For those who saw the previous two installments, I'm once again bringing out a snippet from my latest Aston novel Death Brings Victory.And I tried my best to get away with three snippets completely devoid of Aston's Law, but I couldn't help myself:
Rione asked, “Ready to be a martyr?”
“Not today.” I pressed my lips tight.
Commander Sevil became more irate. “Power down, now!”
I looked down at the screen again. All three cruisers reached weapons range, locking on to us in unison. Red warning lights flashed around the lower canopy sill, and dual concentric red rings flashed around the symbol representing our ship. High-pitched, rapid beeps blasted our eardrums through the helmet speakers.
We were about to become space dust.
If you enjoyed this, be on the lookout, because a full first chapter is bound to be making the rounds soon...and in the meantime, check out all of my novels!
"Ready to be a martyr?" Great line! Talk about setting up the conflict...ReplyDelete
I do love Aston. He faces certain death with such flair.ReplyDelete
Perfect scene! I was right there, waiting to become space dust right along with him.ReplyDelete
Oh no!! Great tension, suspense, and action sure to come. Can't wait!!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Jason! I liked that line myself. :-)ReplyDelete
JC, that he does...and in this book, he gets to do so with far more than his fair share. ;-)
Heidi, I certainly hope none of us turn to space dust anytime soon. :-D
TK, I can't wait for everyone to see the whole book, either. Hee hee... :-)
Great stuff! Aston is as entertaining as always.ReplyDelete
He'll never learn, will he. Be interesting to see how he gets out of this one.ReplyDelete
Indeed, his escapes are almost as much fun as the trouble he gets into.ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by, everyone!
Oh, crap! How's he going to get out of this one?ReplyDelete
Another nice, entertaining snippet!
I guess one will have to pick up a copy (hopefully going to be out in the next week or two) and find out... ;-)ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by!
Ashton, in dire trouble again! Love it.ReplyDelete
oh dear. What a martyr lol! At least he has such a positive attitude to adversity :-DReplyDelete
He's just really obstinate, Laurel... ;-)ReplyDelete
Glad you enjoyed it, Melissa!
Thanks everyone for stopping by!
'about to become space dust'?! Noooooo!ReplyDelete
Love it :)ReplyDelete
Glad you enjoyed it, Misa...and Pippa, this actually comes from fairly early in the book, so if we're going with the odds... ;-)ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by!
