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 am still posting snippets from Gargoyle Hunt, Book 3 of Secret Supers.
Danger is the last thing on Estelle’s mind when she visits the University of Oxenford for a summer course. But, mysterious thefts and shadowy figures spur her into action. With Toby five thousand miles away, Estelle and her winged horse must hunt for the culprits alone. Soon they are embroiled in a mixed bag of aliens and ancient magic. Toby’s unexpected arrival throws her into turmoil and spurs events into a climax.
Toby is in London where he has been followed. He walked into an ambush. See last week’s snippet – http://auroraspringer.blogspot.com/2017/01/four-down-snippet-from-gargoyle-hunt.html
Final sentence last week: A hazy streak shot past; a man screamed.
“Need a paw?” Growler snarled. The ghostly shape of the jaguar crouched on top of his victim. Blood dripping from his bare arm, the final thug crawled toward the safety of the main street.
“Thanks, pal.” Pausing to tug his nanomask over his head, Toby dashed after the escaping man. Hoisting the man above his head, Toby glared into his panicked eyes and grated, “Who sent you? You’re dead meat if you don’t answer.”
The man gasped, “Snake Eye. He’ll slay you!” The next second, his eyes rolled up and his breath fled.

At least he could answer before dying. Snake eyes doesn't seem to be the kid of guy to be toyed with. It's good that Toby had some back up.ReplyDelete
Yes, Growler is his partner animal.Delete
Sounds like the threat has only just begun. Intriguing! :)ReplyDelete
Let's say there are several threats.Delete
Toby may have won the battle, but t he war continues.ReplyDelete
Of course! Even past the end of the book.Delete
Quite a tension-filled scene. Sounds like there's more more trouble in the near future.ReplyDelete
Of course, we have several more escapades.Delete
Need a Paw . . .snort! Great action scene, Aurora.ReplyDelete
The animals, Growler and Rockette, are fun characters.Delete
Very intense, Aurora. Is he dead? How did he die? Glad Growler made an appearance.ReplyDelete
Yes, Toby has an idea since he's seen it before.Delete
Dramatic, especially the ending, which was highly cinematic!ReplyDelete
Which I mean in a very GOOD way!Delete
Sure. I have a visual imagination.Delete
"Need a paw?" LOL Great scene.ReplyDelete
Growler enjoys action.
Frightening! Great tease.ReplyDelete

Paws with claws and teeth. Growler is Toby's animal companion.Delete

Looks like someone else got slayed- sorry, was slain :-) instead!ReplyDelete
Some people die in this story.Delete
"Need a paw?" I like it! Intense scene--and so very visual. :-)ReplyDelete
Uh oh. Snake Eye sounds like bad news.ReplyDelete
Yes, doesn't it! Ha ha.Delete
That last line .... tense and intriguing !ReplyDelete
Good - thanks!Delete
I don't like the sound of Snake Eye. But I'm willing to bet he's going to have more trouble than he thought trying to dispatch Toby.ReplyDelete
Of course. Toby is the hero, although he trips up on another matter.Delete
Love this scene and the tense last line!ReplyDelete
And the obnoxious pop-culturist in me says, "From G.I. Joe?" LOL great snippet, Aurora. :)ReplyDelete
This series has a near comic book style.Delete
Wow, dramatic ending! Love the action.ReplyDelete
