It is medieval times in the land of Morowak. Kings and Queens maintain sovereignty, and wielders of magic and fire breathing dragons are real. Nobleman's daughter, Arabella Wallington, is about to embark on a journey across the kingdom to meet her betrothed. Stengar McKinnon is a titled soldier in the King's army and she is assured a life of wealth and bliss. Arabella is herself a gifted war maiden, yet she follows her father's orders and employs someone to protect her along the perilous crossing. She chooses a man named Briol, whose magical abilities are tested throughout their adventure, and an enigmatic bond forms between them. Briol realizes there is something unique about Arabella, and it is brought to light. A new unforeseen path now lies ahead. This journey challenges everything Arabella has ever known.

The pain! Her head throbbed. Did she dare open her eyes? No. Nothing was real while her eyes stayed shut. But what of Briol? She had to know what happened to him. As her eyes fluttered into focus she saw them. A sea of dark-armored assassins. The Cimmerians. They laughed and cheered as the dawn dared to peek over the horizon. A few of them taunted each other with her armor and others were mocking Briol’s powers. She looked to her right as Briol was beginning to stir. He was on his knees with his arms bound behind a pole sticking out of the ground. Then she realized her arms were also tightly secured behind a pole and she fought to free them.
“Tsk, tsk,” said a voice behind her, “You won’t be going anywhere little butterfly; we clipped your wings.”
About the author:
I am not your average gal. I didn't grow up playing with Barbies or dressing in my mother’s clothes, jewelry or makeup. I drove my matchbox cars over obstacle courses, climbed trees, built forts, dreamt of owning my own horse, and pretended to be an elven princess. I continued to live my life on my terms, while staying true to my old fashioned values and respect. After completing high school, I took on a full-time job and put myself through college. In just under three years, I earned a degree in computers. I try to use that knowledge as often as I can.
