Urazi, the hero of Warrior, searches for Anika on war-torn Parseon. When he encounters a couple of vagrants (Hoari and Icor), he asks if they have seen Anika. A little detail you should know: when she ran away, Anika was wearing Tara the Terran’s boots. I had to employ a little creative punctuation and rewriting to make the excerpt fit in eight sentences. We are in Urazi’s POV, the first line is Hoari’s:
“About three weeks ago, we captured a female for our use, but I do not think she is the one you seek.”
“Female drakor.” Icor spat.
Do not let it be Anika. I would prefer to not find her, than to think she encountered these alphas.“And why is that–was her appearance so unseemly that she would produce ugly offspring?”
“She was not unattractive for a female,” Hoari replied, adding, “she had a bounty of hair and amber eyes, and she wore the oddest footwear–Terran, I suspect.”
A female fighting for freedom. A male armed with determination. Can they save their people?
As a despotic Qalin marches through Parseon intent on conquering every province, Commander Marlix pledges his sister to another Alpha to protect her. Desperate to decide her own fate, Anika flees and finds refuge with the guerilla resistance movement against Qalin. Marlix’s beta Urazi, a male of lesser status, tracks her intending to bring her home to fulfill her duty. But when love blossoms between them, and provinces fall to Qalin, Anika and Urazi realize home has ceased to exist and they alone are all that stand between the people of Parseon and the end of the world.
