THE MORRIGAN CHRONICLES

All Rights Reserved ©

Summary

What happens when you take mythological races and creatures from around the world, mix them with the legend of King Arthur, stir in vampires & werewolves, and top it off with gods and demons battling to rule? You get The Morrigan Chronicles. Peek inside the magical world intertwined with ours, as Morrigan and her friends unravel a plot thousands of years in the making. But never forget—it’s often hard to tell the difference between friend and foe. The Morrigan—Celtic goddess of war, fate, and death. I am a warrior of the Tuatha de Danann. History writes us as a supernatural race in Celtic mythology that battled demons and the Fomorians, a race similar to ours and our rivals. The last thing I remember, I fought alongside King Arthur and his knights against the Fomoire and an evil god. Then—I remember nothing. I am Morrigan, but I am no goddess and no myth. The world has spun on for centuries without my people and me. The only traces of us existing are in the legends we’ve left behind. There are mysteriously few demons and new creatures I’ve never encountered, vampires and werewolves, that roam the world. The gods are back to playing their twisted games for power, threatening to end the entire realm. There is little hope until—we are awakened. This anthology published here contains all three books of The Morrigan Chronicles: Awakening, Forged, and Raze.

Chapter 1

I SLEPT MORE soundly than ever in my eight hundred and thirty-nine years. I was warm, comfortable, carefree and safe. My entire life, once I came of age, has been as a warrior for the Tuatha de Danann. These feelings of security were mostly foreign to me.

The distant sound of a horn stirred me. Familiar, but still I stayed rooted in slumber, unable to move. Not wanting to move. A second sounding of the horn and I had the gnawing feeling I should get up. There was something of importance in the sound, but I couldn’t wake. I wouldn’t wake. The third sounding of the horn and my eyes shot open. The horn from a white sacrificial bull blown three times. What was going on?

I stood and I drew both my swords in a single movement. The smell was of damp rotting earth mixed with stagnant air. My nose curled at the scent and the stale air held heavy, making it hard to breathe. There was a small light, the size of a pebble, the only light in total darkness. It began to grow though I hadn’t moved. I looked around. My fellow Tuatha were around me, swords readied as well. My King to my left. None of us said a word. None of us moved.

Confusion took over my thoughts. I was in the middle of a great battle only a moment ago. Wasn’t I? What had happened? The King looked to me, just as dumbfounded as I felt and spoke, “Morrigan?”

My eyes didn’t leave the light as I whispered, “Be ready.”

A silhouette walked into the center of the light though I couldn’t make out the face, my eyes having trouble adjusting to the contrast from the darkness. The walk was familiar but nothing else. He wore unfamiliar clothes. Loose pants that went all the way to the ground in a shiny grey, a material I’d never seen. Sturdier than silk but flowing as he moved. He didn’t wear boots but black shoes that wouldn’t hold up for a day of walking across the countryside. His shirt was the crispest of white and a jacket over it matched his pants. He stopped and smiled. Recognition hit me.

I whispered the familiar man’s name, “Emrys.”
