I’m continuing snippets from my new SciFi Romance story, ALARIK, book 4 in Taxyon Space. The alien “merman” Alarik is living on Earth, disguised as a human. In last weekend’s snippet, he received a surprise virtual visit from his boss, Triarch Webale.
You can read last week’s snippet here: https://auroraspringer.blogspot.com/2019/12/welcome-to-another-sunday-with.htmlI’ve skipped his report to the Triarch. At the end, Alarik was ordered to visit Mars and investigate the crashed alien ship. He is still in the seedy rented room when he noticed a man behaving suspiciously.
Excuse my misuse of semicolons to fit 8-10 sentences.
Hidden behind the blinds, Alarik focused his scope on the face of the man at the corner of the building. Luckily, the man’s mouth was visible, and the special translator converted the movements of his lips into words, “Alien signals originated in this block; above ground level; maybe third to fifth floors.”
From his room on the fourth floor, Alarik grimaced and swore under his breath. He had to escape and warn his triad brother; once their covert presence was detected, Earth was no longer safe.
The man standing below paused, evidently listening to instructions. He whispered, “Yeah. Wait for reinforcements; got it.”
Anxious to leave before the Earthers arrived to investigate, Alarik clipped his toolkit on his belt and stuffed his belongings into a small pack. He looked around the dingy room. He wore gloves to avoid leaving fingerprints, but he couldn’t remove all traces of his presence; DNA extracted from strands of hair and flakes of skin could be analyzed to reveal his alien identity.
Two people fleeing their planets discover a shared destiny.
When an alien spacecraft crashes on Mars, the repercussions sweep throughout the solar system and endanger the fragile new alliance with the Warrish mermen.
Alarik Kenton Tallis, First of his Triad, is forced to infiltrate human society on Earth as a spy to insure his injured brother receives proper medical care. But when his transmissions are detected, he must flee the planet.
On Mars, Phoebe Wong, a veterinary scientist with dubious family connections, is desperate to escape the underworld gangs terrorizing the domed city. She jumps at the chance to join the colonists bound for a distant exoplanet.
Their paths intersect on a space ferry bound for the outer planets. Trouble created by the mysterious spacecraft pursues them to Jupiter. Will they find the answers in the oceans of Europa, the hyperspace gateway to the stars protected by three diverse species?
