(A Shadow Quest Short)
This short story was originally features in the anthology THE MAMMOTH BOOK OF FUTURISTIC ROMANCE. It gives a glimpse into the world of Kiersten Fay’s Shadow Quest series; a steamy series of full length novels available now.
After the short story, I have provided an extended excerpt from the first book in my Shadow Quest series.
Priya stepped onto the solid metal platform of the dismal spaceport. Musty, recycled air flooded her lungs, along with the scent of rust and sweat. Gripping her luggage handle in one fist, she thanked the transport ship’s steward before striding forward in search of her next destination.
As she wound through a crowd of roughnecks, she noticed a pattern of stains on the dark-green bulkhead to her left, probably from a recent brawl. A good one by the looks of it.
