The back yard was dotted with shrubs, which his mother paid a man from the village to manicure once a week.“Wait here,” Jacen said. He went around to the side door that led directly into the kitchen.There, just as expected, he found his mother. Gwenda was kneading dough to make a pie crust. She looked up as soon as he walked through the door. Even with her hair in disarray and her hands and clothes covered in flour, the 33-year-old was beautiful, with hair the color of bark and eyes the blue color of the pond.“Jacen, you’re late,” she said. “What took you so long? And what the hell is going on out there? It sounds like something spooked the horses.”Jacen took a deep breath. “Mom, could you come outside? I’ve … I’ve brought a guest home.”Gwenda’s eyes widened. “A guest? From the forest? What are you talking about?”“Just come outside.”She washed her hands in a bucket and dried them on a towel, then followed Jacen outside. She was still asking questions, but Jacen’s heart was pounding in his ears and he didn’t catch any of them. They stepped into the sunlight and Jacen turned to face his mother, who had stopped short just beyond the doorway. “Mom … this is Dracor.”“Greetings,” Dracor said.Gwenda let out a squeak and promptly keeled over.Book 3: "Bloodshed in Fallreach" - of Bloodshed in FallreachAs the street they were on intersected with another in a wide clearing, they came upon the first body of a dragon. The slain dragon was completely ringed in by dead human soldiers. “Did you know him?” Jacen asked.“Not well,” Dracor admitted, and felt a sharp twinge of shame as he did so.“How many dragons did your uncle bring with him?”“No more than a dozen, I believe.”“A dozen dragons leveled an entire city?” “It would appear that way.”Jacen swallowed. “And how many dragons live in the Wyrmgarden?”Dracor thought about it. “About 500.”In front of the fountain what looked to be a large pedestal or altar had been erected. It was wider even than the fountain, stretching nearly across the entire diameter of the plaza. And sprawled across the altar….Dracor gasped. “Ohen.”He lumbered over to the side of the altar. Copper-colored scales, spiked tail – – it was his brother’s body.But the head was missing.Dracor let out a howl of misery so loud that Jacen covered his ears. He buried his face against Ohen’s chest and let the tears spill. Why would they have taken his head and left the rest of him?
