Welcome to another Saturday of Science Fiction & Fantasy and read snippets exchanged by several writers. http://scififansat.blogspot.com/
For a change of pace, my contribution this week is from my unedited WIP, Grand Master’s Mate, Book 3 in the Grand Master’s Trilogy. Note: the dragons are reptilian sentients and the walliths are “watchdog” reptiles from the planet of Sythos. The Brululians resemble giant lobsters.
I’ve jumped to later in the same chapter with an action scene starting in the great hall of the Black Dragon’s eyrie. You can read last week’s snippet here –
A small brown dragon popped into view, flying in midair towards Ythris. “Attack on Illoris!” it croaked.
Silence fell within the great hall.
Acting fast, Ythris ordered, “Seltos, peep at the portal station.” The copper dragon vanished.
“My children!” Gullish wailed, clutching at the nearest little Brululians.
“We’ll get them,” Athanor grated, leaving Violet momentarily uncertain whether he meant the attackers or the Brululians on the moon. “Both,” he sent, grabbing her arm.
The rock walled hall disappeared as they spun into the void.
“You retrieve the Brululians and I’ll hold off the attackers,” Athanor’s command winged to Violet.
Emerging under the dome of the portal station on the moon Illoris, Violet blinked at the confused melee of the attack. Giant amoeboids rolled over the rocky surface like gobs of gel. One wallith thrashed on the ground, leaking blue blood from its ripped limbs. The second wallith tore pieces from a pale green blob.
Seltos was nowhere in sight. Violet guessed he had scouted the moon and already returned to report to the Black Dragon.
Books 1 & 2 are published and Book 1 is FREE from 28-29th August.
