Five Places In Mystica I’d Like to Visit
I love the world of Mystica. Of course I created it, so I’m a little biased. When I created the world of Mystica, I pictured castles, dragons, caves and forests. A world full of mist, magic, and wizards. I trapped the wizards in stones. It is up to my heroine Miranda, the Dream Walker to find and release the white wizards from their stone prisons. You will have to read the books to see how the dark wizards escape.
If Mystica were real instead of just on paper and in my imagination, here are the top five places I would like to visit:
Number 5: The Ice Caves: Though I’m not a big fan of ice and snow, there is something magical and beautiful about the Ice Caves. Blue globes, ice crystals, and of course the small ice people. I would love to sit at their table and have dinner with them. The frozen waterfall would be a wonder to see.
Number 4: The castle, especially the library. What fun it would be to roam the halls of the castle! I would look at all the tapestries, grand halls, and the throne room. I would eavesdrop on the conversations of the servants, and the King’s meetings. I would sit in the kitchen and just watch them make the grand dinners and listen to the hustle and bustle of creating it. Last, but not least, I would explore the grand library. When not writing, I enjoy reading. I think of all the stories and legends stored there, and it just makes me want to spend hours there.
Number 3: The Temple of the sun The temple of the Sun is built for the Goddess of the Sun. It is beautiful inside and out with its’ golden bricks, high cathedral ceiling, and the statue of the Goddess herself. The architecture is grand with the arches and cobblestone entrance. It would be inspirational to see such a sight. I would stand in awe, and just listen to the songs of the Priestesses honoring their Goddess. Their voices would echo through the empty corridors. I would light a candle at the feet of the statue, and stare at her features and the two suns depicted over her outstretched hands. I wonder if I would hear her bell like voice?
Number 2: The Dwarf Mountains. I would have fun digging jewels with the dwarves. Legend says you must do one day of work for one stone. They dwarves are jolly creatures, and they sing while they work. They have flashlight lanterns they wear over their heads to see in the dark caves. The caves are narrow and dark, but still it would be an interesting sight. As long as you follow their rules, you would find an enjoyable trip. However, don’t try to take one of their stones. They will turn mean and fight tooth and nail for their precious gems. They have hardened muscles from digging and chopping away at the rock walls. I would not want a fight with them!
Number 1: Dragon Mountain, the Dragon Mountain is where the dragons eat, sleep, and play. Here they raise their young, until they are old enough to fly away. How fun it would be to watch the baby dragons learn how to fly! I would sneak around the small inlets in the mountain and see the dragon’s treasure. I would listen to the dragon’s roars and screeches as they flew overhead. I hope I would catch a glance of my baby blue dragon Skye, whose color matches the sky.
Honorable mention: I can’t write a blog about the places of Mystica without mentioning the bookstore where it all started Rainbows and Dreams. This is where Miranda finds out she is a Dream Walker. This is where Kate spies on her. Rainbows and Dreams is full of potions, spell books, and various tables of magical items. I would love to go there and just browse around, and touch the same items Miranda touched.
The land of Mystica is full of wonders, and different people and lands. I have enjoyed creating it, and writing about it. I hope you enjoy the books as much as I’ve enjoyed writing them.
