Teaser Tuesday: The Heiress and The Drite

Cover Art by Jason Pedersen

This is a fairly short one that takes place during the big battle.  Feel free to click on the cover and get the full book for $2.99.  🙂

Having left the main army to search for Luke, Kira and Fizzle vault over the rooftops to avoid the creatures below. Whenever the heiress needs to leap over a street, she tosses the club end of her weapon into the air and lets the drite swing her to safety. Coming to where they last saw the chimera, the pair are about to climb down when they feel a wave of heat hit them from behind. The building lurches to the side and half of it melts from contact with Nyx and the Baron, both of whom are covered in flames. Unaware of Kira and Fizzle’s presence, the combatants continue battering each other with fists and spells while inside the crumbling structure. Elemental blasts punch through the roof, which is becoming more dust than solid stone with every blow. Driven to the corner, the unlucky pair look for an easy escape, but they are already tilting high into the air. With no other choice, Kira hoists herself onto the ledge and jumps over the street while Fizzle swoops to catch her weapon.

The drite’s mouth is nearly on the chain when Nyx is knocked through a wall with a wind spell that whips the heiress away from her friend. She can already see the other building starting to collapse from the attack as the enraged channeler returns to the sky. Tossing her kusari-gama over her shoulder, she prays that Fizzle is still there to catch her. Another blast of destructive magic hits the street and sends chunks of rocks bouncing in every direction, the damage causing all of the houses to tumble into the smoking sinkhole. A distant voice tells Kira that the tiny dragon has been blown out of reach, the wave of force knocking him two blocks over and her high into the air. Spotting a crumbling ledge, she swings her weapon and stretches her body as far as she can. The sickle catches the stone and she sails toward the wall at a speed that makes her close her eyes. The heiress yelps when someone catches her by the waist and she abruptly feels like she is dangling upside down.
