This week, I'm jumping ahead a little bit (can't give away *ALL* my goodies, after all) in FALLEN. Aston escapes Jaysen Ro for the time being (as if there was any doubt), but has crash-landed on a nearby planet. Enjoy today's snippet...
Swapping out new modules for new ones took no time at all, and I certainly hoped Ro’s ship had suffered more damage than mine. If not, my escape plan was going to be short-lived.
Except Jeanie had to make it all the more interesting. “There appear to be several beings approaching.”
“It can’t be Ro and his thugs.”
“These seem to be natives of the planet.”
“Can we still lift off?”
Jeanie took a moment before responding. “The most likely result would be to cause them harm from flying sand from the underbelly exhaust ports.”
It was still mighty tempting, considering I didn’t know these people at all.
While you're waiting for next week's snippet, be sure to check out all of my other novels and novellas.
I hope he doesn't hurt them. I'm sure they're just coming to lend a hand!ReplyDelete
Or other body parts, perhaps... ;-)ReplyDelete
How does Aston always manage to get himself in sticky situations. I'm not worried though. He'll find a way. He always does. Great snippet!ReplyDelete
Well, technically, he's not in a sticky situation...yet. ;-)ReplyDelete
Swapping new for new?ReplyDelete
Not sure I follow...?ReplyDelete
...but he's a better man than that, right?ReplyDelete
Great snippet, as always.
Hmm..what a dilemma.ReplyDelete
He's not going to right?
Well, we never quite know how Aston's going to react to people or situations...it's part of his undeniable charm. ;-)ReplyDelete
Bury them all in your wake and get out while you canReplyDelete
That would be the smart thing to do, given his track record...ReplyDelete
Ha! Aston, be nice!ReplyDelete
Something tells me that this particular situation isn't going to be as bad as his other encounters. Then again, knowing his history...ReplyDelete
One always has to keep that in mind...but maybe it's a mobile spacecraft repair unit or something. ;-PReplyDelete
Thanks everyone for stopping by!
