Book 2 teaser!

After a lot of writing, I decided to put up another teaser, to give you all a taste of what I'm doing.  It's not much, but I hope it's enough to 'wet your whistle' so to speak.  :-)

Jason breathed heavily, his body was tired.  A loud hissing noise across the canyon caught his attention.  A large snake, roughly the same size as Iraad stood staring at him, his tongue flicking, tasting the air around him.  Jason could feel the Myter trying to force his darkness to overtake him, but Jason had learned how to keep him out.  As long as he focused on his own heartbeat, listening to its rhythm, he could keep the Myter’s powers at bay.  The Myter screamed angrily, unsure if it could make it across this large hole.  The Myter rose up toward the sky, until it stood on it tail.  Jason peered upward, not sure what the creatures plan was, but he knew he didn’t like it. 
     “Chloe, I need you!”  He screamed toward the fiery inferno behind him.  “I know how to defeat the Myter!”
     “Jason just stick with the plan, we have to capture Howakhan first.  I will help you, but not until we capture the Puzzler.”  She yelled back.
     “I can’t hold off the Myter much longer, he’s figured out a way across the canyon.” He yelled.
“Just a few more seconds, and this will be over.  Do what you can, and we’ll be there soon.” She answered back. 
Chloe knew that Jason was almost out of time, but she was struggling herself, she wasn't sure they could hold off the Myter, let alone a fierce fire breathing dragon.

Thank you to everyone who has already reviewed it, and thank you to those that have read it.  I am enjoying all the feedback I am getting, and will be posting another "teaser" for Book 2 a little later.  :-)  Happy Reading!!

Character Conundrum

I have a slight character conundrum. I have an entire page in my outline for The Enchantment Series that is dedicated to my characters. Their names, ages, hair color, etc... are all typed up in a "no one but me can understand this mess" kind of thing. As I was writing a couple of days ago, I realized that maybe every single person might not need a name, after all, the book isn't about the maid in the castle of Loch, or the boy that watches over the horses, it is about Chloe, Jason, Preston, Megan, and Zach. So why do I feel it so necessary to give a name to everyone else? The only answer I could come up with is each one of these people had names when I dreamt the story of Mere. They walked and breathed, and had feelings. Giving each person a name brings the world to life. It helps me visualize the surroundings, and get a better feeling for my main characters. I have been trying to provide my readers with a little less character, and a lot more action in book 2, so hopefully you all will be able to put more focus on the lives of the five characters the story is made for. I do however want to know, what is your character limit? Also who is your favorite character, and why? Not just from Mere Enchantment, but from any book.
