Welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!
I’ve been sharing snippets from JAGER is the second book of my sci-fi adventure romance series, Galactic Defenders. I have a couple more snippets to share before I move on to a new story.
Set-up: Last week Katrina went to shake a Terran’s hand, but ended up on her knees, unable to move. Now that her head has cleared up, let’s find out where she is… (edited from original to fit)
Katrina shivered as she slowly opened her eyes, her head pounding, and goose bumps all over her skin, even on her scalp, making the pain even more excruciating. She moved her leg, her knee brushing across a rough surface. No clothing in between. Her heart hammered as her memories became clear and her awareness grew.
That woman had drugged her, stripped her of her clothes, and shut her away in what felt like a freezer. Katrina stretched her arm above her head, her knuckles scraping against a metal bar. A cage, one too small for her to lie comfortably in.
Examining the area beyond her tiny prison, she spotted many motionless figures standing around her, oddly human looking, though there was something else familiar about them. If only she had more light, she might be able to get a better look. Then one of them drew closer, peering through the bars.
JAGER: Galactic Defenders Book Two
Jager’s new squad of Defenders has completed training, but the spoiled princess who has grated on his nerves since her first day of training is called back to Hemera for a yearly celebration. When Princess Katrina doesn’t show up, Jager must drag her home, where he wishes she would stay.
Katrina is a Defender, not a Princess. And there is no way she wants to return to a planet she hates for some stupid ceremony. Not when she could be out killing Erebus with her squad.
But when a new enemy threatens both their lives, they must work together to survive.
