SFFS: Snippet #3 From ALL GOOD THINGS

Welcome back, everyone, to another week of Science Fiction Fantasy Saturday.

For those who didn't already know, my new Aston West "series" novel, All Good Things, is now available for pre-order over at Amazon through the link. It goes live February 12, and I'll continue posting snippets for the next several weeks.

If you've missed an excerpt or more, be sure to check them out through the following:

Snippet #1
Snippet #2

First, the blurb for All Good Things:



 A new ship. A new love. A new life.
An old nemesis could end it all.
Space pirate Aston West never truly came to grips with the death of his friend, Leah Jordan. He’s tried to move on, falling in love with his best friend, Rione Sc’lari. But the memories of Leah’s murder at the hands of twin brothers Lars and Elijah Cassus still linger, gnawing at Aston’s soul as he blames himself for her death. Even though he exacted fatal vengeance on Lars, Elijah has promised revenge for his brother’s demise.
Elijah finally reveals himself, and Aston believes his life is over. But rather than carry out his prior threat, Elijah, possessing a new miracle drug, promises to bring Leah back to life if Aston goes along with his latest diabolical plan. Will Aston risk his newfound love and join forces with the ultimate evil, just to find absolution?


And now, here's the snippet:
I followed, keeping an eye on Rione, but also trying to look off into the darkness for any sign of trouble. If I saw a piece of dust floating in the air wrong, I planned to grab Rione and race out of here. She reached the huddled mass on the ground, kneeling down beside her.

“Are you okay?” She gently pushed the figure to no avail. I saw a small pool of blood below the woman’s head as Rione pressed fingers against the woman’s throat. She bowed her head. “She’s dead.”

I looked at the pool of blood again, and my gut instinct screamed. My eyes went wide and I grabbed Rione’s arm. “It’s a trap!”

“Right you are...” A familiar voice carried in from elsewhere in the room. My skin crawled.

“Elijah?”
Hope you enjoyed it! (And if you don't know who Elijah is, why not pick up a copy of Friends in Deed?) If so, pick up a copy of All Good Things from the link above. And of course, be sure to check out all of the fabulous SFFS snippets through the link at the top of this post.
