The Warder Chronicles: Book One: The Shadow Warrior
The rider spurred his roan horse at great speed through the misty, chilly darkness. It was early morning outside the fields of a Tanga-eel village, which was about fifteen miles northeast of the city of Estaran. A six-year-old girl wailed in his thick, tattooed arms.
He placed a thick, calloused hand over her mouth and she felt a warm sensation around her lips. She was puzzled for just a moment and then went back to screaming.
The child of the Tanga-eel people looked around in a desperate hope that her people would save her. They were tall, like trees, and fierce like the lions of the plains. She would be a lion too. She struggled within his strong grip and scratched his arm, but his skin was tough like leathery hide. She remembered what her Elder Mother had told her once about the lions of the plains. They only hold their prey with their sharp claws! It’s their teeth that do the killing! The girl grew fierce and made her abductor howl in pain as she turned her head around and seized a thin portion of his meaty bicep between her teeth and chomped down viciously.
He shouted and grabbed a fistful of her thick, curly hair. “Enough!” the abductor growled through clenched teeth. She released her hold on him. She tasted blood in her mouth, but noticed that it was her own tooth that had come out. His arm had barely the markings of her teeth on it. She sat still in the saddle between the thickest legs she had ever seen. She was defeated. There was nothing she could do.
