The War of the Masters

By mryates06 All Rights Reserved ©

Adventure / Fantasy

Blurb

For generations Candore has determined its next heir to the throne with an all-out war between the current ruler's children. Terra, youngest of the King's offspring, bears none of the ruthless qualities shared by the rest of her family. But when her sixteenth birthday heralds the beginning of the destructive conflict, she finds unexpected help from a young fisherman named Cyrus, unwittingly thrust into the heart of the war alongside her. Aided by her faithful dragon, Terra and Cyrus must find a way to escape the King's wrath--and survive the brutal war against her cutthroat siblings and the dangerous creatures they have wrested under their control . . .

Her father’s powerful voice resounded through the castle walls. “This is the first step in the Ritual of Adulthood.”

The Ritual. Terra had dreaded this day her entire life. Though the Ritual had always remained shrouded in mystery, one thing was certain: war was about to erupt.

Her father’s glare pierced her like a knife. He could sense her hesitation and it displeased him. His eyes became narrow slits.

“Do we understand each other?”

Terra swallowed the lump in her throat, eyes not meeting her father’s gaze.

“Yes, father.”
