More treasure hunts.
First there was AT STAR’S END and the treasure hunt to find the last remaining fragment of the Mona Lisa. Now travel to the heart of the Devil’s Nebula on the hunt for the gun used to assassinate Abraham Lincoln.
Welcome to my contribution to this week’s SFR Brigade Presents. Below is an exclusive excerpt from IN THE DEVIL’S NEBULA – Book 2 of the Phoenix Adventures.
Plan B was a secondary exit to the tunnels. “We need to get to the arboretum.” Ria pointed. “That way.”
They ran together. Ria liked that Zayn kept up easily.
They sprinted into another room and both of them stopped, looking up in awe. A glass roof showed the incredible night sky and asteroids flying past. Inside was filled with various forms of plant life. “The exit should be at the back of the room in the floor.”
They hustled and Zayn lifted away a giant vine. A small octagonal cover was set in the floor. It took both of them to shift it.
Zayn dropped in first. As she followed, she heard him curse.
She soon realized why. The tunnel was smaller than the previous one and after a few meters, the angle changed to near vertical. Ria slid downward. Her enviro suit was nearly frictionless and she felt herself gather speed.
“Zayn?” Her voice echoed in the tight confines of the tunnel.
“I’m here.” His voice came from below. “Hold on.”
She felt an increase in heat. Then she heard Zayn yell and a second later she shot out the end of the tunnel. She caught of glimpse of him flying through the air ahead of her, arms pin-wheeling. Below them was a small lake of sewage.
The air caught in her lungs like a cat with claws. The lake wasn’t the biggest problem. The problem was where the lake was flowing.
To a giant ultraviolet treatment system.
That incinerated everything that passed through it.
Zayn and Ria landed with a thick splash.
He lost it all.
His career, his woman, his sanity.
Two years ago, on a deadly mission to the lawless Devil’s Nebula, Commander Zayn Phoenix’s life imploded. Now the former Strike Wing pilot fills his days with dangerous adventures alongside his treasure hunter brothers.
But his nights are another story: haunted by nightmares of one unforgivable act.
Until an assassin lures him into a hunt. A hunt for her freedom from the Assassin’s Guild. A hunt for a derringer used in an ancient and infamous assassination—of old Earth president, Abraham Lincoln.
Zayn is compelled to join the perilous adventure with Ria Dante that will take them straight into the heart of the Devil’s Nebula, but not for money, fame or treasure.
He joins because Ria has the face of the woman he left for dead in the Nebula years before.
