Heart of Flames: The Unforeseen Flame

Hello everyone! I hope you all enjoy the demo for The Unforeseen Flame-- the first book in the Heart of Flames series.

Summary:
You were born into an impoverished family— an impoverished Fae family. Not that there were any wealthy ones left. You have lived a life filled with hardships and scrutiny, but you’ve persevered. Keeping your head high and your heart pure. You knew that your life would be filled with these people. Filled with the hateful looks and the barbed words, and you were prepared for that. You were prepared to live a life in the shadows of everyone else.

Until one event changes your life forever. You’re chosen by a dragon and become a Dragon Rider.

The only problem?

There has never been a commoner chosen before. So you’re not only the first Fae Dragon Rider but the first commoner Dragon Rider as well? Your life has just gotten exponentially harder, but with new places come new friends—and possibly even more.

Explore the world of Gallinia and become the greatest Dragon Rider the world has ever seen!

Your journey starts here…

Dragon Color Meaning

Red: the color of fire and blood, it is associated with energy, war, danger, strength, power, determination as well as passion, desire, and love. Red riders are usually more vengeful than others, but they have their softer sides too. They are the more warrioresque riders… kinda like knights.

Green: The color of nature. It symbolizes growth, harmony, freshness, and fertility. Green has strong emotional correspondence with safety. Green riders tend to be the healers and keepers. Soft-spoken and gentle you could never go wrong with them.

Blue: the color of the sky and sea. It is often associated with depth and stability. It symbolizes trust, loyalty, stability, wisdom, confidence, intelligence, faith, truth, and heaven. Blue riders tend to be the scholars in haven, but they can also be great warriors as well. Though leaning more towards the rogue side of things.

Purple: combines the stability of blue and the energy of red. Purple is associated with royalty. It symbolizes power, nobility, luxury, and ambition. It conveys wealth and extravagance. Purple is associated with wisdom, dignity, independence, creativity, mystery, and magic. Purple riders are usually the diplomats of haven. Always the ones that stand at the forefront of meetings and are, more than likely, in leadership positions.

White: associated with light, goodness, innocence, purity, and virginity. It is considered to be the color of perfection. Although white dragons are uncommon they’re not unheard of. White dragon riders are usually the peacekeepers of the realm. Always trying to keep the balance between the sides, but always willing to protect what’s theirs with a vengeance

Black: associated with power, elegance, formality, death, evil, and mystery. Black dragon riders are usually the spies of haven. The ones that can slink in and out of the shadows with practiced ease.

Gold: the color gold is the color of success, achievement, and triumph. It is associated with prosperity, luxury, quality, prestige and sophistication. Gold riders are normally the happy-go-lucky people amidst the riders. The ones that always looks for the bright side. They, with their dragons, try to be a beacon of hope and prosperity for all of the people in Gallinia.

Bronze: Bronze is sometimes likened to brown when it comes to what it means. The color exudes the aura of nature and the ideas of experience, growth, strength, and security. Bronze Riders are closely interwoven with White Riders both striving to keep the peace and prosperity within Gallinia and all of its neighboring countries. Bronze riders, however, are much more reckless… I guess. They’re easier to anger than the White Riders. In their entirety all the Bronze Riders want to do is keep their country safe and all of the people within it.

Questions

How old is the MC? 17
How is the color of my dragon decided? The color of your dragon is based upon the personality that you give your MC. As the dragon bond, in the world of HoF, is based on the connection that your dragon feels with your soul-- it’s a soul bond. So if you’re more of a sneaky/cautious type person than you will more than likely have a black dragon. (As they are the spies of Haven.)

Is anyone else having a problem loading the demo or is it something on my end?

No I’m having problems too…

I had some problems to just keep backing out and clicking on the icon again attend to work after that

The demo isn’t working for me either and now all of dashingdon isn’t loading either. I wonder if so many people are excited for the demo that we broke it haha.

Like Icarus we were overjoyed by our new found flight, and flew too close to the sun. In other words, CRAP!

Just in case anyone was confused by the sexual preference choice: (these are the same for all genders)

Straight (all male or all female)
Bisexual (a mixture)
Gay (either all male or all female)
Asexual (a mixture)

They are in the same order.

Same issue happened during one of Golden Rose’s update, if I remember correctly. Think it was because so many people were accessing the demo that it was a little overwhelmed.

Might need a moment to work at its best.

I love this story so far. Especially Caleb. I do have a question though, what is the age of the MC?

Boy was that a good read. I definitely felt drawn into the book and your writing, in my opinion, is on point. I have no choice but to give you ten claps
