Fallen Hero [NOOK Book]



A damsel in distress…

As a teenager, Elinor had worshiped Miles Carew from afar. But even though Miles was now back in her life and wanted a relationship, she couldn't believe that, at last, she'd won his love.

A damsel in distress…

As a teenager, Elinor had worshiped Miles Carew from afar. But even though Miles was now back in her life and wanted a relationship, she couldn't believe that, at last, she'd won his love. She was half afraid that her former idol had grown up into a father who needed a ready-made mother for his child.

But whatever Elinor's heart said to her about Miles's intentions, her head told a different story; she had to trust and rely on him. Because both of them were being stalked by a menacing stranger….

Now Elinor really did need Miles to be a hero!

Meet the Author

Catherine George was born in Wales, and early on developed a passion for reading which eventually fuelled her compulsion to write. Marriage to an engineer led to nine years in Brazil, but on his later travels the education of her son and daughter kept her in the UK. And, instead of constant reading to pass her lonely evenings, she began to write the first of her romantic novels. When not writing and reading she loves to cook, listen to opera, and browse in antiques shops.

    Information regarding RP

    BACKSTORY<p>Neopia was a prosperous planet. Advances in technology were common, such as the Telewarper, a small ti<_>tanium ball that enables the user to teleport to other places instantly. However, Doctor Sloth one day captured the legendary Shadow Usul. He mu<_>tanted the Shadow Usul, turning it into the Shadow Darkness, turning it into a pitch black dragon-like creature with yellow eyes. However, it managed to escape, and ki<_>lled Doctor Sloth and de<_>stroyed the Space Station in the process. The Shadow Darkness created ev<_>il beings from the shadows of Neopets, which Siloheuttes and Darkness were used as names for the same thing. They turned the Faerie back into stone (even the Darkness Faerie), and took over Neopia, and ki<_>lled (or attempted to ki<_>ll) those who met them with op<><_position. The inventor of the Telewarper, Lucky, formed the Resistance to stop Shadow Darkness's ty<_>rrany. Will you join the Resistance and stop the Darkness?<p>CLASSES<p>Warriors: They are the ones who can deal the most damage, with thier long swords. Warriors not limited to just swords, as they can wield any we<_>apon. They also can wear iron armor. Though, they only know a few defensive spells, and are quite slow.<p>Wizards: They know many spells which can hurt enemies, in addition to some healing and protective spells (of which can work on both self and allies). Wizards can also create potions. But they do not know how to use a we<_>apon, though they can protect themselves. The only armor they can wear is thick leather.<p>Supporters: Like wizards, supporters can cast spells, though they know more healing and protective spells than attacks. They also know how to make potions and have no clue how to use a we<_>apon. They are completely unable to wear protective armor. Their protective spells only work on allies (unlike the wizards'), therefore they are the top priority to protect.<p>Rogues: They're fast. They're cunning. They're de<_>adly. Rogues are very agile and st<_>ealthy, enabling them to work as as<_>sassins and sp<_>ies. Though they can only work with kn<_>ives, da<_>ggers, and short swords, they're the ones if you like to hi<_>t fast and hard. Be warned: they can only wear light leather as armor.<p>Rangers: They are the guys with the bows. Ideal if you want to attack from a distance, they also wield kn<_>ives if they end up fighting enemies face-to-face or if they run out of arrows. Rangers can wear thick leather armor.<p>RULES<p>No godmodding<p>No birds and bees<p>Be descriptive<p>All NPCs (except for Shadow Darkness's minions, which can be controlled by anyone) are controlled by me.<p>No impostering<p>Be nice<p>Use OFFICIAL Neopet species<p>Any official colour and species can be used. There's lists online. Remember, some Neopets can't be a certain colour. There's also lists for Petpets and Petpetpets if ya want.<p>Have fun!<p>MAP<p>Search around!

    The Fallen Hero- prologue, by Storm

    [Since I'm new to the world of MARVEL and DC heroes, please forgive -and correct- me if I get anything wrong. And please read my other herofic at 'hero war'. -Storm]<br>
    A dark figure stood in the shadows of Gotham City's Arkham Asylum. It wore a hooded cloak, so it was impossible to know the figure's identity. It removed something from a pocket, carefully unsealing what appeared to be a small tube-like container. Then the object was slid into a carefully carved hole in the side of the Asylum. Once the tube was in the building, the figure slid a rolled up piece of paper into the hole. Now, since the job was done, the figure walked away, careful to remain hidden by shadow. When it reached the end of the Asylum property, it leapt into the air, and disappeared from view. Minutes afterr, an agonized howl resounded from the room into which the tube had been inserted into. Only but a moment later the anguished cries ceased, replaced by a deathly silence. The night watchman would open the door, wondering what was the cause of the dreadful sound, to find the rooms sole inhabitant dead on the floor. A note would be removed from a small space in the wall. The watchman lifted his radio to his mouth,"This is Watchman Collins calling in to report- the Joker is dead."
