This week's 8-10 sentences are from my medieval fantasy romance – The Last Dragon

Scene Set- the villagers created a litter and are bringing the injured man to town. Meliboeus Rith is the wealthiest man in town.


Derry followed behind the crowd, keeping several paces behind. Father Jacobus strode next to her. With shaggy blond curls glowing like a halo, Pariset turned and smiled. As no one else recognized her existence, she cast a friendly wink at him.

At the edge of the village, the Rith sisters met the party. Fairly dancing with excitement, black-haired Ailith peered past the group. “The sheriff said there is an injured man.”

Her younger sister, Isa, motioned the man leading the horse towards their manor house. “This way. This way.”

A wee bit more

A veil of darkness shrouded Derry as Ailith stepped in front of her and held up a hand. “No need for ye here. We can best take care of him. Ye scurry back to picking yer flowers.”

What do dragons, knights and romance have in common? Grab a copy of multi-published author Daryl Devore’s medieval fantasy romance – The Last Dragon and discover the answer.

A sorcerer craving dominance merged with a dragon, the power overwhelmed him causing him to split into three dragons. Demora ruled thought, but was lost in time. Yidithe offered protection, shining like the light of the sun. Ayrradex craved chaos, revelling in destroying souls.

Many knights died, attempting to slay the devil beast. One knight, Prince Hawkyns, did not fear death. He’d lost everything. Away on a mission when Ayrradex attacked his fathers kingdom, Penrythe, Hawkyns returned to find his noble father – feeble and defeated. His wise mother – crazed. His beautiful wife and unborn child - dead. Only a pile of ashes remained for him to bury. He knelt before his King and vowed to slay the devil-beast or be slain.

Derry was born with powers that terrified her parents. They delivered her to a nunnery to be raised in secret. Jathe, a wise sorceress, discovered the young girl and trained her to one day use the secret hidden in her soul.

Legends spoken around campfires hinted the sole way to destroy Ayrradex was when the hearts of a knight and a golden dragon became one. But after a vicious battle with Ayrradex, the golden dragon was thought to be dead.

Can Prince Hawkyns’s bravery and Derry’s powers end the reign of the devil-beast’s terror?

  1. That sounds rather condescending. I wonder how Derry will react. Nice snippet!

  2. That last line changed everything. Fun snippet.

  3. I sense some rivalry going on here. I wonder if Derry will allow herself to be bullied out of attending the wounded man? Great snippet!

  4. Poor Derry...the town certainly doesn't appreciate her! Great snippet and I can't wait for more.

  5. Denied? I think not. Derry's about to get spunky I'm thinking.

  6. That's a very dismissive last line. Will she take it lying down?

  7. That was dismissive. (geez, I just read Ed's comment. Brilliant minds. LOL) Can't wait to read what she'll do.

  8. LOL - Diane - yes, brilliant minds :-)

  9. Those are fighting words. I'm interested to see how she finds a way to stay with this guy anyways.
