The First Covenant (Elements #1) Taster

Fire

Here’s an excerpt from my upcoming fantasy novel, The First Covenant

The general’s eyes closed to narrow slits and he leaned forward in the saddle to inspect Tar’s face. All of the muscles in Tar’s arm tensed and he fixed his own gaze on a vein pulsing beneath the skin on the general’s neck. In less time than it took to draw breath, Tar’s spiked hand could rip through the rider’s throat.

They were both distracted by a sudden burst of light behind the general. A soldier scrambled in amongst his comrades, arms flailing wildly around him. Fire leapt up the back of his tunic and was dancing around his head like a terrible halo.

“The lady has fire.” He screamed. “She’s burning us.”

General Kaan hefted his lance, spurred his horse across the square and plunged the long point into the man’s chest. Crimson and gold flames danced across wooden roofs to the north and the air was filled with the sounds of splitting beams and cries of agony.

“Fall back to the barracks.” The general shouted.

One of the smugglers grabbed Tar’s arm and tried to drag him after the retreating army, but the old pirate’s eyes remained transfixed by the slowly blackening figure on the ground in front of him. Patches of cloth glowed red-hot on his back.

“It’s white-eyes.” He said. “She’s here.”

  1. Sounds like I jumped straight into the action!, or perhaps this is set later in the novel. In any case, I am already excited. Perhaps I am being misled by the names, but I love novels based on Asia.
