HAPPY NEW YEAR!
I’m still running snippets from Jupiter, Book 3 in Taxyon Space. Soon, I hope to switch to my WIP, Book 3 in Atrapako on Eden. This story was selected by the votes of my newsletter subscribers.
You can read my snippet from last week here: https://auroraspringer.blogspot.com/2018/12/knotted-hyperthreads-snippet-from.html
I’ve skipped a few lines.
Prime Jadel has set Nikki and Kiron the task of clearing the hyperroute between Rishalt and Europa. She foresees they will succeed in this task.
Please excuse my misuse of semicolons to fit 10 sentences.
Kiron glanced at Nikki for confirmation; his eyes widened in a smile, and he caught hold of her hand. Turning to Jadel, he said, “Urish, we will serve you as the Ramis Bell duad.”
“Your union has my blessing, and I have a special gift,” she pursed her pale lips in a low whistle.
A patter of paws heralded a new arrival, a small luma with blue-gray fur and a streak of white along its spine. It bounded to Nikki and rose on its hind paws to sniff at her fingers. It wore a pearl-white collar with a central zigzag line of silver and a triangle of tiny diamonds on the top.
“This young luma is your gift,” Jadel sang.
“What a brilliant gift,” Nikki laughed in genuine delight.
Kiron bent down to offer his hand to the young luma; it scrabbled its paws on his legs. He caught the luma in his arms and hugged it to his chest where it clung to his jacket and licked his chin.
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 advanced preparation for my next story, the first book in Atrapako on Eden is on sale for 99c. I wrote The Lady is Blue about 3 decades ago and finally published it in 2014 at the beginning of my career as an author.
SciFi Romance. Feisty scientist solves puzzle of scaly aliens on the remote planet of Eden.
As always, I’ll be happy to reply to your comments.
