Super Starrella - Next Snippet 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 teaser scene from my new release, Super Starrella. Estelle was knocked unconscious in an explosion. When she woke, she was tied down in a weird cylinder and heard strangers discussing her. Then, a woman entered and gave her a drink. Read last week’s snippet here:

The second time she woke, Estelle grew angry, remembering what Dr. Netta had done. They had drugged her; she had to escape from this peculiar Clinic. This time, the transparent cylinder had vanished and she lay on what appeared to be a regular hospital bed. Her strength restored, Estelle sat up and slipped her legs over the edge of the bed.
She waited, listening for any sound from her captors; all was quiet.  
Gathering her courage, Estelle padded round the room and opened the cabinets, one by one. Her clothes hung in a tall cabinet on the back wall, next to a bright blue leotard and matching leggings. A shiver of certainty ran down her spine. As a child, Estelle had dreamed of being her favorite comic book character, Super Starrella, and flying across the sky chasing villains. If she wore the costume, her name would be Starrella.

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.


Soon, I'll switch to the next book in this series, which is coming together slowly.

  3. I find it interesting the leotard happened to be hanging there with her clothes. Will she put it on as she'd dreamed? Interesting snippet!

  4. Hum, that's sort of strange that they have put a costume there. Is there a possibilities that they read her dreams to give her exactly what she wanted?

    1. No. They left the costume. She chose the name, although if you read the book carefully, there is a hint that other people read the same comics.

    1. The people who provided the costume don't know about her childhood dreams. The nanosuits are standard issue to new supers as you may learn next week.

  13. Hmm. Gotta wonder how these mysterious folks knew about her childhood fixation on Super Starella. Methinks they may have some superpowers of their own.
