Dagger Jack Updated

Like most authors, I rue the 1 and 2 star reviews. This book is FREE everywhere and someone gave it 1 star after reading 4% of the book which is like three and a half pages. This seems unfair because three and a half pages barely sets the first scene in the story! A couple other people implied that it didn’t feel like a whole story.

So I asked my go-to critical reader to help me figure out what is wrong. She had been unavailable when Dagger was due to release. She pointed out that Dagger’s story was more of an epilogue to the series, and specifically Axel Rex.

Somewhere in the middle of writing it, I realized the series had come to a point where civilization was well on its way to revival within Enclave territories. Most of the conflict that made the stories interesting, had been resolved. Yet, I wanted to resolve Dagger’s fate as it was left hanging after the incident that ‘killed’ him. This is how the novella essentially became a long epilogue for the series.

I made it free, hoping it would draw the new readers to go back and read the rest of the series. The plan was partially successful, but the way I presented it in the blurb apparently lead new readers to expect more than it was meant to be. So, made a few small revisions in the story and revised the blurb i.e. the description seen below.

I am considering a spin off series set in the same time period but outside the reclaimed Enclave territory with cyborgs helping people as they find them. That’s one of the things I have on the back burner.

New Dagger Blurb

Dagger Jack is a spinoff novella about a peripheral character introduced in Axel Rex. He was left clinically dead with catastrophic injuries sustained in an ambush by rogue cyborgs.

When he was awakened at the cyborg production facility south of Chicago, his life was mapped out for him. After he helped rebuild a city and a starport destroyed during an interstellar war, he would become a Protector in one of the rural communities reclaimed from the overlords in the east.

When he awakens the second time, he doesn’t want to be a protector. Just before he went down, he scented his female. He wants to go back to find her before he has fully recovered.

He was made for war but only her love would make him whole again.

Note: This book can be read as a standalone, but reading the previous books in the series will enhance reading this story.

Cover Reveal and New Book Excerpt

BANG!

The split second the starting gun sounded; Angie set off sprinting through the jungle. Run! Run! Run! Her feet pounded the dirt path, and her arms pumped in rhythm with every stride. A quarter span head start didn’t mean much when they were sending four burly males, each vying to claim her as their own.

Two of them only bore a passing resemblance to human. They were reptilian and blue with tails. Number three had a face like a bulldog with a lion type mane and a heavily muscled body covered in short smooth fur. He had been salivating as he raked her curvy body with his eyes.

Number four, Mr. Sexy Eyes looked human, and it did things to her insides when their gazes met. What were the chances he would find her first? One in four?

She kept running veering off onto side paths of the jungle maze. Angie was sweating profusely within minutes in the humid tropical heat.

She ran until each breath felt like a stab through her chest and she nearly doubled over from the stitch in her side. Stopping to listen, she could hear pounding footfalls from the way she had just come. She had to hide. Those big, fearsome males would catch up to her in seconds if she stayed on the path.

No way was this what she signed up for. The way they had looked at her was sinister. The looks passing between three non-humans, just before she left on her head start, made her think they had made a pact together… to share if one of them caught her.

She couldn’t catch her breath enough to run anymore; and she felt slightly nauseous. Something wasn’t right. Her head felt like she had a hangover, she was queasy and she felt… Horny? Her female parts clamored for attention.

They did this to her, those assholes who set her up for a one-way trip to this hell hole. Whoever caught her first would probably fuck her on the spot. The mere thought of release made her almost want to let it happen.

Angie mentally shook herself. She wasn’t a xenophobe. Lizards and dogs just didn’t appeal to her sexually.

If she could stay hidden until the clock ran out she would pick her mate. IF…

Dagger Jack got the name from fellow cyborgs because he used to juggle five daggers at once before throwing them one at a time at a target. He was awakened to help rebuild Chicago, then transferred to Farringay to demolitions of the ruins to make way for a new Starport on Earth. He had virtual training in demolitions, construction and as a Law Enforcement Protector. Once the Starport was finished, he would become a protector in one of the towns west of Farringay.

Ambushed by rogue cyborgs, catastrophic injuries left Dagger clinically dead and they rebuilt him. That changed everything. When he awakens the second time he doesn’t want to be a protector.

Something was missing besides the memories he lost. He was made for war but only love would make him whole again.

Dagger Jack is the Series Finale of Cyborg Awakenings, and we are offering it FREE everywhere except Amazon until we can get a price match to make it free there too. Not to worry, though, there are thousands more cyborgs on their home planet of Phantom, and more cyborgs still searching for their mates.

Coming Soon From T.J. Quinn

Arantxa thought her best friend was crazy to even think about applying to an alien matchmaking agency to find a husband. Samantha thinks it’s a great opportunity for them to escape their mundane lives and get husbands. She will even pay Arantxa fee. She finally gets Arantxa to agree with plans for them to only look for mates on the same planet.

When Samantha finds her mate first, Arantxa convinces her she should go ahead and meet him. With Samantha gone, Arantxa decides to take a chance on a man named Biurk from the same planet. Things start to go haywire from there.

Instead of letting her use the agency transport, he convinces her to let him send a ship for her. Arantxa has her suspicions that things aren’t quite right but she tamps down her doubts.

The ship is seized by pirates who kidnap her to sell as a sex slave. But before they arrange to sell her they take her back to their planet and amuse themselves by torturing her and the ship’s crew.

So Biurk hires a mercenary to rescue. Arantxa. She feels an unexpected attraction to Korben who is sent to rescue her. A wrong turn and a missing communicator leave them lost in the forest alone together.

Feeling dutybound to give Biurk a chance to court her, Arantxa fights the growing attraction to Korben. Only vaguely humanoid compared to Biurk, Arantxa doesn’t understand this illogical fascination with this alien who no one would mistake for human.

Nothing is quite as it seems nor do all the pieces fall together until almost the very end.
