From AKAELA (the Mayake Chronicles Book 1), Prologue:
“It's a stupid idea, Akaela,” Athel says, and even though he’s not yelling, his voice booms across the gorge.The above is my Sunday snippet submission for the Weekend writer Warriors (you can find the Snippet Sunday group on Facebook, too). Make sure you check out all Weekend writer Warriors participants, it's a fun way to find forthcoming books -- all genres welcome, there's something for everyone's tastes.
“You wait and see,” I reply.
You wait and see.
Today’s the day, I feel it. The wind is right, the air currents are perfect. They blow against the cliff side of the mesa, producing a lift upward at the ridge. I raise my eyes and spot our trained falcon, Kael, circling the sky, showing me the thermals, columns of hot air I need to ride in order to make my flight last longer.
Today’s the day I will rise so high I’ll see the other side of the mesa.
This is from my new YA project, you can read the beginning of the chapter up to this point here.
