Fanfic / Spyro Madness Saga
A Fan Fic
trilogy based off the Spyro the Dragon
series, written by the Chaotic Queen of Madness. Currently in progress, with the first book
finished after two years.
View second book here.
Spyro and Cynder are sent by the guardians to investigate a disturbance, and end up falling into a new world known the the Chaotic Realm, led by an insane queen who "invited" them and another family. Spyro and Cynder both have personal problems: Spyro is raising his twin daughters alone after his mate Ember passed away laying the egg, and Cynder is literally struggling with her own mind. The queen has asked them for help, but what could she need their help with?
The saga manages to keep enough humerous qualities to be concidered Adventure-Comedy.
