I’m running snippets from the beginning of Jupiter, Book 3 in Taxyon Space. Nikki is recording the marine life when Kiron gets a message from their hostess, Sora.
You can read last week’s snippet here: https://auroraspringer.blogspot.com/2018/11/five-peaceful-hexads-snippet-from.html
I’ve skipped a few paragraphs. Kiron has persuaded Nikki to swim to the island and learn why Sora called.
Please excuse irregular punctuation to fit.
As they waded to the beach, Nikki caught his hand, “I hope this won’t take long, so we’ll be able to chase after the mobile triales. I wanted to trace their migration.”
Gripped by an uneasy foreboding, Kiron stifled a groan. After four miserable years under an abusive First, he treasured every happy moment with Nikki, but their peaceful interlude couldn’t last forever. Did this summons mark the end of their honeymoon? Unwilling to upset Nikki by voicing his worries, he gestured to the veranda, “Sora is waiting for us.”
Their hostess walked to meet them at the top of the beach. With her weathered face and practical clothes, Brisa Sora did not resemble a lady of the highest rank. Indeed, their benefactrix preferred her occupation as a scientist and overseer of the marine preserve to mingling with the fashionably dressed courtiers in the Pearl Pyramid.
A hyperspace hop 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. This anomaly threatens to sever the routes connecting Earth and Rishalt. They must return to the ocean of Europa to identity the cause of the disruption. 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 Europa.
EUROPA is 99c this month.
