Newly Revised SciFi Chapter

Preview Sons of Taldra, Chapter 1 Draft at Goodreads. Taldra and her twin sons must face new dangers to their world, both from one of its protectors and from outer space. I’ve just revised the chapter again, adding more tension at the beginning. I also renamed the aliens with a nod to the Native American folklore that inspired their creation.
