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.”
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?
You can learn how the couple met in Book 1, EUROPA.
EUROPA is 99c this month.
As always, I’ll be happy to reply to your comments.
