Excerpts:

This is your big plan?’ Ash asked. ‘You’re going to row all the way to Eden.’ His voice dripped with sarcasm. ‘At this rate, we’ll be there next year – oh wait, that’s right, you don’t have a year.’ ‘Unless you have a plane, this is the best I can do,’ Charlie said. ‘There’s an idea,’ Oren said. She regarded Ash. ‘We could fly.’ ‘Now there’s a plan,’ Ash said. ‘You have a plane?’ Charlie asked. Ash grinned. ‘I have something way better.’ Removing his sword from around his shoulder, its black leather sheath protected with metal guards at both ends, he tossed it to Oren, who caught it with a firm grip, and then walked away from the group. ‘Where’s he going?’ Charlie asked. ‘He’s going to change,’ Oren replied. ‘Change his clothes?’ Oren smiled. ‘No. He’s going to shape-shift.’ The trio shot nervous glances at one another and then looked at Ash. They were aware that Aeons and Lightworkers could change form, but apart from seeing Avaran’s giant frame, they had never witnessed a full transformation. Though, if it was anything like Derkein’s transformation, Charlie thought, it wouldn’t be a pleasant sight. Ash turned to face the group and got down on his hands and knees. Right away, he started to twitch, and then his body tensed. It happened in under a minute: the throbbing of his veins, the bulging of his muscles, his fingernails growing into long, sharp claws, his arms and legs stretching to obscene lengths and his smooth skin becoming rough and scaly. The trio froze, their jaws dropped, eyes wide open. Where Ash had been standing only seconds ago now stood a terrifying monster. Standing nearly nine feet tall and seven feet in length – excluding its tail – it had a head shaped like an acorn with two backswept horns that were the same ivory shade as its claws and teeth. Even if Charlie hadn’t seen the transformation with his own eyes, he still would have recognised Ash behind the beast’s eyes and its fiery red skin, the same tone as Ash’s hair. ‘Is that a dragon?’ Richmond asked in a high-pitched voice. ‘Yes,’ Oren answered. ‘He’s not dangerous, right?’ Charlie asked. ‘You needn’t worry,’ Oren assured them. ‘It is still Ash. He will not harm you.’ Charlie started walking towards Ash, who set into a crouch as he approached. ‘He can’t talk, can he?’ He glanced behind him at Oren, who was following him. Alex and Richmond were still standing on the bridge. ‘No, he cannot talk,’ Oren said. ‘When in animal form, Aeons and Lightworkers of the same kingdom can communicate telepathically.’ Charlie moved alongside the dragon, his eyes locked on Ash’s giant bat-like wing. He looked up and saw hard, huge red eyes fixed on him. ‘I think I prefer this version of Ash. Less noise.’ Something thwacked him on the back, and he stumbled forward, dropping onto his hands and knees. ‘Charlie,’ he heard Alex scream. She was by his side in seconds, helping him up. Oren took his other arm. He turned around and saw Ash’s wing extended. He could swear he was smirking – if dragons could smirk.
