Rise of the Brave Tangled Dragons

By Katherine Danielli

Action / Adventure

Prologue


It was a beautiful night in the Garden of Eden; Emily often enjoys her walks in the light of the moon. Her flowers bloom with the right amount of dew, the sparkling river with koi fish was fresh as the air, and peddle stones produce a beautiful shine on their smooth surface. It was a place that seems like a perfect utopia.

As a spirit of Nature, she wouldn't feel tired or sleepy. But she still likes the dreams Sanderson always gives. As she was about to tuck herself in her flower bed and prepares to dream, a pain shot through her body.

"Something is not right." She said under her breath as sweat covered her face. She felt valuable and miserable. It was a feeling of evil in the world, that something was taken that should never have.

She quickly races out of her flower home, through her garden and race down to a rocky road. When she reached the end, her face was shocked. A jail cell that was in the cliff side was broken. The bars of rock scattered at her feet. The only thing remained there were tiny bits of black sand.

"No, it's no possible." Emily said in disbelief. "He's supposed to be too weak from that battle to break out."

Emily knew what this meant, and she was terrified. Her body could sense a powerful force that she kept hidden is stolen too. As she wonders what to do, a light shine on her. She looks up at her old friend in the moon; understanding what must be done.

"It's time isn't it?" she asks her friend.

She didn't require him to answer. She slowly walks backs to her garden and to a fountain in the middle. She took a deep breath and began to gather her energy, to sing a melody.

Now when the world is shadowed and dark

Now when the sky is empty of stars

Now when the world is wrapped in sleep

In a quiet endless and deep

In the silence of the night

As she sings the environment around her began to glow. As the beat turns up, she began to dance around.

Far off in the distance

A fire comes to life

A flicker of a flame breaks through the dark

Burning soft and bright

Dancing with the light

Awakening the Heavens and the Earth

Far across the ocean

A flame is rising high

Breaking through the shadows and the dark

Shining in the night

Rising with the light

Here to wake the Heavens and the Earth

Soon the glow of the world began to go towards the sky and began to foam four symbols above the garden. The first was a snowflake, than a flower, next the sun and finally a leaf. Emily smiles as the powers of old gathered around her once again.

Now as the light starts to rise

Now as the day opens wide

Now as the dreams slips away

You wake to the day

You wake to the light

Here as your dream falls away

Feel as the dark turns to day

Leave the shadows behind

And the dream called in blind

Turn into the light

In between the symbols were auras of people that danced around the sky. Near the flowers was a girl with really long hair. The sun had a young woman in a dress with a sword. Next to the leaf was a young boy playing with a large creature with wings. And lastly, with the snowflake was a boy with a big staff. All the figures circled around their respective symbols.

Far off in the distance

A fire comes to life

A flicker of a flame breaks through the dark

Burning soft and bright

Dancing with the light

Awakening the Heavens and the Earth

Far across the ocean

A flame is rising high

Breaking through the shadows and the dark

Shining in the night

Rising with the light

Here to wake the Heavens and the Earth

Soon those symbols and aura of people burst to dust and spared across the area. Then they made themselves into stardust and flew up to the Man in the moon.

Emily looks up and smiles; "now it's up to them." She proclaims

Far off in the distance

A fire comes to life

A flicker of a flame breaks through the dark

Burning soft and bright

Dancing with the light

Awakening the Heavens and the Earth

Far across the ocean

A flame is rising high

Breaking through the shadows and the dark

Shining in the night

Rising with the light

Here to wake the Heavens and the Earth

Here to wake the Heavens and the Earth

To light

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...

frank17boy3: Great story ,it took me back to the days of Hank Janson etc if you are of a certain age you will know what I mean.Straight forward and no messing about,more twists than a rattlesnake.l Loved it.If you like an none stop page turner I think you will too,

Jordi Roig Avellanet: The first one really took me up for a ride and surprised me really pleasently. This one, up until now, has been amazing too. The characters and their powers are very curious and I'd like to see where all this intense dark plotting goes. I hope it gets finished.

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

Dina Husseini: It was a great hook. I do not like reading scifi because they end up being like all the rest but this one kept me wanting more.

Dru83: This is perhaps my favorite part of the Olafson story just because it is here that were are introduced to his "gang". The characters are so diverse and complicated that each of them could just about spawn their own story. Eric's buddies are just so captivating and the plot just rolls along. Again...

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

Diana123: This is a very intense and intriguing story. I love how it is mysterious and secretive and I have really enjoyed it. The moment when Kris meets Max and the way Elsa actually “introduces” him, by making Kris look at the picture on her iPad first is a scene that has stayed etched into my mind (amon...

petew25: I have been reading WW2 novels for years and am a retired Marine pilot. Though the plot in some ways reminded me of the Gregory Peck classic leadership movie, "Twelve O'Clock High" I thought the author did a good job overall. The plot was believable and the characters were as well. In some places...

Christopher Chew: Been a while since reading was this fun. The plot was easy to follow and built at a gradual but good pace. The dynamics between each character were interesting and kept things fresh and exciting, very much so that you would forgive it for not going deeper into the back stories of each character. ...

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...

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

John Smith: This is what Sci Fi is all about. Reads like early Heinlein. In the style of Space Cadets. No esoteric problems..but good ol blaster and space action with a host of relatable characters
