Excerpt #2 Time Blade: Age of Jeweled Intelligence, book two

Excerpt from “Time Blade,” coming Fall 2015

Lessons With the Master: Luca, Spiritual Master for Earth, instructs his eight year old student about Time Blade.

“Can I kill someone with Time Blade?”

If a person poses a threat to the future of mankind, you may approach him and offer him an Honor Killing.

“What will I say?”

You will know when the time comes. Time Blade offers a quick, karma-free death and the intended recipient will understand the magnificence of that in his own terms. You, as guardian of the Blade, will have trained in the fighting arts and be capable of causing death with one thrust of the Blade.

“Will I cut his throat?”

No. You will learn a move known as the Glorious Thrust. The Thrust requires great skill. You must stab the Blade below the ribcage, push up through the diaphragm and the lungs and enter the heart, killing swiftly.

The student salivated, thinking about the Glorious Thrust. Violence was shunned in Ruberah. Fighting was an art. Young people trained and fought in competition. Most used light blades—swords powered by Rube. Taking someone’s life was forbidden, but killer instinct had a mind of its own. The student felt it bubbling in his gut as he prepared for a fight and he could smell it on his opponent. He trained rigorously and competed with light swords, fists, wrestling, and spirit fire, the art of using the opponent’s energy against him.

Born in Mevagissey, a small fishing village on the coast of Cornwall, UK, Christina formed an early love for the mystical legends of that rugged land, and wrote little stories of her own. While at boarding school, Christina liked to spin the globe of the world in the library and imagine herself visiting those lands. Pursing this dream, she worked in advertising in London and New York, did some fashion modeling in Paris, and partnered in a frog farm in Costa Rica. In 2009 Christina published her first novel, "Dream Chaser—Awakening," followed by "Written in Ruberah: Age of Jeweled Intelligence," and most recently "Time Blade: Age of Jeweled Intelligence," the second book in the AJI series. "I write for the joy of discovery. An idea burns inside me and characters leap into my imagination. I turn their desires inside out to learn the truth that drives them. I publish to share that journey with others."
