Science Fiction Fantasy Saturday - Horse Charmer 2

Welcome to my Science Fiction Fantasy Saturday snippet. You can read other #sffsat snippts here. And we continue on with my current WIP; the sequel to Horse Charmer. Title hasn't been decided yet for Horse Charmer 2. For those of you who read Horse Charmer, Cassia is now the official queen of Karah and is stuck with all the duties and problems that come with the job. Including, the continued threat of Vespera and lots of people telling her what to do.

Cassia plans on using Kali's truth-detecting abilities to find out if one of Torr's companions is an assassin sent to kill her.  

***
Kali shifted under her, letting her know that riders approached. Torr and his companions were being escorted by a Karahan cavalry guard to their location. Torr rode slightly in front of his men. She stared at both Alan and Hanley. Either of them could have been sent to kill her she supposed. It was odd to think of someone being sent to kill her.

A silly theory, Kali snorted.

Cassia held back the smile. You don’t believe Donaly?

It isn’t a matter of believing, but of likelihood.

  1. Yep, I agree. If someone were sent to kill me, I'd be a non-believer as well. Nice little snippet.

  3. Talking with, not just to. My animals aren't able to use words, but they can communicate. And animals can be good judges of people.

  4. Sounds like her horse has important insights.

  5. My cat talks to me all the time, but it's usually along the lines of "feed me!" or "clean my box." I like Kali's insights better.

  6. My horse isn't much of a talker, but he is a heavy gambler! I tell him and tell him that it will all end in tears but he won't listen! I want a swap with Kali!!

  8. I'm in agreement with Misa. Kali is really level-headed. I may have panicked.

  9. Make sure you TELL me when this books releases. I want to read it. Book 1 was so good and fun, I can't wait to see what you do with the second. Hurry up all ready!

    1. Ah, Court. Thank you so much. You're sweet. I know I am way behind on my production schedule especially for Horse Charmer 2. I was hoping to have it done by now, but it's only about 1/4 done.
