Now for a snippet from The Last Dragon:
Hawkyns pressed his fist to his chest. “I hurt already at the thought of leaving ye at the old woman’s. I fear leaving ye with no protection.” He lowered his hand. “I fear more not being able to be with ye every day.”
Hawkyns ran his hand through his hair. “I must leave. I am bound by my vow. That vow steels my resolve to kill that damn dragon.”
“I also hurt at the thought of ye leaving.” Derry’s voice was low. She forced the words from her mouth. “I fear the dragon will best ye and I may not be able to heal ye.” She glanced up to meet his gaze. “Some wounds are for God to heal.”
About the book:
What do dragons, knights and romance have in common? Grab a copy of multi-published author Daryl Devore’s medieval fantasy romance – The Last Dragon and discover the answer.
A sorcerer craving dominance merged with a dragon, the power overwhelmed him causing him to split into three dragons. Demora ruled thought, but was lost in time. Yidithe offered protection, shining like the light of the sun. Ayrradex craved chaos, revelling in destroying souls.
Many knights died, attempting to slay the devil beast. One knight, Prince Hawkyns, did not fear death. He’d lost everything. Away on a mission when Ayrradex attacked his father’s kingdom, Penrythe, Hawkyns returned to find his noble father – feeble and defeated. His wise mother – crazed. His beautiful wife and unborn child - dead. Only a pile of ashes remained for him to bury. He knelt before his King and vowed to slay the devil-beast or be slain.
Derry was born with powers that terrified her parents. They delivered her to a nunnery to be raised in secret. Jathe, a wise sorceress, discovered the young girl and trained her to one day use the secret hidden in her soul.
Legends spoken around campfires hinted the sole way to destroy Ayrradex was when the hearts of a knight and a golden dragon became one. But after a vicious battle with Ayrradex, the golden dragon was thought to be dead.
Can Prince Hawkyns’s bravery and Derry’s powers end the reign of the devil-beast’s terror?
