Chapter One – Ilyan

First Hop

“Ilyan!” Risha’s voice cut through the explosion that shattered the building to my left. The ancient structure answered with a groan that threatened to send the building down on top of us all.
“Move!” Risha, The Skȓítek woman who had led the survivors from Edmund’s raid, who now served as my second, screamed again from where she fought alongside the others we were trapped with, even though it was becoming increasingly obvious that there was no way we could fight them off alone.
That wouldn’t stop me from trying.
Yells and shouts of fear increased over the already rampant noise of battle, the building heaving as the screams escalated, the attacks right along with it. More dirt, more dust, more debris fell over us, ripples of fear tensing through me at what was about to happen. I shoved it all aside, letting Risha’s yell alert me to the much broader danger—my fathers men who were rushing me- moments from destroying me.
With one flash of magic, I killed the two men before me, their power fading to nothing as their destruction became nothing more than shadows. Dodging the attack at my back, my attackers powerful blast flew into the building that groaned loudly in warning.
Shards of brick continued to pour over us like hail, burning sparks of magic singeing my clothes and hair. I expected the building to tip with the impact, that powerful explosion being the final nail. However, it stayed, the loud Trpaslíks’ laughter ringing in my ears as I turned to face them, my jaw a hard line of anger.
