About the author …

 

Chris Perkins is a new author from Canberra,
ACT, who has spent ten years attempting various degrees at Canberra universities
but found the going very difficult. He graduated with a Diploma of Event
Management from the Canberra Institute of Technology but has decided to use his
creative talents to write fantasy for children to encourage them to read more.

 

His imagination and storytelling were
acknowledged by fellow students at university classes and are really evident in
this book. If you like magical animals and good triumphing over evil, this is
for you.

Chapter One

– SAMPLE

 

O

n a distant planet far away
lived a princess called Loren who had dark red hair and pinkish white skin. She
always woke up with the sun coming through her window every morning. Today was
an exceptional day, which made her decide to explore the countryside.

So the princess went to the
main dining hall downstairs to have breakfast with the king and queen on this
fine morning. Their names were King Gregory and Queen Christine. For this
morning’s breakfast, she had blue eggs with a side of fruit.

After she finished
breakfast, she went upstairs to change into her normal clothes; a fluffy white
blouse with cream pants, so that she could ride her horse or walk in the
countryside.

Immediately after she got
changed into her proper attire, she went downstairs and out the castle doors to
her stable where her horse, Lightning, was waiting for her with its silver mane
and white coat glistening in the sunlight.

The princess mounted the
horse, grabbed the reins and rode the horse out of the stable, through the gate
in the wall, over the drawbridge and into the blue grass of the countryside,
which was part of the kingdom.

Loren was riding along with
Lightning in the countryside  when all of
a sudden, she saw what she thought was a magical creature—part tiger, part
falcon and part puma. It was indeed a magical creature, which had the power to
freeze or set fire to its enemies. Such powers would normally have made the
princess scared but she was not scared at all.

The reason for her not being
scared was that this was a talking magical animal who could understand her language as well as
the other animals.

The princess started up a
conversation with this animal, whose name turned out to be Trilon. She asked
Trilon what other creatures there were and how many good and evil magical
animals there were in the country. Trilon said there were some good beasts named
Albatross and Skydoor.

“However, there are some
evil beasts, which have the power to destroy and make good animals turn evil.
Their names are Oracles, Pumagrass, Windsky—which have the power to change
feelings from happy to angry and they also have fire coming out of their mouths
and wings. There are also Firetigers which fire lightning bolts as well as
another evil beast named Treestorm, which is a female who can change voices and
fire snowstorms from her mouth. The last evil beast is Windstorm, which can
create tornados that cause magical hits of damage to the good magical beasts
without moving.”

Then Trilon asked the
princess whether she needed any extra help along her journey.

The princess answered,
“Yes.” She did not know how dangerous it would be travelling if there were evil,
magical beasts out on the hills. So both of them went and continued their
journey through the countryside.
