“Well, my boy, sometimes when you ask for the rest, you are lucky enough to get the best. However, the Enchanters of Lwiqsyz are a testy and judgmental lot, and I fear they would tear you limb from limb figuratively if not literally. Ah, you, Witch Queen, you are a powerful sorceress with regal bearing! Would you consider attending the wedding of Master Necromancer Uhlrix Goodfellow to Master Soulbinder Tackfellow Nekron with me?”

“I beg your pardon, your Infernal Worship, but the only thing I desire at this moment is a fainting couch!” Leah replied. “I fell through a wormhole and was very nearly shot into space!”

“I can go with you, Lord Lucifer,” Lleu insisted. “I clean up nicely, so I’m told.”

Notes:
This is a snippet from Castle Necros, the sixteenth installment in the Carnal Invasion series. It is due for release on Halloween 2019.

Lleu Redgrave, a vampire not particularly adept at summoning demons, has inadvertently summoned Lucifer while attempting to summon a minor demon to assist him and his companions after they fell through a wormhole at the end of Paraji's Prisoners. Lucifer is hoping to find a date to the wedding of a pair of odious sorcerers and no-one appears to be keen to take him up on his offer.

    1. At least that's all he says he wants. There's generally a hidden agenda with Lucifer.

    1. Lleu likes to have powerful demons on his side. It's easier than having them working against him!

  4. I'm guessing Lleu likes to take risks? Great excerpt!

    1. Lleu is the sort of fellow who tends to take risks without realizing that he's doing so.

  5. Doesn't sound like the kind of party one returns from unscathed! Very cleverly done.

    1. It wouldn't be. Which is either good or bad, depending on one's perspective. ;-)
