This is the illustration for Chapter fourteen; featuring Rowan and Sam's school friend Amanda. in this chapter: Rowan is starting to adjust to life at the White Fortress. But it looks like he will have problems after all; he has all the girls in a flutter and all of the boys green with jealousy. Even Sam's friend Amanda is doe-eyed. Luckly the ever reliable Liz is on hand to help her new friend out. Meanwhile, out in the far away Dragonfire Castle, Sven and Eraglon are plotting something nasty for the pair and their alies... I wanted to weave some symbolism into this one. For example; Amanda holds white lillies from the bunch in front of them, yet Rowan holds a single black rose. he is still very separate from his fellow White wizards. Eke hovers close by, for he will alaways be Rowan's best friend, no matter what life throws their way!
