    Sixty-six million years ago, there was a species called Pectinodon formosus, a type of raptor dinosaur that had built a civilization, unparalleled by any before or after it. They called themselves the Krekata. But not even several hundred thousand years of development could save them from the apocalyptic event that was approaching.

    Except the radical new discovery of time travel. Hundreds of their kind have left, using portals in time to find a new home. None have returned.

    Blurb:
    Children in Iseac have started to go missing. Threatened with the loss of his leadership role, Elijah has been ordered to uncover who is responsible and stop them.

    I am writing a fantasy series and have spent a lot of time world-building and writing backstories and am now ready to start actually writing a full novel. I intended to start from the POV of a 14-year-old girl (Yasmay) writing in the third person; the series would loosely follow her arch as she grew to 19 years of age. Still, when I sat down to write, I thought to go in a different direction and start the series when she's 17 instead and recap through memories in book one. I will also post the original beginning titled Bealbry #1 and would appreciate feedback on which version you (the beta reader) prefer. Oh and apologies for any unexplained terminology.
