This is an excerpt from my new book, “Hathor Legacy: Outcast” which is the first in a series. In this snippet, lead characters Nadira and Jonathan have just been attacked by Ilana Travac, the woman who’s suspected of robbing the mine on a nearby moon and killing Jon’s father, the mine CEO.

Nadira opened her eyes. Above her, the cream-colored ceiling swam into view. Shifting herself, she braced her hands against a nearby table and lifted her head. Bad idea. She leaned her face against the cool, glass surface of the table, and hung on, waiting for the dizziness to pass. 
It was a violation for Guardians to use their powers against each other. The charge was serious enough to incur banishment–something that hadn’t happened in recent memory. Ilana couldn’t have the same abilities as a Guardian. There had to be another explanation.
“Are you all right?” With a groan, Jon dragged himself over and crouched beside her. “How the hell did she do that?”
Nadira eased herself into a sitting position, resting her back against the edge of the table. “She must’ve used some kind of weapon or had a chemical enhancement.” She’d have to wait until her head was clear before she could sort it all out. 
“She didn’t use a weapon,” he said, his grey eyes searching hers. “It came from her–the same way you blasted those attackers.”

About the book…

On the planet, Hathor, a powerful group called the Guardians serves as the security force for Novacorp, the corporation that runs Hathor with its ruthless monopoly. Nadira, as one of the most powerful Guardians, is expected to use her intuition and telekinetic powers to keep the capital city safe from thieves and intruders.
Jonathan Keel, son of a mine CEO on the nearby planet, Astarte, is wealthy, privileged and used to getting what he wants. When his father goes missing after a robbery and explosion at the mine, he defies the authorities and heads to Hathor to search for him and for the robbers.

Security is on high alert and Nadira is charged with protecting Jon. She rescues him from an vicious attack and discovers that the Guardians have another agenda that has nothing to do with solving the crime.

Jonathan finds evidence of his father’s possible involvement, while his attraction to Nadira forces her to confront all she has known about being a Guardian, especially the rule to put duty before her personal feelings.

Struggling with their growing desires, and chased by company security, Jon and Nadira flee the city. But solving the crime leads them to endure betrayals from the people closest to them, as secrets are revealed that not only link their pasts but also threaten to destroy Jon’s family and separate him from Nadira forever.

    Similar use of weaponry. Nadira discovers she's not the only one with this special power? Intriguing!

    Hathor is an interesting name for a planet. Makes me wonder if some of the characters have Egyptian roots? I'll have to read and find out. =D

    Hi Maria, Actually when I researched and found that Hathor is also the goddess associated with mining, it seemed perfect. Mining is the main business of the company that runs the planet. The more I read about her, the more I liked the idea of naming the planet after her. Thanks for stopping by!
