For this blogfest I have to describe a setting that gives my readers a sense of who a character from one of my books is. For more info about the blogfest, click on the picture above.
I've chosen to share a scene from "The Crystor" and the character is Octavion. This is from Kira's point of view as she enters his lair. Enjoy!
As he loosened his grip, she gave in and walked freely by his side. They’d only gone a few feet when they passed several large boulders, stopping at the cave entrance. His lair, she thought to herself. It made perfect sense, now that she knew about the curse that left him with the heart of a wild cat. Of course, he would call it that.
With the light of the sun shining through the opening, Kira could make out more of the cave’s contents. In addition to the bookshelves filled with dusty volumes of tattered papers, and his colorful display of bottles, there were old wooden crates, metal trunks, and textiles stacked along the back wall. Above them hung several weapons, most of which looked medieval. To the right, a blanket draped the wall, she assumed to cover an opening that went deeper into the cave.
She took all this in with a quick glance, before turning her full attention to the small bench where she’d sat the night Octavion had shown her the Crystor.
