The Last Vhalgenn

The Last Vhalgenn

Welcome to another week of Book Hooks, the weekly meme hosted by the MFRW Authors Blog. Here?s a chance each week for readers to get hooked on a new book! Authors each share a short excerpt from their books. If you enjoy the sample, consider purchasing the full book.

This scene takes place between Orix (the king) and Raik (the Vhalgenn). They’ve loved each other since they were old enough to say the words, but his royal, arranged marriage separated them. Raik has come back to deliver the message of a battle, and is alone with him for the first time in ages. It opens with the king speaking.

“Vhalgenn, I promise. She’ll never know.”

“No!” I moved away from him. “She’s no fool. She’s your queen and she’s risking her life to have your child. The least you can do is be faithful.”

The look of horror on his face tore out a piece of my heart. Then I realized he was looking past me.

His pregnant queen stood in the darkness, right outside the door.

About Kayelle Allen

Kayelle Allen did a tour in the US Navy, where she climbed around airplanes (on the ground of course) fixing black boxes that helped pilots find their way home. She wrote her first science fiction novel at 18, and to this day, it’s hidden under the bed, where she vows it will remain. Gems from it, though, launched several series in her galaxy-wide universe of stories. From childhood, Kayelle was the victim of an overactive imagination and inherited the Irish gift of gab from her mother. From her father, she got a healthy respect for mechanical things. No wonder she writes Science Fiction and Fantasy peopled with crazy androids, mythic heroes and warriors who purr.
