On Hiatus

I'm taking a short break from the internet for August, so this blog will be a little quiet for the rest of the month and into the first week of September. In the meantime, there are scheduled posts going up every Wednesday at my cosplay blog - The Intergalactic Seamstress - and at the review blog Critique de Book, plus the odd up to date post at Spacefreighters Lounge on a Tuesday (or you can find my fellow crew mates posting Monday-Friday). See you when September comes!

Hello! Welcome to another #sffsat snippet, and I'm continuing with Nocturnelle's fall to her...death? Before I share, I need to explain that her superpower is a second skin that makes her invulnerable, and has certain other interesting abilities. You're about to discover how her encounter with a super-cooled coffin had rendered one of her powers useless...

I'm going to die...It was an idle thought. Would she? Falling from this height, without her skin to hold her back, would it kill her? She'd never put such a thing to the test.
And she wouldn't now. She tugged at the skin at her back. It tore as she pulled. The black membrane fluttered uselessly in a mass of tatters and holes, sending her into a spin.
No! She'd lost chunks of it to the super-cooled sarcophagus. Resistant to bullets, blades and heat, but not to extreme cold it would seem. Black lace wrapped her in a deadly embrace as she tumbled. 

Oh no! How will she get out of this alive?! :P

    1. It'll teach her not to be so reliant on her supposed invulnerability, though. :P

  2. Falling to your death is never the opportune time for new discoveries - unless that discovery is a parachute. Super cooled sarcophagus - sounds like a rock band - just liked the way this phrase flowed. As always - a great fun snippet!

  3. That can't be good. I hope there's something soft for her to land on!

  5. This is not a good situation for her. Nope. Not good at all.
