Welcome to another Saturday of Science Fiction & Fantasy and read snippets exchanged by several writers. http://scififansat.blogspot.com/
My contribution this week is from my WIP, Grand Master’s Mate, Book 3 in the Grand Master’s Trilogy. This scene, the interrupted wedding, takes place early in the book. I apologize for the repetition to anyone from weekend writing warriors. Violet and Athanor are at the wedding of her friends, Tessa and Phineas. The Red Queen Morrigu has crashed the wedding.
Last week, the snippet ended with Athanor dropping his disguise to protect the wedding guests. You can read it here: http://auroraspringer.blogspot.com/2015/10/2nd-snippet-for-sffsat-from-interrupted.html
His mind merged with Violet’s and he griped, “She looks more devilish than ever.”
“Let me help.” Pressing her hand on his shoulder, Violet supplemented his energy. Athanor concentrated on protecting the innocent attendees of the ceremony from Morrigu and from his own deadly psi emissions. He couldn’t easily attack Morrigu at the same time.
Athanor commented to Violet, “Her fourth arm’s a fake. You severed it in the battle and she cannot easily generate a new one.”
Swinging towards Athanor’s tall figure, Morrigu yelled, “Griffin, you’re a voidal, half-blind fool, protecting the unpowered norms. By Ragnar’s fire, I’ll blast your remaining eye and slaughter your puny pawn.”
A tsunami of red psi energy smashed against Athanor.
His hatred congealing into icy steel, Athanor stood firm, holding the psychic screen over the wedding attendees. Grimacing in fury, the Red Queen zapped red rays at Athanor, again and again. Her attacks were futile. She was unable to penetrate his shield, strengthened by his link with Violet.
Books 1 & 2 are published.
