Introducing: Mikel Aramus Perfero

Mikel is the cousin of Rachaya's late mother in The Rachaya Series.

Mikel is cheeky and most often has a sparkle in his eyes. However, he also has a quick temper and isn't afraid to show it. He thought of Adara, Rachaya's mother, as a sister and therefore views Rachaya as a favourite niece. He is married to the Lady Anjela, with whom he has one son, Lord Hektor. Born a prince, Mikel is excellent at diplomacy and extracting himself from difficult situations. He is not used to being told 'no'.

Hobbies: sword fighting, deliberately upsetting his wife's delicate sensibilities, taking tea with his mother.

Appearance: Mikel has the vibrant Perfero red hair, but it is greying somewhat at the temples. He is fairly tall for a fire dragon and has sparkling blue eyes. When angry his eyes turn to green, the colour of his dragon form.

Key qualities: Mikel is a good confidant and follows duty to a fault. He is a loyal subject to King Stimeon.

Elemental type: Fire dragon

FrightFall 2017 - Argh!

If there is one genre of fiction that I am guilty of avoiding it is horror. Overactive imagination + horror = terrible nightmares. Once or twice over the years I have taken part in the always-fun Seasons of Reading challenges. This year I am going to take part in Fright Fall over the month of October. The idea is to read at least one horror book over the course of the month.

Have you got any suggestions for a good example of horror fiction for me to read?

Frightfall Book 1: Frankenstein, by Mary Shelley
Frightfall Book 2: Ghostly, a collection of short stories compiled by Audrey Niffenegger

Hobbies: playing Rune Roar, eating bug candy.

Appearance: Reijko is pint-sized with large grey eyes.

Key qualities: Like most air dragons, Reijko has a strong psychic ability and is on his way towards becoming a talented dreamer.

Elemental type: Air dragon
