Adventure / Fantasy

Chapter 1

I woke with a start as I felt like I was spinning out of control. At first I thought I was just dizzy, but when I opened my eyes, I saw what was actually happening. There was a swirling black hole covering nearly all my bedroom floor. My bed flew out from under me and out the window. It was as I was being carried away that I realized it was a tornado. I beat my multi-coloured wings frantically as I tried to escape.

As I was being carried out of my house, I yelled out for help. "Auria!" I heard a voice yell frantically. "I'll save you!" I recognized the voice as that of my best friend; Camden. I could imagine him flying as frantically as he could, his white hair fluttering and his silvery wings beating furiously against the wind. I hoped he would be able to rescue me, but I doubted he would succeed. I closed my eyes and let myself be swept away. The noise was overwhelming and my head was spinning.

After what seemed like hours, but in reality was probably only several minutes, I was spat out of the tornado. I landed with a thump on clouds that felt different than the ones in the city of Nuvolio. I sat up slowly and tried to look around, but my vision was still spinning. I sat still for a moment and waited for the dizziness to clear. What I saw as soon as my vision cleared horrified me. The clouds were dark, stormy and gloomy. I knew where I was and it was a place the fairies of Nuvolio were never allowed to go. It was the place known as Ombre Caelum. Many of the creatures in Ombre Caelum were nasty creatures who loved to spread terror and there was a dark fairy named Tirell. He had a nasty temper and he ever found a Nuvolio fairy in his territory, he would start a war that would create a storm the likes of which the creatures of the Earth below would never be able to comprehend.

I got up as fast as I could and stretched out my wings to fly, only to find that my right wing hurt. I fluttered my wings experimentally and managed to lift myself into the air before landing back on the dark clouds below with a bump. It looked like I'd have to walk and that made me nervous because that meant I'd be slower and more exposed to the dark creatures of Ombre Caelum. Just as I was about to start the trek in what I thought was the general direction of my home, there was a terrifying sound above me; a blood curdling whinny. I looked up to see a dark shadow horse with huge black wings above me. I paused for just a minute and then started running. There was no way I wanted to be food for a Nightmare Pegasus.

I thought I was going to outrun the nightmare pegasus for a split second, until I realized it was right above me again and it was about to go in for the kill. I was in huge trouble and I knew it. I stopped in my tracks and turned to face it head on. If I was going to die, I was going to die fighting.

Roy Jenner: I was pleased to join the action where this B-17 was limping back across the English Channel defying all odds.

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly.

They should have different names a...
