I'm actually afraid to admit how long it's been since I last took part in #sffsat. Suffice to say five releases in six months hasn't left me time to even breathe. So sticking with the adrenaline rush theme of the last few months, I'm sharing a snippet from my superhero romance When Dark Falls. Here, my heroine has had a confrontation with the villain of the piece, and is trying to make her getaway. But it's not going well... 


She screamed, and let the sonics rip free—her last resort. The cry blasted Dark across the room and smashed him into the far wall. Tubes of glowing liquid exploded and sprayed across the room. A siren wailed. The heavy metal door of the chamber slowly swung closed.
Emergency seal? She didn't stop to consider the consequences, and dove for the ever narrowing gap. She made it, but shutters were coming down at either end of the corridor, sealing her in with a slow, steady inevitability. She ran for the window, reached for the skin at her back and threw herself through the glass.
Pain smashed into her skull, and for an instant nothing but that filled her awareness. She opened tear-filled eyes. The tower streaked past her in a blur of dimly gleaming metal and pale lights as she fell. Moving her arms seemed too much effort.
I'm going to die...

  1. Looks like your heroine is in trouble - a superhero without flight? Very remiss of her. Let's hope she's got some other way to avoid going splat! Good snippet - I like action scenes like this!

  5. That's using your head. ;) I like how you added the human element to your superheroine with her acting on instinct like a normal person.

    1. Well, thinking isn't her strong point, that's for sure. :)
