An Interrupted Wedding 4 - snippet for #WeWriWa from Grand Master's Mate

Welcome to another Sunday with Weekend Writing Warriors. Here, writers showcase their stories with 8-10 sentences. Join the fun and read our snippets.

Today, I’ll continue the horrid wedding scene from my WIP, Grand Master’s Mate, Book 3 in the trilogy. Violet and her Grand Master, Athanor, are at the wedding of her friends, when another Grand Master, the Red Queen, Morrigu, drops in, explosively.

The snippet ended with: Grimacing in fury, the Red Queen zapped red rays at Athanor, again and again.

Her attacks were futile. She was unable to penetrate his shield, strengthened by his link with Violet.
An impasse. Ruby lasers reflected from the translucent blue envelope around Athanor and the people he shielded. Morrigu roared her frustration.
Raising her red arms to the ceiling, Morrigu blasted the intact windows. Glass panes crashed down and Athanor tightened his screen over the helpless people. The roof trusses creaked and snapped, tumbling onto the sizzling blue bubble of Athanor’s shield. He pumped energy into the defensive screen, leaving nothing for a thrust at their devilish red attacker. 

Books 1 & 2 of the Trilogy are published.
Book 1 is 99c from 23-30th

Grand Master’s Game:

  1. These folks are lucky he's there to protect them. I wonder, do they realize he's the one doing the protecting?

  2. Phew! You can feel the sizzle of energy! Excellent job Aurora!

  3. Great snippet, Aurora. Very cool his magic is strengthened by Violet.

  4. Loved your use of language in this excerpt.

  5. This story continues to be so exciting! I'm a little worried that there's nothing left to go on the offensive. Guess we'll have to wait and find out what happens.

  6. Good thing Athanor's feeling so powerful! I liked the way the action kept amping up in the scene. Great snippet!

  7. Exciting scene! I look forward for more.
