Sonar The Surge


Sonar the Surge
by B. Truly

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE:  New Adult Sci fi Romance

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Eclipsed by darkness, the Romelands must face the ultimate quest. If they are forced toward the umbra peak, they will be completely obscured.

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.

Excerpt:

Chapter 17
* * * Symone * * *


Twenty-two days later, we hovered down into Polaris’ atmosphere. Syira’s friend of great vision had told her our time to conquer was today. We were in no position to question Fate. I needed to believe in something. I chose to believe in my kind.

Various gray and white clouds cascaded around the ship as we flew through them. The dominant color of the terrain was white, with specs of red and brown. Green was few and far between. Snow covered the surface of Polaris year round, so it didn’t allow for much plant life. The weather was calm; it wasn’t even snowing. If only it could stay this way.

Hopefully, our space crafts wouldn’t be detected. We still had the codes to scramble their radar, but we couldn’t be certain they were still effective. We aimed to deliver our target’s bomb; the palace and the three main militia weapons facilities. The bombs would be launched into the ground directly above the sites. Our objective was to destroy the weapons buildings. And the palace where Zeus dwelled, bringing the battle to the surface. Even with harsh temperatures and the possibility of blizzards, we were not like our enemy. We wanted the least amount of collateral damage. If we fought below the surface where their homes lay, a lot of Polar civilians and children would be killed. Our teams were suited in thermal heated uniforms engineered by our specialists. We all prayed the black combat boots and thermal gloves would keep our body temperatures steady.

“How far are we from the target?” Nile asked, standing next to Marie.

Nile was the director of the entire Space Flight Program, and the commanding officer in charge of any flight mission. Our target was the Lira weapons base.

“Approximately three minutes, Sire,” Marie reported. Nile nodded. Marie was the captain of this ship. She had not been piloting long but had a natural gift. Nile recruited her a few months back, when she had been the first Kadanan to ever beat him in a space race. Because of her exceptional talent, she’d climbed the ranks fast. Marie’s co-pilot was Sax. Nile was there to assist Marie, if need be. I doubted she would need any.

Kumar was Bryan’s second in command, but he was granted permission to be a part of this team for the attack. I got it. Kumar wanted to be close to Marie, since this was her first mission.

You would never guess that this was her first operation. She was so cool and collected.

Juda, Nile’s second, was with Zephra on Syira’s team for this raid. Zephra was going to assist with mind enhancement, and Juda was by her side. This raid had an underlying aura of doom. No one said anything. But I sensed we all felt the uneasiness and wanted to be close to our loved ones during the mission.

“I need confirmation that all targets are ready to drop the payload,” Nile commanded. “Sound off when you’re ready,” Nile told Marie.

“Sonar Jericho 1.5 will reach destination in two minutes,” Marie said over the radio com.

All of Nile’s ships in his fleet bore his middle name with an identifying number. The other units came in over the com, ready to detonate. Thanks to Kadeem and Kat, we had the grids and landscape of the Polaris geography. The Lira base being underground, all you could see was miles of snow. But our bomb should be strong enough to destroy the facility. The initial countdown began. Marie deployed the payload over our mark. A deafening boom hammered through the wind.
