Once Walked With Dragons

By Simone1 All Rights Reserved ©

Adventure / Fantasy


Keara is destined to become the Drow Queen, but is unconcerned with such a title. She is more concerned with the eminent danger they face in the form of an old arch nemesis of the Dark Elves. In order to save the world she grew up in, she must find the dragons. Only, they haven’t been seen in centuries and she has no idea where to even start looking. And to make matters worse, no one even knows if they still exist. She sets out to find the dragons, and on her journey she discovers abilities she didn’t know she had and finds that she will have to make certain sacrifices if she is to save everyone from the darkness that plagues the world.

Chapter One

We were born from the earth. We’re descended from one species, but come from many different races. In many ways, we are alike, but in many more ways, we are very different. My four brothers and I aren’t like the others of our kind. My oldest brother, Michael and I are Dark Elves, or Drow. We were born from water, an almost indestructible element and yet, so easy to destroy. My other brothers were born from the woods. They are Woodland Elves, healers more than fighters. We were raised by humans who have been known as the Ravens for generations. As they had no human children of their own, my brothers and I became the next generation of Ravens.

The Ravens are the most elite horsemen the kingdom has at their disposal. Though, not many trust us, because we are dangerous and not under the kingdom’s control. We merely lend our services to those who are fighting for a better cause. The Ravens are the only horsemen who are completely capable of taking on the most dangerous errands.

As elves, we are immortal, but it doesn’t mean we can’t die. The Dark Elves are able to heal quite fast in their own domain, water. Woodland Elves are also capable of doing so, but they are more, sensitive to battle.

There are other horsemen who run errands for the kingdom, such as the Rorins, a group of specially skilled soldiers, named after the late King and the Golden Crests, named by the late queen and chosen for their diplomatic skills. Neither are as powerful as the Ravens, but they are more trusted, as the kingdom has full control over them.

My name is Keara. My brothers are Michael, Joseph, Alexander and Jonathan. There are many things I am not able to explain as I don’t know very much about my own kin. Michael knows much more, but refuses to tell me. He says he worries about me because I am so powerful. He says that I have too much power I can’t control yet. According to him, my characteristics and parts of my personality still draws too close to that of an unprecedented Dark Elf. Little did anyone know that it was far worse than a mere Dark Elf...

catd69: Karim is a very talented writer. When I started reading his journey it took me into the book and I was in the story till the end. I've never felt this way with any other writers stories. If you want to read a gripping adventure, this will be the one book I would suggest you pick.

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...

Giuliana Cassetta: My face is full of tears, I never cried like now with a book or even a movie. I loved every single chapter. I truly don't know what to say, I'm out of words and my eyes hurt from crying. Such an bittersweet story, it's so wonderful. One of my favorites for sure. Keep it up!

ElusiveBadwolf: I loved this book so much! It's a shame that i already came to the end of this. I really enjoyed the story, and i liked it how everything became in the end. It was a great book and i can say that you are a great writer too. Keep it that way and i think you can make it in the writing business!

Jason Phang: It's too short! The plot was excellently thought through, with the characters flowing up and down the storylines like the peaks and valleys of the Himalayas. Thoroughly enjoyed the book and the time spent with Asta and her journeys. (:

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...

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...

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...

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.

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

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...

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...
