Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors, the blog hop where authors post 8-10 sentences from their current, newly released, or upcoming work in progress. I’m still posting from the first chapter of Storm of the Gods, so let’s get rolling! Last week, Derek was fighting a dark-scion when he realized his brother, Liam was surrounded and outnumbered. So Derek decides to ditch his current battle in favour of protecting his family…
I smashed my fist into his temple, the force of the blow dropping him onto the ground. I whirled around and saw Liam locked in combat with a woman dressed in a tight black shirt, jeans, and boots, her face covered by a black balaclava.
Crystal clear water coiled around the her hands and glittered under the sunlight. The woman––a water-scion––snapped her wrists at Liam, loosing two snaking whips of elemental water. As the water moved, the end of the lash began to solidify into a tip of sharp ice. An impressive trick that required a lot of skill. Whoever this water-scion was, she was powerful, too.
But my brother had tricks of his own.
Liam ducked and opened his palm, drawing elemental fire out from his skin to rest in his hand. He pushed his hand upward in one fluid motion, the flames stretching and scything upward to melt the ice to keep the water-scion away.
No other updates because I’m on a bit of a time crunch to get some sleep before exhausting myself physically at the Real Job and emotionally with Game of Thrones, but be sure to check out the other Weekend Writing Warriors blogs and websites for your fill of sci-fi, fantasy, romance, and awesome book deals! Until next week!
