The Black Dragon - snippet from COSMIC WARS for #WeWRiWa #SciFi Fantasy Adventure



Welcome to another Sunday with Weekend Writing Warriors. Meet writers in various genres and read 8-10 sentence snippets of their stories. Find a new author and sample their work. Enjoy!

This weekend, I’m continuing a scene from Cosmic Wars, Book 5 of the Grand Masters’ Galaxy. Cosmic Wars is due to release on Tuesday, 17th.
The Griffin family, Violet, Athanor and their son Varan, is at home, and you can read last week’s snippet HERE. Note, the Jacksons are caretakers and look after the castle.  The final lines were: “Hades, we’re under attack!” Athanor’s shout resounded in her mind. Instantly, he appeared at her side, bristling with psi flames.


Shield,” Violet warned, erecting a protective barrier around the Jacksons. Athanor followed her advice, strengthening his link with her and enveloping their son in a secure screen.
Familiar presences, fierce and solicitous, coiled into her senses. Crying, “It’s Ythris and Istrelle,” she raced onto the patio. Blue fire flickered as Athanor ported to her side, carrying Varan in his arms.
The Black Dragon, his iridescent onyx scales gleaming in the sunlight, furled his huge wings and descended onto the flagstones. Clasping their son, golden Istros, in her claws, Silver Istrelle glided down to land beside her mate. She folded her shiny wings and released her grip on the little dragon. Half a man’s height, Istros was as slender and skittish as a foal. He flapped his short wings, blinking his golden eyes in astonishment at the strange new place.

  2. Beautiful description! Silver and gold, really work in this snippet. I especially like the very visual comparison of Istros to a skittish foal.

    Aurora, I didn't see your name on the linky list. If you see this comment after the linky closes, I can still add your link. :-)
