At that moment, a very tall man with long brown hair, a neat beard and mustache, iridescent green eyes and a glowing green jewel in the middle of his forehead strode casually into the room. With one long finger, he pressed a button with a large X engraved in the center. The room stopped shaking as the engines powered down. The man had an amused look on his face as he extended his hand to Leah.
“Welcome to Castle Necros,” he greeted. “I am your host, the Marquis Ciaran Kabral.”
“Leah La Sirene, witch queen of New Orleans,” Leah returned in a subdued voice. “I do humbly apologize for nearly launching your tower into space. I am not quite sure how it happened.”

A week had passed since Tobias Walton caught Felice Navidad’s would-be rescuers planning to free the Frost Queen from the clutches of the bloodthirsty, megalomaniac head of Xquenda Industries. Negotiations were at a stalemate. Each day was more hopeless than the last, and Felice was certain that this would be the last day of her very long life if she was not able to replenish her energy. She found an unlikely ally in the unhappy Sonny Walton, who had tried but failed to release Felice from her cell several times. Tobias’ wizard lackeys would not be swayed.
“Queenie, guess what, we’re moving you to nicer quarters.”
Tobias descended the stairs with a guard. They opened the cell door and put magical shackles on Felice’s wrists and ankles and a metal collar around her neck to lead her by a chain.

    1. Indeed, and with Tobias in charge, it's not as if things are likely to improve for anyone else.

    1. If there were money to be won from it, I'd definitely bet that was the case!

  4. The book releases in three days and you have only a tentative title? You must have a high tolerance for uncertainty. I would've chewed my fingernails to the elbow if I faced that sort of pressure!

    1. Eh...I know the publisher.
      Hint: I am the publisher. So it isn't as if I'm going to get any more of a dressing down than me rolling my eyes at myself when I pull a Trent Lane and decide to change the title.
      The original title seemed like it would work better with a forthcoming book in the series rather than this one. :-)

  5. Great backstory. Great imagery Enjoyed the snippet.
    I have a hunch it's not useless information.
    I forgot to add my link. If you have a chance, I have my snippet up too. Karen's Shenanigans

    1. At this moment, it isn't going anywhere that Felice would like.

  8. I don't think any "nicer quarters" could really compare with being free, but... it's something. Kinda? Will it give her a chance to replenish her energy?

    1. As far as Tobias is concerned, he believes himself to be wonderfully generous. As far as anyone else's feelings are concerned, he really doesn't care!
