Wyvern: A winged two-legged dragon with a barbed tail.
Wilbur the wyvern had fought to get into Fireclaw’s Training School for Dragons, determined to prove that wyverns were just as good as those big oafs.
He challenged Krarg, one of the biggest dragons, to a duel. His few friends said he was crazy, while most turned up simply for the entertainment.
He couldn’t breathe fire, but that didn’t matter. He nimbly sidestepped every volley the dragon unleashed – until he drew Krarg to a tree he had previously soaked in oil. The dragon ignited the tree in his fury, singing his wing, and the cunning Wilbur was declared the winner.

W is also for the Worldwide release of Zadekiel, Book 2 in the Path of Angels series by Patricia Lynne! (Tenuous, but I got a W in there.) I've enjoyed getting to know Patricia through the Challenge and reading her dark and thrilling flash fiction, so I was only too happy to help out with her launch.
The path is lost.
With Michael gone, the mantle of leadership falls to Zadekiel. In this time of darkness, with tempers running short, Zade struggles to guide his brothers. Hope comes in the form of a green haired woman with a unique gift. She represents a way back to the path they lost when Michael disappeared.
Zephyr fills books with cryptic poetry, a powerful compulsion, which is more a curse than a blessing. With no control over her ability, she struggles to live a normal life. When she meets Zade, he insists her ability is a gift from God. Reluctantly, she agrees to join the cause–it’s hard to dispute a man with wings.
Now the path is found, but one question remains. Will it lead to further darkness?
You can also pick up Michael, the first book in the series, here.
