Excerpt from Ravynwyng Chronicles Universe Volume 1: The Beginning

‘I had to call in quite a few favors to speak with you like this. Why don’t you wear the ring like I told you?’ The female voice sounded annoyed.

Ravyn spun about, seeing no one yet surprised by the view: A garden of night-blooming flowers shimmering in the moonlight. ‘Who are you? Show yourself!’

The air wavered before her and a raven surrounded by a silver glow appeared. ‘You needn’t shout!’

‘Who are you? Where is this place?’

‘We’re in your mind,’ she said. ‘My name is Cara and I’m supposed to be your raven companion.’

Ravyn plopped on the soft grass head in her hands. ‘I’ve gone off the deep end.’

‘Don’t be silly, you aren’t going crazy.’ Cara landed beside Ravyn, head tilted. ‘I was supposed to bond with you after your car accident, but a jackass had the ring.’

Ravyn stared at the bird ‘What the hell is that supposed to mean? Did you send me those dreams?’

‘The dreams are part of who and what you are. It’s a family legacy. Your mother had them as have other members of your family dating back hundreds of years.’

‘Did you know my parents?’

‘Yes. Their deaths were unexpected and more than suspicious. Several others knew your parents and you need to find them. You are a member of a unique group and it’s time you start your real work.’

‘I’m a writer and an owner of a used bookstore.’

‘Please don’t argue. You’re more than an author. The journals will explain what’s going on. As will the others when you find them. Don’t delay; you and those you care about are in danger. Those on the other side are not above committing murder to further their goals.’

‘There’s a simple way to end the danger, I’ll burn the journals and destroy the disk and ring.’

The bird shook her head. ‘You can no more do that than you can stop writing, Ravyn,’ she said. ‘If your parents had lived, they would have explained the situation to you. Without their guidance, you have limited options. You need to read the journals sent to you.’

‘Is Jennie really in danger?’

‘Yes. So are your friends.’

‘Suppose I believe what you’re saying…’ she paused, ‘… how can I figure out what the runes mean? Or, translate the writing in those journals? I’m not a scholar.’

‘The runes you have seen in your dreams are part of the key. Keep a journal of your dreams, particularly the ones concerning the runes and of me.’ Cara moved to Ravyn’s shoulder. ‘Once you wear the ring, you will see much more of me.’

The area around Ravyn wavered. ‘Wait! Who are the people trying to stop me?’

‘Read the journals, Ravyn. Many answers lie in them.’

Ravyn woke, face covered in sweat. After a glance at Jennie, she crawled out of bed and headed for the office. She grabbed a notebook and wrote everything she remembered from the dream. Finished, she gathered her thoughts to record the other strange dreams she had.

When she read what she wrote, Ravyn she shook her head. This is nuts! She started to tear out the sheets. That bird said there were others who’d stop at nothing to achieve their goals. So that means someone out there believes in this. Frustrated, Ravyn tossed the notebook on the desk. She grabbed her cigarettes and the panic button for the alarm and headed for the back door. “I need fresh air.”
