     “I found her lying in one of the old Sharan portals a few days after the attack on your home. I did my best to make her comfortable, but the Warm Heal can only do so much and I’m no surgeon.”
    He poked the fire, seemingly arranging his thoughts.
    “She told me what happened to you and your sisters. That she had been trying to reach the Elemental Knights. But most of the portal network in Oria was destroyed during the war of The Fallen. We got as far south as we could but in the end she just ran out of strength. She spoke about you three a lot in the last few…”
    He motioned with his head towards her hand.
    “You know; a look like that would make a lot of people nervous and I know what that dagger can go.”
    Kerri realized she had picked up the dagger involuntarily. As if the sudden uneasy feeling coming over her wanted the securi

    “You know?” Her soul blurted.
    Kerri didn’t bother to respond. It was obvious he knew as did their mother; probably.
    “You think she knew as well?”
    The voice in Kerri’s head startled her until she remembered that here she and her soul were practically one person again. There was probably some strange interactions going on she was unaware of.
    “Mother knew as well didn’t she?”
    Arkaine nodded.
    “We always knew you might be in danger, it was why she chose to live in that village. You were isolated from the world.”
    Kerri thought about that for a second and then pushed ahead.
    “It’s because we’re new souls isn’t it?”
    “Partially but…”

     Kerri stirred to wakefulness and jerked her eyes open to dazzling daylight; memories of the attempted rape flooding her mind. She didn’t dwell on them, she didn’t want to remember.
Unfortunately the night’s events had also taken their toll on her body and that wouldn’t let her forget. Her right hand was stiff, the inside of her head throbbed and her rib cage seemed heavy, the air wheezing from her lungs. Thankfully who ever saved her had propped her up to sleep on her left side. Her head on a pillow of some type to stop her collar biting into her neck. It took her a few moments to register that the thing keeping her upright was itself breathing.
     Alarmed, she shuffled away tugging the blanket covering her and felt what was obviously a person move. She froze daring not look up; she wasn’t ready to face them, not yet. She didn’t know whether to hope or be scared.

Hi all,

Welcome to the page I’m using to host content from the novel I am slowly working on titled ‘First Breath’ and its associated world building project.

Most of the content will be artwork links and images of characters I’ve commissioned from various artists. If you like any of the pictures please post a comment, the artists appreciate it.

Occasionally I’ll also post draft chapters from the novel but I warn you the writing can be atrocious at times. *hangs head in shame*.

First Breath is a dark fantasy novel (violence, nudity, scenes of a disturbing nature etc.) so content will be filtered due to DA’s literature policy. It also contains numerous tropes as I find they are great writing tools (see TV Tropes if you don’t value your time).

Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy the art.


First Breath, Kerrilandra, Ethren Kincaid and other associated characters are copyright to G Riches.
Please do not use them with out permission.
