Dar’kind Promises – Secret Fifteen

There isn’t a direct mention of the Dragon Races in this Dar’kind Promises story. There is a reference from Verucca’s POV. She was old when the royal twins were born.

“Drab robes swirled around the crone’s  legs while she stretched her arms over her head. In recent years movement without pain became harder and harder. She’d been old when the royal twins were born and they were men, grown now. She ignored her creaking joints and made grand sweeping motions in the air, accompanied by incantations in an ancient language.”

Who were the royal twins she’s talking about? One day I will reveal the secret of their birth.

Many generations ago, a class division erupted resulting in the Arach human clan becoming the ruling power and the Wyrm clan the response driven muscle behind the power. The joint distinction faded through the passage of time to become Wyrmarach a bastardization pronounced Were March of the classic WyrmArach world. The significance of the joined name is lost on the inhabitants.

Their world is separated from ours by a wide gulf of difference protected by the veil. In their world order reigns under the guidance of an autocratic matriarch with a very specific view of acceptable moral citizenry.  A Queen whose mind set is so oppressive her own sons were banished as an embarrassment to her rule.

Ethan and Caleb Monroe, the prince heirs, are in a word, unusual. They live among us in exile, charged with enforcing that the barrier between our worlds remains intact.

A messiah is needed to usher in a new era of Wyrmarach understanding and tolerance. Where can salvation be found? The curtain between dimensions is thinning tempting some to look to Earth Dimension for answers. Wouldn’t it be unusual if salvation rested in the hands of a somewhat ordinary human named Cathwren, who turns out to not be very ordinary at all.
