In Faith

[This story is a teaser for a book that I'm trying to get ready to publish. Only the prologue and chapter one are available to read]

Not every myth is true, but you’d be surprised at just how many are. Over two thousand years ago the Greeks, Vikings, Chinese, and Egyptians had it right. They understood the mythical beings of their regions. However, all belief was lost some time ago. The world began to understand new ways, which were also true, and the past seemed forgotten.

However, as is the circle of life, all that is forgotten is eventually found. In this new era of mythology and life, Theodosia Nightengale seems to get caught up in the middle of everything, or could she herself be the source of it all?

Prologue

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------   

Not every myth is true, but you’d be surprised at just how many are. Over two thousand years ago the Greeks, Vikings, Chinese, and Egyptians had it right. They understood the mythical beings of their regions. However, all belief was lost some time ago. The world began to understand new ways, which were also true, and the past seemed forgotten.

Mythical creatures of all regions were disguised at first, but as soon as humans lost belief in them, they could not be seen. However, those who believed in these creatures could see them. Due to the risk of being seen or somehow exposed, the immortal and mortal mythical creatures of the world went into hiding, somewhere where they could live in their own worlds.

They divided by regions, and all went their separate ways. The forest creatures were the first to find their new home, and that new home  just so happened to be Northern California, USA, in a little town called Faith, which is surrounded by thick Red Wood Forest and ocean.

The immortal forest mythical creatures wanted this land for themselves, and threw many mortal forest mythical creatures of course. This left creatures scattered at the outskirts of the forest with no directions to Faith. This event happened sometime in the early 1700s.

Faith became a home to humans, mortal, and immortal creatures and was an interesting place to live. The best part was that the humans didn’t even know what was going on. Their belief in these creatures had died years ago, and their minds could not comprehend these creatures. Therefore, few could actually see them.

    As more and more creatures slowly made their way to Faith, the types of creatures in this region grew even more diverse. Vampires, Werewolves, Shapeshifters, Nymphs, they all began to grow in numbers.

In some parts of the forest, that were still technically part of the city Faith, elvish communities flourished. These creature were all so different. However, they all had one thing in common...They were all creatures of the forest.
