“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,

“Your men don’t know you’re not human, do they?” Matthias asked as they waited for Claire to arrive with the reporters.

Peter shook his head. “No one outside my family knows that. It would be a bit much for them, I think. A few of my closest staff know I have powers though. Including Jean – the one who just brought me the message about withdrawing. He wanted to know what I was going to do here because he was sure we’d be sent again and he doesn’t like the idea. He suspected I’d insisted on coming so I could talk to you as well.” He looked over his shoulder just as Sonia stiffened and looked in the same direction.

“Here they are,” he said. “And it looks like Jean is with them. It seems he had the same idea.” Read the rest of this entry »

As they waited in the shadows for Peter to finish talking to his subordinate, Lydia felt her father reach out to the unicorn who was helping them.

Is everything he said true? he asked.

Yes, everything, she replied. I like him ­ you should help him find his heart friend.

I thought so, he said. I’m glad. And we will once the situation is a little more stable. Read the rest of this entry »

“Do we know how much of the Vaian Defence Force is still at large?” Sangat asked once they had returned to the station. “This Corona mission is going to be very difficult if they are appearing and shooting at us.”

“A handful of ships maybe,” Oni replied. “Our escort seem to think as much anyway and I guess they’d know.” Read the rest of this entry »
