Chapter Ten – Risa

Chapter Ten – Risa

  Chapter Ten Risa     This bed is too soft. I snuggle against the pillow, it’s like my head is floating on a cloud. I’ve never felt something so nice before. I bolt upright. What happened to me? I cry out as the memories hit me like a punch. I tried to save Rebekah, and Kaldratos attacked me. He… he cut off my arm. Instinctively I raise my hand to my left hand to my face, expecting to see…

Chapter Nine – Kaldratos

  Chapter Nine Kaldratos   “He tried to kill her!” I scream at him. Octavian looks at me with shock and horror. “He tried to murder her, and so I’ll fucking slaughter him and everyone he damn well loves!” I scan my eyes over the soldiers with me, four hundred Valkyrion Knights, my personal guard, in the transport.

If we go into this battle without any real plan in place, we’ll all die!” Perhaps it is his wish to prove his worth in his new position,…

Chapter Six – Kaldratos

Chapter Six Kaldratos   A crowd of bickering crows yells around me. Catherina sits to my left, her head leaning against her fist. Her eyes and ears miss nothing. Seven times she has interjected in the bickering, ending a discussion with a sentence, or merely a steeled gaze. The Council hall is filled with the Upper Nobility, or close family members who are here to represent the heads of their Houses. I represent myself, but as Champion of Her Majesty,…
