Her Secret Name - Snippet from Super Starrella for #WeWriWa #Superheroes

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.
I’ve been giving you a glimpse into Estelle’s secret life as Super Starrella. Her winged mare, Rockette, was rescued by a large cat, and Toby appeared, wearing a black mask and nanosuit. You can read last week’s snippet here: http://auroraspringer.blogspot.com/2016/06/what-does-it-mean-snippet-from-super.html

Glaring at him, she probed, “Wait; how did you know my secret name?” 
“Your mare told my cat.” He looked behind her and she twisted around. Over in the shadows, Rockette and the black jaguar faced each other. The winged mare tossed her mane and lowered her nose, while the big cat rose on its haunches and lifted a large paw to tap the horse in a friendly greeting.
“They’re getting acquainted,” Toby said. “The jag cat is Growler.”
           As if on cue, the black cat looked toward them and its eyes flashed red. Toby stared at Growler for a second, and then beckoned to Starrella. He barked, “Big attack on Centennial Square.”  



This is the last snippet I’ll give you from Super Starrella. The book is available if you want to learn more about these characters. Teaser: Toby has more surprises up to the last page!  Next Sunday, I’ll be visiting Snowdonia, Wales and probably will skip the snippet. Later, I resume with Starrella Falls, Book 2 in the Secret Supers.

  10. "Growler" is such a perfect name for him. Neat that you've made the animals into characters in their own right!

    Enjoy Wales! My brother and sister in law toured there a couple of years ago and they loved it. :-)

    1. Thanks. Yes these two animals are definitely characters, especially Rockette.
      I visit Wales most years since my brother lives near the border.

  11. Looks like these two are going to be teaming up! I love how the animals are their own characters as well. And putting a mare with a big cat, two of my favorite animals, I love it.

    Nice cover for the second book in the series too! I like it!

  12. With all this talk of your trip, which of your superhero's companion will a whale?

    1. A whale wouldn't work in Atlanta. I have dolphin-like animals in Grand Master's Mate.

  13. Great how the animals are all characters here! And you know how I am loving your kitty!

    1. The animal companions are a special feature of this series. But I don't think Growler would like to be called a kitty.

  14. I love the cat's paw tapping the horse
