Prologue

 

12000 BC

 

 

The trees that survived were young. Much of the
talks and whispers in the forest were carried by wind. Today, its
silence spoke volumes of the loss of the forest,
especially the death of the Old
Wood.


Qihaman may have dreamt of his tunnels,
but he had failed to warn us of the destruction of my home and the
deaths of my brothers and sisters,” a voice accused from behind
her.


Neither did he predict his death at the
hands of my father’s people. Even those who see what will come to
pass, cannot foresee everything,” the girl replied, surveying the
open sky and the devastation before her.

“Your kind’s insatiable thirst for power has
caused this war. How long will it take before it consumes us all?”
The rasp of a sword being unsheathed was deafening in the
quiet.

She willed herself to stay still. The urge
to flee was powerful that she dug her heels into the hard packed
earth and squeezed her eyes shut. She waited for the Devata to
strike her down.

The breeze shifted, taking away the acrid
smell of burnt wood and flesh from her. In its place was the scent
of sunshine and of the forest before the Great Fire. She would take
this final memory to her death.

The sword whistled as it made its downward
slash. The sound of metal striking against metal, however, was
unexpected that she jumped in surprise. Apart from that, the rustle
of leaves was the only indication of the arrival of another
Devata.


Cease, Pellinor,” the voice
commanded.

It was the deep rumble of it that the girl’s
head whipped to the side, coming face-to-face with a Devarian
noble.


Nothing good will come of this, with her
blood on your hands,” he continued. “Sheath your weapon before our
allies learn of your foolishness.”

“Move aside, Kelor-run. She is no friend to
Devatas. I would be doing everyone a favor…”

A telltale glimmer at the peak of the
mountains caught her eye.


They’re coming,” she breathed. She whirled
to the two Devatas, one trying to kill her and the other defending
her, and repeated her words. Both felt the urgency in her voice.
The noble used his Glamour to disappear. Her would-be assassin, on
the other hand, was still visible when the low hum of her father’s
inventions reached their ears. Convinced, he reluctantly lowered
his sword and vanished.

She returned her gaze overhead. A fleet of
Dragon-like machines with enough fire power to eradicate the forest
and Merleina from the map dotted the sky. Her father had sent his
elite to finish what they started when they torched the Forest
Folk’s home. They would only stop when they realize she was in
harm’s way.

With all the dignity she could muster, she
stepped forward to an open area. The Drogun riders landed a few
feet from her. Two riders alighted from their vehicles. They bowed
to their waist and addressed her respectfully: “Lady Alena.”

Questions raced through her mind; each
clamoring for answers, most of them about her father.

“Where is my brother? He leads this force,
does he not?” Alena could not sense her brother among the
riders.

The two men stared at her in surprise. The
first to recover was the senior among the group, who said: “Your
brother succeeded the late king twelve days past, my
lady.”

Pain lanced through her heart. The Rituvan
king, her father, had died and she had been the last to know. He
was at the peak of his health the last she saw him. “Who?”

“A Merleinan spy slipped poison in his drink.
Your brother captured the traitor and had the man confess his
crime.”

“Were there witnesses during the
confession?”

“No, my lady.” The riders were confused where
the questions were leading.

“Did he discover the motive?”

The answer was another negative. In a fit
of rage, her brother had killed the spy. Then, he formed an
alliance with the Zertans to secure their kingdom’s
safety.

Rualdor was not a man who allowed his
emotions to overrule his judgment. He would not be so careless in
interrogating a prisoner. He was hiding something from his men. To
Alena’s mind, her brother – half-brother had chosen to ally himself
with the enemy to obtain more military power. The Devata. Pellinor.
She could just imagine the smug look in his face at being proven
right, if he could hear her thoughts.
