Sonar the Surge
by B. Truly
GENRE: New Adult Sci fi Romance
Symone struggles with her most challenging battles … the conflict within herself. Losing loved ones steals part of her soul. Despair has created a gaping hole where her heart should be. Symone doesn’t even recognize herself. She has to determine if this is the person she’s turned into, or if it is who she has always been.
Nile is an attractive aristocrat whose charm and arrogance drives Symone insane. Beyond Symone’s control, Nile is spun into her life. But she’s not sure if she can have a relationship with him or where that could lead her. Embracing love could make her whole again, but it may also destroy her. Symone must travel through the opaque light in order to find where her destiny lies.
Symone’s family, Shiray and Syira, continue to fight in the feuds of their galaxy. Together they have to find the balance between compassion and sacrifice. Kadanans are being held captive, and they hold the fate of their world in their hands. They have only begun to understand the consequences of the devastating realities of war.
The enemy of my enemy is my friend, is the philosophy the Romelands now abide by. With chaos and turmoil at every corner, they may forget what is worth fighting for. The surge for power has erupted. Only the strongest race will be left standing.
“Your Highness, I’m picking up Polar ships on my radar,” John said, glancing at his telecom device. “We need to get our people to safety aboard our vessels before we can help the others.”
The group of Kadanans we’d helped escape stood behind us, waiting anxiously for the next set of directions. Bryan’s emerald eyes were wild.
“We don’t have long before their fleet attacks,” John tried again.
“Get them to the ships, John,” Bryan said. “Nile and I will work on this barricade.”
John seemed torn. His forehead wrinkled. “You have a duty to your people and I have a duty to protect you if need be.”
“John, Shiray is behind these rocks. There is no way in hell I’m leaving her!”
I could hear the Polar vessels coming in the distance. My stomach hit the floor. We still needed to get to the top surface where our ships were. John stepped closer to Bryan, but Bryan refused to look at him. “Don’t you dare try that power of command shit on me John,” Bryan told him.
“Paul, blind him,” John told his comrade from his team. Paul’s power was that he could take away your senses; sight and smell. He didn’t need eye contact for it to work. Paul moved forward using his power.
“John, what are you doing?” Nile asked.
“I’m doing what I’ve been sworn to do. I’m protecting the heir to the throne,” John said.
“Paul, give me back my sight! I command you as heir to the throne,” Bryan snarled.
“That order is overruled in the case that you’re putting your life and others you are held accountable for in danger,” John acknowledged.
“John … stop this!” Bryan shouted.
“Hold your ground, Paul. You know the legislative oath we took,” John stated.
“John, please. We know the parliament better than anyone, but his wife is in there,” Nile pleaded.
“Could you live with yourself if something happened to your brother or one of these Kadanans counting on us?” John gestured to the group. “I promise you. We will come back for Shiray and the rest as soon as we get our people out of danger’s path.”
Nile glanced at me with his brow furrowed. “I know Kadeem will rescue them,” was my reply, but I could only pray that was true. How could you choose a loved one’s life over many? That was no choice. But we couldn’t help Shi and the others if we were dead.
“We’ll come back for her, Bryan,” Conan reassured him.
John and Paul tried to grab the blinded Bryan. He started going wild, kicking and punching against them. He couldn’t do much not being able to see.
Nile tensed his body, about to pounce. “Release your hold, Paul,” Nile threatened.
The only thing that stopped this from getting ugly was Juda’s alert. “We have to hurry! I can see the fleet on the horizon.”
Bryan continued to struggle. Nile sighed. We had to flee.
John said, “Please forgive me, Prince Bryan.” John slugged him across his chin twice. Now out cold, Bryan’s head hung limp as John and Paul carried him. Each with one of Bryan’s arms around their neck.
