*Just as an update, I wanted to let everyone know that Guardian Angel climbed to #3/science fiction on the Kindle(briefly) thanks to all of you who helped spread the word. THANK YOU!
This Friday and Saturday, Guardian Angel will be FREE! I’m doing this to try and introduce new readers to the series as writing on book 2 is now underway. So why blog it? I wanted to give those of you who follow my blog an advance notice, just in case science fiction is your thing. I also hope that a few re-blogs or re-tweets happen between now and Sunday morning. So please, have a free one on me. And as always, I welcome any comments from readers on what the series needs to keep and what could make it better. Thanks!
One November day in the year 2087, everything was normal. The very next, Ancient ships had descended from the sky and just like that, there was no normal. Not anymore.
There were only two governments left standing, the United States and Germany. In mere minutes of news coverage, we had answers to some of mankind’s greatest mysteries. They left shortly after the rise of the Egyptian armies. Not out of fear, that’s for damn sure. To our best estimation, they left so we would breed, expand the population that would eventually be enslaved by them.
The smallest Ancient that anyone has ever laid eyes on is roughly eight feet in height. The largest, about the same. They walk like we do, but that’s where the similarities end. A pasty gray skin, the pupils of their eyes burning with an amber-colored pigment that helps them deal with the rays of the sun, or so we’re told. Transparent skull and bones, which have been linked to their ability to heal quickly. Very quickly.
Sometimes not quickly enough though. In other words, they die. I should know, my unit has killed more of the sky-born bastards than any other group of soldiers on Earth. -Alicia Lucard
