Revolutions...broken loyalties, betrayal and death.
The Guardians...only they hold the knowledge to take back what has been lost, but they’ve been hunted until only one remains standing.
The Daamen trader...can he capture and keep the heart of the woman who is such a mystery?
Or will the Soul of a Guardian be consumed in the final destruction?
The ship shuddered under another blow and then sirens started going off. The ship pitched and started to die down.
“Oh no,” Tasi muttered. “We’re not going to be sitting ducks now!” Frantically keying in commands, she shouted, “Balfour! Strap in and hold on! I’m taking us down!”
There was no answer and all she could do was pray Balfour was okay.
And that they’d make it out of this alive.
Snapping the safety harness on, Tasi blocked three of the main electrical lines. It was a dangerous manoeuvre, but the only one left to do. The space ship simply plunged through space on one engine.
Keeping only one main electrical line open to steer with, Tasi guided the spaceship downwards. Heart pounding, she saw the planet below looming closer and closer.
The black hunters’ ship swooped after them, the lasers flaring, searing the hull of the old spaceship. In the space shield she saw the flames flaring bright, licking at the shield. The space shield cracked but held.
“They’re following,” Balfour said.
“We need to hit the ground and then bail,” Tasi replied. “I just hope we can bail, because if I’m wrong...”
“You can do it,” Balfour said. “We’ve practiced this.”
“I know. It’s just that was in our own ships, not this piece of junk.”
“Oh ye of little faith.”
The planet loomed up, forests and oceans and mountains. She kicked in the three main electrical lines and the backup engine roared fully to life, the ship shuddering as it was suddenly forced from the plunge into a straight flight.
The ship hit the tops of trees, parts of the undercarriage torn away as it glanced off the top of a hill. The ship tilted, crashed sideways into another hill and then slid down the remainder to come to a stop at the bottom in a cloud of dust and smoke.
Ears ringing with the alarm blaring, Tasi released the safety harness and bolted from the control cabin. Smoke filled the corridor but she could see Balfour coming through the stairwell door.
“Run!” he ordered.
The alarm was deafening, and she caught a glimpse of fire flaring from a torn panel in the side of the corridor as she passed it. An explosion at the back of the ship rocked them almost off their feet.
Balfour grabbed her arm and dragged her through the blinding smoke. Another explosion shook the floor under their feet as they threw themselves out of the doorway to the ground below.
They hit the ground running and made for the trees. No sooner had they hit the tree line than a deafening roar sounded from behind them and the blast from the exploding spaceship threw them several feet into the depths of the forest.
Slowly the sound of the explosion faded and Tasi sat upright. Looking back over her shoulder, she saw the fire billowing up, the flames consuming the twisted metal that had been their only mode of transport.
“Guess we’ll be buying a new ship after all,” Balfour said from beside her.
Pushing upright, she stood on slightly unsteady legs and looked at his soot covered face. “You think so?”
A black shape swooped low over the tree tops and circled. The hunters’ ship had caught up with them.
“I think we better run.” Balfour gave her a shove. “Let’s go.”
The forest was thick, the branches flicking against their faces as it got denser. Tasi thought for sure they’d gotten away when suddenly she heard something. Motioning to Balfour, she dropped down behind a thick trunk, trying to steady her breathing as she peered around it. Balfour knelt behind her, his panting breath hot on her neck as he peered over her shoulder.
There was a faint noise but she couldn’t place it. But the hunters were coming closer.
“We have to find cover.” Turning back, she got a look at Balfour.
His face was white, his eyes a burning black. He was shaking but he didn’t look weak.
“Balfour.” She grabbed him.
“We have to separate.”
“What?” She stared at him.
