I’ve returned from California and you can see some photos
on my Blog Post.
This weekend, I’m posting a different scene from later in Cosmic Wars, Book 5 of the Grand Masters’ Galaxy.
The Griffin family is at home.
I apologize for minor misuse of punctuation to fit into 10
Violet was in the nursery, cleaning her son’s messy face, while he squirmed and giggled. She idly tracked the other inhabitants of the castle with her empathic senses. Athanor knelt in the library, his mind focused on the task of programming a drone to watch over Yellia. Rascal padded around the book shelves, idly swishing his tail; the cat was intrigued by the surge of activity since his master’s return. The Jacksons were heading for the vegetable garden, trailed by the lone fluffy. Violet smiled; her family was at peace, engaged in their normal routines.
A crack of thunder rattled the windowpanes.
Varan bawled in fright.
“Hades, we’re under attack!” Athanor’s shout resounded in her mind. Instantly, he appeared at her side, bristling with psi flames.

So many interesting details. I was enthralled with them all! And I loved their reaction to thunder, obviously not used to it. :)ReplyDelete
Thanks. It's either unusual or else Athanor was alerted to intruders.Delete
So much for peace and quiet! Very dramatic change in tone as the thunder (or the attack) sounds. Great snippet!ReplyDelete
Athanor always was overprotective! Wait for next week.ReplyDelete
What a way to break a peaceful scene!ReplyDelete
They rarely get a moment of peace in this bookDelete
Love how she can check in on everyone. Though I must say, I’m glad my mom didn’t have those powers! :-)ReplyDelete
Such a peaceful scene - broken so suddenly and without warning. Hope it's just thunder and not an attack, what an enthralling snippet!ReplyDelete
Thank you. You'll find out next week.Delete
So much for peace and relaxation!ReplyDelete
Not much chance of that in this book!Delete
Not thunder at all. Too bad -- this is much worse.ReplyDelete
Maybe - lolDelete
There's not going to be any peace and quiet for a while it would seem. Enjoyed the snippet.ReplyDelete
I'm told this story is very intense.Delete
It was so peaceful and calm until the thunder. Great snippet!ReplyDelete
Good snippet. They thought cannon fire was thunder? Interesting.ReplyDelete
It's not cannons.Delete
WOw--shattered that idyllic moment! Great job of setting it up. I was lulled into the moment. :-)ReplyDelete
That's the idea! lolDelete
If that really is just thunder Athanor's reaction is about on a par with my dog's. LOLReplyDelete
Lovely details in this snippet.
Oh - my dog hate thunder too.Delete
