This is a short teaser from chapter two of our novel: "The Clashes Of Tarn" Complete 1st chapter Look inside before you buy for $2.99 

A gunshot echoed in the distance behind them interrupting the conversation. The Kreedons quickly gathered at the base of the cavern walls and began to climb the sheer rock. Tan stood in awe as he watched them.
“Bad Hooomuns coming here,” Rubach said, pointing in the direction the sound had came from. “We must go to Tarn.”
“Wait!” said Sandy. “Where is this Tarn? How do we get there?” 
Rubach pointed up the face of the rock wall to a large opening; the distance to it spanned at least 500 feet from the floor to the opening.
“Tarn there,” he said. “You come with us!”
“How can we get up there?” Tan asked with a frantic tone to his voice. “We can’t climb that; it's too high.”
Rubach stopped and looked Sandy and Tan up and down as if taking their measure. He reached out with his huge hands and spun Sandy around by her shoulders. Then, grasping her around the waist, he lifted her up over his head and placed her firmly on his huge shoulders so that her legs hung across his massive chest.
“You have got to be kidding,” Sandy screeched.
“What about me? Tan said. "We both can’t ride."
“Kaloot will carry Tan Hoooomun,” Rubach said. “Kaloot, come!” he barked the order. 
Shortly, another huge Kreedon appeared beside them and hefted Tan onto its shoulders in the same fashion Rubach had done with Sandy. It was really quite a comfortable seat Tan was thinking as he gathered up both hands full of the long hair of the creatures head imitating the reins of a horses bridle. Sandy saw him do this and repeated the action with the hair of Rubach.
“We go now,” said Rubach. 
Reaching for a grip on the wall, he began the effortless climb to the opening where the rest of the Kreedons were disappearing into its blackness. Kaloot, who was equally as agile and not struggling in the least with the effort, followed close behind.
Tan and Sandy were both amazed at how easy it was to stay seated. After a short distance, they both became quite accustomed to the strange creatures movements as they ascended the wall. 
"Whooooeeee” shouted Tanner as they scurried up the wall at a rapid pace without so much as a slip from the huge creatures' grips on the rock surface. Their hooves stuck to the rock like glue and their claws dug into the rock as if it were made of butter. Sandy now realized how the scratches in the rock walls had been formed back in the large room they had found earlier. She recalled the strange markings in the stone that had no real pattern to them. They were no doubt just the impressions left by the constant movements of the Kreedons, as they scurried up and down the rock-faced cavern.
“These guys are amazing, Tan!” Sandy yelled as they climbed ever higher. 
Finally, they entered the opening and continued along its dark corridors towards this unknown place called Tarn and this mysterious Kaywhy, the creatures had mentioned.
