his mind. The dragonrider of the white Quartz Planet felt Naderenya's
bond, Sekally, stir beside him. The two of them had grown closer over the
past months while the eggs their dragons had produced had been hardening
on the sands of Lantessama Isle.

moments until it setteled down again. From behind the curtain of sand, the
silhouette of a small female dragoness became visible. The hatchling was
almost completely black, with just a tad of silver woven into her wings.

Avarya looked around the Rapture and felt instantly intimidated by the
amount of people around. She was a quiet and thoughtful dragoness who took
her time to form an opinion. And the Rapture and Healing Den Ballroom, the

and waiting until she was ready to face the people. The dragons knew of
her arrival but kept quiet since she meant no harm. She was small enough
