The Judiciary won’t let her go easily, however. Ari is their experiment and the key to all their plans. In the brewing war against the mermaids, the Judiciary will stop at nothing to turn her into their weapon.

About the Author

Skye Malone is a fantasy and paranormal romance author, which means she spends most of her time not-quite-convinced that the magical things she imagines couldn't actually exist.

A Midwesterner who migrated to the Pacific Northwest, she dreams of traveling the world — though in the meantime she'll take any story that whisks her off to a place where the fantastic lives inside the everyday. She loves strong and passionate characters, complex villains, and satisfying endings that stay with you long after the book is closed. An inveterate writer, she can't go a day without getting her hands on a keyboard, and can usually be found typing away while she listens to all the adventures unfolding in her head.

Exclusive Excerpt!
Prologue: 10 years ago
- Jack -

“Wake up, Jack. We’re moving out. Your assignment is done.”

My commanding officer barks his orders out, jolting me awake. I open my eyes and try to focus as the dawn barely lights the room around me.

“What do you mean, done? Last night we were waiting on the search warrants. We had the whole family. It was going down... today.” Propping myself up on my elbows, I shake my head, trying to will myself to catch up.

Going over the last few days in my head, this doesn’t make sense. I’ve been on the ground with my unit for months now working special ops undercover with local law enforcement on a federal level, collecting whatever evidence we could and rounding up witnesses. Everything finally began to snowball together three days ago.

First one witness came forward, then a second, then the third came in with solid proof. With Port Thomas being a smaller city nestled near the coast in Oregon, law enforcement is always underfunded so they were thankful for the additional manpower, as long as we didn’t step on too many toes.

We had our mission in place for today, but this wasn’t how it was supposed to go.

“It blew up. Shit went down a few hours ago. Apparently, they knew we were coming. The Sparr family is gone. All of the evidence against them is now speculative. Four witnesses are dead. Another two are missing.” Then, as he opens his mouth, I see the hesitation in his eyes as his body physically braces for a fight.

“Jack.” My commander starts then stops, carefully considering his words with a frustrating pause. “It’s Jessa. Both her and her brother’s bodies are missing.”

“What do you mean, missing?” Then the weight of his words hits me. “Wait. What do you mean, bodies?” I bolt out of bed onto shaky legs as I feel my world begin to crumble piece by piece.

He chose his words carefully. She isn’t missing.

Her body is missing.

“Her family was in a car accident just outside of town at the bridge. It looks like they went over the cliff. Her parents’ bodies were recovered from the ravine along with the car. We don’t know yet if it’s related but three other people from the company are dead as well. It was a quick job.” He glances around my area as I feel panic begin to flow through my veins.

“Maybe Jessa and Travis weren’t in the car. Did you check their house?” I counter in a desperate attempt to think of something they haven’t yet.

Thoughts quickly come to me. I just saw both Jessa and Travis yesterday. We were all talking about how fast our high school grad is coming up in a few months. For siblings, they are almost inseparable. Twins who look nothing alike but finished each others sentences at every turn.

When I started this undercover op, six months ago, I never expected to meet someone like Jessa. I was just a kid myself at 23 and I was five years older than her and her brother. But I fit into their senior year in high school. No one knew my secret.

Everything about Jessa just fit for me.

And now they are both missing.

“We’ve been to the house and the hospital. We retrieved the car an hour ago. The back side window was broken out from the inside. We found her school bag in the back seat. And before you ask, we already have over half the team in on the search. We’ve been working with the local guys and they have all of her information. We’re checking the river banks as well as the water. Anyone making it out will be found, unless…” His voice trails off in realization that he said too much, but I pick up where he left off.

“Unless they got pulled under and sucked down the rapids.” I feel my empty stomach clench tight.

His eyes stay locked on me as I pause to gather my thoughts then, without pretense, my body involuntarily spins to get dressed and go after Jessa and that’s when I notice them.

Two men standing behind my commanding officer.

“Look, Jack. We know you and Jessa became close but you need to let the team handle it. Finding her and her brother is their priority while we’re still here. Our mission still stands though and your orders are to pack up and let them do their job.” His attempt at pacifying me is beginning to speak to a part of me that I don’t want to show as the way he trivializes my feelings for her ignites my fight or flight reflexes.

We didn’t become close.

She was it.

She was everything.

She was mine and after the arrests were made, I was coming for her. I was going to come clean about everything. I was going to tell her I was undercover and older than she thought I was. I was going to ask her to forgive my secrets and I was going to tell her I loved her.

Now she’s gone.

Navigating The Stars by Maria V. Snyder Blog Tour + Excerpt & Giveaway!





NAVIGATING THE STARS Digital Assets
Title: NAVIGATING THE STARS (Sentinels of the Galaxy #1)
Author: Maria V. Snyder
Pub. Date: December 1, 2018 (US Publication Date)
Publisher: Maria V. Snyder
Formats: Paperback, eBook
Pages: 464



Navigating the Stars is the first book in a new science fiction series.

Terra Cotta Warriors have been discovered on other planets in the Milky Way Galaxy. And Lyra Daniels' parents are the archaeological Experts (yes with a capital E) on the Warriors and have dragged her to the various planets to study them despite the time dilation causing havoc with her social life.

When one of the many Warrior planets goes silent, and looters attack her research base, Lyra becomes involved in discovering why the Warriors were placed on these planets. And, more importantly, by who. 



Some background info - Niall and Lyra are illegally worming into the Q-net to find out what happened to the people on Planet Xinji (it went silent). They're in Lyra's bedroom with the door closed and are sort of friends at this point in the story.

Excerpt:

A knock on my door sends me a meter into the air.

“Li-Li,” my father says. “We need to talk to you. Got some time?”

“Uh, just a minute, Dad,” I call, while working to hide the evidence. Then I realize I have more to hide than files. I lower my voice. “Um…I don’t suppose you can fit under my bed.”

“I’m not hiding.” Niall stands.

“But…” I gesture to the terminal. “They’ll suspect.”

“Suspect what?” He pockets his tangs.

Is he purposely being obtuse? “That we’re worming despite the captain’s orders.”

“We can use the Officer Radcliff loophole.”

“Niall,” I hiss.

“Is something wrong?” my dad asks. “I hear voices.”

“Uh…be right out,” I say.

Then Niall gets this evil little grin on his face. “Let’s give them something else to suspect.” He scrubs his hands through his hair, creating little spikes. He reaches for me.

I step back. But he’s quick and grabs my shoulders, pulling me close.

“Oh no you—”

His lips press against mine, cutting off the rest of my protest. They’re firm and warm and sparks of electricity shoot through my body. He’s had some experience with this and…damn…all coherent thoughts dissolve as his fingers weave through my hair. His clean scent of sage grass fills my senses and he tastes like mint. Wait… when did our lips part? When did I start kissing him back?

“Lyra, what’s going on?” my mother demands.

We jerk apart.

“What the hell?” I ask Niall.

“You needed to look like you’ve just been kissed, Mouse.”

An angry heat flushes my face. “You—”

“Mission accomplished,” he says and opens the door. Both my parents are standing there. “Hello, Dr. Daniels. Mr. Daniels.”

My father steps back to let Niall pass, but my mother blocks his path to the exit. A coldness emanates from her that makes absolute zero feel warm. “Hello, Mr. Radcliff. I didn’t know you were visiting us tonight,” she says.

“I just stopped by to see Lyra.” He sidesteps my mom as if unaware of her disapproval. “Later.” He gives us all a jaunty wave and is out the door before anyone can respond.

I’m gonna kill him. But first, I brace for the lecture. And they don’t disappoint. Did you know an unwanted pregnancy can ruin a person’s future? And that these space boys—my mother’s term, not mine—have sex with girls all over the Galaxy because they know they won’t ever see them again? I try to remind my parents that I’m a reasonably intelligent person, that I already know all this and they should trust me. But they remind me about my teenage hormones, and that reason, intelligence, and logic are all trumped by the chemical cocktail that is raging in my body. Yes, they used the word raging.

And, thinking back to Niall’s kiss…they sort of have a point.







Maria's Bio

Maria V. Snyder changed from being a meteorologist to a novelist in 1995, when she began writing to keep her sanity while raising two children. Since then, she has published numerous freelance articles in magazines and newspapers, and teaches fiction-writing classes at the local college and area libraries. The classes give her the wonderful opportunity to encourage fellow writers, and to keep improving her craft.

Born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Maria always had a fascination with big storms. Dreaming of chasing tornados, Maria earned a bachelors of science degree in meteorology at Penn State University. But she discovered, much to her chagrin, that forecasting the weather wasn't one of her skills. In order to chase tornados you had to predict where they might form. Creating fantasy worlds where she has complete control of the weather was more agreeable to her.

Maria's research on food-tasting methods with an expert chocolate taster, her husband, turned out to be a delicious bonus while writing Poison Study.

Maria has a brown belt in Isshinryu Karate, and enjoys playing volleyball and the cello. Traveling in general and via cruise ship in particular are her biggest distractions from writing. Maria has traveled to Belize, Canada, China, Costa Rica, Europe, Mexico, the Caribbean and through the Panama Canal.
Maria lives with her husband, son, daughter and yellow lab, Hazelnut, in Pennsylvania where she is at work on more LUNA novels. She is also pursuing a master's degree in writing popular fiction from Seton Hill University.
