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

Scene set – Prince Hawkyns is still trying to deal with how he got to where he is.

Snatches of memories raced through Hawkyns’ mind. He had killed a dragon. A fire-breather. According to the legends, not the one he hunted, but a child of that one. He had placed his belongings on the shore and swam in the river to cleanse himself from the kill. Then there was pain.

The final vision was the one haunting him. Heating his loins.

The angel’s face with bright, compassionate eyes the colour of the emeralds in his mother’s crown, and with skin the colour of honey and lips begging to be kissed.

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. I wonder if he has a sense that the parent of the dragon he killed will want revenge? And will he realize the angel is actually here on earth? Can't wait for all his discoveries! Tweeted.

    1. He's in for several more shocks. Legends are all they are cracked up to be.
