Christopher Wright on the PCS and Portal

Here's a challenge - Join a group and look at the first ten books on the front page slider and go read them. That is exactly what Christopher Wright did when he joined the Pen and Cape Society. I was lucky, Portal was one of the books. He started his summary with two sentences that explain the book quite well.When a hero’s death inadvertently turned Los Angeles into a smoking crater, the government had to step in and start regulating them for everyone’s protection. But the hero’s death—and the regulation that follows—isn’t what it seems.He described the world in Portal...

Portal – Chapter 100

The Sergeant at Arms of the Senate appeared from the conference room and greeted the impeccably dressed man wearing the expensive Italian suit waiting in the hallway. His assistants, two women that could pass for runway models in Paris, stood up.“They are ready for you, Mr. Harris,” the Sergeant said as he held the door open. Christian Harris, the CEO of Harris Industries, was a smart businessman and knew that this meeting could take his company in a new direction. As he walked down the hallway to the secured conference room, his two assistant trailing behind him, he could only smile at his fortune....

The Forgotten – What is That?

Portal – Chapter 99

The world returned in a blurry vision and with someone smacking him on the side of the head. He could not make out anything in the room other than it was white and the person talking to him was male.“Wake the hell up,” the person in the room said in an urgent whisper. “I don’t have time for this crap and Net can only loop the systems for a short time or they’ll figure it out." The person slapped him harder. "Larson, wake up!”He must be dreaming because that sounded just like Justice, but that slap actually hurt. What the hell was going on?“I only have a few minutes,” Justice...

Portal – Chapter 98

As the wheels retracted and her private jet gained altitude, Jury propped her feet up and sipped her French wine. She was anxious to get back home and wash the filth and stain of Indianapolis off her. She could still smell the poor and homeless on her from the hundreds of photographs she took at the end of the JTF celebration, as well as the strong aftershave the Director wore. Now, she just wanted a shower and clean robe. Her only regret was Michael Larson was not on the plane with her. He would have made the shower much more enjoyable.The military-grade satellite phone lit up and beeped as it received...

Portal – Chapter 97

Maze paused as he climbed the last steps. Although his body remained in peak physical condition, even if his physical age was over 60, mentally, he was exhausted. He did not intend to tell the girl so much, but she looked so much like Valkyrie, the only woman he loved after his deceased wife. But he would not allow himself to think of Amanda anything other than a teammate, even when she confessed her desire to be more. He tried to explain his reasons to her brother when Valkyrie refused to talk to him afterwards, but it only solidified Orbital Strike’s distrust of him.By the time Detroit...
