Prologue

3rd Person Pov

"Some people will never accept the history of us. They think that we are savages and that we are evil. We must not bow before these people! We will fight! We are Vikings and we will never bow!"

A small little boy looks at the chief in complete awe. He is small, ostracized because of it, and all he ever wanted was to be like the big man that ran the tribe. He was the small boy's hero. He was a little orphan as well and he was holding his grandfather's hand. He hears the old man snort.

"Grandpa, why'd you do that?" He asks as they walk away.

"Even though we're Vikings it doesn't mean we can't lose, and we will lose if that meat head is leading us."

"But grandpa, the chief is a great Viking!"

"Yes, but that doesn't necessarily mean he's a good leader. He doesn't have much going on in his head, and he is young. We will die out soon enough."

"Will I die?"

"Not if you're smart about it. They'll believe you when you say you aren't a Viking. All of the other children look like Vikings. You have the advantage."

"Oh, but I thought Vikings were supposed to fight to the end."

"Yes, but we are not normal Vikings. Let me tell you a story." The child is quiet as they go home eager for a story. Once they are home his grandfather sits him on his lap.

"Once long ago there was a young boy called Hiccup, Hiccup Horrendous Haddock. The heir to the Hairy Hooligans. However, like you he was small and smart. He would rather think about things and draw them, then fight dragons and other Vikings."

"He sounds like me."

"Yes, he does sound like you. Now, he was ignored by his father and he had almost no one to love him after his mother died. He worked in the village forge, and he did very well for himself. However, he was practically tortured by his own cousins and the children his age." The little boy's eyes widened. "One day he created a bola and shot down a night fury…"

The child was enveloped into the story.

Jason Phang: More, I want MORE! Your stories are keeping me from games and (gasp) even sleep! Each chapter brought fresh hooks that I willingly wolfed down (pun intended) and I just couldn't bear going to sleep not knowing what happens next to Lindsay and Wayne. I also loved how the epilogue was done. Excelle...

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!

Erin Crowley: The concept here is really strong, but the execution is definitely lacking. Tenses, grammar, etc are all off, with at least one or more errors per 'Page' on my phone. The writing style is almost broken- sentences move into each other awkwardly, and are filled with an excess of "filler words", lik...

Lauren Sanby: This is an excellent story. Very gripping and keeps your attention throughout. Hoping the author is writing a sequel because I'd love to read more about Rhi and Andreas and find out what else Rhi is able to do with her powers.

Alex Rushmer: This was not what I expected, but I enjoyed it a lot Malfoy was always one of the characters that I liked a lot, so I like that a lot of this happens between him and Colette. I read the first couple chapters, and I enjoyed your writing style and am excited to see where you take this story. My com...

amarin8388: Bottom Line: I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys Science Fiction. During my reading, I thought many times that this would make a good story for a movie. It reminded me of the StarWars movie franchise, not because of the plot but because of the diversity of chara...

maewilde25: I am so in love with this story!!! captivated me till the very end, there wasn't a dull moment. Didn't particularly enjoy the lay out and some bits of info was missing along with how a 21 year old man amassed so much wealth that needed to be explained other than that and a few spelling errors, th...

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...

kwilliams: I am an avid reader, and I do mean AVID and few indie authors capture my attention the way you have. I absolutely fell in love with these characters and their story. I'm usually not a fan of the cliff hanger endings (be it a series or not), but this one made me download the Kindle app just so I c...

Satabda Chatterjee: Each and every charecter develops during the whole course of the journey and keeps secretly love for the princess . However the way that writter expressed each situatuons that the princess faced quite relevant and keeps the suspense always at the end of the chapter. . . .which makes the reader m...

Marijana1: The melancholy present throughout this story has the power to influence and etch into the minds of the readers, to stay there and refuse to leave even after they have finished reading the story. This is a deep, powerful story, making the readers wonder about everything – about love, about their e...

Felisa Yoder Osburn: I really enjoyed the story. Civil War stories are some of my favorites and the intertwining of the past with current times was wonderful. I look forward to reading the next stories.
