Excerpt from the 2nd Novel in the trilogy,

"Moonlight Madness"

 

Prologue

 

Suriname Rainforest….

 

“It’s a jungle out there!”

 

 

       Slivers of moonlight filtering through the dense canopy of exotic foliage cast light on the human form streaked with bright paint as it crept toward the hammock nearest the smoldering fire.

       A slight “whoosh” sound broke the eerie stillness seconds before a small dart sank into the flesh between the victim’s brows.

      Startled eyes flashed open—long enough to witness the intruder remove his calling card from the pouch dangling from his neck – the carcass of a bright blue poison dart frog.

        Marc van Troon’s scream died in his throat before he could warn the others.

EXCERPT FROM THE 1ST NOVEL IN THE TRILOGY,
"Star Light, Star Bright"

 
"HURRY. PLEASE HURRY. THEY'RE SHOOTING AT ME!" CONNOR CRIED. "THEY'RE TRYING TO KILL ME!"

Franklin would wait until Connor was safe before he had his well-deserved nervous breakdown. Right now he needed to maintain all of his wits to save his woman.

He held onto the PCD (Personal Communication Device) as he and Mansour rushed out of the building. Hopefully, they would arrive at the abandoned building at the same time as the police. Otherwise, he couldn't be held responsible for his actions.

Mansour drove like a madman. Connor could be wounded, or worse yet, dead by now. Sensing the tension and fear in Franklin, he punched down on the accelerator another notch.

With the heels missing from her shoes, Connor ran as fast as she could. Her leg muscles ached and her chest burned. Just a few more feet and she would be safe.

She heard footsteps behind her. The ogres were gaining on her. She had to put some distance between her and her pursuers. Her very life depended on it.

Connor felt her energy waning. Total collapse was but a few seconds away. Out of breath and out of her mind with fear, she didn't think she would make it. They were getting closer. Tears welled in her eyes. She had lost the race against time. Just before everything faded to black, all of the events leading up to this moment flashed through her mind.
