The Lone Unicorn

JENKINS_2019_WB_BANNERIn a time of uncertainty life can have difficulties. Within the Forest of Ferrês lives a powerful being that the gods fear themselves. She holds the power to see the tides of time and experience the many outcomes our choices make. Her name is Esmé, and she is the lone unicorn.

Throughout the world’s creation she was the only one. Many don’t believe she even exists till she shows herself to those deserving. Those who have seen her believe her to be a beautiful elven maiden with a star-shaped birthmark on her forehead. Esmé takes this form because of the elven roots spread far and wide throughout the forest. She also does it to ease the troubled mind of her companion.

You will meet Esmé in my short story “The Assassin’s Prophecy.” But, most importantly she will play her hand throughout my upcoming series, The Legacy of the Silver Ryder. You will get to witness how the gods don’t hold as much sway on the world when she gets involved. Will she change the world by directing the choices of our heroes or will she bring the downfall of Tarzinëa?

Ask the Lone Unicorn your questions. Find out about special abilities, her past, or even her strange grumbly companion. You will only know the answers you seek by asking them.

DarkDeath

JENKINS_2019_DARKDEATH_INTRO

Names DarkDeath and today K.M. is letting me take over for this feature. Normally, I would tend to the pack and try to keep the pups in line. But, I am using this as an excuse to get away. The pups are a pain in the ass and the duties of being the King suck.

What ever you do don’t tell SnowFire. If she finds out I am lagging on the job, she will have my head. She already knows I have been looking for excuses to get away. Love the pups to death but gods above they are little biters. I don’t know how much more my tail can take.

Anyway, I should probably tell you about myself instead of wallowing in self-pity. I’m a kyre, a shape shifting being that takes the form of a wolf. Our kind aren’t like normal wolves. Many of my kind have special abilities while others not so much. I don’t have any ability, but my mate SnowFire does.

SnowFire holds the power over ice and snow. She is a real cold bitch when she wants to be. I hate the snow with a passion, but she is one with it because of her power. I’ve seen her conjure up shards of ice and impale our enemies. Then turn around and create beautiful snowflakes to entertain our pups. Either way, the power she wields is formable.

I rather do the dirty work the hard way, with my claws. Nothing feels better than sinking my nails deep into the body of my enemy. Snow says I get carried away sometimes but who wouldn’t when the bloodlust sets in.

Weakness is not something I can afford since I’m the King of Beasts. The Forest of Ferrês is my home and kingdom. Even if the gods at be don’t want our kind in charge. But, till the day Nµtari comes into my land and takes over—I’m in charge. And, those twin-tailed foxes better stay the hell out. Hate them with a passion if you can’t tell. I would go into detail why but K.M. has a story coming out soon that will explain this to everyone.

Do you have any questions you would like me to answer feel free to comment below? I don’t want to bore you to death, so I plan to keep this post brief. Perhaps, I will stick my head in again sometime soon. I know a few playful stories about the pups you would die to hear.

Tarzinëa

JENKINS_2019_WB_BANNERThe land of Tarzinëa is home to five powerful kingdoms. Each kingdom is made up of different strongholds and creatures a like. The depths of power each wields is adversary, but together they are indestructible. Throughout, times of peace and war these kingdoms have fought and bled by each other’s side. However, in time distrust was born and unity fell beneath the squabbles of old foes. As time distanced them they forgot the power they once obtained and fell back into old habits. Hate filled them and now these kingdoms stand on the brink of collapse.

With a new hero emerging amongst the humans only time will tell if this one person can change the tides of fate. If this one person can save them from themselves and unite the nations under one banner like the first Queen. Will Kero raise the army that will change Tarzinëa’s fate or will they become just a memory.

Tarza ~ Is the land of the humans. At the time of its creation King Rodrik ruled supreme. As time went on, he married Queen Karigan of Zõrron, uniting the two kingdoms as one. The dragon ryders became a stronghold name with Queen Karigan at the front of the ranks. Soon the Varrin was born, a knighthood that united all kingdoms under one banner. This soon created the Empire. But, with every great army and ruler in time they fell. Now waiting to rise with the rightful heir to the forgotten throne.

Vladïmir ~ The land of the elves. Since the dawn of time there were elves. They held the favor of their Goddess Salza. In times of peace they remained closed off from the world keeping to themselves. When change came upon them through the fate of their Prince, they had no choice but to listen to the winds. Now bonded to the dragon ryders they journeyed out into the world and created a partnership with the humans. However, time will show that friendship was weak as everything fell into ruin. As the Empire falls, they turn their backs on the outside world choosing to save themselves from the darkness growing inside the Mountains of Zorric.

Mountains of Tõrrin ~ The dwarven kingdom. A vast land below the mountains exists where the dwarves dwell. They worship the mighty hammer of Kortez their god. Without the god’s blessing they will not join the ranks of battle or bring unity beyond their walls. During the time of peace they grew mighty in strength but fell with the Empire. They still do business with the outside world but despise the elves and distrust the humans immensely.

The Forest of Ferrês ~ The lands of beasts. This world is by far the most secretive of them all. Creatures of all kinds gather within hiding from the world at large. Man has never entered without the blessing of the forest. If they enter by accident, the creatures within will destroy them letting no one leave to tell its secrets. Within, old allies of the first Queen remain but long forgotten as tales of myth. But, when the sword returns they will come to her aid once more.

Zõrron ~ The forgotten kingdom. Many have heard tales of ryders that flew on the backs of dragons. They served all kingdoms of all races. Nothing could touch them till a great evil was born. Then followed the exile that allowed them to become a fairytale. Dragons no longer exist as far as the world without knows. But, there are those that remember and as long as they remember the ryders will always have a home to return too.

COVER REVEAL ~ The Wrath of SnowFire

Today is the day, I will showcase my cover for the next installment of the Tales of Ferrés short story series. I plan to release this short story towards the end of January 31, 2019. “The Wrath of SnowFire” will introduce you to DarkDeath’s mate and the Queen of the forest SnowFire. She is definitely an alpha female you don’t want to mess with when it comes to protecting her pups.

These stories don’t follow a timeline and each can be considered a stand-a-lone. They don’t have to be read in any particular order, so feel free to have fun with it. If you are wanting sneak peeks beside what my flash fiction tales and short stories provide, please consider joining my street team. It is a group of fans, fellow authors and friends that come together to learn about the worlds I create, promote my books and help me along my journey as an author.

Now that I have rambled on forever here is my cover for “The Wrath of SnowFire.”

JENKINS_2018_TWOS_EBOOK_150

Sludge and the Rabbit Girl

“Damn it to hell!” He fumed storming into his office.

I can’t believe that little brat did this. Christophé was red with rage. The nerve of that brat! All he wanted to do was relax in his office and get silence for two seconds from all these screaming kids. Instead, when he opened his office door, he got a pile of sludge on his head.

“What’s wrong, my lord?” Kent said stifling a laugh. “Oh…”

Christophé turned around to look at the little weasel of a man. “Don’t you even think about laughing!” he snapped. He slammed his hands down with force on his desk glaring with a deep fiery hatred reflecting in his eyes.

“Umm…why would I do that?” Kent asked pressing the back of his hand to his mouth trying to stop the oncoming giggles. He failed miserably as the heated glare pierced him from across the room.

“Quit your snickering…get me a damn towel and some clean clothes” he snapped. Christophé threw himself into his chair with a thud. This crud better not ruin my chair or hell will be paid ten-fold.

“Yes, sir!” Kent squealed. The slim built man with his red mage robes dashed from the office as if on fire. I swear the man is like a cat running after a mouse he can never catch.

This is the last straw. If Kero thinks she is going to get away with this prank, she has another thing coming. He walked over to his stacks of books lining his walls of bookcases doing his best not to drip on the carpet. Christophé fingers twitched as he looked for the appropriate binding. Once his hand rested over his spell book with its gold binding, he took it out and flipped through the pages looking for a spell.

“Got it,” he said. “This will be perfect.” A deep chuckle sprung from his throat as he walked over to the balcony. His eyes danced across the land below his terrace, looking out over the horse stables, the small kitchen garden, till his eyes locked on the sparring fields.

He could make out two forms in the distance, bent over each other snickering. There you two are, you little menaces, he thought staring at his granddaughter and her friend Alex. This is the last straw Kero and this time you will get punished.

Christophé looked down at the beautiful handwritten words as he spoke the words of power. “Ana sele raviso elishe.” A loud crack filled the air followed by a clap as he shut the book. Silently he laughed to himself as smoke formed around the two mischievous girls.

A few seconds passed before yelling began and he knew his spell was successful. That will teach the little brat. He watched as the crowd formed around Alex as Kero’s form disappeared. Bending over, the now solo girl picked something up small and fuzzy.

“Oh, how sweet it is to be victorious,” he said turning back around to find Kent walking back into his office. Perfect timing.  

“My lord, I got you a new change of clothing.” The younger mage said as he handed over the garments and the towel to clean himself off.

“Great, now one last thing” he began as Kent arched a blonde eyebrow. “Keep Roseanne in the dark about what just happened.”

“What did you do this time?” Eyes of shock stared back at him. He knows all too well what I will do when pissed off.

“If you’re talking about the rabbit girl,” Christophé sneered. “I had nothing to do with it…” or did I?

He couldn’t help but laugh and enjoy the screaming about Kero being a rabbit. The price some are willing to pay to teach a spoiled princess a lesson. Now just have to think of a suitable punishment for that friend of hers.  

He contemplated what to do about Alex’s hand in the ordeal but the sound of screaming filled his ears. Ah…sweet music. Now if only Hailey was here to squeeze her head off. Hmm…guess there is a use for great-grandchildren.

Fiery Seductress

In this entire castle his sanctuary lived within the racks of books piled upon the hundreds of build it cases and shelving units creating a library masterpiece. It gave him peace and plenty of space to think; the silence was always a welcome companion. The smell of old parchment from thousand year old books filled his nostrils. Christophé smiled sipping at his tea allowing his mind to drift back to a time when life was simpler. The calming aura of peace would have continued if it wasn’t for his beloved wife, Roseanne walking through the door.

She was in a beautiful green dress that made her fiery red hair look vibrant and alive. It was almost like looking into a blazing fire as she walked closer. Her hair wasn’t the part that captured his attention; it was those mysterious green eyes that enslaved him to her every desire. ​God, every time I see her it’s like the first time all over again.

“Sitting next to the fire like always I see,” she said tenderly.

“Enjoying the quiet.” He watched Rose out of the corner of his eye as the tea warmed his mouth. ​What is she up to?

She sat next to him entwining her fingers with his as her legs stretched out across his lap. Christophé could smell roses, ​hmmm… she had been working in her garden. The smell was intoxicating as it awakened parts of his once relaxed body.

“You need to stop worrying about her,” Rose said.

“Worrying about who?” he said trying to be nonchalant. Rose looked at him arching an eyebrow. He leaned closer exalting in her scent. Moments like this he wished she would just stop talking and enjoy his company. ​She always has to worry about something.

“Kerowyné is a strong girl,” she began. “She comes from a strong and powerful bloodline. There is nothing she can’t do.”

Christophé didn’t respond he stared at her watching the firelight dance among her red curls. ​If only you knew what was to come, my dear. Then you would understand why moments like these are best enjoyed.

“I do know one thing, love.”

“Oh, what’s that?” Their eyes met as his hand caressed her tender cheek. His lips brushed her earlobe as he said, “We best make every moment count.”

She turned her face towards him; they embraced one another as his hands wandered along her magnificent frame. They shared one kiss after another as he brought her to the floor and looked into those verdant green eyes. Her smile reflected at him. “Why are you being so friendly, dearest?”

He looked at her contemplating his response, “I suppose it’s those damn roses, my love.” Rose laughed in response and pulled him down on her. He didn’t resist, ​best to leave the worrying to another day.​ Passion consumed them as the night wagered on.

Morning came too soon, he woke to find himself on the library floor wrapped in Rose’s arms. ​I will hate leaving you, love. But, with a war coming Kerowyné is going to need all the help she can get with her training. Christophé snickered to himself. Poor Rikkin he doesn’t realize the handful he has on his hands.

NIGHTMARE OF FILTHAS DENGOTTA

It’s October and I thought I would start the month off with a bang. This flash fiction tale will be featuring the evil cursed villain, Filthas Dengotta. In this tale I will share a bit about his power and the blackness he spreads just by a single touch. Hope you enjoy this tale and helps get you into the Halloween spirit. 🙂


He looked out over the hall. It was centuries since he last seen the sunshine through stainless glass windows. Sometimes I wonder if those times ever existed beyond this hell that Bitch cursed me too! Filthas glared at the images dancing across the floor, bright with their beauty. Wolves, rabbits, horses, soldiers, and beautiful flowers pranced around the room bringing delight and merriment to all that viewed its wonder, except him.

“Ye enjjjoying the sccccenery, me Llllord?” asked a weak voice. Filthas turned to the scrawny boy hovering in the doorway. The lad looked sickly and worn to the bone. Doesn’t sound too bright neither. The lad hesitated then crept his way into the room. He sneered at the lad making him shake in fear.

“The happy animals, they disgust me! What do they have to be happy about? They are just food for my belly.” Filthas crossed his arms contemplating the best way to deal with this unrest. This place is too damn cheary for my taste where is the death and decay? You think the fool Marthred would know this place would infuriate me. Apparently, the imbecile doesn’t know my background too well. I will have to remedy that next time I see him. The sound of the lad’s whimpered response drew him back to the moment at hand “oh…”

“What’s the matter, boy! You like the little animals?” The disgust rang true through his words as he turned his red eyes on the lad. His fiery eyes full of hate watched the lad look longingly at the pictures emulating off the floor, “Yessss.”

A few moments passed in silence as emotions fought for control of his mind. He couldn’t decide if he wanted to destroy the beautiful dwarven glass windows or paint the floor with the lad’s blood. “What’s your name, boy?”

The lad looked up. Filthas watched the color fade from the boys face as he locked eyes with the fires of hell that were his eyes. “Well, you deaf or just plain stupid!” Fear prompted the lad to speak, “Scccottttieee.”

Chuckling Filthas let his skeletal smile scrape across his face. “Well, Scottie how about we have a game of sport? Go catch me a rabbit and I’ll show you a trick of mine.”

Scottie hesitated looking at him with questions written across his face. Filthas found himself intrigued by the young lad. Scottie must have known he couldn’t get out of doing what Filthas asked. “Umm yessss, me Llllord I’ll go fetccch ye a rabbittt.”

Filthas watched in amusement as the fifteen-year-old lad ran out of the room. If only he knew what he was getting himself into. Filthas continued to look around the room. This place needs darkness and blood I believe. He was musing about how he could make this lovely environment more dark and home feeling. The clatter of feet on the floor drew his attention to the door as Scottie came running through.

“I gotttt ye tttthe ra ra rabitttt like ye assssk me Llllord” Between the stammer and the heavy breathing Filthas scolded from the headache the idiot caused. The lad would be better without his tongue wouldn’t cause so much strife with that idiot speech. He pushed past the discomfort the boy’s words caused. “Good. I was wondering if you had the brains enough to catch one.”

Scottie cringed at the insult. Apparently, the little town idiot has a brain to register an insult at least. Filthas pulled off his glove and admired his hand. He always hated looking at himself in the daylight. When the sun hit him he showed his true form, the form of death. Filthas could see the chunks of skin falling off the bone leaving nothing but a bare skeleton behind. “Hand me the rabbit boy,” he ordered.

Scottie looked at his hand and gulped. “Masssster Martttthred sssssaid notttt tttto ttttoucccch ye hannnnd me Lllllord.”

“Oh, did he now,” Filthas growled. “Did the Lord of Idiots tell you not to hand me anything either!” His voice echoed off the stone walls and the innocent bunny thrashed in fear within the small bag Scottie was holding. Scottie shook his head. “Well boy, hand me the damn rabbit!”

Scottie whimpered as he handed Filthas the rabbit. It’s like he knows what will happen without ever witnessing it firsthand. “Tell me Scottie, did Marthred tell you why to fear my touch?” Filthas tilted his head holding the rabbit in his gloved hand watching the fear fill its eyes. These stupid animals know when death is upon them. He watched the boy squirm till his amusement shriveled up like a dead corpse. “Nooo…”

“Adorable little creatures rabbits are,” he mused. “So, sad that they are so fragile.” Filthas took his skeleton hand and gently poked the rabbit on the nose. Just a touch is all it takes for this curse to claim anything within my grasp. Moments passed within a small breath of time till the rabbit screamed a death scream, thrashing till blackness seeped into its veins. Once a beautiful brown fluff of fur now turned into a blackened corpse with the pain of fear and death etched into its face.

“Whatttt yeeee do me Llllord!” Scottie cried.

He laughed hysterically at the boy’s distress. “My touch is death!” Filthas pulled his dagger from its sheath gracing his hip and gutted the rabbit splattering black blood and guts across the floor. His laughter filled the halls as darkness took the light from the room. Even the stupid windows knew better than to challenge his blackened hands.

When the windows that once were bright and beautiful were tainted black by his magic he relaxed. The room became dark as night even though the sun shone bright outside the blacked now decayed windows. He tossed the lifeless rabbit at Scottie’s feet. He found himself extremely amused at the boys tear filled face. “Get out of my site you’re human emotions disgust me!”

“Yessss, me Llllord” Scottie whispered.

It didn’t take long for the boy to scurry out of the room. Awww, the pain and suffering of others is beautiful, it almost makes me want to cry. He yelled after the boy, “stammer in my presence again you imbecile you will face the rabbits fate, Scottieeeee!” The mockery in his voice range through the halls and he laughed with glee.

Sneak Peek

Meisha let loose a battle cry. The ground shook beneath Blake’s feet as he looked on in horror. A creature from Zorric dug itself out from under the obelisk, melting the soil into black goo as it fought for freedom. “Damn! It had to be a shadow wraith.”

Blake drew his sword preparing to charge. Meisha swooped down onto the ground, slamming her torso hard onto the surface. Her jaws flashed as the sun’s last rays gleamed off her white fangs. The wraith lunged, slashing at her underbelly. Fire filled the air as she released blasts upon the creature. Nothing Meisha did seemed to affect it. She lashed at it with her tail, clawed it with her talons, and bit deep into its hide with her teeth. The wraith just kept regenerating and cutting deeper and deeper into her hide.

Don’t Kill the Monk!!!

He sat there next to the lake looking out over the shimmering water. Rikkin found himself waiting longer than he liked. But, he didn’t have much choice in the matter. He had to wait for the appropriate time for his brother to contact him.

The sun rose over the lake marking mid-day. Rikkin stood up and paced to get feeling back into his stiff limbs. “Damn I’m getting too old for this.”

“That’s what being stuck in a rock for 3,000 years does to you!”

Rikkin grunted turning around seeing the reflection of his younger brother looking back at him. He knelt down to get a stronger read on his brother’s location. Roülle looked worse than he did. The poor fool looks dead on his fit. There were shadows under his eyes and dirt smeared a crossed his face. If he looks this bad, I wonder how the monk is faring. “How are the roads treating you little brother?”

“This world sucks! I swear every time I turn around there are bandits or people ruder than hell expecting me to get out of their way. In our time this crap wouldn’t happen…”

Rikkin watched the wild fire blaze to life in his brother’s eyes. He always gets so emotional. “This world has changed since our time amongst it. People have forgotten our kind and don’t show respect to anyone unless they wear the marks of nobility or have wealth.”

“Just be patient and try not to go nuts on anyone,” Rikkin said.

Roülle glared back at him and snapped, “I wouldn’t have to deal with this if I could just shift to the King’s side. But, no… I have to travel with this damn Monk!” The hostility radiating off Roülle created a red glow around his watery reflection.

“Calm yourself you are acting a damn fool.” Roülle snorted in response. If I was there, I would punch him into the abyss and back. He wouldn’t be acting so damn stupid. What do I have to do hold his damn hand because he wants to do everything the easy way?  

“I’ll make no promises.” Roülle turned away, the sound of cracking twigs and rustling in the brush filled the air. The reflection faded for a second as silence took hold. Rikkin gripped his knee waiting to see if his brother would return. Every moment is precious and every second they waste using their magic draws more attention to them. “It’s just the damn Monk, apparently we need to get back on the road.”

He sighed in relief letting the tension fade away. “Be careful and do your best not to do something stupid that gets you killed. Okay?”

A smirk inched its way across his brother’s face. “Like I said Brother, I’ll make no promises. But, if the Monk keeps stopping to help every dang person in need, there will be hell to pay.”

“Remember… “

“Yeah! I no! Don’t kill the Monk,” Roülle snapped.

“You need to keep him alive! He has a purpose in the war to come…”

“I’ll keep him alive! Don’t worry…” Roülle smiled back at him. “Worry about your own mission Rikkin. Last time I checked I didn’t have a headstrong woman to deal with.”

He wasn’t wrong about that Kero was turning out to be a difficult student to train. I don’t know if she is ready for this responsibility, but hopefully with time she will change. Breaking the connection Rikkin left behind his brother and returned to his own task. It was up to him to get Kero ready for the hell this war was bringing and it looked like it was coming faster than expected. “Karigan I pray you picked the right person that is strong enough to carry this giant burden.”
