The Lady of the Star Wind is an epic portal fantasy, which will be released after Star Cruise: Outbreak, in the early 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 they’ve left the mysterious mountain oasis, in the company of some new friends… Sandy, who picked up an odd stone key in the Oasis, was bitten by a snake named Sherabti, 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, entered the chamber and scolded the Moon Sisters, after which an even more senior goddess, Nuet, arrived to scold them ALL and sent the Moon Sisters fleeing. Nuet is speaking:

“This is not my concern, not my battle. Don’t entreat me to be involved.” The vehemence in her voice was powerful. “I’ve fought the chaos and the darkness here in my time, vanquished the evil I faced, and moved beyond to greater purpose.”

Haatrin inclined her head. “Understood. I’d no intention of reaching out to you. The Moon Sisters are young and heedless, as everyone knows. My comrades among the Elder Gods and I are well seasoned, ready to carry the battle to the enemy ourselves.”

“None may summon me from my refuge again,” Nuet said, “especially not those ridiculous children – I won’t be merciful if there’s a re-occurrence of this unwarranted situation. “

USA Today Happily Ever After hosted the cover reveal for Star Cruise: Outbreak this past week. The book went live on Amazon today – a week early!  Buy link: http://www.amazon.com/Star-Cruise-Outbreak-Sectors-Romance-ebook/dp/B01E1VPVXO/?tag=verscoblo-20

  1. There is certainly discord between Haatrin and Nuet, and poor Sandy, as Ed pointed out, has no idea what she’s gotten involved with.

  2. Yes, Nuet can be a bit grumpy! I really enjoyed writing this book and thank you, everyone, for all the feedback and comments. One more excerpt to go from this scene, until I release the book in May. Then we’ll come back to LADY for a few more words…have to start sharing from STAR CRUISE: OUTBREAK since it’s now available (surprise surprise). The first excerpt from it will be April 24th.

  3. I love your cover for Outbreak! Wonderful! And a great snippet! Glad Nuet is merciful, but where does that leave Sandy? Anxious for more. 🙂

  4. I love Nuet more and more each week. She’s like a grumpy grandma who’s still physically young, only one you REALLY don’t want to piss off. Someone better tell the Moon Sisters what she said, or I’d rather Nuet do it herself. I’m quite sure that would be a comical scene for us readers! The Sisters could be running for the hills, but that’s even better then!

    Congrats on the release!
