This Sunday’s excerpt is from an SFR WIP set in the same universe as my recently published WRECK of the NEBULA DREAM. Andrianda (Andi) Markriss, a planetary representative for Loxton Galactic Trading, has been spending a lazy summer with her best friend in the highly exclusive summer compound of the planet Zulaire’s ruling nobility, networking. On a day when a number of strange and disturbing things have already happened, Captain Tom Deverane, Sectors Special Forces, unexpectedly shows up with a troop of soldiers and demands she leave with him. Immediately.
Andi doesn’t take this very well….in fact, she refuses to go. Later in the evening, all hell has broken loose, as the captain predicted.
She stared at the mansion, trying to figure out exactly where the fire was blazing. The nursery! Adrenalin coursed through her and she jumped to her feet, heedless of the danger. “The fire’s on the top floor where the nursery is. I have to get to the children.” Before Deverane had a chance to stop her, Andi was running, fear threatening to choke off her breath even as she raced uphill.
