Every weekend a wonderful blog hop happens where writers share their stories. Click the box below to visit the other bloggers.
This week my snippet shows my villainess Isa in action, on the battlefield at Castle Elias, adding to her growing list of crimes against the elves and dragons in The Kingdom of Chalvaren.
“Ligare Ignis Draco in Adferunt mortem. Bind the dragon. I want him bleeding and suffering before he dies!” Isa cried.
A rigid black webbing studded with three-inch barbs shot from her fingertips.
Mia gulped in air. What kind of magic was this? She shook her head and drew back, watching Isa manipulate matter out of thin air, watching Magnus’s father tortured and defeated.
Razor-wire shot from Isa’s hands, encircling Garnet, biting through the ice which held him fast. As the black magic tore into his scales, the massive animal roared in pain. Mia’s belly spasmed and she broke free of Elissabet and Lucan and bolted forward to help.
Okay, Weekend Writing Warriors, what makes you hate a villain most?
With the love of Kort, Chalvaren’s warrior-prince heir, Mia Ansgar will seize her birthright and become the great dragon-riding wizardess prophesied to free that elven kingdom from her embittered sorceress kin.
TO ASCEND TRIUMPHANT
Twenty-five years ago, Theo Ansgar abandoned the Kingdom of Chalvaren for a hiding place on another world. Some called him traitor. Some, thief. Now his fully grown daughter Mia must return to the land of her birth…and their war.
It was the elf prince Kort Elias who brought her back. Theirs was an instant connection, an inescapable union of body, soul and sorcery, reminding Mia of what she truly is, and what she must become. There is also Magnus, destined to be more potent than any wyrm Chalvaren has ever seen, a three-day-old dragonlet Mia must nurture and then ride. And then there is the Dragonstone, an artifact of power nonpareil. Joined, they can tip the scales of battle against the wraith-possessed forces of darkness, of Mia’s own embittered kin.
Redemption will be offered, the protected will become the protector, and an ancient prophecy will come to fruition, but only righteous love can conquer all.
