It was a lot to take in. The fact that I was trapped in some domain created by Eryn, by the Demon that possessed her. Gazing upon the hundreds of demonic minions that stood at her beck and call, I couldn’t help but wonder how long this place had been in hiding. ‘Since we had
A dark, cloudy sky greeted me as I opened my eyes. I couldn’t move, even to tilt my head. All I could tell was the ground upon my back, my body paralyzed and my vision swimming. I felt pain. Enough so to understand something dreadful had happened to me, but a wave of warmth and
“My Queen, we can find no trace of the Chancellor anywhere. Neither have we found remnants of the Mad Empress or Lamps Magellan.” The solemn expression that Ludmila carried spread throughout the throne room. But for Queen Katalina, she had to hide her tears.
