Mouse and Dragon, the long-awaited sequel to Lee & Miller’s beloved Scout’s Progress hits stores June 1 from Baen Books. Snippets follow.
Daav: I am her copilot in a hostile port. Her brother did his utmost to murder her, and nothing to his credit, that he failed. If he failed.
Aelliana: But. . .Am I damaged?
Daav: She was his destined lifemate. They were to have shared…everything. She had been hurt, grievously, and no one called to aid her.
Aelliana: The door opened. I knew it was Daav before I turned, and nothing more natural than to walk into his arms.
Daav: “Your pardon, Pilot. It will not happen again.” Aelliana shook back her hair. “Now THAT was not the correct answer.”
Aelliana: If it must be said before Korval to be true, then I say that I wish, very much, to come under Korval’s care.
