#AtoZChallenge, Day 9: Iklis Sniper’s Longbow

IAn Iklis Sniper’s Longbow that he has named “Angela” is Grond the halfogre’s favorite weapon.  An Iklis longbow looks like a technologically advanced version of a compound bow, with limbs that collapse into the body and can be extended with the flick of a wrist.  The bowstring itself is virtual, made of energy, and the weapon generates its own ammunition as it is fired.  The sniper’s variant features a lock-on mechanism that actually allows the archer to hit a target behind cover or around a corner.

How Grond obtained this rare and valuable weapon, and who precisely the “Iklis” are, is a story yet to be told.

My theme for this year’s A to Z challenge is my series The Benevolence Archives.  You can learn more about the series by going to the Amazon page for Volume 1 here or add it to a Goodreads shelf here.
