This has got to be my favourite illustration of all of them! In this chapter: Sven, Eraglon and Mr Astra decide that enough is enough. They will have to take Rowan back kicking and screaming. So using a sleeping spell, they lure him out onto the Fotress battlements in the middle of the night. At first they try to manipulate him into feeling sorry for himself and come back peacefully. Rowan knows where his true friends are, and after refusing to leave, they turn to more violent tactics. Rowan screams in their arms, desperate not to be taken back to the horrors of Dragonfire Castle. Fortunately, Oblon hears him cry out and runs in, just as the three disappear, leaving Rowan in tears on the floor. My symbols come in again here! So this is Sven's hand, and he is holding the rose from the previous chapter illustration. He has frozen the flower with his magic, and the leaf is all tattered. The rose symbolises Rowan. Incidently, the hand was drawn from real-life from my own hand. I drew this on a Technology trip to Cardiff Sophia Gardens. Me and my friend got bored and couldn't find anyone else from our school around. So we sat in the foyer and I drew this. Turned out that the rest of our school had left the gardens and gone into Cardiff centre and we were the only two who had actually stayed!
