  1. Chapter 1: Awakening

    "Where are you taking us anyway?" Nyla asked as she struggled to free the skirt of her dress from the clutches of a bristle bush.

    "It's not far now," Jarius assured her, taking a sip from the battered canteen that hung from his shoulder, "It'll be worth it, I promise."

    "This isn't like those 'dragon eggs' you found that were just a bunch of rocks, is it?" Darian asked, stopping to cut the branches that had snagged his cousin's ...

    The train hissed into the station.

The air smelled perfumed like late blooming wildflowers and a cooling breeze rustled the lush leaves of the aspen and birch in the surrounding woods.
