Fantasy / Action

Prolouge: Journal Entry

Things like this shouldn't be possible, nature could never produce- would never produce such abominations to walk this vast planet. I know what they are, but deep down I pray that I am wrong. These man-made terrors, whose actions could only be considered cannibalistic, could only be one thing. Zombies. Believe me, if you had seen half of the things that I've had the displeasure of witnessing you wouldn't hesitate to agree. I call them man made because I believe that the world's current problem with cannibalism stems from a virus. It seems logical enough to me given the facts that I've been presented with over the course of my journey. The world has become a much more simple place to live in, all you really need to know is the following; The walking corpses will try to eat you, people will try to kill you, and if you're bitten then you're infected.

It's not hard to understand the new rules of society, but it is depressing to think about. After all, it's only been two months since the end of the world. I've decided to record my experiences in this handy dandy looted notebook in the hopes that if I don't make it, someone else will remember me. Most of my family is already dead- hell, I saw my dad last week shambling about in the supermarket he used to work in- so if I die out here no one will know. If I become one of those monstrosities then no one will care. Not the most positive thoughts I've ever had, but it's better than shambling about craving brains. Anything that keeps me alive long enough to find my brother is more than welcome at this point. We were separated when things initially hit the fan, but I like to believe that he's still alive. By the sounds of the ghoulish moans drifting in on the wind my ever present fan club is getting closer. They seem to have found me once again, but they can't eat what they can't catch.

aaron10905: This is undoubtedly one of the best books written on here. I actually unistalled this app until someone told me about this story. I came back not expecting much, just to be drawn into the story and the characters. I would buy this book in real life, as long as another was promised shortly after.

Alani Foreigner: I absolutely loved how you created this story. It isn't like the other cliché stories I've ever read. I had just started reading it yesterday and just had to finish it. The main characters are grotesquely awesome and I fell in love with them. If you're into fantasy and stuff I can guarantee that ...

Marijana1: The melancholy present throughout this story has the power to influence and etch into the minds of the readers, to stay there and refuse to leave even after they have finished reading the story. This is a deep, powerful story, making the readers wonder about everything – about love, about their e...

Olivia N J Hamel: I want this book. I love it so much. It is so enjoyable to read and to have a copy of this always, I would be very happy, to always be able to come back and look at it again.

Ayesha Shaikh: I love the twists. 😆I like how the writer describes everyone's point of view and the character development. I'm gonna read all the books by this author (current and upcoming). She's one of my favorites now. The spelling mistakes are normal no big deal, the amazing plot makes up for it. Thank you ...

Mourn8220House: When first reading "Avarice," I thought it would be another fairytale but I was taken back the author's approach and choice of ending. There is little to be said for the story and overall plot besides the sudden twists and speculation, other than that I do not want to ruin a fantastic tale, you m...

Stephen Warner: To start off, I am thoroughly impressed. The writing style is somewhat unique, and the plot seemed to move at a nice and steady pace. However, I was not expecting this to be a vampire book! I am usually not one for novels about vampires, but I was pleasantly surprised! You wrote with such grace a...

Laraine Smith: Your story is both sweet and beautiful! You are a true artist! Keep up the great work! I also love the picture that you chose for your book! :)

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

Roy Jenner: I was pleased to join the action where this B-17 was limping back across the English Channel defying all odds. Obviously written by a person more than familiar with the interior of the Flying Fortresses that were familiar in the skies of Southern England during World War 2. Plenty of action here ...

maewilde25: I am so in love with this story!!! captivated me till the very end, there wasn't a dull moment. Didn't particularly enjoy the lay out and some bits of info was missing along with how a 21 year old man amassed so much wealth that needed to be explained other than that and a few spelling errors, th...

SPepper: I had a hard time putting this book down even to go to sleep. The story is compelling and beautifully character driven. I hope author will make this a series.

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...

Lauren Sanby: This is an excellent story. Very gripping and keeps your attention throughout. Hoping the author is writing a sequel because I'd love to read more about Rhi and Andreas and find out what else Rhi is able to do with her powers.
