Myth and Magic Challenge – The Results

I would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who participated in my challenge. I’ve loved reading each and every one of your stories and I think that everyone has done a spectacular job, which made choosing the winners very hard. It’s taken me four days to decide, but I’ve finally settled on the winners of first place (one person), second place (two people) and third place (four people). So, without further ado, here are the results:

{*First Place*}

Prize: If I’m not already, I’ll become your fan and read 5 pieces of your work. Your winning entry will be advertised on my profile and I’ll recommend your work to other people.

And the winner is:

Guitarplayer~with~Atlantis

Can Airla, a young girl, save Atlantis from the fate that will surely destroy it?

Guitarplayer’s beautiful prose, lovable characters and breathtaking descriptions have earned her first place in the competition. Her chosen category was the ‘Atlantis myth’ and she has written a captivating story, well researched and steeped in mystery and magic. Well done!

{*Second Place*}

Prize: If I’m not already, I’ll become your fan and read 3 pieces of your work. Your entry will be advertised on my profile.

And the winners are:

WordSpeak~with~Fire in the Night

In order to relinquish Kievan Rus from the terror of fire dragon shapeshifter and evil Lord Turgarin, the hero Aleksey, a seventeen-year old boy, will have to do what he least believes he can, venture to his truest soul upon his quest for the Golden Bird of Legend and decide his own fate, with the fate of the world.

Although this story isn’t yet finished, I was swept away by the magnificent chapters that were posted. WordSpeak utilises his incredible writing ability to enthral the reader through his eloquent narrative and rich description, weaving a valiant tale of Slavic and Baltic mythology. Bravo!

and

Drizzle~with~Moonstrum

The darkest hour approaches, the fall of everything right, honorable and just, the gods are going to die. The only light amongst the dark lies with two individuals, Diana; the goddess of the Hunt and the moon, and Drusus; a seemingly ordinary boy with an extraordinary destiny. Whose side are you on?

Drizzle spins a yarn of epic proportions in his classical tale of good vs. evil. His action-packed narrative grabs the reader from line one and keeps them engrossed throughout. His creative and imaginative use of Roman mythology has earned him joint second place. Congratulations!

{*Third Place*}

Prize: If not already, I’ll become your fan and read 1 piece of your work.

And the winners are:

madaGDarko~with~The Wind Goddess

You might be surprised to learn that this is madaGDarko’s first novel – I certainly was. Her elegant style and imaginative story from African myth and legend have merited her joint third place. Immerse yourself in the world of Oluchi, the wind goddess of Asaman!

Booklover9216~with~Golden Flower

This is a heart-stopping and thrilling story of an Aztec girl named Anacanoa, and her love, Tecocol. Despite its short length, Booklover9216’s gripping tale had me on the edge of my seat from the first word to the very last. Great work!

Star4668~with~His Black Wings

Star4668’s vivid description and intriguing characters make this memorable tale of the battle between Heaven and Hell, with the angels and demons of Christian mythology as foot soldiers, one compelling read, truly worthy of winning a position in the challenge. Good job!

and

Niau~with~Kalki of Kali Yuga

Through another classic battle of good and evil, Niau faultlessly intertwines the technological world of the future with the magical world of Hindu mythology. Her attention to detail, exciting action scenes and endearing main character all combine to leave the reader spellbound. Marvellous!

Congratulations to all the winners and well done to all the entrants! I’ll get to dispensing the prizes A.S.A.P. but it may take a little while since there are seven winners whose work I need to read. Please bear with me :) Once again, thank you so much for entering my challenge!
