Releasing Rage – Cure For A Book Rut

By Cynthia Sax on November 6, 2017

We all get into book ruts. That’s part of reading.

I usually break out of a book rut by trying new-to-me subgenres of romance and writers.

Insomnia Book Club broke out by reading Releasing Rage. Woot!

“Releasing Rage by Cynthia Sax sounded a bit different from the books that I normally read. I have read plenty of paranormal books but never one that revolved around cyborgs. Maybe I got lucky with this book in particular but either way it got me out of the infamous book rut! The e-book was actually hard to put down. Thankyou Mrs. Sax!”

Half Man. Half Machine. All Hers.

Rage, the Humanoid Alliance’s most primitive cyborg, has two goals—kill all of the humans on his battle station and escape to the Homeland. The warrior has seen the darkness in others and in himself. He believes that’s all he’s been programmed to experience.
Until he meets Joan.

Joan, the battle station’s first female engineer, has one goal—survive long enough to help the big sexy cyborg plotting to kill her. Rage might not trust her but he wants her. She sees the passion in his eyes, the caring in his battle-worn hands, the gruff emotion in his voice.

When Joan survives the unthinkable, Rage’s priorities are tested. Is there enough room in this cyborg’s heart for both love and revenge?

Balvan And Dark Flight

By Cynthia Sax on July 13, 2017

I’ve received messages about Balvan, the giant green gatekeeper of the Refuge. He appears in Chasing Mayhem, Dark Thoughts and Dark Flight.

He threatened to take over Dark Flight. I had to limit his scenes because he tended to steal them. Which wouldn’t be fair to Orol and Rhea. They had their own thrilling tale to tell.

Balvan’s story is next (Dark Strength – releasing early 2018) and I can’t wait to write it. Due to his size, the modified humanoid has spent his lifespan being misunderstood. Folks are scared of him. They don’t know he can be a gentle giant (when he’s not crushing skulls).

Balvan is deserving of love yet he doesn’t believe he’ll ever experience it. So he showers love on the tiny creatures he rescues. (The puffker in Dark Flight belongs to him.)

I’m looking for the perfect female for him. It won’t be Paloma, Rhea’s sister. She is much too young for Balvan. He views her as he views the puffker – as a being to care for, to protect, to dote over. Paloma, I suspect, being a self-absorbed teenager, might also unknowingly put another dent in that big heart of his. Balvan tends to become attached to the beings he cares for.

Which makes the hunt for his female even more important. Once he finds her, Balvan will never let her go.

Third Scene From Dark Flight

By Cynthia Sax on July 3, 2017

Dark Flight is releasing on July 11th (it is available for pre-order today). I’m sharing the first chapter.

Read the first scene here: http://tasteofcyn.com/2017/06/19/first-scene-from-dark-flight/

This is the third scene.

***

She reversed the thrusters on the right side. That slowed the spin. It didn’t stop the ship’s descent. It plowed into the ground nose first, the boom temporarily deafening Rhea.

She flew forward. The harness caught her before she hit the console, the straps digging into her shoulders and stomach. The breath whooshed out of her body.

Beams crashed to the floor around her, narrowly missing her chair. Viewscreens shattered. Pain, sharp and intense, jabbed her left shoulder, causing stars to explode in her skull and the bridge to spin merrily around her.

Severed circuits popped and hissed. The ship stopped moving.

Rhea sagged, her back touching the chair, and agony coursed through her, causing her vision to gray out. She straightened once more, reached behind her, touched metal. Something the size of her hand stuck out of her body.

The shard was foreign and frightening and she wanted to remove it. Now. But her father always told her panic resulted in poor decisions. She tried to wiggle the fingers of her left hand.

They didn’t move. Her arm was useless. The shrapnel must have sliced deep, probably had severed veins. She couldn’t treat the area, could barely reach it. If she yanked the metal out of her shoulder, she’d bleed to death.

It had to stay where it was. Using her right hand only, Rhea unfastened the harness, pushed herself to her feet. She swayed, lightheaded, and looked around her.

Guns. She’d need guns. There was always one in the front pocket of her flight suit. Rhea never went anywhere unarmed. But she needed more.

Opening the compartment under the console, she extracted a similar gun plus one long gun, slipped the smaller weapon into her pocket and slung the larger one over her right shoulder. Her vision blurred, the pain excruciating.

She staggered across the bridge, avoiding the live circuits hanging from the ceiling. The wires snapped and crackled with energy, lighting the darkened space.

The ceiling had collapsed over the doorway. The floor had buckled. The combination left only a small opening to exit through.

Rhea eyed it. The hole was tiny but so was she. She might be able to fit through it and there really was no other choice. It was the only way off the bridge.

She crawled up the wreckage, moving as quickly as possible. A downed ship on a supply-challenged planet would attract scavengers. And her sister was alone, would be scared. It was Rhea’s responsibility to protect her.

Her right knee brushed against debris, its edges extremely sharp, and she sucked in her breath, more pain added to her misery. Warmth dripped down her shin.

The panel she was balancing on shifted, tilting out of the door. She slid down the piece of metal, was airborne for a heartbeat. Guns fired. Projectiles zinged past her.

She landed with a plop on the sand and rolled under the ship, almost passing out as the shrapnel in her shoulder was pushed deeper into her body. Breathing heavily, she grabbed the long gun with her one functioning hand.

The air was hot, dry, smelled of mechanical lubricant and projectile residue. Debris from the ship blocked her from sight, providing a shield to hide behind.

Judging by the directions projectiles were being fired from, there were four, five, maybe more attackers. She was injured, was only one being, had use of only one hand.

But she was an excellent shot. Her mother had called her a natural. Rhea had practiced, improving her skill, until there had been no one in their settlement who could match her.

That skill hadn’t saved her parents. When the Humanoid Alliance arrived at their domicile, Rhea faced a choice. She could rush her sister to safety or stay with her parents, protect them if needed.

She had chosen Paloma, always Paloma, as her parents had always chosen the Rebel cause over their offspring, going away on missions as soon as Rhea was able to care for her sister, not thinking how their double life affected the young females, how it put them at risk.

Rhea had hidden Paloma in a nearby cave and returned to the domicile in time to see her father and mother executed, shot in the heads in front of their home. Marowit, the male who had betrayed her, watched, silent, no expression on his handsome face.

When it was done, when her parents’ bodies were lifeless and still on the stone pathway, puddles of blood pooling around them, the Humanoid Alliance officer in charge had turned to Marowit and smiled, told him his loyalty would be rewarded.

Marowit made a quip about how fucking the plain sister was the ultimate sacrifice and the warriors had laughed, laughed as her mother and father lay dead on the pathway before them.

Rhea had burned with anger, wanted to put projectiles in both of them and in herself for being so foolish, for believing she’d ever be anyone’s priority. She had been a cover for her parents and a mission for Marowit. That’s all she’d been.

But shooting the male would have brought her location to the Humanoid Alliance’s attention. They would have caught her and executed her. That would have left her innocent, trusting sister alone in the cold, unforgiving universe. Paloma wouldn’t have lasted long.

As she wouldn’t last long on Carinae E alone. Rhea was Paloma’s best option for survival and she wouldn’t fail her. She’d put her sister first, before her own life, bring her to safety.

To do that, she had to clear the space around the ship.

She poked the muzzle out of her hiding spot, balancing the weapon on her shoulder. Shots rang out. She listened, watched the angle of the projectiles. The enemy weren’t very intelligent, shooting again and again from the exact same spot.

Rhea tapped the trigger several times in rapid succession, altering her aim slightly with each shot.

No more projectiles originated from that location.

She’d killed someone. Guilt gnawed at her. Rhea ignored it. The beings, like her parents, had known the risks. They were choosing to attack her, to put themselves in danger.

And it was either them or Paloma. Her sister’s lifespan depended on Rhea staying alive.

She selected another target, pinpointed his or her location, aimed her long gun and fired.

Second Scene From Dark Flight

By Cynthia Sax on June 26, 2017

Dark Flight is releasing on July 11th (it is available for pre-order today). I’m sharing the first chapter.

Read the first scene here: http://tasteofcyn.com/2017/06/19/first-scene-from-dark-flight/

This is the second scene.

***

The merchant ship broke into the planet’s troposphere. The warship fired on them. Rhea swerved the vessel to the right. The missiles hit the side of a mountain.

Their merchant ship skimmed over a chunk of rock, scratching the metal underbelly of their vessel. The warship followed them.

Paloma continued to mutter about making peace and explanations, threatening to hail their Humanoid Alliance attackers. Rhea said nothing, her focus on their survival, on extracting themselves from their current precarious situation.

Sweat trickled down her spine underneath her gray flight suit. She lowered their ship, flying it close to the surface, hoping the size differential between their vessel and the warship would give them an advantage. The white sand underneath them parted, waves on an ocean of land.

More missiles arced toward them. She steered their ship, dodging one, two. The third one clipped the left side of their vessel, taking out one of their thrusters, jolting them.

Paloma screamed. Their ship’s wing dragged against the ground, sparks flying from the points of contact. Rhea pressed her lips together and compensated for the reduced power, leveling the vessel.

“We’re going to die.” Her sister gripped her chair’s armrests, her knuckles whitening.

“Not if I can help it.” Rhea would take care of Paloma, keep the only being in the universe she cared about safe, transporting them both to the Refuge.

“How can you be so calm?” Her highly emotional sister verged on the edge of hysterics. “They’re shooting at us.”

Rhea had spent all of her twenty-two solar cycles knowing that one wrong word could result in death, that the smallest physical reaction—an intake of breath, a trembling finger, a higher pitch in her voice—could give her parents’ activities away, dooming them all. She had learned long ago to conceal her emotions, hide her thoughts.

It irked her that her sister, the being who should know her the best, didn’t realize Rhea’s calm façade was exactly that—a façade.

The warship was gaining on them. The missiles were becoming more difficult to avoid. Rhea glanced at the viewscreen embedded in her console. The Refuge remained far away. “We won’t make it.” Her voice was flat.

Paloma whimpered. “Don’t say that.”

“There’s an escape pod.” There was only one. It was small, could hold a single being. “Get into it. Press Eject.”

“Noooo.” Her sister wailed. “I’m staying with you.”

“We’ll only be parted for mere moments.” Rhea hoped that was the truth. There was a possibility she wouldn’t survive. “There are containers of beverage, nourishment bars in the pod. Remain inside it. I’ll find you.”

“I didn’t mean what I said last planet rotation, about wanting my own life, about—”

“I know you didn’t.” They didn’t have time for that conversation. “Get in the escape pod, Paloma. Now.”

Her sister gulped, unfastened the straps around her body. “You’ll find me?”

“I promise.” Rhea didn’t have to say more. She had never broken a promise to her sister. Paloma knew that.

Her sister stood, took three steps toward the door. Then she paused, as though changing her mind.

That was typical Paloma, always fighting her on every decision. Rhea’s patience was at the breaking point. She opened her mouth to snap at her sister.

Paloma flung herself against her, hugging her tight. “I love you.”

“I love you too.” Rhea fought to get those few strangled words out, emotion swelling inside her.

Paloma squeezed her once more and hurried out the door without saying another word. That was how scared her normally talkative sister was.

Rhea would keep her safe. She flew the ship with grim determination, veering it to the left, to the right, between boulders larger than multi-level domiciles. Missiles exploded around them, flumes of fire spiraling upward, sand spraying like shrapnel against their vessel’s panels.

The bridge without her sister was quiet, eerie, lonely. Paloma wasn’t the easiest company. She was in that awkward stage between being a child and a fully grown female. But they were sisters and Rhea loved her with everything she had.

Without her sister, Rhea had nothing and no one.

The system indicated Paloma had entered the escape pod. Rhea lowered the landing gear, increasing the cloud of sand behind her ship, hoping that would conceal her sister’s exit.

The escape pod detached.

The warship behind her didn’t slow.

Rhea exhaled, relief washing over her. The Humanoid Alliance hadn’t detected the escape pod. Her sister should be safe.

Missiles arced from the ground, the assault from a direction she hadn’t expected. Shit. Rhea steered to the right. She was fighting multiple enemies. The locals were shooting at her also. The few inhabitants of this planet were hostile.

Most of the beings were Rebels. Their hatred was especially strong for the Humanoid Alliance and that was whom they focused on.

The locals pummeled the warship pursuing her vessel with missiles, hammering them from all sides. The warship shot at her ship, intent on downing it, on killing anyone on board.

Rhea jutted her jaw and did her best to avoid being hit. Sweat beaded on her forehead. Tension pulled tight across her shoulders. If she could outlast the warship—

A missile blasted the remaining thruster on the left side. Fuck. The ship spun. Its nose and tail ground against the rock around her. Fighting for control, she knew her efforts would be futile.

An explosion rocked her ship from the rear. That must have been the warship. It had been the only object behind her. But its destruction had come too late.

Her ship was going down.

Puffkers are mentioned in this story.
What are puffkers?

Well, they look very similar to this doggy.

Yes, basically, they’re puffballs with legs.
(grins)
They’re adorable and a certain giant green gatekeeper has a soft spot for them.

Here’s a snippet of a scene…

***

“She won’t be alone.” Balvan entered the chamber. “I’ll stay with your sister. She remembers me, won’t be scared to see me here. Especially as I’ll have this with me.”

He turned his wrists and opened his big fists. A white ball of fluff with dark eyes purred happily in one of his palms. One of its barely visible legs had gauze wrapped around it.

“Awww…” Rhea’s face softened. “Is that a puffker? They’re impossible to find on our home planet.” She made kissy noises at it. “Because you’re so cute and everyone wants you. Don’t they? Oh, yes, they do.”

The tiny creature had reduced Orol’s warrior female to goo.

“Her name is Sparkles.” Orol scooped his mate into his arms and stood, eager to put those lips of hers to better use.

Balvan scowled. “That’s not the creature’s name.”

Dark Flight

His mission. His challenge. His forever.

Orol, the Refuge’s second-in-command, has been given what he believes is a simple mission—escort two human females to the settlement. The winged warrior arrives at the meeting site to find one of the females missing and the other aiming a gun at his head. To rescue the first, he must capture the second. Once he has Rhea in his talons, however, he realizes he never wants to let her go.

Her enemy. Her captor. Her everything.

Rhea doesn’t trust anyone. She certainly doesn’t follow commands issued by a gorgeous flying male with glittering eyes, a beautiful face, and a seductive touch. Orol is dominant, edged with darkness, and determined to find her sister. Rhea will do anything to prevent that, even if it means playing sensual games of submission with her powerful enemy, seducing him into forgetting everything except her.

Dark Flight is a STAND-ALONE SciFi Romance set in a gritty, dark world.
