“What?” The guy who was obviously in charge looked around wildly but his eyes slid past where they were standing unseeing.

“Where? There’s no one else here.”

“They must be here,” the messenger said, holding out a tablet to the man. “They’re streaming your conversation and once again we can’t block it.”

“But…” Read the rest of this entry »

A/N: Hi, Patreon supporters over $5/month. Can you please confirm you’ve received the emails with the first two chapters of Shattering. Thanks.

Daniel and his mother and their group jumped inside the security perimeter of the large house where the cabinet was supposed to be meeting. Sonia must have scanned the area well because she had positioned them in a small clearing within a mass of rhododendrons but he could spot the house through the branches.

Let’s be careful here, Sonia said. I know the Prime Minister was telling the truth but we can’t assume that no-one else was listening. We’d best be ready for an attack. Read the rest of this entry »

The first leg of the trip from Talis to Corona went off without a hitch and the Whisper and its

escort emerged from hyperspace at the waypoint they’d designated before the jump in order to

swap navigators and check for messages.

“It may not be the preparation that’s delaying them,” Peter said. “The biggest thing they’ll be waiting for is confirmation that their targets are all together. We need to find out the same thing because that tells us how long we have left to plan and how we’re going to prove what they are doing.”

Lydia was about to suggest that they’d best attack the hanger itself and record what the men were saying when the female reporter’s phone rang. The woman scowled at it before answering.

“What now!” she asked in a cold tone, then froze. “You’ve got who on the line? Are you serious?” She listened for a moment then held out the phone to Alexandra. “The Prime Minister wants to talk to you.” Read the rest of this entry »

Immediately after the interview had finished, Matthias waved Alexandra, Philip and the reporters over and told them what Lydia had seen.

“Oh God,” the female reporter exclaimed. “How deep does this rabbit hole go? A coup…” She narrowed her eyes speculatively and looked over at Peter. “This is why they sent you here, isn’t it? They know you wouldn’t go along with this and are popular enough to lead a mutiny.” Read the rest of this entry »

A/N: Hi readers! Repeating this from Monday for anyone who only reads Whisper. Just a quick note to say thanks to all my regular readers. Thanks especially to my Patreon donors and to Alexander Hollins for the first review of Whisper on the WFG. Other readers please comment here if you’d be willing to donate to my patreon with better/different perks (say what) or if you’d be willing to give to a more traditional crowdfunding campaign to raise a lump sum to allow me to write full time for a few months (I need at least £1000 a month for this). You can also help by buying The Dragon Wars Saga books, recommending Whisper to your friends,  reviewing or simply by voting. Thanks again.

Amanpreet and her crew were prepping the Whisper for departure the next morning when Midori appeared again. She looked very worried.

“We found the source of the meteors,” she said without preamble. “We’re warning all traffic into and out of the system because we’ve destroyed this one but we don’t know if there are more.”

“More of what?” Amanpreet asked. Read the rest of this entry »

Lydia knew she should probably be paying attention to what the reporter was saying as they began their broadcast but instead she found herself sitting at the other side of the gym trying to chase down the sense of anxiety that was afflicting her. After a moment, she felt a hand on her arm and looked up into Fellaria’s eyes.

“What’s wrong, my ilsra?” Fellaria asked softly enough not to be picked up by the microphone.

“I’m not sure,” Lydia admitted. “Something is making me anxious but it is doesn’t feel like a premonition – well, not quite.”

“It could be your picking up something else that’s happening right now,” she said. “Show me? Maybe we can chase it down together.” Read the rest of this entry »

The soldiers had apparently got quite close to the school during the attack. There were piles of rubble where walls had been broken through and the grass in front of the school had been churned up but the main building itself seemed untouched.

When Matthias led them into the gym, Alexandra rose to her feet and extended her hands to Peter. “Welcome. I hope you don’t get into trouble for helping us.” She looked even older and more harmless than usual and had obviously done herself up to emphasize her age. Read the rest of this entry »

“So tell me more about Corona,” Amanpreet said later that evening. “If I recall correctly it’s near the Cascade Hyperspace Storm. I hope hyperspace is stable there.”

“Oh yes,” Oni said. “It’s close to the Cascade but not so much that the hyperspace distortions reach it.” He tilted his head. “And the Cascade has been shrinking for the last few years. The hyperspace experts – such as they are – say it should calm down to the point of no longer being a navigation hazard in the next decade or so.”

“Really,” Amanpreet said. “I didn’t know hyperspace storms died down. I thought they were permanent fixtures.” Read the rest of this entry »

Holding Post

Hi readers,

 

Sorry about the lack of an update today. I have had a terrible migraine and still can barely look at the screen. Post will go up sometime tomorrow at which point this holding post will be deleted.

 

Sorry again,

Becka
