Andrew was awestruck every time he saw Naria’s dragon form. She was nearly thirty foot long, beautifully sleek and serpentine, and her sapphire blue scales glittered in the sunlight. If it was possible he thought she was even more beautiful than in her human form.

Stop admiring me, Drew, Naria snaked her head around and touched the very tip of her nose to his like an extremely large cat. Given that her head was bigger than his entire body, it was slightly disconcerting. Now hurry up and get on. We don’t have time to waste. There was a pause. It’s nice that you think I’m beautiful, though. Read the rest of this entry »

A/N: repost because the original was causing a redirect loop

“The main thing you need to know about an expedition to a prohibited world is that even on a sanctioned expedition landing is still completely forbidden. Indeed we must take great care to avoid being seen from the surface.”

“I can see why,” Amanpreet said. “From the surface we’d appear to be an unusual astronomical phenomenon if spotted and that could could influence the development of their cultures even without contact. But it won’t be easy especially since you say they are launching their first extra-atmosphere vehicle. How do we observe and avoid being seen?” Read the rest of this entry »

A/N: It helps if you paste in the body text, Becka. y.y

Okay, sweetie, Julie said after the imp was gone. Feed in your vision now and we’ll deal with it first and see where to go next from there.

Right. Emily said. There was a pause, then more images began flowing into the merge. As Emily had said, her premonition had given her an aerial view of the school and its surroundings, allowing them to see the moment the attack would be launched: just as dusk was turning to full night.

This is the largest clarification anyone has done in living memory, Julie said once the merge was complete. There may have been a larger one back when all this started, but the psychometric records – even with the addition of my family’s hidden archive – are so incomplete we can’t be sure–

Very interesting, Caro. The interruption was dry. But we don’t have time for a history lesson, so get to the point. Read the rest of this entry »

“Good,” Amanpreet said. “By the way, are they voting on the biosphere restoration plan soon?”

“For Talis you mean?” Oni asked. “They already did a few days ago. It was approved unanimously. The scientists have already moved the eggs into a large habitation dome and the Talis computer has released a few bio-robots to tend them now they are out of stasis. The linguists are making inroads on their language as well, thanks to the computer learning to understand you.”

“Yes,” Niobe said. “I imagine that would help.” Read the rest of this entry »

“We’ve scanned the whole island around Silenia and there’s no sign of any troops yet,” Julie said when she and Tara returned. “Not even enforcing the curfew: probably because not many people live there. There’s no sign of anyone approaching by boat either. I suppose they might fly in but that would be noticed and I suspect they’ll want to keep this quiet.”

“There’s no sign of troops here yet either,” Alexandra said. “But we’ve heard back from Adrian. He’s awake and recovering from the after-effects of his premonition but is still too shaky to jump. However, they’ve questioned the prisoner and apparently Robert is a Kithreian interloper as well. We’re trying to track him down because if we can break his disguise we might be able to stop this before it starts, but he’s hiding himself.” Read the rest of this entry »

Tarian and Karilya were together when they found them. He was unconscious and Karilya was sobbing in Valeria’s arms. She looked up as the group entered and pulled loose, running to Lyrrekka.

“Mummy! Bad people are coming!”

“We know, sweetness,” Lyrrekka knelt down and hugged her while Sarah hurried to Tarian’s side.

“Thank goodness you’re here,” Valeria said. “I was going to come and find you but I was trying to calm Kari down first. I take it these two weren’t the only ones it happened to?” Read the rest of this entry »

Haventon Born Epilogue

Start | Chapter Twenty Three Part Three| Index | Book Two Start

A/N: Calling my posting the epilogue of book one late would be a bit of an understatement. And it ends rather cliffhangery. Sorry about that but here it is finally. As I have already mentioned anyone who becomes a Patreon patron at the $5 level or above will get access to the rough draft of Book 2 – Lord of the Wolves – as I write it this month and if we reach $250/month total pledges I will start posting it on the site August. If we don’t then I will start posting either when we reach that many pledges – or January 2015 whichever is earlier. I’d really like it to be earlier, but either way I will post it in the next few months. I don’t want people to think I’m holding it hostage.

For the third night in a row Laurel woke in the gloom of dusk to find that she couldn’t move.

She’d spent the first night desperately reaching out for her blood master and finding only a mental fog that stopped her cries for help reaching beyond her skull. She had just as desperately racked her brain trying to remember how this had happened but her memories of the previous few nights were confused and tattered. The overriding image was a memory of a someone attacking her and then a dark haired vampire woman kneeling beside her looking worried. The hole in her memories only increased her terror and by the time the tiniest but of dawn light slipping into her refuge plunged her back into unconsciousness she was on the verge of panic.

The meeting chamber for the council of planets had been very carefully designed to allow it to be shared by species with such radically different physical needs without favoring one group over the others. So the vast circular room was divided into three equal slices separated by crystal walls with the chairperson for each group at the point.

As Amanpreet, Niobe and Kayla entered the human section the chairwoman waved them to three seats just behind her. As they headed over Kayla nudged her and whispered. Read the rest of this entry »

Adrian’s face was drawn when they reached the chamber where he was resting. The glowing imp that had been hovering around Adrian since it arrived had gone – presumably absorbed. Indaturan immediately sat on the edge of the bed.

“What did you see?” he asked gently.

“The same thing the others saw,” Adrian replied. “You know what they saw, right?” Read the rest of this entry »
