From #Free prequels to #Eternelles series: ADRASTEIA #snippetsunday

Hey peeps!

How's your weekend going? It is bl**dy cold here. Okay, so 14C might not be a big deal for ye all who get snow and -something temps, but it's the tropics here. When it's hot, you feel the heat awfully well, and when it's cold, well, let's just say you really find that cold seep into your bones. I swear, winter temps in London weren't as ruthless as winter on the higher plains of a tropical island!

Anyhow, it's Sunday, so it's time for the snippet again! Did you know we have FREE prequels for the Eternelles series? These went live on a few platforms last week, and we have some more outlets today.

What is Eternelles about? It's a mother-daughter duo fighting supernatural crime and evil from the fictional small town of Shadow Bridge on the eastern US coast. These two women are immortal, and a prophecy embroils them in a plot to save the world against creatures that want to enslave humanity and all other sup races.
Amidst it all, there are typical generation gap conflicts between parent and child, and there are the hot and dangerous men vying for their attention and their hearts.

Inescapable, Book 1, is available on all major platforms. My co-writer, Natalie G. Owens, and I wanted to give something back to our readers, so we came up with the idea of prequels. Each of us wrote a short about how things changed for 'our' character.

Mine is Adrasteia, aka Adri. She is the daughter of a Greek god, and has lived on Earth for over two thousand years. On a night in France in 1887, everything will change for her....

I started this tale last week; you can catch up here. The next few lines follow.

He yelped as he landed on the dirty cobbles, and drew to his full height of impressive seven feet when he stood again.
Adri simply cocked an eyebrow, not impressed by his display of superior power. Ares, the Greek god of War and the formidable warrior, had nothing over her. She’d broken through his shell when she’d been barely five years old; he wouldn’t make her cower in her shoes two thousand, seven hundred and ninety-five years later.
Ai sto diaolo,” he mumbled as he returned to a more reasonable six-foot-something height and dusted the mud on his coat.

       She stifled a giggle. Go to Hell? Seriously?


You can grab the full story at the following platforms.

Smashwords ~ Kobo ~ iBookstore ~ Amazon US & UK (Not free yet; please report for price matching)

Seraphine, Natalie's prequel, is also available at all these retailers.

Don't forget to check the official Snippet Sunday list on the FB group. Among them are fab authors like Sarah Wesson, Karen Michelle Nutt, Cindy Arnheim, Siobhan Muir, Sue Ann Bowling, Linda, & Jess Schira.

I hope you'll grab your prequel copies, peeps! And let me know what you think when you get them! *grin*

Have a lovely Sunday, ye all!

From Mauritius with love,

You just showed us how to make something impressive seem ridiculous. Good job!

Do I detect a hint of sexual tension? I love that she makes him seem a fool. Love it when a woman can bring a man down to size. ;) Terrific snippet!

Best line of the day! :D

Downloaded my copy! I am not sure if I did the price report thingy on Amazon, but I tried. This sounds great! The last couple of lines made me giggle.

Denise Moncrief said...

Whoa, great snippet! I love the humor in this.

Siobhan Muir said...

I could see her retort "You first." Great snippet, Zee, and thanks so much for the mention. :)

A kick-ass heroine who cuts men down to size. Love her, Zee!
