Knotted Hyperthreads - Snippet from JUPITER for #WeWriWa #SciFi



Welcome to another Sunday with Weekend Writing Warriors. Meet writers in various genres and read 8-10 sentence snippets of their stories. Find a new author and sample their work. Enjoy!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I’m running another snippet from Jupiter, Book 3 in Taxyon Space. Nikki and Kiron have been summoned by Prime Jadel.

I’ve skipped a few lines – it’s in Nikki’s POV.
[Slightly edited to fit]
Jadel said, “The hyperthreads passing through your Earther system have become distorted. The nexus must be stabilized, or else we shall lose the ability to travel between our planets.”
Styx, were they marooned on Rishalt and separated from humankind forever? Nikki pressed her fingers on her lips to stifle a gasp of dismay.
His gaze still locked on Jadel’s face, Kiron caressed Nikki’s hand unobtrusively, “Gracious Prime, where is the nexus located?”
Focusing on his sincere face, Jadel said, “You, as an ex-Watcher, should know; the nexus lies within the stormy gas planet called Jupiter.”
Fighting off her terror of being isolated, Nikki asked, “What do you wish of us?”
“The pair of you, the Ramis Bell duad, will travel to this Earther planet to unravel the knot and clear the hyper-routes.”
Kiron bowed and gave the traditional response, “Gracious Prime, I hear and obey.”
“How will we recognize the aberrant factor?” Nikki asked.

 Jupiter

JUPITER:
A simple hop across hyperspace turns deadly, crushing hopes for a human-Warrish alliance
Nikki and Kiron Ramis Bell are studying the marine life of Rishalt when they are summoned for an audience with the Prime. Tol-Jadel sets them the task of investigating a hyperspace perturbation near Jupiter. They must return to the oceans of Europa and prevent this anomaly from severing the hyperroutes between Earth and Rishalt. But, tensions are rising between Warrish Watchers and the humans on Galileo Station, and Earth’s governments are squabbling over the proposed alliance with the aliens. Can Nikki and Kiron erase the obstacle before their home planets are separated forever?

JUPITER is $2.99 at Amazon  iBooks  Kobo  B&N  GooglePlay

You can learn how the couple met in Book 1, EUROPA.
EUROPA is 99c at Amazon

Taxyon Space, Books 2 and 3
Near future SciFi adventure & alien romance. Daredevil scientist and abused Watcher in perilous alliance.

 Rishalt

RISHALT
Two alien worlds. Two lovers torn apart. Twist the hyperthreads into unity.
Kiron Arqin Ramis is summoned home by his family to the unwanted honor of a new triad and union with a high-ranked female. Unable to forget Nikki, he endures a perilous exile on a wilderness planet instead of complying with his family’s demands. But, the Triarchs have other plans for him.
Stakes are higher than the lives of two individuals. Earth leaders are desperate to acquire the alien interstellar technology, while Warrish dispute the benefit of an alliance with inferiors. Can Nikki and Kiron pierce the barriers separating them to find happiness with provoking an unequal war?

Join psychic superstars, Violet and Athanor Griffin, on this epic adventure, meet aliens of all stripes, and of course, the fabulous dragons of Sythos.
Violet and Athanor Griffin reunite with their baby son after escaping from the world beyond the fiery Cosmic Rift, but they find no respite from troubles. The Grand Masters have declared Athanor dead, and are competing to replace him as Chair of the Counsel. Hordes of bloodsucking Ixioth slavers threaten galactic civilization, and a new enemy has emerged from the alternate universe, an enemy immune to psychic forces. The dynamic couple is soon swamped with pleas for help. Athanor’s vow to crush the insectoid Ixioths and expel the Nulls hits a major obstacle. Their enemies are using the teleportal web to strike and escape to unknown locations, somewhere in the galaxy. Violet has a different perilous challenge. Her promise to rescue the children captured on Cinerea means she must brave the dreadful Rift and lose her psychic powers.

These three novels bring my total output to 14 novel-length books from 2014-2018.

Prime Jadel - Snippet from JUPITER for #WeWriWa #SciFi with alien mermen

Best wishes for a wonderful holiday season! 

I’m back after a week’s vacation on the Gulf Shores to run another snippet from Jupiter, Book 3 in Taxyon Space. Nikki and Kiron have been summoned by Prime Jadel.

I’ve skipped a few lines to where Nikki and Kiron meet Jadel.
Please excuse slightly modified punctuation.
The Prime perched on the low wall around the pond. She wore a dress of lilac satin embroidered with silver spirals and a tight bodice laced over her two pairs of breasts. Her flawless, green complexion had an unearthly beauty, emphasized by the triangle of three diamonds embedded on her right cheek; a mesh cap of pearls bound in silver spirals crowned her bald head. Her gaze was inscrutable.
Immediately, Kiron knelt and bent his head to touch the floor in the traditional obeisance; he murmured, “Gracious Prime, your humble servant, Kiron Ramis Bell.”
In Nikki’s opinion, he performed the ritual with unnecessary enthusiasm; lagging by a reluctant half-minute, she prostrated herself in a similar fashion, and quickly raised her head to intone the greeting. In Warrish perspective, she was an inferior human, an alien Earther, yet she refused to give total obedience to the Primes. Perhaps Kiron owed a greater debt to Tol-Jadel; the Prime had released him from his family obligations in a manner that retained his honor and even endowed him with higher status by her silver mark on his cheek.
In a voice as musical as a songbird’s warble, Jadel trilled, “Ramis Bell Duad, prompt to my command and favored by my luma.” She pointed at a stack of cushions tucked under the arching fern fronds; “Sit before me.”

A trio of luma - snippet from JUPITER for #WeWriWa #SciFi



Welcome to another Sunday with Weekend Writing Warriors. Meet writers in various genres and read 8-10 sentence snippets of their stories. Find a new author and sample their work. Enjoy!

I’m back after Thanksgiving to run another snippet from Jupiter, Book 3 in Taxyon Space. Nikki is recording the marine life when Kiron gets a message from their hostess, Sora.

I’ve skipped again to the scene where an attendant is taking Nikki and Kiron to their audience with Tol-Jadel.
Excuse my minor misuse of punctuation to fit.

A trio of luma, otter-like animals with sleek gray fur and flat scaled tails, scampered out of the natatorium and ran to rub their flanks against Nikki’s bare ankles. Like all Rishalt’s vertebrate animals, they were truly amphibious with gills as well as lungs. The three luma sniffed at Kiron, and the largest one rose on its hind legs to paw at his hand.
He smiled and scratched the fur behind its small ears.
“I think they like you,” Nikki whispered.
The attendant opened the gates and beckoned, “Enter. Supreme Tol-Jadel awaits you in her garden.” Bright light flooded the exit, and a warm breeze wafted a fragrant medley of flowers and herbs into the cool interior space.
The luma circled around their feet, herding them in the correct direction.
As they walked toward the light, Kiron grasped her hand again. Stepping through the gates, Nikki blinked, half blinded by the sunlight.

An Audience in the Pearl Pyramid - Snippet from JUPITER for #WeWriWa #SciFi alien world



Welcome to another Sunday with Weekend Writing Warriors. Meet writers in various genres and read 8-10 sentence snippets of their stories. Find a new author and sample their work. Enjoy!

I’m back after Thanksgiving to run another snippet from Jupiter, Book 3 in Taxyon Space. Nikki is recording the marine life when Kiron gets a message from their hostess, Sora.
You can read my snippet from two weeks ago here:
I’ve skipped again to where Nikki and Kiron learn why Sora called.
Excuse my minor misuse of punctuation to fit.

Smiling at Sora, Nikki said, “We came quickly, and we’re torn with curiosity.”
“Haste is needed; Prime Jadel has summoned you,” Sora’s gaze flicked from Nikki’s face to Kiron’s, “both of you, to an audience in the ninth level of the Pearl Pyramid.”  
“An audience with Tol-Jadel?” Nikki breathed. As First in the Prime triad, Jadel stood at the pinnacle of the hierarchical Warrish society.
A smile flashed over Sora’s olive-green face, “My exalted mother.”
“Sora, can’t you give us a hint of the Prime’s reason for recalling us to Pucklerakt?”
In her blunt manner, Sora said, “No clue has come to my ears; I swim clear of politics.”
“As we do, by preference,” Nikki agreed. “Whatever Tol-Jadel wants of us, I cannot agree to act against the interests of my people, the Earthers.”
“Her goals are ever subtle; you may be unable to decide whether her demand will benefit Earthers or not.”
