I’ve reached the end of what can be shared from DARIK without giving spoilers so until I have TIMTUR back from edits, I’m going to share a few excerpts from the first book in the series, AYDARR.

The excerpt, from the beginning of the book, follows directly after last week’s:

She remembered eating dinner in her small modular house on the edge of the colony, falling asleep watching an adventure trideo she’d seen a hundred times then…nothing.

“And now I’m here,” She took a closer look at her left arm and did a double take. A black bracelet she’d never seen before was solid against her skin just above the wrist, with no visible hinge or fastening. As she gawked at it, prying at the edges in an increasingly desperate attempt to make the band move, flickers of red and yellow pulsed inside the cool, hard surface. The bracelet and what it might mean scared her more than the loss of short term memory or even the unknown sun.

The roar came again, closer, and was answered by another. Something hunting me maybe?

She pushed away from the tree, realizing she was barefoot, wearing her short, pink-and-black nightgown, molded to her body by the rain. Lingerie was her secret luxury after a day spent in technician’s coveralls, but certainly not suited to this experience. Am I dreaming?

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00068]The blurb: 

Jill Garrison, a maintenance tech at the Sectors Amarcae 7 colony, goes to sleep one night as usual only to wake up in her nightgown stranded in the middle of a forest on an unknown world. There’s no time to think as she’s stalked by carnivorous predators and rescued by genetically engineered warriors calling themselves the Badari. Turns out they and she, along with her whole colony, are now prisoners of the Khagrish, a ruthless race of alien scientists. Working for enemies of the Sectors, the Khagrish have created the Badari to be super soldiers.

Aydarr, the Badari alpha, isn’t sure he can trust Jill but his attraction to her is undeniable. He impulsively claims her as his mate to prevent her death at the hands of the Khagrish.

Can he continue to protect her from the experiments already underway? Will his claiming her put his pack in jeopardy from their alien masters?

As Jill searches for a way to rescue her fellow humans and get them all to safety, she finds herself falling for Aydarr, despite the secrets he’s keeping. She has a few of her own.

The situation becomes dire when Aydarr and his pack are sent offplanet on a mission, leaving Jill unprotected, prey for the senior scientist. Can she escape the experiments he has in mind for her? Will she be able to thwart the Khagrish plans and liberate humans and Badari alike? How will she and Aydarr reunite?

  1. What a scary situation, especally not knowing who you are and how you got there. I’m wondering what the significance of the bracellet is – really enjoyed the snippet.

  2. Oh my gosh! In her situation, I would hope it was a dream. I have fallen asleep like that many times, but I’m glad I’ve never woken in a situation like that. I’m always still on the couch or bed with my book or phone (for ebooks) on my face. A great snippet!

  3. If she’s dreaming, I hope she wakes up soon! However, I think she’s not. Love the imagery. Felt her fear and confusion. Imagined her attire how it wouldn’t be good at all in this situation. Also gave us a little insight into her personality. Coveralls by day and lingerie by night. Love it.

  4. Not only is the situation scary, she’s in her nightie. Holy cow! And what is making that noise??? Love this snippet.

  5. Lord, it’s like she’s in an episode of Naked and Afraid (well almost naked). Clothes are one of our first barriers against the world. To be barefoot out in the wild in just lingerie would be scary as hell! Great snippet!
