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 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 with the fight taking place on the moon Illoris. You can read last week’s snippet here – http://auroraspringernovels.blogspot.com/2015/09/snippet-on-sythos-for-sffsat-from-wip.html
Placing her hands on his shell, Violet poured healing empathy into the Warden.
Reaching a clawed forelimb to the wounded Brululian, Istrelle sang, “Let me aid our brave Warden Gulpah. Save energy for your Griffin.” Stepping aside, Violet sensed the silver dragoness radiate her despised empathy to ease the Brululian’s pain.
Her Griffin, Athanor, had remained on Illoris to deal with the invaders. Shutting her eyes, Violet focused on their resonating crystals and saw through the amethyst he wore. Many transparent amoeboids oozed out of the portal. The coppery Seltos swooped back and forth, ripping into the enemy with his sharp claws. Athanor blasted holes in their membranes; they shriveled and died. More poured through the portal and filled the portal station with their pulsing bodies.
One pushed a metal box and cracked open the lid. Gray smoke billowed from the box.
“Port out!” Violet’s thought arrowed to Athanor.
“Hades!” Athanor groaned. Their link snapped.
Books 1 & 2 are published.
