Six Sentences from MetalMark

This is from my current work in progress, MetalMark, a lady space pirate story that I'm so in love with! (It's also a prequel to Silver Bound).

This is the first meeting of gal pirate and the prince:
Hand on sabre grip, Jazz shot to her feet and rounded on the newcomer.
     The sight shocked her speechless.
     A tall young man, skinny and pale in a voluminous purple robe seemed to float in the middle of the room. Partially covered by a lock of shiny black hair, his deep, green eyes grew wide. His fragile appeal broadsided her, and she took a step back.
     With a tilt of his head toward Carner, who’d come around to stand near her, the prince asked, “Red?”

I really like the "fragile appeal" part. It's so unusual, I want to read more just to understand it. Also, I think it's great you're doing another story set in the same world as Silver Bound (Yay!)
