Sneak Peek: Artemis Invaded by Jane Lindskold

Artemis Invaded by Jane LindskoldIn Artemis Invaded, Jane Lindskold returns to the world of Artemis, a pleasure planet that was lost for millennia, a place that holds secrets that could give mankind back unimaginable powers. We hope you enjoy this excerpt.

Chapter One: Forbidden Areas

“‘Forbidden,’ you say? That sounds promising.”

“Yes, I think it is. Look at this codex, Griffin. Maiden’s Tear has been a forbidden area since before the slaughter of the seegnur and death of machines. There were other such prohibited zones, but they were not as absolutely off-limits as Maiden’s Tear seems to have been.”

Adara the Huntress looked to where two heads—one deep gold, the other a warm, dark brown—were bent with excited concentration over the map spread between them on the polished boards of the long table. Two heads, two men, two friends, both of herself and of each other.

Paperback Spotlight: Artemis Awakening by Jane Lindskold

Artemis Awakening by Jane Lindskold

Once a month, we’re spotlighting a Tor book that’s about to become available in paperback. Today, we’re featuring Artemis Awakening, the first of the Artemis series by Jane Lindskold, publishing March 31.

In Artemis Awakening, young archaeologist Griffin Dane is stranded on Artemis, a forgotten but dangerous pleasure planet. With the help of Adara, he struggles to uncover the secrets Artemis has been keeping for centuries. We hope you enjoy this excerpt:

CHAPTER 1

A falling star! What luck!

Adara the Huntress froze in place, watching as a thin white line with a heart of fire grew into a wider streak that rushed earthward at an incredible speed. She frowned thoughtfully.

It must be huge to be visible in daylight.

The moment the streak vanished below the tree line, the ground trembled. A crashing louder than any thunder caused Adara to press her hands protectively over her ears. In the glade around her, spring pale leaves shook and dry needles showered from the evergreens.

Immediately, Adara sent out a mental cry. Sand Shadow had been ranging near where the star must have hit. The puma should be unharmed—Adara would have felt its death or pain.
