Sunday Excerpt — May 11, 2014

More from Sanguine, a science fiction novel (still in progress) with elements of semi-paranormal M/M romance.

(I am done with beta readers, and Sanguine is in next-to-final-edit stage, so this is still a work in progress and the following lines may or may not have been hacked and recombined and creatively punctuated to fit into 10 sentences.)

Skipping ahead a bit to start introducing some other characters – and a few bits of Gregor’s past.  In this post, Kaen and Gregor have gone to clean out Gregor’s quarters on the station.  Kaen  has been looking through a photo album while Gregor packs.  Picking up from last week’s snippet.


“Solovei and Erid’thu are still at war, are they not?”

“Yes.  They would not let me stay, would not let me go to Erid’thu.  They said my Blood is too strong, that it would be too dangerous for me to go there.  Soon it became too dangerous for me to stay on Solovei as well, so I shipped out, working different freighters, drifting…  And always Hunting for the Ferrastin who killed my uncle.”

“What is her name?” Kaen asked softly.

“She calls herself Vivette, Vivette LeMond.”

Again a stabbing pain lanced through Kaen’s temples.

“Master?  What’s wrong?”

“I… I don’t… I don’t know.”  For a moment Kaen’s eyes hazed over.  “It happened when you first mentioned the Ferrastin – it’s like I should remember but can’t…”

  1. Sounds like Kaen’s got a history.

  2. I wonder if the blood wasn’t too strong and now his brain is healing somehow to get the memory to come back. Interesting.
