 Futuristic Alien City - Computer Artwork

Here’s a list of things I expected to see outside the door: a city from the future, full of squid-like beings; An alien hillside, grass growing red from soil that had never been stepped on by human kind; Maybe an apocalyptic wasteland, who knows?

What I didn’t expect was somebody’s living room.

It looked like any old living room, with warm orange sofas and odd brown wallpaper. It was lit, however, by fluorescent lights, basking the space in an air of office dullness. The smell of old shoes turned my nose.

What I expected to see even less of were five bald men—if they even were men—in black suits, waiting in a row, glaring at us. Not tailored suits, but tight body suits like what a diver would wear. The men bore almost identical expressions of pure concentration.

Oh, and they were pointing guns at us.

I should have mentioned that first.

“Oh, sorry.” I said it like I had waltzed into the wrong room in a house, and not just jumped across the galaxy to land in their living room. Not quite sure where that reflex came from, but it was a terrible idea.

They responded with gunfire.

The sound was like being inside a continuous clap of thunder. The blasts, loud and all at once, made my ears burst with pain. I was ripped backward, my feet coming out from under me as something red hot whizzed by my ear.

Great, first futuristic thing I lay eyes on, and it’s a laser bullet-thing trying to kill me.

Zander shielded me as Blayde slammed the door shut with a flash of her hand against the wall. All that was left was the stone wall—at least, I think it was stone.

The wall of fire continued for a few seconds—bam bam bam bam bam—then slowly subsided. I doubted it was because they were out of ammo.

“There’s no escape!” said a voice, booming through our small garage. It was a strange accent, but clear and in audible English.

I balked: none of it was English, it couldn’t be. Whatever translator Zander had given me, back when he and I were saving Earth from the not-so-passive-after-all Killians, still worked. And it was really pulling its weight.

“Come out with your hands or other appendages high in the air or away from any garment of clothing, if you are a garment-wearing being!”

“You okay?” Zander glanced me over from top to bottom. I brushed him off, breathing heavily. No, panting. I had gone from calm to panic in a half-second flat, but that was the least of my worries.

I hadn’t been hit, thank goodness, but Blayde had collapsed to the floor, not the best way to start our trip to an alien world.

“Is she…” I asked, but I already knew the answer. The bloody hole smack dab in the middle of her forehead confirmed my fears.

“Dead, yeah.” Zander prodded her limp shoulder with his index finger. “Don’t worry, she won’t be for long. They used condensed plasma instead of metal bullets, so it’s a quick fix.”

“Yeah, okay, not worrying.” I wanted to throw up again, but the contents of my stomach were already sitting on the other side of the car.

“You are surrounded. Surrender now, and your death will be quick!”

“Zander, what the hell is going on?”

“I have to be totally honest here.” He leaned against the space that had once been a door, placing his ear against the fake stone. “I have only the slightest of ideas.”

Book Review: Siren Song by Markie Madden

I’ve read all the books in the series too, and enjoyed them. I’ve not read this one yet, so it will be interesting when I do because I’m a big dog lover and enjoy anything with dogs in it. I’ll have to move it back up my reading list, I think!
And the best bit is that the character Kazz was named after me, so I have a big soft spot for her!


Siren Song (The Undead Unit Book #4) by Markie Madden

Siren Song by Markie Madden coverI’ve read all the previous books in The Undead Unit series. The relationships of the main characters is amazing.  A team that is exceptionally close as you would expect of law enforcement partners.  I love Kazz, the shifter, with her unquenchable appetite. She is quite an entertaining character. I’ve enjoyed the entire series though I did not feel this one was quite up to the quality of the previous books in the series. Don’t get me wrong, the plot was still good and her characters remained consistent with their development in the series.

I felt that there was an inordinate amount of dialogue used to promote the SPCA, assuming it will still be in existence in a hundred plus years. Too much about the character’s pets was included that I felt did not add to the story. There was also…

“I’ve spent the last ten years trying to avoid touching people. And you’re telling me you purposefully want me to make myself see horrific deaths of people?” I stare at Mitchell waiting for an answer. All I get is a tick in the side of his neck again and a very angry look on his face. “I don’t think so,” I tell him and start to make my way past him; I will find my way out of this damn place. That’s when I hear the safety catch of a gun. A barrel presses against my back. Things change quite quickly. We can have all the will in the world, but put a loaded gun against someone, well; sticking to doing the opposite is hard.

Death, torture, ghosts, visions, demons and more. What else could you want?
