I'm slowly bringing out snippets from "Genesis," a story that I'd written long ago. So, if you didn't catch the previous snippets,catch the story so far
I can barely watch...Gabriel is sitting there like a sitting duck, while Azrael is ready to gut him like a fish. Now that I'm hungry, it may be time for lunch...but first, let's check today's excerpt:
The beast made a fast step with his left foot, just before the strike, then his face contorted into shock. His eyes widened and his hands trembled violently. The knife clattered to the floor, and his body followed a moment later. He writhed and convulsed on the floor. His companions jumped back, unsure of what just happened. They traded glances between Azrael and Gabriel, who shook his head with a furrowed brow.Be sure to come back next week for yet another installment. Again, I always enjoy your comments!
“I tried to warn you, Azrael,” Gabriel muttered. “The Maker is not to be trifled with, and His plans reign supreme. I only hope He takes pity on your miserable life, for you know not what foolish things you do.”
NO WAY!! Deus ex machina? Personal shielding? Way to leave a gal hanging, dude! This is why I love your books.ReplyDelete
Holy crap! What just happened? A cloaked companion perhaps? I can't wait for the next installment!ReplyDelete
"!!!!!" And now I'm left hanging....sigh.ReplyDelete
I think I may be the King of Deus Ex Machina... ;-)ReplyDelete
I've gone back and read through the story from the beginning. I am deeply suspicious of Gabriel. I don't believe in deus ex machinae - I suspect foul play, instead... I definitely intend to come back for the next installment.ReplyDelete
You know how to write action, T.M.!ReplyDelete
I enjoyed catching up on the snippets from "Genesis" I missed, too.
Thanks for stopping by, everyone, and posting all your comments! :-)ReplyDelete
OK, I don't know what the hell happened to Azrael, but it was awesome. And Gabriel's nonchalance is such an excellent element to go along. More, please.ReplyDelete
Wow. That ruined Azrael's day, huh?ReplyDelete
Great action. Nice snippet.
My kind of action! I'll have to go back and read the lead up.ReplyDelete
I thought Gabriel had something up his sleeve--or is he wearing sleeves?ReplyDelete
Thanks to everyone for stopping by and posting your comments! Only a couple of snippets left in this one...so I guess I'd better start figuring out what will be up after that. :-)ReplyDelete
Well, he will definitely rue that day....I doubt the hand of God played a role here. Gods tend to ignore spaceport bar fights.ReplyDelete
Ooh, very exciting stuff!!ReplyDelete
Cassandra, I'd normally agree...but knowing what I know behind the scenes, I'd have to say that God does protect his chosen ones, especially when they have a duty to perform. :-)ReplyDelete
Thanks to everyone for all your comments!
Argh! Cliff-hanger! Thanks for sharing :)ReplyDelete
Exciting and intriguing. :)ReplyDelete
Thanks, everyone! :-)ReplyDelete
But is The Maker getting some help? Love how calm Gabriel is through this.ReplyDelete
