Weekend Writing Warriors-Tangled Redemption Snippet 7
Welcome to the Weekend Writing Warriors. Each Sunday we share 8 sentences from a current or finished manuscript. Click here for the rest of the amazing writers participating.
I am continuing to share parts of Tangled Redemption, book 4 in the Celestial Surrender series. I still don’t have a blurb;). My heroine is Sydney. We meet her for the first time in Tangled Hunger, book 2 of the Celestial Surrender series. Circumstances I cannot go into without spoiling everything result in her being kidnapped by a Vampire who has the impossible task of balancing the survival of one with that of a galaxy. I just realised I never mentioned the second Vampire who gets thrown into the equation and tries to find his place with these two. I will try and show Jayden soon. I may have to change his name as it’s pretty close to Sydney.
Tangled Redemption is a Sci-Fi story and takes place in a universe inhabited by humans, Vampires and Naema, a race that has been likened to angels. There is a tenuous peace between the three races, but a faction of the Vampires, the Ferals, does not want to bow down to human law. You could say there is a smidgeon of tension between them and the rest of the galaxy, expressed through a kill-on-sight order against them.
This snippet is a little after last week’s. We are back in Sydney’s point of view. Miguel has just brought them food and water to clean themselves. He is being his usual charming self, meaning he is driving Sydney crazy because she can’t get a read on him. Marissa, the human kidnapped at the same time as Sydney, speaks first.
“With a short nod he left the room. Sydney gritted her teeth, attempting not to notice his sleek movements.
“It is a shame he is the most dangerous man I have ever met. If he lightened up he’d be prime man candy.”
Sydney whirled to Marissa, gaping.
The young woman continued to wipe her face and raised her brows as if challenging Sydney to dispute her words.
Sydney couldn’t and instead burst into laughter. “I want to disagree, just out of principle, but you are right.”
Tangled Redemption is in my editor’s queue;). At the moment Marissa is chomping at the bit and demanding her own story. Unfortunately she has not been in a sharing mood, so I am still working on my outline.
Have an amazing week and as always Happy Writing!

Haha! Yes, Marissa should have her own story. I love this moment of light-heartedness in the midst of their turmoil. Well done 🙂
Thank you. That was exactly what I was going for;).
I’m really enjoying these snippets…of course I want to read the entire story all at once, so enticing! Great 8!
Thank you, Veronica. Hopefully it won’t be too long before it’s out;).
I like Marissa already—and that Sydney is so honest, despite herself! 🙂
Lol, yes, Marissa was a little bit of a surprise. Thank you.
Sounds like the three races agree on what’s attractive.
That they do.
Love that Sydney agrees with her. I laughed right along with her. Lighten up, man! Then you’ll get allllll the girls. 😀 Great work, Tina!
Yes, but he is a brooding and damaged hero. It’s in his job description not to lighten up;). Thank you.
Well, he can be dangerous and attractive–it just means he’s better off ogled from a safe distance.
Lol, yes, indeed.
“Disagree, just out of principle.” I like that line. Nice snippet!
Thank you, Frank.
Love how light this snippet is in the face of such serious stuff.
I needed a break from the darkness;).
Fun snippet, well written exchange!
Fun little 8. Nicely done! 🙂
Thank you, Beth.
I absolutely loved this line “It is a shame he is the most dangerous man I have ever met. If he lightened up he’d be prime man candy.”
I hate it when characters demand stories and then go a little quiet on the details, but it’s always fun when they finally start to open up. Good luck with Marissa!
Lol, she says it like it is;). Thank you, Skye.
I like how candid Sydney is. And Caitlin’s comment made me laugh out loud. Good 8!
