ALL THAT GLITTERS ISN'T ALWAYS BEAUTIFUL ...
Opalescence glitters from each delicate scale as a Dragumon joins her peers.
A black-haired male shuffles his massive fiery-red scaled legs toward a hand chiseled marble podium. The three perfect pearl-like moons facing him spotlight his smooth, corded chest, shoulders, and arms.
“Friends.” His deep voice boomed with no aid from electronics. Human-like lips part and a serpent’s tongue licks the air. “I have exciting news. The elders have chosen our next target ... the complete and utter annihilation of the planet Sendek.”
His hairless muscled chest expands and thick-lashed eyes brighten. “I knew you would be pleased.” A smile, unbecoming any half-human beast, flashes. “Here is our first step ...”

A cry for help escapes a young woman’s lips as she thrashes in her sleep. She bolts upright and a mist of perspiration glistens on her brow. The recurring dream of an attack on her planet still fresh in her mind. The climax always the same; her death in the capital city of Joharadin. As of yet, she has avoided any such journey there.
She arrives at work a few hours later and is called into her supervisor’s office.
“Good morning, Talia. We’re having a problem at the main headquarters and we need your expertise to handle the delicacy of the situation. Please be ready to relocate to Joharadin by the end of the week.
Talia stops breathing. She clutches her throat, but remains silent.
“That will be all.” Her supervisor continues to flip through the papers on her desk.
Talia’s head spins as a whirlwind of images from her dreams culminates into one massive blur.
Another woman brushes against Talia as she enters the office. Talia gasps and sucks in a much needed breath. She flees down the corridor and into the ladies room, locking the door. Death and destruction await for me in the capitol. What do I do now?
Only magic can save her planet. But magic is long dead, replaced many millennia ago by science. Or is it?
A hidden force awakens within Talia ...
Could this be the magic resurrecting? ...

Will Talia’s magical force be strong enough to ward off the Dragumon and their obsession for mass destruction? Or will Sendeck grace the history books as another Atlantis?
