Snippet from The Last Dragon

Hawkyns jumped from his mount and grabbed the reins of Derry’s horse. In a low voice, he spoke and stroked the horse’s neck. The beast whinnied but settled. Hawkyns led him to where his steed waited.

Derry pushed herself up to standing. He was at her side in two strides. “Are ye hurt?” His blue eyes were wide with worry.

“No.” She attempted to brush the wet leaves from her arms. “I’m shaken, but I will be fine.”

He scooped her up into his arms, carried her to his horse and helped her mount. He tied her horse’s reins to his saddle then climbed up behind her. With urgency, he nudged his horse along the path. A small barn came into view.

What do dragons, knights and romance have in common? Grab a copy of multi-published author Daryl Devore’s medieval fantasy romance – The Last Dragon and discover the answer.

A sorcerer craving dominance merged with a dragon, the power overwhelmed him causing him to split into three dragons. Demora ruled thought, but was lost in time. Yidithe offered protection, shining like the light of the sun. Ayrradex craved chaos, revelling in destroying souls.

Many knights died, attempting to slay the devil beast. One knight, Prince Hawkyns, did not fear death. He’d lost everything. Away on a mission when Ayrradex attacked his father’s kingdom, Penrythe, Hawkyns returned to find his noble father – feeble and defeated. His wise mother – crazed. His beautiful wife and unborn child - dead. Only a pile of ashes remained for him to bury. He knelt before his King and vowed to slay the devil-beast or be slain.

Derry was born with powers that terrified her parents. They delivered her to a nunnery to be raised in secret. Jathe, a wise sorceress, discovered the young girl and trained her to one day use the secret hidden in her soul.

Legends spoken around campfires hinted the sole way to destroy Ayrradex was when the hearts of a knight and a golden dragon became one. But after a vicious battle with Ayrradex, the golden dragon was thought to be dead.

Can Prince Hawkyns’s bravery and Derry’s powers end the reign of the devil-beast’s terror?
