Hi, I'm looking for an old fantasy book I read once like 10 years ago. Tried googling it but I just get the wrong books. It was about this guy who was a rider atop a flying animal. He was part of a military I think, as they had a base somewhere remote. The base was attacked though, by other people who also had those flying animals. The leader of the attackers was also looking for him specifically, even thugh he wasn't that important. The series also had magic, and some had more potential in it than others, though all could use basic ones. I clearly remember "shard" being a magic word used to make your hand not let go of your sword. The fantasy book was also part of a series. I know this isn't a lot to go on, but does this sound familliar to anyone at all?

hey guys, I was wondering if you could help me, I am doing a paper on disguised embassies. There is a book called Talking to the enemy by G.R. Berridge. Is there any way I can find this book in electronic form to download for free? Or are there any other book that could help me with my paper? Any advice will help, thank you.

I've been sitting on a fantasy-genre idea since, what, like 2012? but I finally got around to writing a detailed summary thing for it... So far I'm almost at 4 pages and I'm not through with the backdrop of the story I want to tell. I like to imagine that other fantasy authors like J.K. Rowling or J.R.R. Tolkien felt like total loser-nerds (not the cool ones) as they were writing their stories... I have to at this point just to convince myself to keep going.

Tolkien held lessons in Oxford wearing chainmail. I honestly doubt that he felt that way.

Also, the whole nerds-are-bad-thingie is over. Has been for quite a while, really.

Just write it and get someone who won't lie to critique it. It will probably suck if it's your first time writing, but just listen to the critiques and learn and improve. Your writing skill will most likely be bad, because that's how everyone starts out, but your story might be good. Just gotta write and improve until you're ready

Have you tried actually writing any of it yet? Might help.

Hey folks, I'm working on world building for a project of mine, but I'm kinda stuck. See, my MC is a person who has kind of upset the balance of the world, by declaring himself a prince. The obstacle is, princes are chosen, not born. Each race is to have one prince, the source of their magic. Magic is worked in this world by channeling the life force of reality, from which everyone is made and to which all return, into a physical form. The elves, who worship their ancestors, call up the dead with these means. The nimble and dextrous goblins use it to power steel golems and wondrous machines. The human tribes of the north, survivalists and wildmen, can call guardians from the ice and snow. My obstacle is choosing a fourth prince. As it goes so far: the elven Prince of Bones, the human Prince of Frost, and the goblin Prince of Iron. My MC, a wandering mongrel(mix breed without magic) has taken the title of Prince of Nothing. Any suggestions for an additional race, and what they might command?

Additional note, not really important, but a bit of fluff, the princes have no names. They give up their individual identity when they claim the throne.

Countless mindless drones of an insect race driven like ants to expand and assimilate from their shadowy homeland, weak but seemingly endless waves of chitinous horrors washing over the land. It is theorised they are controlled by another, far greater. The Prince of Doom.

That sounds really really awesome, perhaps for a later villain. I'm kind of trying to do a thing where the races (currently) coexist, and the arrival of Prince of Nothing sets the tipping point. Ooh, sudden inspiration. There are only the three races, but the MC's appearance causes a political unrest that causes tensions, mixed with a sudden concern over mysterious disappearances and violence, misattributed to the alleged followers of said Prince, which is where the Prince of Vermin (your concept) comes in, a forgotten enemy controlling a mindless hoard. And thus, a prince with neither crown nor castle leads the three races in a battle for their world. Sorry if it's a little scatter brained, I brainstormed all of this while typing this message.

Amber eyes

I watched Natasha die a while ago. Vets told me it was most likely a coyote that attacked her and got her to the back corner of my yard. She was 9.
I got out there only in time to scare it away.

3:07 in the morning about.

It was so real, more real than anything i've ever experienced, I remember every little rending detail. The sound she was making a few seconds after I scared whatever it was away. How time came to a painful stop when I approached her, and how my breath stuck and went stale in my lungs.


Sometimes you hear the term "Try to be there" and there are few moments where you really know what it feels like to actually be there.

I remember the patch of fur on her claw, and the patch of fur she was missing on her thigh.How everything froze.
How she was laying on her side in the corner against the stone, and for a split second, maybe more maybe less how I believed, knew that she would be okay.
I remember as I approached and saw her barely moving, that she wouldn't. How she was using every ounce of strength she had left just to inhale and the sound she made. How it felt like a bat to the stomach when she desperately, grotesquely tried to move her back legs and how wrong her body felt when I touched her.

I remember the three indifferent black spiders crawling near her.

The blood and dirt on her tongue, her fucking beautiful dilated amber eyes.

I remember feeling absolutely helpless as her breathing stopped and a second later how her head fell to the ground, like I was experiencing a scene from a fucking movie.

I remember the way the doctor and assistant stood around the table with me silently, like they hadn't done the same thing a thousand times before, like they cared or knew how it felt.

And the way I was crushing the mints in my pocket as the receptionist told me it would be 80 bucks to bury her.

I KNEW I would be coming home, tired, and like the creatures of habit we are.. I am..expecting her to be there. Like I predicted, I thought I heard her meow and almost called, I went to my back door out of habit and for some reason I expected her to come running, like always. I caught myself the next day from opening the door.

I remember those beautiful amber eyes.

Anyone read the throne of glass series, and if so, your thoughts?

Mistborn trilogy was pretty damn good. I was wary of getting it because I'd heard a lot of people say the writer isn't very good and the only reason to read his stuff is he has some good magic systems, but I gotta say that's a load o shit - The story, storytelling, and characters were all great. I loved it. I can't say the prose itself was remarkable, but it wasn't bad. Overall definitely very good and well worth reading, would recommend.
