Continuing with science fiction romance today. Here’s an excerpt from Lady of the Star Wind, an epic portal fantasy, which is undergoing a final edit and will be released after Star Cruise: Outbreak in the April/May 2016 time frame.

Sandy and Mark have been transported to an unknown world. This snippet is from  quite a bit further in the novel, after tey’ve left the mysterious mountain oasis, in the company of some new friends… Sandy was bitten by a snake, went into the green light with a woman unknown to her and now is sitting in a room she’s never seen before, with four women who seem to think Sandy is someone else…the Lady of the Star Wind…A new player, Haatrin, has entered the chamber and scolded the Moon Sisters.

“We meant no harm, Exalted One Haatrin,” Tresa said, getting boldly to her feet, “We merely wanted to renew our acquaintance with our old friend.” She cast an angry glance at Sandy. “But this woman is an impostor. We should let her continue into death’s embrace, since loss of life is how her body is reacting to Sherabti’s kiss in the mortal world.”

“Now you want to kill me?” Fight-or-flight response fully engaged, Sandy chose to go on the offensive, leaping to her feet. “I didn’t ask to be bitten by a snake, and I certainly didn’t ask you to bring me wherever this is. Send me back, make me whole, and we’ll call it even.”

Haatrin raised her hands, and the sisters subsided. “You were foolish and hasty,” she said to them, her tone chiding, “Now you must bear the consequences.”

Continuing on with this scene next week…

  1. Really appreciating the comments! I’m going to publish this one probably in the April time frame so….eventually you’ll be able to read all of it 🙂 I’ll keep everyone posted, I promise. Off to read more snippets myself now…..

  2. Uh-oh! What will the consequences be? And will Sandy get caught up in them? I hope not. Great snippet! 🙂

  3. Haatrin may threaten consequences with the mysterious women, but she doesn’t seem concerned about Sandy. I think Sandy will have to appeal to her A LOT if she hopes for any rescue.

  4. Poor Sandy! I agree with her! It’s not like she wanted to get bitten by a snake! I get a feeling things will get worse for her before they get better. And all the while I feel so bad for Mark! He has no idea what’s going on! … Right?

  5. The snippet is great! What disturbs me is that THERE ARE SNAKES IN SPACE? Say it isn’t so! Can’t we have ONE snakeless haven in the universe, hahahaha. Seriously, fun snippet 😀

  6. Ooooh, somebody is really going to be in trouble. Make that three somebodys. I wanna know consequences, consequences are always interesting to see. I hope Haatrin decides to send her back, but I get the feeling things are not going to be that simple if her body is dying.
