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 still posting snippets from Rishalt, Book 2 of Taxyon Space. Also, I've switched to a new cover.
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?
Following the conventions of Warrish society, Kiron’s parents have betrothed him and his brother to young women of superior rank. Kiron’s brother Bassath has shown him pictures of the lovely ladies. As youngsters, the brothers were close companions, but they have grown apart during the four years Kiron served as a Watcher on Europa.
You can read last week’s snippet here –
Bassath insinuated, “Have your four years in the masculine enclave of Watchers dulled your appreciation of female company?”
Note: Minor abuse of semicolons to fit.
Kiron replied bluntly, “I thank you, but I prefer to choose my own mates.” Would Bassath appreciate his dilemma? He could not decide.
As if he suspected the truth, Bassath asked, “What is the source of your reluctance? Why don’t you welcome this match with the beauteous granddaughters of noble Rostras?”
“I met an Earther woman in the waters of their moon, Europa.” Kiron stumbled through an explanation, “Saved her from death on the ice; we met in secret; she’s sweet and brave, and she became precious to me.”
“You became intimate with a two-breasted alien?” Bassath groaned, “Oh Kiron, you are worthy of a better mate than a primitive Earther.” He gestured to the images. “Our union with Rostras’s granddaughters offers prestige and resources. If you wish, you can bring your Earther woman to Rishalt; give her a landhouse on Pucklerakt, and slip out to visit her without the knowledge of your legal mate.”
Two alien worlds. Two lovers torn apart. Twist the hyperthreads into unity.
