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 posting snippets from Rishalt, Book 2 of Taxyon Space.
Dr. Nikki Bell is devastated when the Watchers reappear without her alien lover. Why did Kiron return to his home planet without even leaving a message? In search of answers, Nikki jumps at the chance to join the diplomatic team invited to visit the aliens’ home world. On Rishalt, she must contend with the intricacies of Warrish society and an undercurrent of hostility.
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 aliens’ 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?
Kiron has been summoned to his home planet by his family. Note, in Warrish society, adults form triads, units of three men or three women, often siblings. In last week’s snippet, he met the fake smiles of his six parents – two birth parents and their triad siblings.

His mother’s First, Meldrina, a tall thin woman with a neat cap of orange scales, beckoned to him, “Son, you have proved worthy of honor. We have arranged for you to join the new Gold Helix Triad headed by your brother, Bassath.”
“Has my brother recovered his full health?” Kiron asked, unsure if he desired to form a new triad so soon after the fortunate dissolution of the Red Arrows. His memories of his abusive First were still too raw, and he had not spoken to Bassath for years.
Wassath, Bassath’s father, exclaimed genially, “Of course my senior son is well. He is eager to see you.”
Kiron bowed. “I shall be happy to speak with Bassath.” That much was true; he could gauge whether his brother favored the new triad and perhaps learn his view of the advantages.
Rishalt is available for $2.99
