“A chill cascaded down Elaina’s spine. Sventock could track their prey for weeks. If they were thirty kilometers away, Master Crevan might have hours or a day, depending on how quickly they were traveling.” Dragon Warriors

A sventock charged from the forest with one of Elaina’s arrows already in its neck. Three arrows pierced the hide. An enormous crash shook the forest, making Elaina’s heart freeze in terror. The sventock was down, but five others were still charging, flinging snow and mud into the air as they tore through the forest.Dragon Warriors

“Master Crevan swiftly finished wrapping the bandage around Ranvir’s arm then strode to Elaina. His face paled. ‘She has an infection. Kiku, I saw several thyliani flowers on our way here, about a hundred meters away. Havard, go with her . . .’” Dragon Warriors

“Elaina glanced at Svilgt Tydun’s arm where a mesmerizing scar curved around then turned sharply, weaving around his forearm. It almost looked like a thyliani flower.” Southern Alliance

The Dragon Egg Cave

The Dragon Cave

“In the mountains, on the other side of the island, the revgiln rested in their eggs, hopeful of a new life. The last chime from a recorder in the cave cleared their memories, leaving the revgiln to rediscover who and what they were, then the recorder disintegrated, leaving behind no evidence of advanced technology.” Flight to Bern Village

This is where Elaina first meets Davu.

“Tvuna led Elaina through the living room and down a hallway to a simply furnished bedroom. . . Elaina groggily gazed around the room, spotting a small table, chair, dresser, wardrobe and a bed with only a mattress. Everything was clean, except for occasional dust scattered across the floor, noticeable in the dim light creeping in from a window.” Flight to Bern Village

Elaina’s Room is bedroom 4.

Map of Peace Island

“The trail Ani and Larissa traveled on looped back to the castle. Few people saw a need to travel further into the forest, but Ani wasn’t going to return. Between bushes and tall trees Ani and Larissa wove, remaining hidden like jittery rabbits scrambling away from a hunter’s eye. Ani pushed the horse harder. Hunger pains nagged at her stomach, but Ani didn’t dare stop. She had to get further away from Glanton. She was not going to miss her chance to escape. Ani didn’t know where she was going, but she was beyond the castle wall for the first time in her life and that was all that mattered to her.” Flight to Bern Village
