Chapter 00 - Prologue

Cold...

It was cold in the area of Dragonblight, but instead of the usual cold of the snow, the empty chill from Death and Decay could be felt.

Scourge.

They had left a trail of death. There, where you could once smell the scent of sweet flowers, now crept the smell of blood and rotting flesh into your nostrils. Nothing was saved, not the flowers, nor the plants or any living creature. Not even the snow. It was clear from the muddy path which way they had gone.

"This looks truly horrific", a female Orc spoke. "So it has begun."

"Sadly, yes. It seems like he has started gathering his army of Death" replied a fierce Troll.

The Horde continued to stare at the enormous ravage the Scourge had left. The army that had passed was massive. The Lich King was growing in strength and they had to fight against his powers.

A small Blood Elf woman stood in the front line. Even though she looked tiny and tender, she actually was a proud and courageous warrior, standing firm on her feet. But right now she, too, looked in front of her with visible horror spelled on her face. Then she turned her head to watch the Tauren next to her, who looked more miserable than anyone else.

"Mani?"

The Tauren flinched, then looked at her with big eyes. "Vixen, how… I didn't know… that he had gathered this many… Do you think there is any chance-"

"I don't know, Mani…", Vixen quickly interrupted. She couldn't look him in the eyes, knowing the answer was on her face. Of course nobody on their course would have survived. But she could see from the look on his face that, somehow, he had hope. "Why don't we go to her place?", Vixen suggested.

Without an answer Manitti transformed into a bird and slowly flew away. Vixen quickly discussed his sudden disappearance with the others in the front line and then followed the tauren-druid on her mighty steed. They would be able to get away if there were still some Scourge left.

He was afraid of what he would discover there.Her place was ruined as well. The corpses of drown and killed animals floated in the big lake. The trees were black from the ash. Manitti landed here and called her name. But there was no response. The Frost Nymph was gone, or she was dead like all the others. "Impossible", Manitti whispered. But if she was gone, had she taken the child with her? Was she safe, or was she dead? "She swore an oath with me…"

"And she did keep that oath."Manitti hadn't heard Vixen arrive behind him."Look there, in the middle of the lake."

There, in the middle of the lake, drifted an ice block, glittering from the blood. Inside lay the frozen body of a child.

Hawkebat: Playing both Kotor I & II and Swtor I found the story line interesting and it held me until chapter 35 Very good story and plot flow until then, very few technical errors. I felt that the main character was a bit under and over powered, as it fought for balance. The last few chapters felt too f...

Abbie: i couldn't stop crying at the end. The end leaves you wondering if there is a sequel. So the question is "Is there a Sequel?

sanbyra: This story is very well written and flows beautifully. I became engrossed in the romance element as well as the impending war. The action scenes are also depicted very well. I can't wait to read what happens next!

Dru83: This is the second or third time I've read this one and I just love it. It has just about everything you could ever want packed into one scifi story. It still has some parts that are a little rough in terms of grammar, punctuation, and word usage, but it's still an awesome story. I love how detai...

heavyreader: great scifi novels but needs a better spell checker (check auto-substitution level) and grammar checker!!! otherwise, ready for mass market publishing!!

Joseph Adu: I love the story but the spelling and grammar made me give 4 stars. And also it's too short .I didn't get to know what went on with Jack .I think everyone should read it because it is really interesting and a great time keeper.

internathunal: I was held captive by your sense of style. I would love to see more from you. I enjoyed this immensely.

rudyoxborough46: An action-packed, mystical adventure awaits anyone wishing to read this novel. I’m amazed at how well you’ve managed to flesh out the characters in this book, and I hope to read more of your work.I’ve read books about goblins and elves and all that mumbo-jumbo before, and most accounts of these c...

Hudson: Your story was fantastic Erin! The Rising Sun was one of the first stories I read on Inkitt, and I have to say I don't regret the three to four days I spent pouring through the story.Probably the biggest strength I see in your writing is your characterisation of Eliana, Oriens, and the rest of th...

littlebunnypoopoos: Omg this was so amazing! The ending was a little bad and predictable. But otherwise, I need a second book or I'll die :D The character development was excellent and the whole romance, action, and suspense was superb

mullikin902: Do not start reading this book unless you have enough time to finish it in one sitting, because you will not be able to put it down! Superlative! Addictive! Deliciously wicked characters you can't get enough of. Impatiently waiting for the sequel!

Stephen Warner: To start off, I am thoroughly impressed. The writing style is somewhat unique, and the plot seemed to move at a nice and steady pace. However, I was not expecting this to be a vampire book! I am usually not one for novels about vampires, but I was pleasantly surprised! You wrote with such grace a...

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly. I do not believe the author put the apostrophes in the names just to be unique, but because the characters are supposedly of a different race than humans. They are Anmah. They should have different names a...
