Snipet from The Myth Manifestation

Uncategorized Add comments


The Myth Manifestation (SPI Files 5) is due to go to my editor two weeks from today. We’re looking at a January publication date. Sorry for the delay, but life got in the way of this one. As soon as I know the exact release date, I’ll post it everywhere.

Meanwhile, here’s a snippet for you. I just wrote it, so it’s piping hot from my writer brain.

Kenji and I climbed up and out of the elevator. Standing on top of the elevator car had put the open door waist high on Kenji, chest high on me.

The Dunmor’s maitre d’ made no move to assist us.

Yeah, it was rude. But I couldn’t really blame him.

Our arms and hands were covered in elevator cable grease, and the rest of us was sporting a thin coat of giant snake spit — or whatever it was those things put out to let them wiggle through tight spaces. I told myself it was just spit, and I’d keep telling myself that until I believed it.

While the maitre d’ didn’t help us out of the elevator shaft/snake pit, he was only too happy to call his boss for me. I was sure he’d had plenty of practice finding Rake in his own hotel.

Kenji and I took the opportunity to do what we’d come here to do.

Find that fake goblin.

The key to not being questioned anywhere you went was looking like to belonged there. In our present state, it was obvious that Kenji and I did not belong in a restaurant that had been awarded three Michelin stars last year. We fell back to the second key to not being questioned — look like you had every right to be there. We were wearing SPI’s SWAT-lite uniforms, we were armed, and the conference hotel had been sealed in a pocket dimension. We had ourselves a bonafide emergency. Yes, one of my guns was a paint pistol, and Kenji’s weapon was a badge scanner that looked like a Star Trek phaser, but it was all about attitude. And after nearly being enveloped in a nest of giant snakes, I had attitude aplenty.

    Love love love! Are we going to ever met any of Mac’s family? Would love to have Raine and Mac team up. That would be a fun read.

    Thank you, Andrea!

    Yes, we will meet Mac’s family in a future book; and yes, there will be more crossover between my Raine Benares series and SPI Files. But I can’t name any names. ; )
