The wedding interruption continues - 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 horrid wedding scene from my WIP, Grand Master’s Mate, Book 3 in the trilogy. Violet and her Grand Master, Athanor, are at her friend Tessa’s wedding when the Red Queen, Morrigu, drops in, explosively. Am I channeling Jedi knights here?
A lady in a pink dress has just appeared. You can read last Sunday’s snippet here:

In a voice like dry leaves shivering in the breeze, Amarylla called, “Brightness will shelter the unpowered.” Her white light ballooned round the distraught wedding party.
Released from guard duty, Athanor zoomed toward Morrigu like a tall blue flame. The Grand Masters collided in midair. Beams of red and blue scissored through the atrium. Livid coils of psi energy surged through the air, crackling between the two combatants.
Brandishing her sword, Violet leaped into the fray and her star mark blazed purple fire.
Alarmed by the double threat, the Red Queen broke away. 

Books 1 & 2 of the Trilogy are published.

  1. Too much for the Red Queen! Very colorful scene, Aurora!

  2. I love the visuals from the colors. Great snippet! :D

  3. (airpump) Take that! You have created such a sense of power and threat over the last few posts. I hope Morrigu disappears with her Psi tail tucked away!

    1. Or does she have another trick in store?

  4. I loved how Violet's star mark blazed purple fire. I can so see that, Aurora.

  5. As always, love your use of the colors.Lots of action here, great snippet!

    1. Only for those who are conscious. The bride is not.

  7. Great use of color. I've enjoyed that in your other snippets too.

  8. Entertaining and vivid snippet. Reminds me of the Red Wedding in Game of Thrones. Well done!

    1. Thanks - the idea for this wedding came from Jupiter Ascending.
