Clutch~Fledge~Flight – the first three books in the epic science fiction fantasy saga that spans five full length novels and one novella. The final book, RETURN, will be released on December 2, 2013.
Nineteen year old Rural Republic sniper, Junco Coot, has been lied to. Not once or twice, but pretty much everyone she ever trusted is totally full of sh*t. And now her father is dead, she’s on the run, and everyone wants a piece of her—including one winged alien warrior named Tier.
But the truth always catches up and Junco has to choose who she should trust. The people who have lied and trained her to kill since she was a small child? Or the warriors who want to steal her away and use her as the catalyst in a plot to fight the final battle in an ancient war?
It’s a choice that will change her fate forever. And once it’s made—there’s no turning back. Life becomes nothing but brutal killing in the name of vengeance. But everything requires sacrifice—everything has a price. And Junco is about to find out what it means to dedicate herself to saving someone else.
EXCERPT FROM CLUTCH BOOK ONE
Tier throws down his rifle, takes a deep breath and looks at Moju. “My charge is out, give me all the grenades.”
Moju leans heavily against the wall, fishes around in his pockets, and pulls out three canisters and hands them over to Tier.
And that’s when I hear the clicking from the hallway behind us. “Shit! They’re back!”
From the hazy cloud of thick dust a massive amalgamation of bot parts appears. I scream and both Moju and I train our rifles on the thing that comes towards us. We blast it back a few paces and it’s forced to reassemble. I steal a look at Tier and he’s already pulling the pin on the first grenade and running back towards me yelling, “Fire in the hole!”
Moju dives for the corner as Tier grabs me and yanks me to the floor. The blast renews the ringing in my ears and I’m disoriented as I struggle to my feet. Tier pulls me up and then we are running again.
Moju is bringing up the rear and firing hard at the reassembled thing behind us. But it’s made a weapon and it fires, causing a projectile to skim past Moju’s thigh. He falls and I break free of Tier to go back and get him. I fire a continuous stream of plasma at the amalgabot for several seconds, then grab Moju and yank him up and pull him back towards Tier. Moju aims his rifle at the creatures that are now filing through the hole as Tier pulls the pin on the second grenade and tosses it out on to the highway.
We hit the deck again, just as the explosion blasts body parts in all directions and now I know my hearing is fucked forever.
Moju pulls me up and we half limp, half run towards Tier who waves us through the smoking hole and out in to the main tunnel. Before I even know what’s happening Moju is in the air and his talons have me by the waist. The razors puncture into my flesh as he grabs me with his hands, but I can’t even feel it. Then Tier is out in the hallway and the remaining creatures are all over him. Moju swings around and I fire my rifle at the creatures, hoping to God that the stream doesn’t hit Tier.
Tier breaks the grip of one that has him by the shirt and takes flight.
I am just about to breathe a sigh of relief when the MR tanks roll through the cloud of dust clogging the far end of the highway and suddenly there are hundreds of soldiers piling out of vehicles.
Tier yells something as he points down the tunnel and Moju and I take off, flying back towards the hole we came down. I hear a final explosion and then Tier is below me and Moju screams, “Ride with Tier, I can’t carry you, Junco!”
And then I am falling through the air.
