Falcon Boy: Vol. 1: 70 ‘The Needs of the Many’ Part I

TroublebotEllis knew that she needed to do something straight away or the badly-dancing Troublebots were going to ruin the show. Not only that, they would also be helping Dr Don’t Know do something really wicked. She looked around.

Bewilder Bird was up into the lighting gantry high above the stage. Ellis could see that he looked pretty tangled – one of his claw-foot-boots was caught in a coil of electrical cable – and so it was unlikely that he would be able to spring into action anytime soon.

She signalled to him and pointed at the stage. He shook his head and cupped his ear. He couldn’t hear what she was saying even though she hadn’t said anything. Ellis feared that this was going to be a long night.

Rather like Windy, but nowhere near as speedy, Falcon Boy had gone to alert the authorities and it wasn’t long before Ellis found him returning with Captain Lori Lorimer and a selection of her finest men and women.

‘I’m glad you are here, Captain Lorimer,’ said Ellis. ‘Dr Don’t Know’s Troublebots have disguised themselves as backing dancers.’ Ellis pointed out onto the stage. ‘Look out for the ones who can’t dance.’

Author: Barnaby Taylor

Inspired by his passion for films and video games, Barnaby Taylor loves writing dystopian science fiction and horror. He has recently written the VIRO series about a gang of teenagers struggling to survive in a world overrun by the infected. There are currently three books in the series and Book Four is on the way. VIRO is rapidly infecting the Amazon charts and gaining rave reviews along the way. Here's one of the latest reviews: 'I found myself sucked right into the characters and never-ending action and gore page after page. I very rarely buy books, but immediately purchased number two which I found equally as engrossing. Yesterday I bought book three in the VIRO series and instead of a good night's sleep I've got red eyes and a need for Red Bull! Fantastic series for all my zombie lovers out there!' Book One is currently FREE to download at the following links: http://bit.ly/VIRO1UKKindle http://bit.ly/VIROBOOK1 Barnaby posts weekly updates on his writing on his blog and you can follow these updates at www.falconboy.ie.
