2 Works in Rayla & Tiadrin (The Dragon Prince)
"Newborn cries fill the room. Loud and infuriated. After life inside her mother’s womb, the summer evening’s air feels cold. The tiny infant kicks her legs out in protest, shivering. She can’t smell her mother anymore and the warm, gentle arms that had held her only moments before are gone, replaced by unfamiliar but experienced hands that are firm and not so delicate with her treatment."
Tales from the Sivergrove, little key moments in Rayla's life that shaped her from her birth and into a young, untested assassin.
For as long as Rayla could remember, her parents had spent their lives behind enemy lines, under deep cover in a terrifying magical world.
The last thing she expected was to see that world herself.
