Teaser Tuesday – 21st November, 2017

Standard

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by The Purple Booker.
Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Well… this slightly awkward – because right now, I’m rereading my own book on my Kindle to iron out any formatting glitches before uploading it to Amazon. I did consider turning to the next book on my reading pile, but that didn’t seem quite right, either. So I’ve chosen an extract from my upcoming book, anyway.

This is my choice of the day:

Dying for Space – Book 2 of the Sunblinded trilogy by S.J. Higbee

20% “So.” He eyed me up and down. “You’re Elsbeth’s replacement, eh? And where did the old man dig you up from, then?”

I blinked. Whatever they thought, people usually didn’t speak of Norman in such terms and certainly not when a guest at his table. My wariness of this man spiked into dislike. “I’m what is known in polite circles as a love-child.” I gave him my version of Norman’s lethal grin. “But doubtless, you’d call me a bastard.”

BLURB: Cadet Officer Elizabeth Wright just wants to make her father proud, while the mercenary warlord is looking for her to replace his dead family…

I finally get the opportunity to become a serving officer and fulfil my childhood dream, as well as get to know my biological father, General Norman. And when I first clap eyes on Restormel, the HQ of my father’s space mercenary outfit, it’s the most beautiful building I’ve ever seen.

But appearances can be deceptive. There are dark secrets hidden in the twisting corridors and blood-soaked cells beneath the training grounds and banqueting rooms. Secrets that seep out. Secrets that demand fresh victims, because whatever else happens, they can’t be allowed to see the light of day…

  1. Amazon has the first book in this series so I bought it but not this one. It sounds great. Thanks for visiting my blog. Happy reading!

    • Thank you, Ali – I promise I won’t be flooding my blog with my own writing! But this time around, as I’m actually reading through it, it seemed wrong not to do so…

    • Thank you, Louisa – I’m glad you like the character. She is the main protagonist throughout the series – I’m hoping to be on the final rewrite of, Breathing Space, the final book in the trilogy by February.
