I'd love to share a snippet from my upcoming sci-fi release (which is a 2 book each continuity with Denise Rossetti and Shona Husk). You can pre-purchase your copy on Amazon but don't forget to buy all three books, which are coming out the same day, August 28th, and followed by our next three books in the series in early November.
Here's my snippet:
An alarm sounded as a section of the barrier thudded to the floor. She turned to watch, almost numbly, as a prisoner king-hit a soldier, knocking him out cold. Another soldier’s whip snaked out, unleashing high-voltage currents onto the prisoner, cutting him off mid-scream, his throat convulsing and blood gushing from his nostrils. His body jerked spasmodically before he, too, fell to the floor.
Then a hand encircled her forearm, steering her away from the carnage. “You need to leave,” Tristan whispered urgently.
Rita choked back hysterical laughter. How perverse that a prisoner—and one in whites—turned out to be a better guardian than the lieutenant. She managed a nod, mouth drying when she said, “We’d best get you out of here too, before they lock-down the magna-cuffs.”
Any one of the guards could activate the cuffs. Prisoners within a ten-foot radius would then be magnetically pinned to the floor or walls. The ‘all whites’ prisoners—those deemed murderers or mentally unstable—suffered a far worse fate, the lock-down setting off intermittent electric bolts that coursed through their body, incapacitating them in the worst way possible.
