Okay, so everyone seems to have been enjoying Ena, and I thought that I'd do something a little different this week. I'd share some bits from Return of the Crown, which is my first published novel. I thought you all might like to see how Ena's friendship with Ravyn began. To sort of set the scene, Ravyn's raft is in need of repairs, and she's landed on Draconis Island, where's she's made a sort of makeshift camp...
A scream woke Ravyn with a start; she rubbed her arms trying to chase away the shivers. She wiped at her eyes, thinking she’d dreamt it, and then the anguished cry ripped through the air again, so she grabbed her things and rushed into the shadows.
A huge shape flashed in front of the trees, casting shadow over the entire campsite. A monstrous scarlet dragon crashed down in the camp, scattering bits of embers across the sand. Its huge scaly head swiveled left and right, sniffing and growling all the while. It pounced on the raft, snapping the mast like a twig. Ravyn watched in wide-eyed horror as it ripped the sail free of the mast, the ropes snapping like string. A quick blast of fire from its smoking jaws turned everything into a raging bonfire, and the wood crackled and sparked, feeding the hungry flames.
