Have you ever noticed how life can shift all of sudden? You’re going along thinking everything is great and then WHAM, you get hit by a bus. Well, maybe not a literal bus, but you get what I mean, right? I’m talking about that moment in time when everything changes and life as you know it comes to a crashing halt.


My name is Abigail Freeman and for me, that moment came on my sixteenth birthday. It wasn't anything so dramatic as getting hit by a bus. In fact, it was so subtle, I didn’t even recognize the moment for what it was. Not until later could I look back and say, yeah, that was the moment my life changed forever.




     I was about halfway home when I heard the rumble of the motorcycle pull up behind me. My heart jumped up in my throat, but I didn’t stop. I wanted to pretend it wasn’t him for as long as possible.


     The engine cut off. “Abigail.”


     My brain screamed run even as I turned around to face him. Somewhere deep inside I knew he was about to change my life and even though part of me wasn’t ready for it, a stronger part was.


     When he pulled off his helmet I couldn’t help but think how cute he was. Hey, don’t roll your eyes at me. Even given the uncertainty of the situation, it’s not the sort of thing a girl could fail to notice. 


     “I don’t know you,” I said, keeping a careful distance between us.


     “No, but I know you.” He got off the bike. “My name is Zack.”


     “That’s nice.” I took a step back. “How, exactly, do you know me?”


     “It’s kind of hard to explain,” he said. “You might not believe me and I don’t want to scare you.”


     “Here’s a tip,” I said, “if you don’t want to scare a girl you’ve never met, you might want to rethink following her around like some kind of stalker. Explain yourself right now, or I swear I’ll  run screaming to the nearest house and call the cops.”


     He gazed thoughtfully at me for a long moment, then asked, “Do you know what a dragon is?”


     How do you like that for a question? I blinked, entirely bewildered at the bizarre turn in the conversation. “You mean like in the movies? Those flying lizards that breathe fire and stuff?”


     “Yes,” he said, “but then again, no. The movies have it wrong. They distort the truth.”


     “What truth?” I was starting to wonder if this guy had a few screws loose. “Why are we talking about dragons? What has that got to do with why you’re following me?”


     “It has everything to do with it. With you. With me. Dragons were real, Abigail. They still are. And two of them happen to be standing on this sidewalk right now.”


Title: Chasing The Whirlwind (Dragon Within Series #2)

Author: Kyra Dune

Genre: YA Urban Fantasy

Cover Art: Shadow Portal Productions




It isn't easy to start a new life. To leave behind everything you know to go to a strange place full of strange people. Especially when you're sixteen and everyone you love thinks you're dead.

My name is Abigail Freeman and this is exactly the situation I found myself in after discovering the shocking truth about my heritage. Before Zack came into my life, before I knew anything about dragons and powers and secrets, I thought I was an ordinary girl. No different from my friends and family. Once I discovered the truth, everything changed.



“Stupid cups,” I muttered, as I watched them fall for what felt like the thousandth time. I was getting really irritated and a lingering headache wasn’t improving my mood any. Glaring at the cups still stacked on the table, I wanted them to blow away. All of them. As soon as the thought entered my mind, a big wind whooshed from behind me and sent the cups blowing across the grass.


A smile started to form on my lips, but it quickly died when I saw the tense expression on Alice’s face. “What?” I asked.


“The destructive capabilities of our power is astounding,” she said with unusual solemnity. “You have no idea of the things you can do without even meaning to. You’re frustrated now, with these cups? What if you get frustrated with a person? How would you feel if you threw someone up against a wall or out a window? Stressful emotions are a trigger for your powers. If you can’t control them, someone could get hurt.”


My momentary elation quickly faded. I thought of the waitress at the truck stop, covered in glass and blood, her dead eyes staring into mine. I never wanted to be responsible for doing something so horrible.
