This is an excerpt from my new book, “Hathor Legacy: Outcast” which is the first in a series.
This snippet is a continuation of last week’s scene. Jonathan and Nadira are caught between the person who robbed the mine and the security forces who are trying to force their way into the house. Nadira is using her telekinetic power to fight, but if she uses too much of it, her power will be drained.
“AAAAGG!” Jonathan released her and fell back on the floor, his body trembling.
In that instant, Ilana ran past her and out of the room.
“I know.” Nadira’s struggled to catch her breath. “Jon, we can’t let Ilana go.”
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.
