Today, I am super excited to say I am part of the blog tour for Dominion Defiant. This is the second book in the Dominion Trilogy. I am hosting an extract from the book. I have to say it sounds good. Thanks to ZooLoo’s Book Tours and Chris Cloake for the extract.
Socha saw the Luroghs’ harsh peaks tear into the underbelly of grimy clouds that had become a permanent feature above their heads. The thought of the climb was daunting but then a positive thought struck her. The ascent would slow their progress and give Rupert a chance to catch them up. Her captors’ pace had slowed noticeably anyway, as if none of them wanted to reach the destination. They bickered frequently, complained about carrying the provisions and accused each other of being cowardly.
All this suited Socha. Though they had passed beyond the thicker snow and ice, their progress through the broken, sulphurous landscape was halting. There was time to watch the substantial Ashlars lumber in search of fungi. She searched in hope of seeing a flower or a green leaf, she missed the blue sky and feel of sunshine on her skin. Vucusa watched her, pressing ragged bottom teeth into his top lip while ruminating on the implications of their mission. When a large jet of steam erupted violently near them, making her stumble and fall, he shuffled urgently over to offer his help. She rejected his outstretched hand with a swipe of her own.
How intriguing does that sound?! I am posting the synopsis and the purchase Links for anyone who, like me, wants to buy the book. You will find them under the synopsis.
An ancient adversary in the east seeks to invade Ordefima and claim the treasures it holds.
When his beloved sister is captured, Rupert, the youngest son of the ruling family, is sent to save her. As the power of the enemy increases, can he overcome personal tragedy, emotional entanglements, and lost allegiances to emerge as the hero? Or will subversive forces and increasing austerity inspire the people to rebel against him?
