THE GIRLS FROM ALCYONE: Freelancer
The Girls From Alcyone is the continuing story of two very special young women who find themselves at the heart of a conflict spanning more than forty worlds.
THIS WEEK: I've decided to forgo the usual setup and just post the snippet. Sure, it's out of context, and, sure, you won't know what's going on, but this way there's no evil spoilers! And, hey, it's Sigrid. :)
They were troop carriers, Thunderhawks, and they were moving fast, closing on their position, and the rooftop offered little in terms of cover. Twin cannon mounts extended from their sides, swinging into firing position and taking aim.
"Ms. Novak—Sigrid," the agent implored, pulling on her sleeve. "We need to move!"
Sigrid scanned the area quickly; they were outnumbered and the situation was deteriorating quickly, but the CTF agent was wrong about one thing. These mercenaries might not be the men she was looking for, but they were still men, and they still hunted them.
"If you have a plan," Suko said, her eyes fixed on the incoming carriers, "now's the time to share it."
"Plan?" Sigrid unholstered her twin 18 mm sidearms. "We kill them all."
