Ah, sweet revenge…SFFS for July 21

Greetings, science fiction and fantasy fans!

Today I’ve got a selection/snippet from the opening of THE ELF CHILD, book two in the Clan Elves of the Bitterroot series:

He wanted her dead.

            All the years he’d been alive, Grigor Biren had wanted…something. An ever-changing, vast ‘something’ that seemed to be just out of reach. He had never been able to define exactly what would leave him satisfied.

Until now.

            He wanted her dead. Jelani. The elf queen. The child of elven Linnea and human Vincent Marsh, who’d grown up to return to Montana, to the Bitterroot Mountains, to ruin everything.

And from there evolves a bitter plot that drives that story through the end of book two and into the beginning of book three. But I guess it’s good to figure out your motivation, right?

More snippets from the series are available at the Clan Elves tab above and also at the Clan Elves of the Bitterroot webpage. The books are available at Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble.com, Smashwords and many other outlets, or order it from your local indie bookseller! (We support local bookstores!!)

More snippets from other talented sci-fi/fantasy writers are available at the Science Fiction Fantasy Saturday page, so don’t miss a one!

  1. Definitely a great plot. What better way to start off than with a thirst for revenge…and wanting someone dead. 🙂

  2. I’m with TM. Love the start, and revenge is a nice way to work a plot!

  3. Ah… But what does he want revenge for?

    Great start!! Nothing more gripping than wondering why?! Well done!!

  5. This is a wonderful snippet. Not only is a great look at your work, but this selection of sentences is well written and you can’t help but want to know about this driving need to kill this elf queen. Love it.
