Thriller / Action

February 2nd (War)

We stood united.

Overhead, the sounds of bombs and bullets reaping through the air; the sun blocked out by a vehement cloud of ash. We glanced at each other and swallowed whatever hope we had left, and then...we ran into the fire.

The way the bullets whipped the wind was reminiscent of the way rain feels on the skin in a fierce gale; perhaps we could just pretend we were running in the rain: just like during training. I never bothered turning around, never bothered looking back, never bothered caring about my life or my death; this was hell, and I had reached it regardless of whether I was still alive or not.

Every step meant a new casualty, every second meant the chance of it being me was raised. We continued. We were an army of millions, and every second the number dropped. Hundreds of thousands to thousands, to hundreds, to tens, to us. We made it; we survived. The prize? Shelter. The noise was unending, the crashing of shells unto the muddy floor sounded as if fireballs were raining from the sky. In a sense, that was exactly what was occurring.

We waited in that pit for hours, waiting for the barrage to end, waiting for the flames to die, waiting...waiting for the silence to consume everything.

taosgw74: If this is the authors first attempt at writing, I'm floored. I was engrossed in the plot from the get go.

smile4me: Exciting page turner. I was barely able to put it down to go to bed. I can usually figure out the twists before they are revealed but not this time! Such a thrill to be surprised. I can hardly wait for the follow up!!

harry142018: This story was gripping and very professionally written. With lots of twists and slight of hand tricks, the author deceives the reader until finally showing their cards at the end. With several subplots all intertwining to create the main plot, this really is an interesting and engaging read.

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...

kim: This is great! Maybe it could just be a little more specific. One of the keys to great writing is describing things in detail. I think you're off to a great start. I wish you much luck.

Kelsey Miller: Page turner set in a gritty future. Loads of flavor and depth that makes the pages fly by until like me you are at the end of the book wanting more!The world is developed to the point it begs more stories set in this harsh reality. More adventures from Daryl and thr crew.

Laraine Smith: This should be a movie! You are talented! It is that good! Keep it up! It is visual! It grabbed me! Don't give up!

Pablo Rojas: Love the story, at the end it is a western story, simple, yet giving hints and pieces of the situation that is happening all over ravencroft´s universe. easy to read and always keeping with the main stream story I want to keep reading about, Olafson´s adventures.

Jason Phang: I'm pretty new to Inkitt (this is only my 4th book) and I must say I've been thoroughly impressed by the quality of the authors here. Remnants of Chaos is an excellently written book that hooks the reader, and doesn't let go. There are some grammatical and typographical errors, but nothing too se...
