Welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!
Okay, this really is the last snippet from JAGER, the second book of my sci-fi adventure romance series, Galactic Defenders. I hope you have enjoyed them all. There are more Galactic Defenders coming, including GIB AND THE TIBBAR, which will be part of the upcoming Pets in Space 2 anthology: Embrace the Romance. Also, Jace will get his own story soon. And I have plans for Scrym, Pollux, Naf, Oflaria, and many more.
Set-up: Last week Jager learned that Jace and Katrina weren’t romantically involved. Well, that left Katrina available, and while locked up and naked, two consenting adults who already shared an attraction to each other became physically intimate. Well, their captor arrived to ruin the afterglow, removing Jager from the cell and shoving in a new cell mate for Katrina. I’m introducing this character, because she is important in JACE. (edited to fit)
Katrina eyed the sleeping green heap on the floor. As much as she wanted to kick the girl, smash her head in until she was dead, she couldn’t. Faith hadn’t asked to be created, hadn’t chosen to be a cross between the most vile creature in the universe and Katrina’s own ancestors. No, Katrina’s anger was with the woman who had created the girl, produced other Erebus-like creatures, then let them loose on the world.
Could the girl be related, though? If the crazy woman had fused Katrina’s DNA with that of an Erebus, Faith was some type of clone. Her sister from the crazy bitch.
How could she look so normal, yet like the enemy at the same time? The girl didn’t have completely red eyes ready to burn a hole through her, or any poison dripping from her mouth, had no body hair, only the fuzzy leaves on the top of her head. She could easily pass as just another race if brought to the attention of the Alliance, but not on Earth; she didn’t belong on this planet.
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.
