Reprisal Snippet #2

 

The Akio Revelations is the latest series within the original Kurtherian Gambit Universe! If you loved Akio in the original series, you won’t want to miss this one!

 

 

Kume Island Ryoshu Kingdom

1582

“Togu-san, the pirates have taken over Uegusuku Castle as we were told. Our scouts have seen only twelve pirates inside, but they’ve barred the gates from within and have lookouts around the wall,” Akio reported to his friend and commander.

“How do you suggest we take them?” Togu shot back as soon as he finished the report.

Akio’s reply was equally quick. “I suggest waiting until just before dawn and taking a small group to slip over the wall and open the gates from inside, after eliminating all the sentries. They will be less alert. We have watched them for a few days, and they always change the guards after first light. The men appear to be lax before they’re relieved, I believe we can eliminate them without rousing the others. Then it is merely a matter of cleaning out the vermin.”

Togu’s lips turned up in a hint of a smile, proud of how confident and competent his student had come as a military leader since he had started his training. “Hai, that is a good plan. Select the men to accompany you and make it so.”

Akio bowed to his Sensei and turned as soon as he dismissed him to assemble the team.

“We go over the wall here,” he pointed to a crude drawing in the sand as the nine warriors he had selected looked on with interest. read more…

A First Look at Reprisal, Kurtherian Gambit’s Latest Series!

Reprisal Banner

 

Snippet #1 for Reprisal

YES!!! Finally, we get to see Akio in his own series! Check out this first snippet of the brand new series, Akio Revelations, on pre-sale now!

 

Kume Island off the coast of Okinawa, Japan

 

Just my luck. That idiot Issa forgot to tie the anchor, so I’m stuck minding the boat while he goes ashore. He should have gone over the side with the damn thing, Taka Ogata thought sourly as he held the twenty-meter fishing boat steady in the current fifty meters from shore.

The earthquakes that struck Japan after the day now called the World’s Worst Day Ever, or WWDE, had destroyed the docks on Kume Island and there had been no attempt yet to rebuild. The only way to get there was to take a small craft that could handle the shallow water near the beach.

Ogata watched through binoculars as the ship’s dinghy approached the shore. A man waited with a group of what appeared to be teenagers. When the crewmen stepped onto the sand, the teens surged toward them in a wave. Ogata watched helplessly as they quickly swarmed his crewmates, whose panicked screams echoed across the water as they went down under the onslaught. He stared in horror as the group tore each man to shreds. When an adolescent girl came into focus, Ogata’s blood ran cold as he saw her glowing red eyes.

He shoved the throttle wide open and sharply spun the wheel, racing for safety as the powerful engines carried him away from the island and the demons who lived there.

***

She watched her opponent warily as he approached, sword held ready and a look of determination on her face. He moved with fluid grace, his feet seeming to glide across the floor as he nonchalantly stalked her. A slight smile played on his lips as he held his blade in a deceptively casual grip.

She struck with the speed of a snake when he came into range. He never slowed as his sword appeared, like magic, to push hers aside. She twisted and quickly leaned back as he reversed his motion in a counterblow, his sword-tip creating a breeze that ruffled her hair in passing.

She circled left, feinted with a strike at his leg, then immediately swept the blade up to slice his sword arm as she pressed the attack. Again, his weapon was there before she connected. He casually pushed her blade down, and she barely avoided his backstroke before it took her in the throat. She kept moving, her eyes never leaving his body as she watched for the slightest hint that would signal another attack.

They continued their deadly dance, both silent except for the clash of steel-on-steel that echoed through the room in a rhythm of strike and counterstrike. Neither gave an inch as they dueled. She defended more than attacked and grew increasingly frustrated each time he effortlessly blocked her. After each failed attempt she changed her form, hoping to catch him off guard with the quick changes. When all her attacks proved unsuccessful, frustration turned to anger. The angrier she became, the faster she moved until their figures were colored blurs as they moved about quicker than the human eye could follow. They came together in a flurry of ringing blows and slid apart before the sound of the first strike died away.

The dance continued for several minutes until her body slammed forcibly into the wall. The impact momentarily disoriented her. The other blur flashed across the room and stopped, revealing a sword that rested lightly against her exposed throat.

“Akio, could you have hit me any harder?” she huffed.

“If you think more pain would help you remember not to let your emotions interfere with your fighting, I will be happy to provide it.” He fought to keep a slight smile from forming as he spoke.

“You must learn to control your anger. The angrier you are, the more you telegraph your intentions. You were so focused on attacking and ending the fight that you failed to see the ruse that allowed me to take you, again,” he calmly explained as he pulled the blade back.

She stepped away from the wall with a groan. A slight indentation marked where her body had impacted.

Hai, Akio. I saw you commit to dodge the feint and thought you had taken the bait. I should know by now that you do not fall for such things,” she replied disgustedly.

“Your form and instincts are good, Yuko. You simply allow yourself to see what you want, instead of what is. You can’t let your frustration and anger blind you. Against a less-skilled adversary, you would have been successful. Unfortunately, one seldom has the luxury to pick their foes based on known skills. Shall we continue?”

Yuko was about to reply when Eve’s voice came through their implants.

“Akio, Yuko, please come to the operations center? I have received a message from the Japanese government liaison. I think you both need to see this.”

They placed their practice swords on the rack and walked down the hall into the operations center. Eve stood in front of a large monitor on the wall with an e-mail message displayed.

“There have been some strange occurrences on an island located off the coast of Okinawa. The information indicates that there may be Forsaken operating there. They sent two police inspectors to check on a report of missing people. The Inspectors called in after they arrived, but the transmission halted. There is an audio file attached.” As she finished, the speakers in the room came to life.

A panicked voice babbled, “Hiroso is dead! A monster, a monster with, with red eyes came from nowhere and tore his throat out. I shot—NO! NO! STAY BACK!” Rapid-fire gunshots, followed by a blood-chilling scream that abruptly ended in a gurgle, signaled the last of the frantic recording.

“The Okinawa police plan to send a larger group to investigate. Our contact in the ministry requested your input based on this discovery.”

Akio grimaced and glanced at Yuko. “Please contact the liaison and ask them to have the police wait. I do not believe they should risk more lives if this is what it sounds like.”

“Yes, I believe you are right,” she agreed as she reached for the phone.

“Eve, what island is this?” Akio inquired. “See if you can locate more information. Also, what was that about missing people?”

Eve was silent for a few seconds, and then additional documents appeared on the screen. “Its Kume Island, off the coast of Okinawa. They were investigating a report that a fisherman went there when he couldn’t contact a family member for several weeks. His boat was found adrift days later. No one has heard from him since. I’ve discovered other instances of boats found in that area. The reports date back for several months. There are rumors that pirates are operating there, but this is the first official report I have found where the authorities are involved.”

“Yuko, please let me know if your source has any additional information. I will need a Pod,” Akio called as he stepped out of the room.

The Final Too Young to Die Snippet!

Too Young To Die Banner

 

Are you ready for the future? Then read the final snippet of Too Young To Die NOW!

 

“It’s a Valkyrie,” Tina said.

“Huh?” Justin looked at her in confusion.

“My tattoo?” She looked at her arm, where something peeked out from under her t-shirt. “I thought you were looking at my arm.”

In point of fact, he had stared into the middle of nowhere and wished he was literally anywhere else.

He hadn’t wanted to come on this date. His past experiences with dating hadn’t exactly inspired confidence, and there was something hopelessly awkward to him about striking up a conversation with someone he didn’t even know as if there were a simple, easy way to get from Point A to Point B.

Point B, of course, being marriage, babies, and a house with beige carpets.

Unfortunately, after several weeks of browbeating from his mother and dark comments from his father about how someone who couldn’t even afford his own apartment shouldn’t ignore simple requests from his parents, Justin was there and he did have to find something to say.

The amusing part of this was that however his parents had pictured Tina Castro, he was fairly sure it wasn’t anywhere close to reality. There was no way they would have gone from almost constantly getting on his case about his job, his prospects, and graduate school to setting him up with a woman who had worn ripped jeans and a sweatshirt out on a first date. They would expect…

Pearls, probably. And a nice sweater. read more…
