother Edge commented that she needed to find some female friends. In book two, she’s found it useful to travel with her Kiara cousins, Tese (from SP) and Gena. Not only do they help her with the tricky primping that Bo hates so much, but having a pair of vivacious party girls with supermodel looks around, no one looks too closely at Bo.
As the book opens, they are getting ready to meet up with Blade and Chase at the Catarrh Endurance Rally. While Tese was working on Bo’s hair, a shipwide alarm interrupted the primping and Bo’s making a mad dash from the cargo hold to the flight deck at the opposite end of the ship. Oh, and she’s wisely carrying her shoes in her hand.
Grinning, Bo mounted the steps to the flight deck and slid sideways into the pilot’s seat. She dropped her shoes underneath the nav console where they would be out of the way. “Okay, Sundance, I’m here. What do you have for me?”
Bo buckled herself into the g-locks and switched over to manual control as she scanned the readouts, orienting herself quickly to the situation.
“Commander, we are entering Catarrh airspace at an illegal rate of speed,” her shipboard computer said. “Planetary authorities have ordered us to reduce speed and enter the approach corridor.”
Bo nodded. She was already on it. She keyed the braking thrusters and adjusted the ship’s course.
That’s the snippet for the week. Thank you for stopping by. Please take the time to visit the other wonderful authors taking part in Science Fiction/Fantasy Saturday!
