This is the prologue and first two chapters of a work-in-progress novel, entitled 'The Morgoth'. It features Galdor, a young knight of the Templar Draconica dragon riders, who leaves the only home he has ever known after it is destroyed by the foul Alroks. In this first part, we meet Galdor, Menderfrold his dragon steed, and set the stage for the attacks by the Alroks! Please note, I am aware that 'Morgoth' is a Tolkien character, being the first dark lord. My Morgoth bears little or no resemblance to this character, being an Artificial God encased in a vast pillar of black marble which devours the souls of its worshippers.
