Demesne’ New Beginnings teaser 2: Jira is almost to the trees when several more dark ones come running out, and she skids along the ground and turns, heading off to the side, trying to run around the side of the cottage when several dark ones come around the corner. She skids to a halt, turns, and flings out a hand and a wall of fire springs up between her and the ones from the trees. Turning, she whips her hand in front of her and a wind blows through those on the side of the cottage, scattering them into the building and off to the side. She dashes between them and heads through the old garden and towards a new tree line. Just before she makes it to the trees, she is struck in the back, a cold tingling washes over her as she stumbles and then falls to the ground. The knapsack leaves her hand and lands next to a tree. She rolls over, looking behind her, and then her hands come up and a ball of fire streaks from them towards the group coming at her. Most scatter, but one stands his ground, and raising a sphere, the…

Demesne’ New Beginnings teaser 3: That night, Jira watches the young man discreetly as she and Brodie are sitting around the campfire. I know I have seen him before, I just can’t place him. She takes a sip from her cup. He is not exactly handsome, but he is cute and so polite. I suppose I could make our return trip faster, maybe jump to the castle now that I know exactly where I am. It just might work this time. But then I would not have the pleasure of his company. She takes another sip and looks around and sees the other man standing slightly away from the campfire like a guard on watch. This Brittle, he is a quiet one, always wary, but relaxed. He moves a lot like Devon. I think it is going to be interesting to find out what his story is … both of their stories, actually. “You are quiet this night, Miss Jira,” Brodie says softly. “Do I trouble you so that you need to constantly watch me?” Jira startles and blushes, thankful for the darkness. “Oh dear, have I been that obvious?” “Not in the least,” he says warmly as he looks…

Demesne’ New Beginning teaser: Guards she thinks, and moving around to avoid being seen, she gets close enough to the camp that she might be able to make out those that are near the fire. She concentrates and her sight returns to normal. She almost gasps out loud as she recognizes those around the fire. Dark ones. Better not hang around here. She shifts her sight back to the grayness and sees other glowing bodies moving slowly in her direction. She carefully and quietly slips back into the deeper darkness and away from the campsite. Skirting the camp, she moves more carefully now and soon comes upon a small cottage and a burned out barn. In the gray of her vision, everything looks cold and unused for quite a while. Oh no! It’s Gretta’s cottage. I am near Haulden. Great! I have to sneak past a whole bunch of bad guys to get to the western entrance of the valley, she thinks to herself as she examines the cottage. Better not stay in the cottage, just in case the dark ones are checking out the buildings. Though they’ll probably just leave this place alone. It shouldn’t have any more interests…

Time for some fantasy with magic, a special hawk and an unusual horse, not to mention the different races of two of the two legged kind.

I might even put another in tomorrow until the whole book is read. mmm thought about that, Don’t think it will happen. Have fun with it Teaser: She looks up at the sound of running footsteps and a child’s words echoing down the hall just before the energetic little girl bursts into her room. “Miss Tera! Miss Tera!” Beth exclaims as she runs in and slides to a stop near her desk. “Miss Tera! Mama says that he is coming, he is coming back!” Beth watches impatiently as Aithera’s eyes glaze over, for she knows that Aithera’s mind is searching elsewhere when she gets that faraway look. Then Aithera’s eyes clear and she smiles down at Beth, who huffs and urges her, “Hurry, Miss Tera, hurry!” With a flare of her skirt, Beth spins and dashes out the door, her words echoing down the hallway. “Miss Jira! Miss Jira! …” Aithera chuckles softly and picks…
