Three Words: Describe a Hero or Villain #SciFi #Pietas #MFRWhooks

Welcome to this week’s Book Hooks, a snippet or intro to a book to whet the appetite and invite you to check out more. This week, my post involves three words.

Three Words

How do you describe a hero — or a villain — in just three words? I decided to give it a try with the major characters from my new book, Bringer of Chaos: Forged in Fire. Here’s your chance to meet the Ultras in three words. What are Ultras? I’ll describe them first.

Ultra:
genetically-enhanced, immortal, dangerous

Pietas:
king, intense, heartbroken

Tiklaus:
panther, defender, loyal

Six:
human, friend, outsider

Joss:
lover, guide, telepath

Dessy:
sister, scheming, secretive

Helia:
mother, faithless, agenda

Mahikos:
father, political, monster

And for the book itself:
immortal, exile, angst

There you have it. Although three words hardly do these characters justice, it’s a fun way to introduce each one. There are other characters in Forged in Fire, but we’ll meet them and get their three words another day.

Forged in Fire…

What if you were a soldier marooned on an undeveloped planet?

What if you had no food and few survival tools? What if you’d been genetically engineered? No matter how agonizing the wound, you’d survive. No matter how you died, you’d come back.

It could be worse. You could be here alone. But that’s the problem. You’re not.

On one hand, there’s a tribe of sentient panthers who protect you. Although you hate humans, the one who was dumped on this planet with you has become a trusted friend. The beautiful telepathic warrior you’ve loved since forever is at your side.

On the other hand, half a million people who depend on you are trapped inside stasis pods, waiting for you to save them. It wouldn’t be so bad if you could wake up a few at a time. But the traitors who abandoned you and your followers set the timers to release all half million.

At the same time.

You’re facing an ecological disaster and over five hundred thousand hungry, thirsty, homeless immortals.

Worse still, before you can build shelter, figure out how to grow food, or set up a government, you must take back command from a ruthless enemy you’ve fought for centuries.

Your brutal, merciless father.

Talk about being forged in fire…

Immortals may heal, but a wound of the heart lasts forever.

Bringer of Chaos: Forged in Fire has no profanity or explicit content, but lots of angst, a little humor, some sweet romance, and a ton of betrayal with plenty of vengeance. Oh, and let’s not forget–one ginormous black “kitty”.

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.

    Fantastic 3 word descriptions – took a lot of creativity and brain power. I think by the 5th one, I’d have been down to cool,hot, mean or good as a descriptor

    You did an above average job of making this book seem fascinating. And your three word descriptions are a great idea!

  3. Those three word descriptions are dynamite.

  4. Loved the description in three word section. It made me warm to Pietas.

  5. Lisa Lowe says:

    I am excited about your new book. Pietas fans will love this book. Can it be that the immortal I now hate is not Pietas?
