    I See Skyrim Chap. 1

    As Epsilion lurked through the caves she took out her bow and snuck up on a Restless Drauger. Sh shot it with the Orcish Bow of Ice Andrew behind her. She met the Blood Elf while at Whiterun. He was a Companion and had the Blood of the Beast whatever that meant. Sh always heard stories if these great protecters of Skyrim. Legend has it they kill the giants and their Mammoths. Trapped in her thoughts she didn't hear the Draugers creep up on them. Running from them she drank a Potion of Plentiful Stamina. Finally he got out of the cave failing her mission to retrieve the Soul Gem and the Mask of Fire. Andrew said to her,"May the gods be with us as we approach the White Stag." "Agreed Andrew," she replied climbing up the mountain to their camp. When they approached a Cave Bear roared and appeared from the boulder lunging at her but she used a Shout, making it stummble back. She waited inpatiently for her Magickara to recharge to use Flamebolt but Andrew was on top of things using his Glass Bow killing the bear. Nodding to him she ran up the mountain approaching the Ghost of the White Stag. He approached her and said,"You are quite early young ones. What brings you back so early? Did you retrieve the Sould Gem and Mask of Fire?" "No, Master. We failed the assigned mission," I saw getting on one knee. "You failed such a simple task!" He roared looming over them eyes getting red as he paced shaking his head massive antlers swinging. "We deeply apologize and promise to complete this mission not leaving one stone unturned," spoke up Andrew. "No! You failed an must find the Dragon Burrial Site and slay the Blood Dragon bringing back half the profit. The beast attacks the village not far from and they reward the slayer. Again bring back half the profit, or else Andrew leaves you and I leave you both being shame and disgrace to me and Graybeard. Now begone!" Ashamed we turn trecking farther up the mountain. The 2 day and night trip payed off as the larg Ice Dragon sits on the Broken Stone. It reats and breathes frost on us both but I quickly us Flamebolt and a Quick Heal Spell. I quickly use a Conjuration Spell summoning Flame Acronach. Andrew draws his sword swinging at the draon hile I stay back shooting Iron Arrows at the great Dragon. Finaly we destroy it absorbing the sould. (For more Shouts LOL) Adrew grs th bones and scales while I get the gold keeping half. We return to the White Stag giving him his share. Also we gave him a Red Eagle sword. (for later) Hapily he said,"Finally you complete the mission. You're reward shall be seeing favor in my eyes. You shall also have a level up in Life and Magickara. Congratulations Epsilion.

    Time travel, wizards & romance but only 138 pgs

    I enjoyed this book. It was full of adventure, romance, and time travel. It reminded me of what life would have been during Merlin's early years. Very enjoyable but short and I think the ending came too abruptly with many of my own questions unanswered. Maybe they're answered in the next of the series?
