The tall, lean, bald man in black shoved David down to the side as he focused angrily at Father Brian. Brandishing his curved sword with both hands near his right shoulder, the black-eyed man looked at Father Brian and said, “It’s you, eh? It’s been a long time. What,
say two hundred years since I killed you the last time?”
“Well, this time you’ll feel my steel, demon. Back to the abyss!” yelled Father Brian as he whipped out a long sword from his black trench coat. What David saw Next was beyond his comprehension. As Father Brian charged at the black-eyed man, Father Brian’s eyes
changed to a glowing solid white as a six-inch-thick aura of white light shimmered all around him. The energy about him pulsed with bright light and fiery heat that David felt as Father Brian charged past him. Father Brian held his long sword, which also pulsed with white light all around it, above his head, with both hands over his right shoulder, as he charged. The fanged man in black responded accordingly, and the thick, charcoal-gray aura pulsing around him gave him a shadowy appearance as he awaited the charging Father Brian. He was pulsing out bone chilling frost, and wielding his scimitar with both hands in front of him.
Father Brian’s initial charge was easily blocked by the tall, dark warrior. As they collided, a shock wave rippled out from them – and it seemed as though time was standing still. The shock wave initially felt fiery hot, then bone-chillingly icy cold, then tingly as the hair on David’s arms stood straight up. As the shock wave pulsed outward, every object bent as the wave moved through it – and then returned to normal.
“What an exciting story – full of swashbuckling adventure, magical swordplay, fire vs. ice, good vs. evil. I literally stayed up all night to finish this wonderful epic thriller. I hope the author has Hollywood in mind – because Dred Wars would make a fantastic blockbuster!”
