Nature in its most primitive and beautiful form. The kind of beauty that makes you catch your breath. A stillness. A sense of danger, and with it a pull of excitement. Elemental. The word could have been created for them. A gap opened in the circle for them. Directly in the centre of the cavern stood a throne.

Her guard obscured the man’s face from Iona as he took his seat. A circle of gold sat on his black mane of hair like a crown. Gold there was, too, on the buckle of his broad belt, from which hung a claymore with a jewelled hilt.
