Prologue

The night sky was clear revealing a sheet of bright shining stars that engulfed the heavens in a million lights like swarms of fireflies dancing in an endless dark ocean. The shine of the moon cast the valley below in a gentle glow, making it possible to walk through the canopy of trees with no need for extra light. Above the moon lit valley rose a great cliff overlooking the night scenery, the cliff strutted out a giant natural stone wall and it made the perfect platform to observe the land beneath.

On the rock platform stood a great beast, it had the appearance rather like a large wolf. Its amber eyes reflected the moon light and its thick tan fur rustled in the breeze, it stood over the height of a big horse and its strong muscular legs made the beast look brutal and ready to take on any challenge that lay in its way.

A silent female figure walked up beside the beast from the forest behind and stood at its side her hand resting on its sturdy shoulder.

“It is time.” She spoke in a rich soothing voice. At those words the beast stepped forward to the edge of the cliff and gave a deep chilling howl, the howl echoed over the valley and  continued on in a spine rattling sound that seemed to tremor the earth below.

Off in the distance almost out of sight a flame burst into the sky and disappeared almost as quickly as it came.
