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.

Erin Crowley: The concept here is really strong, but the execution is definitely lacking. Tenses, grammar, etc are all off, with at least one or more errors per 'Page' on my phone.

Alex Rushmer: This was not what I expected, but I enjoyed it a lot Malfoy was always one of the characters that I liked a lot, so I like that a lot of this happens between him and Colette.

ernbelle: When I first started this story I was a little unsettled by all of the information that appears in the prologue, and wasn't sure if I would continue. However, I am very glad I did.

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...

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.

littlebunnypoopoos: Omg this was so amazing! The ending was a little bad and predictable. But otherwise, I need a second book or I'll die :D The character development was excellent and the whole romance, action, and suspense was superb

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 ...
