Time for another Weekend Writing Warriors snippet. Every Sunday, I join a bunch of writers through a blog hop and post an 8-10 sentence snippet of my current project. You can click on the link to see what everyone else is up to.
The past few snippets have involved helping Princess Karachi escape her own castle which has been corrupted and taken over by the Yildirims. Ladala’s soldiers were able to rescue her, but before they take her to Ladala’s location, they ask her to help them with another mission that could put the war back in their favor.
Karachi took a few timid steps toward the young woman staring out an open window. The stiff, biting wind blew into the woman’s face but she didn’t even blink against the cold breeze. The princess looked into her face and realized it was Ilsi.
“What happened to her?” Karachi whispered, horrified.
“She couldn’t run from Althod forever,” was all Basim said.
“I can’t believe I wasn’t made aware of this until now,” Karachi murmured. “Whatever happened to her must’ve happened in my own halls—this is madness.”
“Princess,” Deidre interceded softly, “If you work with Ladala, things will change.”
“Once I return with you to Ladala, I must be informed of all that has and will happen,” Karachi replied sternly, standing between them and the girl, “that, you must make certain.”
“Of course,” Liselotte replied tersely.

Poor Ilsi, what in the world happened to her?? Compelling excerpt here 🙂
There’s a dropped S from “princess” – one of those tricky typos that spell check won’t catch. I do that a lot, *sigh*. Happy Holidays!
Wow, that’s 2 for 2. Thanks for pointing this out. Currently fixing the typo!
Poor Ilse! I have a feeling there’s a lot going on that Princess Karachi isn’t aware of. She seems quite naive. Interesting snippet.
Yes, and she’s quite resolved to remedy the situation!
This is a novel I look forward to reading. Love the snippet and can’t wait for more!
This comment absolutely made my day. Thanks for reading!
Poor Ilsi. I wonder if she’s able to think.
Great snippet, really bringing the gravity of the situation to light. 🙂
These little insights into this story are so intriguing! Looking forward to reading the finished product! 🙂
Thanks for your comment! Sometimes when you’re in the thick of revising, you hope people will still read it. This made my day. 🙂
