A Planetary Guards Chronicle
A thousand years ago, in the name of ‘the greater good’, a great betrayal occurred. In the name of righteous retribution and justifiable genocide, a peaceful planet is attacked. A civilization a thousand years in the re-building is razed. An idyllic society, steeped in music, literature, and civic duty, is forced to flee the only home they’ve ever known. In middle of the struggle for survival, Shannen ‘Keeper’ Everett, Jason ‘Preacher’ Carrack and Colonel Robert Preyar must find a way to stay alive and thwart enemies no one ever knew existed. The battle for life as they knew it is on.
The initial panic she felt waned. All that was left was violent fury, which had her snapping her head side to side as Paul’s words sunk in and registered in her thrumming brain.
“No. That’s impossible. I’ll never see Jason again…”
“He’ll be joining you shortly, Keeper. It will only be a matter of time.”
Paul made his final mistake, over playing his hand. She could feel it. Keeper lifted her head and Shannen was shuttered away.
“Over. My. Dead. Body. You. Bastard!”
Keeper was beyond seething. She felt an eerie kind of calm come over her, as if Artemis and Athena each had a hand on one of her shoulders and was guiding her along the narrow path of safety through the emotional anguish of the past twenty minutes. Through the Goddesses, she found the strength to stand straight and tall.
