Shadows In A Timeless Myth Presents Six Sentence Sunday Excerpt One

 Shadows In A Timeless Myth
Six Sentence Sunday Excerpt 

And so it was until there came into being the fifth and final race—the Mortali, different from all who came before. Magickless and plain, naked and frightened, forced to survive on nothing more than wits and verve—yet endlessly curious, constantly seeking understanding and the truth of that nebulous something that instinct told them should have been theirs by right—something they alone had been denied and for whose lack, they would evermore ache...something that by its very absence made them different from all that came before.

         And it was this nebulous something whose very absence repulsed and yet drew the four elder races to the fifth like moths to an irresistible flame—for although the Mortali neither understood nor treasured its value, they alone had been granted the most precious gift of all...the ability to lay down their burdens, free their captive memories and embrace the finality of death.

         It is on this earth, and in this reality that two elders, both female—adversaries by birth, friends by choice—wander through time accompanied by one Mortali ordinary man burdened with an extraordinary curse, and the savage beast who shares his soul.
