WeWriWa is here #8Sunday


Welcome friends for another week of www.weriwa.com Every Sunday a group of authors or aspiring authors get together and share a snippet of a release or work in progress. This week, I’m continuing to share from Honor Bound my sci-fi release coming in February. Thanks to Kate,  I changed Councilor Radon’s name to Raiden, LOL. Last week, we left Vaan Galip facing charges of murder. This takes up right where we left off.

Vaan’s lip curled, “I claim innocence of the actions.” His voice rang loud and clear.

Grumbles arose from the crowd which had gathered in the central hall of Vaan’s main compound. Warriors and servants idled by, ignoring their tasks in lieu of viewing the drama playing out before them. Vaan studied the expressions on their faces as well. Some looked pleased, their eyes full of vengeance. Others looked confused and doubtful, as if they could not imagine the claims against Vaan.

“Can we be certain of this claim?”


To save her people, Mikayla S’Apul has only two options: Become a prize in the upcoming battle or take control of her fate. When a worn journal falls into her hands revealing the secrets of a legendary group of warriors, Mikayla realizes it holds the answer to her dilemma. A marriage of convenience is the only way to protect the Raasa people.

Overlord Vaan Galip is the commander of the Warlord army tasked with protecting Kabanians and bringing peace to his lands. Betrayed by one of his own, joining with Mikayla S’Apul would provide her people with protection while giving him the opportunity for vengeance. Falling for the Raasa female was never part of his plans

When a common enemy threatens, Vaan and Mikayla learn the true depth of what it means to be bound not only by marriage but by honor.

    LOL Glad to be of help. 😉 This is a good snippet. I like that everyone’s forgotten they have work to do. So realistic.

    Does his culture demand proof of innocence, or casting reasonable doubt?? Great writing and I love the image!
