Happy new year’s everyone. I’m trying to be hopeful that 2017 will be a better year but the logical side of me says, fat chance.
I found a little bit of the New Year’s celebration from Soldiers of the Sun for today (and it gives me a little leeway as I’ve been doing a lot of my holiday writing for friends and not working on anything new per se).
It’s the first mission for the demon hunters, Caleb Agni and Temple (all three are lovers) and Temple’s newest partners in the Soldiers of the Sun, Jo. They’re protecting a New Year’s eve party (in the 1930s) from demons.
Caleb pulled out his pocket watch. “If nothing else there’s only an hour until the New Year. The party probably won’t last much longer than that.”
“I hate dress shoes,” Agni said, wriggling his foot at Caleb in emphasis. “The party has already lasted too long.”
“This is why Temple calls you grumpy.”
“He does that to irritate me because he enjoys it. I could have thought of many far more enjoyable ways to ring in the New Year than this.” Agni’s expression clued Caleb in to what he had in mind. Given his partner’s extensive knowledge of certain sexual texts from India, Caleb felt very sad to be on duty at this moment.
Blurb Caleb Davies and Agni Pradesh are worried about their teammate and lover, Temple Chevalier. Not only has he lost his long-time partner, Fu Li, but he nearly died fighting a demon himself. Also, Temple isn’t sure he’s ready for a new teammate after Li. Caleb and Agni are even more concerned that their three-way relationship with Temple exists less because he loves them and more because he’s hiding from the pain of Li’s loss.
1932 shapes up to be a terrible year for the Soldiers as they welcome the New Year fighting demons and then end up investigating a case that pairs them up with the Knights Templar. This would normally be a good thing, but it forces Temple to face his painful past. Worse yet, the case leads right to Astaroth, a Prince of Hell, who might prove to be an unbeatable foe.

Ah, the deprivations of duty!
They’re getting used to it.
I second Agni’s comment about dress shoes (I say as I’m wearing fuzzy socks and slippers). Its fun reading a scene with the words “there’s only an hour until the New Year,” then glancing at the clock and seeing that’s rather close to my own reality!
I’m with Agni myself, also in fuzzy socks and about an hour til new year’s too.
Ha! Loved that last line!
(And I don’t even own dress shoes, come to think of it.)
thanks. I no longer have heels.
Another hater of dress shoes here.
Poor Caleb, too bad duty calls and he can’t do something more fun.
ha. thanks. Caleb will have to wait.
