Weekend Writing Warriors-Tangled Redemption Snippet 9
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;). We first meet Sydney in Tangled Hunger, book 2 of the Celestial Surrender series. She ends up kidnapped by Miguel, a Vampire who has the impossible task of balancing the survival of one with that of a galaxy. And then there is Jayden. His one mission is to take out the Big Bad, but now he has to balance her life with his job.
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.
In last week’s snippet Sydney came face-to-face with the Big Bad, surprised how the monster responsible for so many deaths and horrors looked so normal. Unbeknown to her Jayden, an undercover agent from the Vampire Council, is in the same room. They work for the same people, but have never met. We are in his point of view.
“Jayden Maywater mentally cursed in every language he could think of. And in some he just made up. What in Jade’s name was Sydney Radnall doing on Nagola? He leaned back in his chair and crossed his legs.
Notification had gone out to all the operatives as soon as the kidnapping in Parvati happened. The intel had also said that Calatrave was involved, but when Jayden had asked where the Spaniard was, he’d been told dealing with a problem. Jayden had not expected this problem to be a civilian Naema who had nearly died at the hands of her husband and then decided to join their operation.
The pictures he’d seen didn’t do her justice.”
For the first time I have received edits for two books at the same time. Both Tangled Redemption and Dirigible Are Forever are in my inbox. It will be interesting to see how I will cope with both of them;). I had an Ah-ha moment for one of the stories I am planning, which is nice. Now I just need to figure out the two other stories that tie into this one.
Have an amazing week and as always Happy Writing!

Very intriguing 8. Makes me curious about this world and the intrigue occurring.

Me thinks love is in the air. 😀 Loved this excerpt, Tina! Good luck with all your edits–when it rains, it pours! 😉
Lol, love is in the air for sure;). Thank you, Evelyn, I’m working on digging out my brolly…
Two at once? My brain hurts just thinking about it. (Two book edits, that is. Could see how that might be misinterpreted.) Love the snippet. It’s nice to get more background information on this world and a possible rival is always a good thing.
Lol, believe me, my brain is hurting. And yes, it is two at once, just not quite yet;).
Keep it coming, Tina. It’s wonderful to be desired.
Thank you, Charmaine.
Last line says it all : )
*waggles eyebrows* Indeed;).
The idea of edting two books at once has me cringing.
Hopefully it won’t be too bad, Sue Ann.
Sounds like quite a mess to untangle!
Indeed, Botanist, quite the mess.
Good luck with the edits! Enjoyed the snippet, a lot to think about.
Thank you, Veronica.
I’m guessing he likes her! I’ve gotten two sets edits at the same time–aiyee! I feel your pain. What’s worse are two releases at the same time–which is often what follows two sets of edits. Hope that doesn’t happen to you.
Lol, he does;). Thank you, Cara. One comes out the beginning of December, so I have a little bit of time. Not sure about the other release date yet.
You have to be pretty emotional to make up languages to swear in! He knows they’re on the same side, but does she? I see some awkward moments coming if she doesn’t.
She doesn’t know they are on the same side and he is cursing so viciously because he now has to choose between his mission and ensuring her safety. It’s a bad spot to be in.
I like the character in him that shows in this snippet. I’d crawl in that man’s, um, mind anytime. 😉 Excellent, Tina! Good luck with the double edits. If you are MIA, we’ll come looking for you–to make sure you’re okay. 😉
Yay, I was hoping for that response;).
Lol, thank you, Teresa. It will be ok.
Your writing flows so naturally it’s always a little bit of a jolt to get to the end. Good luck with the edits!:)
Wow, thank you for the compliment, Eleri. And thank you for the good wishes;).
When it rains it pours. I’ve done two edits at a time. Lots of work. I love the excerpt and the sound of this guy.
Thank you, Elaine.
