SFR Brigade Presents: Battling Rapture #sfrbp

Here is a 200 word excerpt from my new Ellora’s Cave release, Battling Rapture.

She filled bags with medicines, needles and bandages. She saw a pile of hospital gowns and shoved those in too. She had a little of everything loaded into the packs, including soap, hospital toothbrushes and sheets. Their third salvage mission might be their last. The next time they came, the entire place could be vaporized. This was the only city for miles which still contained the original architecture and infrastructure—even if it was in ruins.

She walked to the gaping hole in the wall. Craters dotted the landscape. Some were filled with buildings, others with vehicles. The building across from her had the top two floors collapsed in. All the windows were blown out. She looked down. Movement caught her eye, and she quickly hid behind what was left of a pillar. She carefully peered down again and relaxed when she noticed it was only a pack of stray dogs.

At least it isn’t a lion or tiger from the zoo.

She heard a whistle, and then a man stepped into the doorway.

“You ready, Niki?” Antoine said.

“Yes, let’s get these down to the wagons and go get the others. I hope they found baby formula and ammunition.”

    Fantastic excerpt. Can’t wait to read more.

  2. Very intriguing setting and situation. On my TB list!

  3. Sounds like a very good book, can’t wait to read it! The excerpt got MY attention right away LOL.

  4. I love it! The beginning made me feel like I was immersed in a SF first-person shooter (I’m an avid gamer) but then you added the twist about finding baby formula. Nice!

  5. You hooked me with the mention of baby formula. Suddenly the scene of devastation became real and personal.

  7. A post-apocalyptic setting? I like it. 🙂
