As promised last week in my post on how to write a prophecy for a fantasy novel, here are a few of the prophecies in my books, “The Third Dragon” and “The Raven’s Fire”. First, “The Third Dragon”.
Part of the Prophecy of Peace
This is part of the prophecy which is prevalent throughout the fantasy novel series. You will find that some characters remember the words differently and interpret them in their own way.
Blood is drawn; the choice is made,
And a red moon rises followed by an eclipse of the sun.
The fate of the Third Dragon has been set into motion.
Destined to bring back magic,
The Third Dragon will grow to set the hidden Lion free.
Their lives intertwine bringing together two great legacies.
The ancient land will heal
When the blood of Dragon and blood of Lion freely combine.
Two sons will be born to continue the family line.
The Bird and Beast Prophecy
Wing of bird; wing of beast,
Come together and make their peace.
Arms as black as the night
Take the beast and show him the light.
If their paths do not cross,
None will be left to mourn the loss.
Beast of Darkness Prophecy
Ripping, tearing, burning, seething.
If it does not stop, the land will quit breathing.
Beast of Darkness; Child of Light.
The son of the Dragon can set the world right.
Death and ruin will come to all,
If the Dragon is not there to break its fall.
Blood is Drawn Prophecy
To change the order of things to be,
A man will try to defy destiny.
He will bring harm to those so near.
Yet shed not a single tear.
That is when the blood will spill,
When the choice is made to kill.
Now from “The Raven’s Fire”.
The Dragon Riddle
This isn’t so much as a prophecy as it is vague instructions on how to get to a dragon’s lair. In my second fantasy novel, “The Raven’s Fire”, Lord Kildas must go to a distant place and steal an egg of a dragon. “The Raven’s Fire” will be available soon as an e-book on Amazon (soon meaning within the next week or two).
Silver River’s end is where you begin.
Head northeast through the pass of Borden.
Sleep at dusk, awake at dawn.
For ten perilous days you will travel on.
Whether you live or die
Will depend on these clues you apply:
Mix dirty with clean
To make the invisible seen.
Turn dark into light
At the fairies invite.
Travel from above to under
Into the crystal wonder.
Go right then left
After passing the cleft.
The angels are witches,
So don’t give them kisses.
In you have come, now out you go.
Follow the headstones in the snow.
Ice on fire,
Beware the dragon’s ire.
The Curse of Magic Prophecy
Magic to heal causes pain. If this same magic is used to harm someone, creates pleasure. What if our hero has to hurt someone with his magic in order to save someone else? Will he discover the pleasure of it and fall into the trap? This is all answered in “The Raven’s Fire”.
The Dragon will be tempted to kill
By using his magical skill.
But even for a good cause,
He will be breaking ancient laws.
Magic used to heal could turn into a curse.
If it is used to kill, the fate of man will be worse.
For the Brother of Death will gain his release,
And bring an end to the Prophecy of Peace.
Most of these prophecies are from my first two books in the Dukarian Legacy fantasy novel Please visit Amazon.com now for “The Third Dragon” available in both e-book and paperback form. “The Raven’s Fire” is now available on Amazon as an e-book. Both are available on my author page for D. R. Ross.
