Sign the form
Time for more Weekend Writing Warriors snippets. We post 8-10 sentences from one of our works every weekend.
Here’s another snippet from the upcoming novel: Fire & Blood, a Contemporary Sci-Fi Thriller. In this scene, Han, who has been told he’ll have to take a desk job if he wants to stay in, has just been informed there’s another possibility. He just needs to sign an NDA first.
“Do you want to know more? Or are you ready to sign your exit papers?”
There was no way he was voluntarily leaving if there was a chance for the kind of job he craved. “I want to know more.”
“Then sign the form.”
Han quickly scanned the document. It stated that everything he learned from General Albert Henning was to be kept in the strictest of confidence. He could never divulge anything he would hear as it would endanger their defenses. After reading it, he signed. There was no harm in hearing about the opportunity and if it would keep him on active duty, he was in.
They lost everything fighting for their country. Now they must fight to stay alive.
When disabled Navy SEAL Han Whitefeather loses the job he’s worked for his entire life, he grasps at the only opportunity left to him—a top secret military organization—to stay in active duty. From the moment he arrives at MYTHOS base, things are not what he expects. There are no ranks. He’s known only by his codename, Roarke. It’s not the military he knows.
From day one, they are pushed into training that has nothing to do with modern-day warfare. Stuck inside the Greenland Ice Shelf, they’re given injections to help them fight off the cold and the pain. Fights and all-out war break out between the cadets. Attempts are made on Roarke’s life and the one responsible is not brought up on charges. To make matters worse, cadets are dying in droves.
When they are divided into four separate squads, Roarke hopes things will get better, only to find himself face-to-face with his most deadly enemy.
With his life on the line, Roarke refuses to give up. He has to believe that everything they’ve gone through will be worth it. Even when he finds out that the injections they receive don’t just protect them from the cold. They do something far worse.
