Shadow Witch – The Butterfly Princess

December 27, 2017 / no comments

BANRION THE SHADOW WITCH

“Find the traitor. Find the mouse. Kill them,” Banrion shouted. “The rest of you go to Golden Hill. Now!”

The rooks swarmed around their mistress, then burst skyward.

(excerpt from The Butterfly Princess)

THE STORY

Rose is a strong-willed but troubled young girl. Her home, the Kingdom of Golden Hill, has lived under a dark cloud since her beloved brother, the crown prince James, ran away. His abrupt departure left a once tight-knit family in tatters. Now, two years on, Rose is in grave danger. Banrion, the Shadow Witch has waited a long time to strike and on Rose’s birthday, the opportunity arrives. Rose is cursed, turned into a butterfly and brought to Banrion’s distant lair.

Banrion has a cruel game in mind: Rose is released and must get home before the setting of that night’s full moon to reverse the spell. If Rose fails, she will remain a butterfly, and lose her memories.

Once Rose’s desperate quest begins, many creatures come forward to help — even a few Banrion would never suspect. An ambitious plan is hatched utilizing other cursed victims, known as changelings. Their mission: to serve as Rose’s guides across the many dangerous miles. A powerful bond is forged between Rose and her newfound friends, redefining for her the true meaning of family.

But, even with their help, nothing is certain, the road is long and full of twists and surprises. Banrion has many eyes and she doesn’t play fair.

The Vampire Bat – The Butterfly Princess

KARALIS

‘Karalis, the Vampire Bat King’

The cave’s damp stone walls arched upwards. Amongst the giant stalactites, a colony of vampire bats blanketed the ceiling. They crawled over other each other, in concert, like one living organism.

“I smell a human.” A high pitched voice came from the roiling masses.

Something Wicked This Way Comes – The Butterfly Princess

THE MERCHANT

‘The Wicked Merchant’

The filthy white mule’s nose practically dragged along the ground. An unusual collection of cages hung from the wobbly wagon’s canvas tent, banging into each other. An old woman dressed in filthy rags with a rook perched on her shoulder bounced along on the wagon’s bench. She surrendered the slightest of nods, then snapped the reins.

Henchmen – The Butterfly Princess

THREE HENCHMENfull-tbp-henchman-promo-watermark

“Do you smell that?” Fischer skidded to a halt, took several deep breaths, then scrambled back behind a boulder. “Shhhh! We have company.”

Two cave trolls sat on the ground outside the ravine.

“Oh boy,” Rose whispered. “My brother and I call them Fart Trolls.”

“Fart Trolls. That’s a good one.” Fischer pressed close against the rock, his long ears flat against his back. “They come north of the gorge when Banrion calls them.”

Rose’s antennae vibrated as adrenaline coursed through her body. “Wow. They’re enormous. There’s an ogre, too.”

A shorter, but beefier ogre circled the cave trolls, grumbling loudly, “I hate dealing with you filthy creatures. Don’t know how Mistress puts up with it.”

“They’re here because of you, Princess,” Fischer said. “They’re the witch’s muscle.”

Cave Troll – The Butterfly Princess

THE CAVE TROLL

The Cave Troll

“Looky here.” A cave troll stepped from the shadows, his massive hand crashing down. “A little white bunny.” A hungry grin revealed uneven rows of sharp teeth. The over-sized incisors glistened with drool. The beast held its catch by the scruff of the neck and released a deep, guttural laugh.

A fog of troll spittle rained down.

THE ROAD AHEAD

‘The Road Ahead’

The mouth of the tunnel opened on a small ledge. Boris sat, staring at the distant lights of Golden Hill. The others squeezed in on either side. “I wonder if I lived there,” he said, softly.

Two Rooks – The Butterfly Princess

PHILLY AND SHU

‘Two Rooks’

A voice filled Philly’s head, but it wasn’t his mistress’s. It wasn’t painful like hers, but if he listened, it could be just as dangerous.

Promise me. Shu has a good heart, but he isn’t strong like you or me. You must protect him.

His wife’s request repeated in his head.

Protect Shu. Keep him safe.

Steady as a drum beat.

KUDA THE TREE TROLL

'Kuda the tree troll'

The creature’s stout body twisted like the trunk of a bonsai tree. The head hung below hunched shoulders covered with flaky scales. Long spindly arms rested on knobby knees. Unlike their relatives, tree trolls were renowned for their gentle disposition, intelligence, and relatively small size. They preferred privacy but tolerated the inevitable intrusions by other creatures seeking their wisdom.

THE DRAGON’S EGG

The Dragon’s Egg

“Look,” I breathed. A crack appeared in the egg.

Another crack— then another.

The egg wobbled. A chip of the egg’s shell came off.

A coal-black eye appeared at the hole. It inspected the new world, blinked, then moved away from the crack. The egg shuttered. Another chip broke free. A claw poked through. Then Golden Hill’s first dragon popped out of its egg.

ELDUR THE CROCODILE

'Eldur'

“Ruckus? That’s what you call this? You said this crocodile would help me. I’d have more luck with a Fart Troll.” Rose hovered over the crocodile’s long toothy snout and kicked him in the nose. “You’re a brute.”

Eldur squinted, following her flitting wings. “I’m a crocodile. You sat on my log,” he grumbled.

Nouka shrugged as if to say, well, he is a crocodile. “It’s just a huge misunderstanding, Princess.”
