A to Z Challenge: X

April A to Z Challenge
Day 24: X
Xylo is a character in the first installment of my series, Going off Dreams. The word xylo is from the Greek word xylon, which means wood. Xylo in the series is a woodland dryad. She has sided with darkness and is a lieutenant in a war against the protagonist's on the side of the light. She is described as having skin that looks like wood, to the touch it feels reptilian. When she speaks, her gritty teeth show decay as dirt escapes from within. She might have been pure of spirit at one time, but Xylo's darkness has engulfed and has consumed her to a maddening state. She led a threatening battle against the protagonists, but you'll have to read the book to know the rest of her story. Until next time or the next... dream ~ K.E.Nowinsky
