RANGE

THE MAGPIE BRIDGE
I Am Just/Not Junco
J. A. Huss
Published: March 27, 2013
Genre: New Adult Science Fiction
RANGE INFO

Two years have passed since Inanna stole Junco away from Lucan. Two years of unimaginable pain. Two years of isolation, mutilation and torture. Two years of fear and loneliness in a morph tank. And that’s not something you just get over, even if you are psycho-assassin, Junco Coot.

Now Junco has to learn to live with the consequences. Her Siblings are suspicious and angry, half her team is dead, Tier is wreaking death and destruction, Lucan is holding his secrets close, and she is spiraling out of control.

There is only one partnership that matters anymore – only one person she will trust and take direction from – and only one way out of the Hell she’s been sentenced to.

Junco is tired of fighting and death. She’s had enough and this time she means to end it – once and for all.

EXCERPT

The last time I was here in Subjack’s tunnels pops back into my mind. The day I met Gideon again after being separated for years, back when I was still tucking down those memories. He was acting the same way with me then, exasperated with my detached attitude.”—I don’t want you to start any shit in here, got it?”

“Why would I start shit, Gid? I’m not a complete psychopath.”

He stares down at me, his eyes darting back and forth as he searches mine, then blinks and straightens up. “OK, whatever then. No scenes.”

I shrug. Why would I create a scene?

The biometrics on the door are triggered by someone on the other side and it slips open with a perfunctory whoosh.

When I look into the new room, Tier is staring down at me and I lunge at him, clasping my hands around his throat.

“You asshole, how dare you come here!” More words are spewing out of my mouth, ‘fuck’ mostly, ‘bastard’ and ‘dickhead’ put in several appearances, and then we’re wrestling on the ground. I’ve got my foot wrapped around his neck and he’s trying to grab my hands as Gideon pulls on me. I swing back with an elbow and crack Gid hard in the chin and he growls. My pretty flower dress is picking up little dust bunnies and all sorts of other debris as we roll around on the floor but I could give a shit.

“How dare you,” I growl as I lean down into Tier’s ear. “How dare you show your face to me again!”

“Junco!” he commands me as he squirms. “Calm the fuck down! That’s an order!”

I wriggle out of his grip and swing my foot around, slap him in the face with it, and then flip over and crack him once in the neck. “Fuck you and your orders, you prick.”

His hands scramble to grab me by the waist, then slip up my dress and I remember I’m hiding something. Something he’s not supposed to know about. I stop my struggle for a brief moment, hoping his hands will stop, but they don’t. They slide right up and find my secret.
And then he lets go and pushes me off him.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

J. A. Huss likes to write new adult books that make you think and keep you guessing. Her favorite genre to read is space opera, but since practically no one reads those books, she writes new adult science fiction, paranormal romance, contemporary romance, urban fantasy, and books about Junco (who refuses to be saddled with a label).

She has an undergraduate degree in horses, (yes, really–Thank you, Colorado State University) and a master’s degree in forensic toxicology from the University of Florida. She used to have a job driving around Colorado doing pretty much nothing but shooting the breeze with farmers, but now she just writes, runs the New Adult Addiction and Clean Teen Reads Book Blogs, and runs an online science classroom for homeschoolers.

The Case for College: a Rant – & Review @ New Adult Addiction

Did you ever wonder why there aren’t more books in a college setting?  I did, and when I went looking for answers, I found a bunch of garbage that infuriated me and spawned this guest post “The Case for College: a Rant” which you can find today over at New Adult Addiction.  Here’s a sneak preview:

“College students are too busy to read for pleasure and teenagers are too absorbed in their own lives to want to read about college.”

a. First off, since *when* are college students the sole target market for books in a college setting?? As evidenced by the, oh, THOUSANDS of blogs and websites dedicated to new adult, young adult, and middle grade books WHICH ARE RUN BY ADULTS, obviously people don’t only read books about characters their own age (and boy would we miss out on a TON of amazing books if we did!).

b. Claiming that teenagers are too absorbed in the present to think about the future is just plain insulting. High schoolers spend ENDLESS amounts of time preparing for and applying to college. I’m supposed to believe that they aren’t the *least* bit curious what it’s actually like? That they have NO interest in reading about college-age characters? Actually, I WAS a high school student who wanted to read about college less than 10 years ago, so I know for a fact that this isn’t true. I call bull.

Plenty more exasperation and vitriol where that came from, so head over to New Adult Addiction for the rest!  And while you’re there, check out Julie’s great 4-star review of Stitch (“Durante is building a world that will require readers to think and I like this.”  You can say that again! :-)  Thanks so much to Julie for hosting!!!  (Oh, and btw, Julie is the author of a highly-reviewed New Adult sci-fi series with an entire website filled with extra content – check out the awesomeness at www.iamjustjunco.com!)
