SFFS: A Snippet From DEATH BRINGS VICTORY

Welcome to another installment of Science Fiction Fantasy Saturday on the blog. Thanks for all the feedback you give on my snippets, and be sure to go visit all of the other writers through the SFFS link above as well.


I've decided to put an end to my snippets from "Genesis" but I sadly have nothing new in the pipeline to post. This means, I get to put up material from my published works instead. Hopefully everyone already knew about and bought my latest Aston West novel, Death Brings Victory, and has read it from cover to cover. If so, read this snippet and act shocked. If you haven't done any of these things, then read this snippet and go get yourself a copy. And of course, Aston's fans will be glad to know his luck hasn't changed one bit:
“If there’s something I’ve said or done to upset you, I’d appreciate you letting me know.”

We stepped out through the large doorway into the central hub, heading for the opposite side of the room.

“It’s nothing,” she told me.

I heard an explosion before the shockwave knocked me to the ground. While confusion reigned, I looked back at the bar, engulfed in flames. They hadn’t extinguished, so at least the outer hull hadn’t been breached.

My thoughts were immediately on Rione. My vision grew narrow and darkened as I looked over at her limp body, unable to tell whether she was alive or dead. My instinct was to check her, but I couldn’t move my limbs. Fear screamed through my body as darkness enveloped my mind.
Ahhhhhh...feels good to put him through the ringer like this. Again, I always enjoy your comments, so be sure to leave some. Hope all of my American friends had a Happy Thanksgiving, and we'll catch you next week with another snippet.
