Word of the Day

Malachi (proper noun) — The name of Chariss's dragon companion in the epic fantasy novel Choices Meant for Gods

Etymology: Old Testament (yes, read all the symbolism into this that you can); Fantasy Author Sandy Lender also made this an Ungol word meaning "one who speaks for a goddess," which sort of alludes to the fact that the prophet Malachi of Biblical times did a lot of speaking for God when he was prophesying wrath and doom & gloom

Word in a Sentence: In the epic fantasy novel Choices Meant for Gods, the fledgling dragon grows as his knowledge of how to manage himself grows, and, one night, the wind whispers the name Malachi to him.

Your turn! Any Old Testament fire and brimstone warning sentences for me today?

"Some days, I just want the dragon to in."
