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

Scene set –Hawkyns goes into the village. He meets the Father Abbot (who speaks first)

 “I offer comfort as ye look troubled.”

Hawkyns raised both hands and rubbed his face. “Father, there is so much I do not understand.” He waved one hand around. “I know not how I came to be here. I was a few days’ ride from my home. When I went to bathe in the river... I know not what happened. I awoke on a field of soft summer flowers. An angel stood over me. I should be dead. But, I live. 

A wee bit more

I am of flesh and bone. I know right from wrong. My heart has not hardened. My soul is still mine. But, now...” He shook his head, rubbing his forehead. “I am here. How can that be?”

A mischievous smile crossed the monk’s serene face. “Those who witnessed yer arrival say ye fell from the sky. Like a fallen angel.”

Hawkyns raised his brow. “I am not an angel. Nor a demon. I am a mortal. I cannot fly. How is this possible? Some evil magick?”

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. Enjoying the way they're all so mystified. Great snippet!

  2. So many questions . . . I'm totally hooked!

  3. It certainly sounds like magic - powerful magic.

  4. I love the way he's mystified as to how he came to be there. Very genuinely confused and humble. Which makes him all the more heroic in my estimation. Great snippet! Tweeted.

  5. His confusion feels so real, and he expresses it very well.

  6. No one has answers for this! Nice. Keeping the reader in the dark too. :-)

  7. Well dang, I was hoping he'd be able to explain some of this. I guess he's just along for the ride with the rest of us?

  8. I'm guessing that something that could fly carried him and dropped him. Very intriguing!
