Arkship Vengeance - progress report
I'm almost finished with Arkship Vengeance. It's been a roller-coaster ride to write, and I hope you enjoy reading it once it's out on December 14th.Here's a tiny teaser:
Wynn sat on the gantry high above the Icarus’ shipyards. He came here when he needed to think. It was a forgotten space, only used for maintenance of the overhanging crane arms. He liked the potential danger of sitting here, of being exposed to the breeze of the circulated air moving around the vast hanger space, knowing that he could push himself off the edge if he wanted to, no protective harness, no royal guard, nothing and no one to stop him. It was liberating.
Below him was the Ark Royal Caerleon, the Kenric flagship, its repairs and upgrades finally completed. It had been ripped apart in its last battle with the arkship Fenrir and many had thought its space-faring days were over, but Wynn had insisted it be repaired. It was the last surviving Kenric arkship, a symbol of their endurance, a beacon of hope for a better future. Wynn had never dreamed it would have taken almost two years to complete. The truth was they had gotten used to life on the Icarus station, living under the hospitality of the Church, and the desire to return into the hostile isolation of space diminished with every passing day. They were safe here, they were protected. Wynn couldn’t help but feel uneasy. He yearned to take his people back to the dark stillness of space. After all, that was where they belonged.
