Dragon Fury: The Beginning

In Alezae, forty years back, a storm came, but it wasn't the undying blizzard. It was the being within who was to blame. She ventured to this place in search of something, rushing through the cold
snow and harsh wind. She took what didn't belong to her and watched as the world fell apart. This one event resulted in chaos for years to come.

A great beginning to your story, it's very well written and descriptive, giving the reader a great picture of the story's world. I'll be sure to read more, I'm intrigued!

Thank you :) I'm glad you thought so.

The beginning part to show why the world crumbled is excellent. It remains me of one of my favourite games ever Final Fantasy 7, where the main character enters a temple for a black orb that can summon the most devastation to the world, and when he takes it, the temple begins to shake and it destroys itself, because it was meant to be that the one who took it can never get out. I give you massive props there. You detail in describing how each region of Kaynika was affected when she took The Celestial Void is amazing, and it gave rich imagery of why the war lasted twenty years. It is a beautiful reason for why the war happened.

Kella is an excellent storyteller, and I like how the story switches from actual scenes to the story being told by Kella. It's a clever way of switching POV without switching between first and third. I like that the young dragon is interested in the story, like a pupil being told about the legends of the past. I for one know how much preparation this story took, and the way you are doing it is outstanding. Kaynika has some much lore to tell, and I love presenting it in book form, while we also see actual scenes of what happened. This is going to be a magical story :)

Thank you so much, Dexter! :D I haven't placed much Final Fantasy, unlike my dad, but the ones I did play, I enjoyed. That sounds like a great scene that resembles the one I've created here. I'm glad you liked how I set this out. Since I'm not much of a first-person writer, I chose this approach and wasn't sure how it would turn out since the main story is still in third. This is merely the beginning. The next chapter has much more of my world and I'm so excited :D I wondered before I started writing this, what a good reason would be for a war to happen. Throughout the thinking, it changed a few times.
Kella is one of the mains of this story and she is an important piece. She's also an awesome character. This wouldn't be complete without her, haha. Of course, I had to give my dragons character. He is just as important, and you'll see how they actually met in future chapters :D
Thank you so much for reading and commenting :)

This was a pretty neat chapter! So, is Kella our main character? Regardless, I find her pretty cool already. Girl ended a darn war, and keeps the peace as the current ruler! Dunno why, but powerful female characters have always been my favorite kinds of characters to both craft, and read about. Anyways, since she started writing there at the end, will the majority of the story be about her role in the war? Or will it just serve as a background event? Just thinking about where things will go is getting me pumped for the rest!

Now, onto the intro. Working backwards through the chapter with this comment for some reason. Some winged girl drew an ancient sword, and the land was ravaged by war for twenty years following this event. Caused some kind of global scale cataclysm too. Celestial Void? Well gee, I don't think she should have pulled it at all.

But what are we gonna see next? Guess I'll have to wait until next time! Looking forward to the next one; be sure to let me know when it goes live!

Hahaha, well, Kella is the main character for about three chapters, then for the next three, it's another character, then for the last two it's four. I've laid this out in a way where it makes much more sense. Then that's the end of book 1, Dragon Fury, then, when I come up with another backstory in my planet, Kaynika, I will also put it here in this same novel. Kella is one playing role in this story, there are others, you just have to wait and see, haha. I'm glad it's making you think though, it's making me even more excited :) Celestial Void is a sword of light and dark. It has much more backstory which will be revealed later. Thank you so much for reading and commenting :)

So I really appreciated he start of this chapter- sorry it was just a wee bit confusing though. I wasn't quite aware that the girl was looking for an entrance. But yeah, I actually feel like this chapter would've served better as a prologue, only bc you get a good overview of the world's history and a main player in the peace making- Kella.
Otherwise, great jobs with the action and descriptions as always, Shada. :)

This is the prologue of my story, Dragon Fury. Basically, this novel is going to have multiple stories within it. This was just the beginning of my first story in the novel. That's why I titled the chapter the way I did, with Dragon Fury, as the story name, then, The Beginning, as the chapter name. I'm sorry that it confused you. I'll edit it to make it better, but I'm glad you liked it anyway. :)

Sun, December 17th, 2017 3:02pm


wow, what to say tat hasn't been already been said? what i'm going to say has probably all been said, but i'll say it anyways! lol
The descriptions were great s always, keeping my attention all the way through to the end. the characters were kept a bit vague, which liked, just giving away enough to get a small sense of who they are, but kept mysterious enough to want to know more. i'm pretty excited to read on as you post. great work Shada :D

Mon, December 18th, 2017 8:00am


Thank you so much, I'm glad you liked it :) the next chapter is when the story really takes off :)

Mon, December 18th, 2017 12:16am


I really enjoy reading your book. For those of us not well-versed on all thing Fantasy, your description made it so easy to follow along. I like the idea of going on a journey with Kella as she fill the empty pages of the book. Another great chapter, Shada. Please keep me updated.

Tue, December 26th, 2017 11:01pm


Thank you so much, Islebabe. I'm happy you thought that. It means a lot :) I will gladly keep you updated :D

Tue, December 26th, 2017 6:12pm


Wow! I was captivated from start to finish and left wanting more! You are well on your way to becoming a master story teller my friend. This was epic and I’m chomping at the bit for more. Great job!!

Thank you so much :) I'm glad you liked this chapter :D

Pulling that sword probably wasn't the best idea in the world O_o This is a really good start! Your descriptions are very well done, especially at the beginning. You built the suspense well, and I like how you explained a bit about the kingdoms in this chapter in a manner that didn't seem out of place; it kept to the flow of the story. I'd suggest maybe to vary the sentence length a bit; a mixture of long and short sentences help to build and abate tension, which seems to be quite important in this story. The change in POV at the end was well done, and you left it off at a good place, leaving the reader wondering just who this Ballator is. Good job; keep writing! :) ~smircle

Thank you so much :) I am glad you liked my chapter, and I see what you mean about sentence lengths. It is important to vary them depending in the pace and tension, I just struggle at doing that for some reason, haha. I need to work on it :) I'm happy you thought nothing seemed out of place and that it was well done. Thank you for reading and commenting :)

Great descriptions, and a good start.
I think my dragons have a lot to learn from those in your kingdom! :)

Sat, March 3rd, 2018 11:25am


Haha, thank you :) I'm glad you think so. I'm a huge dragon person, so this first story has a few :)

So as soon as I started reading, I was drawn in by the structure of your sentences and the great detail you put it into it. It is so easy to envision your world like that and I'm kinda jealous since it's a skill I'm trying to work on. After reading the prologue, I was quite surprised by what happened to the world. It makes sense I suppose since they were at war for such a long time. Even though she wasn't physically in it, I was happy at the mention of Ruby and If Kella finds her as inspiration, I'm sure I will come to like her as well. Is Kella the MC? I can't wait to see the power of the legendary blade. I don't have anything bad to say about this chapter except that it was once again well done. The only thing I would have mentioned as already been talked about on the icomments. This was a good chapter and it did its job because I want more.

Sun, March 11th, 2018 4:04pm


Thank you so much :) War is a horrible thing, it takes its toll on the world and the citizens who live there. Ruby is known as an influential person, but nobody ever sees her, so what she is like in person can be quite different to what people perceive her as. In this first story, Kella is one of the MC's. The others come at a later date. I'm glad you liked this chapter too, and that you can envision my world. I take a lot of time writing and editing, so it's nice to have it noticed :)

pen in motion

It's very good shada! Ruby is my favorite character too. I wonder what happened to her, what feast will Elinsire have without her? Will the citizens still fall in love or live fearlessly without her? I'm bound to read more :)

Mon, March 12th, 2018 4:31pm


The world wouldn't be the same without the Guardian's, that's for sure. They live in secrecy, only showing when the world is in dire need of their assistance. I'm happy you're enjoying this so far :)

Mon, March 12th, 2018 11:58am


Oooh, I like this chapter. The history contained in its words, and how the war began. But what did she mean by 'my citizens still don't know what really happened'? The imagery in your writing is fantastic.

Thu, April 5th, 2018 2:42am


That you will find out :) thank you for your kind words, haha

I must admit I'm not the biggest fan of long descriptions, so don't listen to me. As I thought the description were a bit too long. But don't listen to that

It was exciting that a winged creature stole the Celestial Void. And the consequences. That was actually a hook, or at least a near hook. Gonna read on

Sat, April 21st, 2018 6:17am


I know you're not overly big on long descriptions, but I'm huge on descriptions. I'm a very visual person, and my writing is affected by that. Everyone is different though, and that's fine :)

Kossettes Novellettes Being saved

So far im enjoying the dive back into your world mlady :)
At the beginning it did take a bit for me to realize that the girl was looking for an entrance but i know i dont pay much attention while reading. The descriptions really make my mond wander. But honestly your writing is full of a certain artistry to the setting so i programed myself to actually read it differently. All in all I love the story i missed your writing style soooooo much im just happy i get to see it again :)

Im actually giddy like i have this huge smile on my face hahahaha

Ill be exclusively going through this. I dont have many criticisms so sorry if this comment isnt really constructive. Ill try to be a bit more constructive and leave some critiques in later chapters. Riggt now im just enjoying myself

With love


Your # 1 fan

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyy, my number one fan! Hahahaha.
Thank you for reading this :) how'd you program yourself to read it differently? Haha. I'm happy you're back though, and enjoyed this chapter :D

Sun, May 13th, 2018 10:48pm


Pretty sure I can't say anything else that has already been said but yeah, this was a great beginning to a book. It's written very and the descriptions are just... Awesome, they really do a good job at giving us a visual on your world. Is thst how it's said? I don't know but what I'm trying to say is you're very descriptive and I like it. I'll be sure to read more.

Wed, May 30th, 2018 5:26pm


Thank you :) I'm happy you like my descriptions :D thank you so much for reading this :)

Wed, May 30th, 2018 11:53am


I really loved this chapter, Shada! I'm appreciating the descriptive style you use, it's very easy to envision what you try to depict with your words, and I'm very curious as to who the Ballator is! Will be reading on :)

Sun, June 24th, 2018 10:56am


Thank you so much, Trish. I'm happy you are liking it so far :)
