In the medieval times, there was an immortal that was the perceived scourge who rivaled the Black Death plague in the Renaissance.. Chorlisr Remmik, a Protector from the Ktaldeik (Tal-DEEK) had to defend the village against the eternal. He had to use witchcraft in order to damage him.
The immortal, Gavis, was just sitting by a fire with his eternal mate in a cottage outside the village when Chorlisr attacked them without provocation.

Worse, she tempts his beast, a complication he definitely doesn’t need. Not with a traitor in his Aerie and one in his delegation. Can he rein in control long enough to salvage his mission? Does he even want to? They say a dragon’s mate is the pinnacle of what it means to love…what of a dragon’s slave?
