Set her free - Snippet from Super Starrella for #WeWriWa



Welcome to another Sunday with Weekend Writing Warriors. Here, writers in different genres showcase their stories with 8-10 sentences. Join the fun and read our snippets.
Today, I’ll continue the scene from my new release, Super Starrella. Estelle was knocked unconscious in an explosion, and when she woke, she was tied down in a strange place. Read last week’s snippet here:
The final sentence was: The image of his sullen face and black ponytail flew into her mind, Toby, the hunky young man with the motorbike.

What was he doing in this strange place? Curiosity dampened her fears and sharpened her hearing.
The first man asked, “What do you know of this girl, Tobarian?”
 “She is paired with a mare as her Farleon companion,” Toby’s twang again. Was his name really Tobarian?
“Excellent! Set her free and watch for her powers to emerge. We need every recruit for our cause.” The man in charge sounded enthusiastic.

Super Starrella

Blurb
Teen superhero, Starrella, and her flying horse tackle villains in the skies of Atalanta.
The quiet summer before her freshman year turns frighteningly weird after Estelle Wright trespasses onto an Army base. Blown into the air and knocked unconscious, she wakes with a nascent superpower. Not to mention a winged horse with a snarky attitude and a mind of her own.
Back home in Atalanta, a serial killer is targeting the students at Goldman University. Before long she must juggle college classes with sneaking out of the house after dark to battle alien monsters. Estelle’s life is in danger, but who can she trust: handsome Captain Copper from military intelligence, or hunky Toby, the tough gangster with a motorbike? Both men have secret agendas, but falling in love is not in their plans.
Young adult superheroes, quirky animal sidekicks, and a dash of romance enliven this thrilling adventure. Book 1 of the Secret Supers.

  2. Hmm. A bit cavalier of him? Just wire her up and see how she manages? I am looking forward to finding out what Estelle makes of all of this.

  10. She's definitely impressed ... as in roped into a press gang against her will, a la the historic British Navy.

  13. This is so mysterious. Though I wonder if someone held prisoner at first can decide to join the cause of her captors.

    1. She was hit by an explosion, so she may not be a prisoner in the way you imagine.

  16. Enthusiastic captors for unknown abilities and powers of the captive yet is never a good sign. I wonder just what those powers are he's going to hang on hope for. Love how she can't help but wonder if that's Toby's full name.
