Adventure / Fantasy


It's hard to deny the past when it's cold, red eyes are staring you right in the face. For Kimberly Taylor, a young reporter from the realm of Agona, this reality check couldn't have changed her life more. It all starts when she's given the assignment to travel to Tibiskus, another realm in the floating islands of Skykaila. How was she to know that she possessed the ability to read a lost language and that this ability would suddenly result in her being hunted? Kim must now discover her link to Skykaila's past... and an organization of dragonologists are her only aid. However, none of this even compares to Kim's true task: resurrecting Skykaila's dragons.


Humans had forgotten what used to bind them. Magic was hung by the throat, forced out of human’s consciousness by the sharp spears of incompetence. The world was dead, and all that was evil reigned supreme. War was all that existed in this barren wasteland that the dragons once called home. The beasts’ mangled bodies lay on the ground’s grey filth, wriggling in agony as one by one they were consumed. A human’s belief is what gave dragons their vibrant colours; all that was left now were black corpses.

No, not corpses, but undead monsters, with glowing red eyes and absolutely no presence other than their twitching silhouettes. All dragons had vanished from the living world of floating islands and freedom; they had been banished to this island of the dead. All dragons except for one… One dragon remained: its colour was almost too dark to make out, but it was blue nonetheless. This was the only dragon that had retained its last shred of individuality.

How?’ The dragon pondered, knowing full well that it should have been like its brethren. ’How am I still here?’

The sound of a child’s giggle met the dragon’s ears. A glimmer of light in this otherwise obscured world.

My child…’ The dragon crawled away from the others, and up onto a rocky ledge. The light shone on the dragon’s scales, making them shimmer. It purred, ’A child has been born with the other half of my soul. They’re my last hope. I must get out of here. I must save what’s left of Skykaila…’

ga1984: I really enjoyed it! Characters were deep and plot was pretty complex. A bit on the violent side but it doesnt detract from the story. Very dark but situations make sense. Ends kinda abruptly and later chapters will need some editing work. I'm assuming there's more in the works?
