HAPPY NEW YEAR!
I’m running another snippet from Jupiter, Book 3 in Taxyon Space. Nikki and Kiron have been summoned by Prime Jadel.
You can read my snippet from last week here: https://auroraspringer.blogspot.com/2018/12/prime-jadel-snippet-from-jupiter-for.html
I’ve skipped a few lines – it’s in Nikki’s POV.
[Slightly edited to fit]
Jadel said, “The hyperthreads passing through your Earther system have become distorted. The nexus must be stabilized, or else we shall lose the ability to travel between our planets.”
Styx, were they marooned on Rishalt and separated from humankind forever? Nikki pressed her fingers on her lips to stifle a gasp of dismay.
His gaze still locked on Jadel’s face, Kiron caressed Nikki’s hand unobtrusively, “Gracious Prime, where is the nexus located?”
Focusing on his sincere face, Jadel said, “You, as an ex-Watcher, should know; the nexus lies within the stormy gas planet called Jupiter.”
Fighting off her terror of being isolated, Nikki asked, “What do you wish of us?”
“The pair of you, the Ramis Bell duad, will travel to this Earther planet to unravel the knot and clear the hyper-routes.”
Kiron bowed and gave the traditional response, “Gracious Prime, I hear and obey.”
“How will we recognize the aberrant factor?” Nikki asked.
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.
As always, I’ll be happy to reply to your comments.
