"Not darkness, not light, perhaps something in between, and is claimed by the darkness...as theirs. Though being saved by the light, that which is saved must in turn save the world..."

 

Darshun Luthais has never experienced the Nasharin Frenzy—the unbending will to challenge a stronger opponent, no matter the cost. He doesn’t know what he will transform into, has never bonded with an elemental crystal and has never seen any of the unearthly creatures his father talks about. Even though he’s an infant in Nasharin years, his life consists of nothing but constant training, striving to unlock the sleeping power his so-called accursed race is born with.

 

But all that changes when he is pursued by a Dream Assassin in the dead of night. What he witnesses will forever change his outlook on life and lead him on a quest only the strongest can complete.

 

Excerpt:

Arrows flew past Darshun at every moment. He rode side-to-side around trees, trying to shake their aim, but the Draconians were still gaining ground. Soon, they were right to his sides, two on his left and two on his right. He took a dagger from his girdle, threw it at one to his left, striking it between the eyes.

The other Draconian, now enraged, shot an arrow at his head.

He ducked while the arrow passed over and killed one to his right. The last two slowed their pace and rode behind him, attempting to shoot his back.

Up ahead, he saw a large branch that hung low. He grabbed it, slid off his stallion, swung over the branch and using both of his legs he kicked one of the Draconians on its back. It flew from its horse, and smashed into a tree, shattering its cranium. Darshun dropped to the ground and unsheathed his sword. “Come on,” he taunted. “No more running.”

The last Draconian slid from its horse, drew his weapon and charged.

They met with a hard clash of steel and began exchanging blows. With every offense Darshun led, the Draconian countered. He was good, far better than Darshun expected. In fact, seeing a lizard-like creature, with such massive bodily structures move so fast was impressive, to say the least.

Backing Darshun up with a series of heavy blows, he brought down his sword one final time against Darshun’s, knocked the blade from his hands, and kicked him under the chin.

Darshun's mouth slammed shut, his head jolted up, and he fell upon his back, a bit dazed, with a slight headache.

The creature, grinning and snarling, withdrew his weapon and extended his long venomous claws. “The one who took the crystal, tell me his name, his homeland, and I’ll sheer your intestines quickly.”

Darshun smirked, reached for his weapon and stood.

The lizard creature stilled and seemed to be wondering about the sudden confidence his opponent showed. Unexpectedly, a flash of red light shone, blinding the Draconian for a moment. When his sight returned, he saw his opponent engulfed in red flames and holding a burning red sword. His hair glowed, his eyes were shining; even his skin glistened like a finely polished fire-opal gem—glorious. His mouth dropped open. “...A Nasharin? It’s not possible. Your kind—are extinct!”

Grinning, Darshun taunted, “Are we?”

The Draconian swung its claws, going for Darshun’s throat.  Swiftly dodging, Darshun drove his sword through the enemy's chest, tearing it out the left side of his upper torso, the fiery blade disintegrating the heart.

Then, just as Darshun thought he would be in the clear, there came another one rushing through the trees on horseback, enraged, holding a battle-axe high. “So, he wants to play too…” Darshun seethed, his gaze fierce. He extended a hand glowing like the coals of a long-heated fire and shot a thick stream of flame at the pursuing enemy.

It covered him completely while the horse he rode tossed his roasting carcass to the ground.

“It’s dangerous to tempt fire.” Darshun smiled as the thing burned up at his feet. Yes, while in the power of Transformation conceit filled his mind. Fighting, power and strength were enormous traits of a Nasharin Being.
