A sneak peek at Charm of Light

            A sense of foreboding filled Kail McKenna as he listened to the Elders discuss the coming battle. They can talk all they want but nothing can stop the demon…save for the souls in this room. He leaned in the corner, his shoulders brushing against the cool stone of the castle wall, and studied the men and women seated at the long oak table. A meeting with the Council of Elders, who presided over the Coven of Seven and their Guardians usually did more to stir up trouble than settle it. Seven sisters with varied gifts, witches all. A fire had been laid in the hearth; its crackling embers chased the shadows and dank chill from the room.
I prefer the shadows.
His gift of darkness balanced Cailin’s light. The intricate tattoo on the ball of his left arm vibrated and warmed in her presence along with another parts of him. His love for her was forbidden, devotion was expected but not this all-consuming desire he felt. Hiding it from the others was damn near destroying him.
 Returning his concentration to the conversation around him, Kail forced his mind to clear. I wonder if they would notice if I froze time for ten minutes. Just ten minutes. Seated at the long wooden table in front of him, Cailin brought up the one point everyone else had danced around.
            “Forgive me, my lords, but the eclipse will soon be upon us. In two night’s time, Elias will be stronger than ever before. We should attack now, while he is at his weakest.”
It was council elder Bracken who spoke first. “The prophecies disagree.”
Idiots. They may be all powerful but they are fools to trust the ancient scrolls. “The prophecies are wrong. We must draw him out before then, as Cailin said.” Kail moved to stand behind his charge.
“Calm yourself. As I said, the prophecies disagree, which is why we are dispatching your guardian to recruiting a powerful ally. We will need him to fight the coming battle.” Bracken continued.
“What? You would send away Guardian Kail and leave the one they want most unprotected? You are a fool.” Guardian Jax, protector of Rio the Fire, roared to his feet in outrage.
“Guardian Kail has the ability to move through space and time. What would take you months to accomplish, he can manage in the space of a few short minutes. Leaving Cailin seemingly vulnerable is the best way to draw out Elias.”
“What makes this potential ally so valuable?” Kail countered.
“He is a phoenix.”
“Only a union of fey and magical human blood could produce such a power and even then the likelihood of survival past childhood is…”
“Lady McLoch’s grandmother is faerie. Her father was human with a powerful mental gift. It’s through her Laird McLoch’s heir gains his line of power, much to his disgust. Our agent claims the phoenix controls not only the fire, but the other elements as well. He has been trained in both his father and mother’s way. He will be a valuable asset to our cause. I will not give audience to discuss the matter further. You shall leave at dusk.”
* * * *
            Kail waited until safely in his chamber to take out his frustration. Gathering his power, he released a ball of blue flames and threw it at the stone wall where it fizzled and vanished harmlessly. He couldn’t shake the feeling of dread hovering over him. I don’t want to leave Cailin unprotected.
            Wincing as his mark burned, Kail opened the door and pulled Cailin quickly into the room. She pressed close and held on as he stroked her long dark hair. “Did anyone see you? I’ll not have your reputation ruined.”
            “No. I do not like this.”
            “Nor I, but I have my orders, love.” He traced the circle of the pendant resting between her breasts. “I love you, Cailin. You will be safe until I return.”
            “And I you. Always.”
* * * *
So this was the all powerful phoenix. This man who was barely more than a boy. Tuned into McLoch, he too felt the pleasure whip through him. From his place in the shadows, Kail watched as the lad manifested the magic into a white ball of fire. Moments later, he unleashed it on his cousin, the fey Daemon.
I am a witch. A damn good one. Kail heard the thought as if it were his own. Cocky bastard. You may be, but not as good as me. The fireball became a dragon before McLoch had the faerie begging for a reprieve. “
“You win.”
“My favorite words in the world.”
“Might I remind you had I used a smidge of my real power, you’d be flat on the ground at this moment begging for a reprieve?”
“So you say, old man. Though I’ve yet to see this mighty power you speak of.”
“Old yes, in mortal years, which I am not. Half nixie. Remember? And I was doing just fine until you conjured that beast.”
“A thousand years is old, regardless.” Devin held out his hand and pulled Daemon to his feet.
Kail remained hidden and listened to their banter.
“One should hope you never find out what the age feels like. My point is, your skill is commendable but until you learn to lose, there is no true measure of your power. Humility is a lesson you have yet to learn and one I’m apparently unable to teach you.”
“I am the son of a laird. Pride is a demanded trait.” McLoch insisted
“And pride is a foolish weapon when you are lying in the dirt. You need an equal to spar against. Someone your own age skilled in battle and magic. On the morrow, we will be adding a companion to our training sessions.”
Kail took Daemon’s comment as an invitation to make his presence known.
 He walked down the bank and across the training ground, watching the other man with wariness. 
Daemon introduced him. “Devin McLoch, meet Guardian Kail McKenna, a friend of mine.”
He ignored Devin’s offered hand and said nothing.
“I’d like to say it’s good to meet you, but I can see otherwise. McKenna. Do you shun your clan? Deny your family?”
Oh great. Here it goes. “I have no clan. My sole mission is to protect the seven warrior women from harm while they accomplish their goal. To do so, I must train you, it seems.”
“Seven, hmm? Fate smiles on you.”
“Lecherous cur. Make no mistake. You will find no allies here, McLoch. Draw your sword and prove your worth, or die like a coward.” Kail materialized his sword with a thought.
“Nice trick, but a very simple one.”
The bastard. “You have no idea what realms of magic I master. Last chance. Draw your sword, McLoch.”
“Is this really necessary?”
Kail glared as Daemon tried to intervene between the two men, sending a rain shower to drown the ribbons of black lightning rippling across the air.
“You are too soft on our little laird, Daemon. If he is to be of any use to the elders, he must prove his worth. I will not have another weak guardian endanger Cailin. Your word isn’t good enough. He will fight for every breath I will allow him to take, or he will die. His choice. A true warrior never gives in, never gives up. Now draw.”
This time the kid drew his sword and prepared to fight for his life. “You are crazy!”
Kail laughed. “That point is debatable, depending on your perspective.”
Sounds of clashing steel filled the night as he struck out with his blade. A second more, another couple of inches and that would have been the end of Laird McLoch’s pride and joy. Battling with everything he could muster, magic flitted around the training ground like fireworks. Thrust. Dodge. Parry. Endless. Kail allowed Devin to believe he had him cornered just as he was about to gain the upper hand, Kail bent space and transported himself behind Devin.
“What the hell? Coward! Come back here!”
“Right here, McLoch.” Kail flashed behind him, his blade very close to Devin’s tender anatomy. “Yield or you’ll be Danielle come morning. As you said. Everything is a weapon. Magic alone won’t win the battles to come, nor will skill with a sword. Use any and all weapons that come to hand. Yield.”
Devin let his sword fall to the ground. “I yield, for now, but this isn’t over, McKenna.”
“Good. So you aren’t stupid. A wise man knows when to retreat.” He handed Devin his fallen sword and called to Daemon, “He has skill and power. I’ll train him.We start an hour before sun-up, pretty boy. Don’t be late.”

Leaving both men speechless, Kail flashed out of Scotland and into hell.
