#WeWriWar, Snippet Sunday - Children Of The Mist: Tamarith


Welcome to Weekend Writing Warrior and 8 Sentence Sunday, the weekly hop for everyone who loves to read and write! We've got a variety of genres and talented writers just waiting for you to come sample their work.

Writers share an 8 to 10 sentence snippet on Sunday each week. Be sure to visit the other writers - they're listed below:

If you'd to share your own 8-10 sentence snippet, whether published or not, follow the link and sign up. It's a great community to be a part of! 

I'm currently sharing excerpts from Children Of The Mist the second book in
The Destiny Trilogy. This is set on Niflheim, a planet close to the heart of Jess, who features in the first book. The heroine is one of her closest friends, Tamarith.

 Thanks so much to everyone who has been following this series, and left comments xx

This snippet carries on a bit further from last week's snippet which you can read 
HERE  As usual I have used some creative punctuation, not in the published version, in order to comply with the sentence count.

Welcome, Vidarh, not quite how we were expecting you to arrive. 

The young woman, at whose feet he had fallen, was pleasing to look at, even if her expression was one of bemusement. He'd formed a vague picture in his mind and thought she would be attractive, although he had not expected her to be so stunning. Large, dark eyes framed with feathery lashes lit up her delicate features. Thick black hair in a long braid reached almost to her feet, and the close-fitting riding gear she wore emphasised a petite, shapely figure.

Tamarith smiled, an action that made her seem even lovelier, and extended her fingers in the Nifl custom. How did you do that? The question whispered in his mind, and he sensed no one else heard it.

I'll tell you later, he telepathed, also withholding his reply from the others. I'm not entirely sure myself, I've only managed very short distances previously. 

BLURB
Two minds united against a common foe. Two hearts afraid to show their love: Long ago Tamarith fell in love with a man she can never have, and is convinced she will never love another. However, she cannot help but be intrigued by a handsome stranger whose psychic powers exceed even her own.

Vidarh seeks only to find his true purpose in life and to win the regard of his father, who eschews his son’s psychic abilities. Thrown together by a common threat to their planet, then torn apart by an evil greater than any they could have imagined, can Vidarh save the lovely Nifl woman who has captivated him, before it is too late?

Will Tamarith and Vidarh overcome the deadly enemy who threatens to destroy all they know and love? Will they find the happiness they both seek? Or are they fated to live their lives alone?

    1. Hi PT! Yes, I think he was - he's still trying to understand and control his powers of teleportation!

  5. Hi Christina, yes, there's been a definite chemistry between them since their minds first connected. She doesn't quite accept it yet, though.

  9. I'm assuming he teleported, or something along those lines? Perhaps he managed it because his soul was drawn to hers?

    1. You're spot on, Ed - These two will become soulmates, They have some tough trials ahead and will learn how to share each other's respective gifts.

  10. She's been guiding him all along, but he's never seen her face to face?

    1. That's right The Nifls use telepathy as their primary means of communication, but a global cricis has necessitated as many of them as possible comming together physically

  11. He might not quite get it, but it worked--he made it there! They better stop "whispering" to each other, though, or someone will notice, even if they can't 'hear' it.

    1. You have a point there, Caitlin. He's a bit self conscious at the moment though, so doesn't want to make to much of his teleportation!

  12. Nice "meet"! Love the secret communication!
