Welcome to the Flight of the Draykes.

Flight of the Draykes is book 1 of the 20 planned books. The word ambitious doesn't do it justice because this is literally the culmination of all my daydreaming over the past few years and all the emotions that I have felt are a result of creating this world.

Book 1 presents to you the world of Protos.

Protos is gigantic and surrounded by treacherous seas that keep the people within its borders. History says it's for their salvation but the inhabitants beg to differ as different races were trapped along with many ferocious beasts that were the stuff of the people's nightmares.

But they adapted. Then they fought. Then they died.

But the next person took up their arms and fought again until they gained ground, one inch at a time.

Alas, many races perished. The ones who remained diminished. But Humanity grew stronger and stronger.

1000 years have passed and the beasts are almost no more. But even so, more ferocious beasts have dyed the world in red.

for the next 7000 years, a new age of war dawned! But the opponent this time was humanity itself. For humanity no longer had any enemies! So they fought each other and they conquered and they destroyed.

In the chaos, a dragon landed on the shores of what would become the Kingdom of Leon. With a spear forged of brilliant sapphire, the dragon fought and bled across the lands and founded House Drayke.

From west to east, House Drayke expanded the frontiers of the territory of Leon. Always at the forefront of every conflict and always the first one to bleed. House Drayke was perhaps the reason why the Kingdom of Leon was founded. House Drayke is definitely the reason the Kingdom of Leon has not fallen.

For the Hagarians hunger after the Leonids. But the Draykes were a hard bone to chew and as such peace was finally obtained.

A fragile peace.

War is always looming. Treachery is always in the background scheming. Honor and loyalty are at the forefront defending.

In this tumultuous time, comes the story of Faustus Drayke.

Some people are fated to be important.

Faustus Drayke was not.

The second heir to the noble House of Drayke.

His destiny is what decides the footprint that he leaves and whether history will immortalize him.

For that is what the prophecy says.

The prophecy that a young girl with no powers has spoken.

That Faustus Drayke will be an immortal.

For her, he will fulfill it.

For the world, he better fulfill it.

Table of Contents

Prologue - You are...

A firm hello to you, the one reading this novel.

First of all, I really appreciate it and second of all, you're amazing.

The latter part is because I know how hard it is to sift through rolling piles of updates in order to find one gem among them.

I don't know if my novel is a gem, but for stopping by and reading, thank you very much.

I am only going to improve from this point on, so if the quality is a little lacking at the start - please do stay and watch it climb ever higher especially with your help and input.

That's enough out of me now, please do enjoy The Flight of the Draykes.

p.s this prologue is largely unedited from the first time that I wrote it. I realize it might be bad but it's a tribute to the writer that I was when I freshly started.

Chapter 1 - The Draykes

These chapters are very rough since they were part of the first draft that I could not bear to re-write. But nonetheless, if there are any glaring issues in readability, please do let me know and I
will grit my teeth and get to it!

The info dumps will also cease after the next chapter or at least will be dumped in a way that you can enjoy thoroughly!

Happy reading!

Chapter 4 - The Accolade (Part 2)

I don't know about you, but when I wrote this chapter - especially the battle part - my blood was boiling and I couldn't sit and write for at least an hour.

I hope you feel the same way and if you do, let me know! It's nice to know that I have compatriots.

Happy reading and stay safe!

Chapter 5 - Courage!

Getting feedback is akin to a parched man getting drinking water in the desert for me.

Why being a gold-rank is hard!

I quite enjoyed this chapter but I miss engaging with you, the one who reads this book.

So don't hesitate to drop a comment or a review. Worry not about my feelings, for I am quite thick-skinned and rational!

Happy reading to you!
