I'm currently sharing excerpts from Children Of The Mist the second book in
The Destiny Trilogy. This is set on Niflheim, a planet close to the heart of Jess, who features in the first book. The heroine is one of her closest friends, Tamarith.
Thanks so much to everyone who has been following this series, and left comments xx
HERE As usual I have used some creative punctuation, not in the published version, in order to comply with the sentence count.
Vidarh is in a perilous situation, capsized in an underground river and caught in the current. He desperately needs his guide, Tamarith, to send him the co-ordinates of her location.
Tamarith! Into his head came a shimmering picture of mountains and a snowy plain beyond, like the one he had recently crossed. A path before the mouth of a cave wound down the declivity to the plain, he closed his eyes and forced himself to concentrate on the image, while trying to keep his head above the water.
The mountains and the plain solidified in his mind. He saw a group of people gathered at the entrance to the cave, halfway down the craggy slope with four sturdy ponies stood tethered a short distance away.
Vidarh struck a barrage of water with a force that winded him.Myriad rainbow colours flashed before his eyes, and for a nanosecond, he sped through a vortex of black nothingness, sucked through the eye of a raging whirlwind. He hit hard ground and rolled over onto his side. A few moments passed before he could catch his breath and scramble to his feet. He stood in embarrassment, aware of the slightly shocked expressions on the faces of the three people gathered before him.
