Sample Text From the A Way With Dragons:
The icy breeze trickled out of the woods, flowed down towards the River Usk and then on towards the small town of Abergavenny. The solitary old farm-house in its desolate winter garden shivered and huddled deeper into itself. An owl, hungry, cold and thoroughly disgruntled, hooted mournfully. It was the witching hour.
Inside, in her attic bedroom, Cary snuggled deeper under the covers. She was dreaming. It was summer and she and Cash were cooling off in the shallows at the bottom of the garden. The sun was hot, the sky blue, the puffy clouds purest white and it was altogether delightful. A waft of warm air tickled her nose. She brushed at it absently, refusing to open her eyes.
“Go away, Cash,” she murmured. “I just want to be quiet for a moment.”
The waft came again, and this time Cary sneezed. Still she refused to open her eyes. “Stop it,” she said crossly, and again: “Do stop it.”
“Not until you wake up,” a voice said, a voice that shouldn’t be in her dream, a strange voice, one that she didn’t know, speaking a language she could barely understand. <End of page 1>
