Read an Excerpt:


He ran
disappearing into the night
leaving us all alone

we tried to follow him
but were unsure of the trees and trails
we went slowly

we knew something had happened
when we found his blades in the forest
blackened and alone

he had come
like a force of nature
wrecking our lives
in the name of freedom
freedom from what?

the hollow embers and ashes we found
I didn't build them
those ruins were his story
not mine
never mine

I...was happy
yeah, I was happy
is there something wrong with that?

my parents loved me
I didn't care about anything else

the dragons were bastards
but I understood the game
the moves that could be made

with one flick of a blade
he changed all that
shattered the illusion with a roar of rebellion

now my life is here
in this forest
now he had vanished into the night
leaving me abandoned

leaving everything in shambles!


I examine the sword
curved and round like the moon
it is entrenched in my ruined hearth
no power can help me lift it from the earth
it stands there
the message is clear
a red haze beckons
I understand and nearly roar
I know you, I mutter to myself
I understand what you’re saying
you're bigger than me
you know where I live
and you can do this to me
I don't fear you
you think you are out there hunting me
but it's I who am hunting you
I look at my friends
and suddenly feel lost
what do I do with them?
this isn’t just my story anymore
there is so much they have not seen
or done
will they be safe without me?
will I really feel better seeking revenge?
I don’t know
I am angry and scared
savage and violent
without a clue what to do next
I look at my blackened blades
forever stained with the blood of dragons
they gleam
it had been a while since they feasted
they would do so again

so I run
