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.
