"How can something so beautiful be so dangerous?” "The danger is in its beauty.” Lyzaria is a dragon shifter, one of the last of her kind. Dragons were thought to have gone extinct after the werewolves hunted them for decades. One day she is running from a group of Hunters, and is forced to escape into the forest. She never knew why her father told her to stay away from the mysterious beauty, but she soon realized her mistake.View More
I let out a growl as the wolf continues to yell at me. I leap off of the back of the warrior’s dragon. My dress flies around me as I fall through the air.I land in a silent crouch, just inside the edge of the burning forest. With a wave of my hand the flames subside long enough for me to walk through the trees and into the clearing of wolves.My Fire Snake hisses and spits beside me, swaying side to side. The wolves look at me with eyes full of fear, all except for one; the Werewolf King.“Lyza!” he yells again, and I growl angrily.“How do you know my name?” I snarl. He takes a step forward and my finger twitches. The snake hisses loudly and slithers closer. He leaps backwards in shock.“You’re my mate Lyza! You saved my life; you saved my sister’s life!” he yells. I growl.
I wake up to a loud knocking at my bedroom door. I sit up with a groan.“Come in,” I say. I look up and see one of my guards.“Alpha, the messenger from the Mountains is back,” he informs me. The urgency in his voice makes me hurriedly follow him through the house.He leads me to my office where he stands guard outside the door. I walk in to see my Beta beside a ragged-looking wolf.His hair is sticking up in multiple directions, there are dark circles under his eyes, and he is covered in dirt. His shoulders are slumped, and he looks exhausted.“I apologize Alpha for my condition, I could not stop and what I have to tell you is too important to wait until morning,” he says, his voice hoarse.“Get him some water,” my Beta tells the guard outside.
I can’t feel anything. My entire body is numb. My memories are distorted too, all I remember is my father telling me that we have to leave soon, and then the fire.Something presses around my neck and I realize I am being dragged to the ground by a chain. A red dragon is leading me away from the black clouds of ash.I try to fly towards my uncle, but nothing moves. It’s like my body is paralyzed.After several minutes we reach the ground. I collapse onto the black dirt, my eyes darting around in panic. A dozen unfamiliar faces surround me. One of them sticks a needle into the underside of my neck and I feel a cold liquid run through my veins. My eyelids start to fall, and I pass out moments later.***The ashes are so deep, they completely cover my feet. Black and white flecks drift in the wind down from the volcanoes.
My head snaps up at the faint rumbling noise. I search the horizon in the direction it came from and my face falls.A bright red flame shoots through the sky, on the other side of the Zhyden mountains. Then suddenly a searing white pain shoots through my skull and I collapse onto the forest floor.My Beta rushes over, shaking my shoulder but I can’t hear a word he is saying. I can only focus on a single coherent thought as everything goes black.Lyza.***I open my eyes to someone calling my name. Angel’s face hovers over me, full of concern. The agony is gone now, replaced by a strange numbness.“Daerius are you alright?” My sister asks softly.I sit up, looking around my room in confusion. “What happened? All I remember is a red flare . . .” I trail off, confused and
I hug my knees tighter to my chest, hissing in pain. It hurts to breathe, and it hurts to move.My head aches, and bright light is irritating. I pass out every few hours, only to wake up a few minutes later.I haven’t seen anyone since a dragon brought me a clean pair of clothes, just after they dragged me in here.My uncle is even more powerful than I remember, even Mitalonys is still in pain. And when he is injured to the point of feeling pain, neither of us can heal.I close my eyes, focusing on the moment I had with Daerius when he marked me. It seems like it was years ago.I miss him so much,I tell my dragon.Since he marked you, you are going to miss him a lot more. In a few weeks it’s going to be painful to even think of him,Mitalonys says.I internally groan, my f
My arms curl tighter around her, my hand running through her hair. She suddenly seems so small, so fragile.I listen as her heartbeat and breathing slows. She is asleep in minutes.“Wow, the dragon doesn’t look so vicious now,” Angel says, walking out of the castle.“What do you want Angel?” I ask in annoyance. She raises her hands in surrender.“Oh, so now I need a reason to talk to my brother?” She scoffs.“You do when I’m with my mate,” I growl lowly.She purses her lips. “Fine. I wanted to know when we are leaving,” she says. I sigh, my head falling against the stone wall.“I don’t know, I can’t leave Lyza. And this is her home, I can’t make her leave that. I don’t know what to do,”
“Does this mean we are accepting the mating bond?” Daerius asks. I sigh, biting my lip in thought.“I guess but there is one problem. You are going to go back to your pack, and I will be here. How is that going to work?” I ask.“Why are you staying here?” He sounds surprised and I raise an eyebrow at him.“Because this is my home. I didn’t know before that anyone survived the massive attack years ago. But now I havefamily, I’m not going to throw that all away afteryearsof being completely alone.”“Well that puts us in a difficult position,” he growls, roughly running a hand through his hair.“Maybe not, I mean now I can shift. If you can get the order for the extermination of dragons to be removed, then I can come to visit you eve
I can’t stop staring at Kailo’s mangled, bloody body. His eyes are still open, staring straight ahead.He looks like a boy again, like the boy I loved and vowed to spend eternity with. He used to be kind, strong, gentle, and would look at me as if I were the most important person in the world.And today I found out he was going to kill me for my throne. Years of affection and devotion, all for nothing.“Lyza? Are you there?” I hear Daerius’ voice say. I turn my head, still under Talon’s control. I see him standing at the edge of the dirt bowl I’m in. My head is level with his.“Listen I’m going to help you shift back, but first you need to come over here,” he says. My body moves forward but instead of presenting my neck to Daerius like I wanted, Talon has me knocking Daerius into the ring.
A hoarse yell fills my ears, and it takes me a moment before I realize it’s my own. All I could see were shadows and now all I can see is Lyza falling through the sky.Her wing has a huge tear in it, and she is covered in a glistening black liquid, blood. I feel my heart drop as I notice she is not moving, and her eyes are closed as she falls.I am standing, but my legs give out underneath me as her body hits the earth. The ground shakes and a plume of dust floats over us.Kailo soars down from the clouds, his wings beating away the cloud of dirt. I see he is missing an eye and half of his face is badly burned.“Oh shit, I don’t think she’s getting up,” someone whispers behind me.Then flames suddenly burst from within the dirt cloud. I jump back, narrowly avoiding getting my eyebrows burned off.
