Sages: The Burned Soul (Jon's Saga)

By shadzler All Rights Reserved ©

Drama / Action


Things always begin so small. It’s like a recipe, add one part of something another part of something else and something new is created. The universe followed this same rule in its creation, mixing dark and light together then in one big bang everything was created equally good and bad. But as dark forces will, the dark began to eclipse the light. Everywhere in the universe, the dark spread over like a blanket to make everything one black void, and the light stood no chance. Strong as it was its good nature would not allow itself to hurt anything even if it caused harm to it. It was then that the creator saw what was happening to its creation and was not going to allow an imbalance to occur within it. Separation of the two entities was out of the question as it would destroy them both, for neither could exist without the other. Looking at the woe of its creation, the creator saw something crowding toward the small bits of light that were yet to be extinguished. Neutral beings that even though composed of both light and dark, tried to fight the dark away and defend the light. They stood no chance, holding little power over the world they were born in but still it did give the creator a thought. Looking over the universe the creator acted on its whim, pointing a finger to a nearby speck of dust next to a small shard of light as the speck of dust then glew bright, brighter than any of the light in the universe. The dark saw this from even the farthest corner of the universe and began to rush to it.  The creator looked down and saw several neutral beings on the speck of dust gather toward the new light, and when they touched it the beings glew bright as intense as the light. But they didn’t hold the lights golden hugh, they glew with colors from the whole spectrum. The creator smiled at her creation and knelt down to it and whispered in the softest voice to the neutral beings

Protect the light

Guided by these words those 6 neutral beings used their new light to protect the light they loved. The dark eventually surrounded the speck of dust but was quickly beaten, repelled even to edge of the universe, as the light that remained grew brighter than ever with the dark finally achieving the balance that the universe needed. But it wasn’t the end to the dark, small pieces of it still latched itself onto other specks of dust, waiting for the right time to attack the light once again. The creator did not lose any sleep over this, for the new light beings she had created would keep her creation safe.

...and so they did

Raymond Keith Moon: Great story arc. Nice command of the balance of overview and detail. Feels a bit like a multi-player computer game, but provides satisfying explanations for all the apparent magic. Please keep writing!

Ben Gauger: Kudos to Bryan Laesch, author of Remnants of Chaos:Chaotic Omens for his use of the Gothic style of writing and in addition the footnotes and endnotes at the end of each chapter, a welcome accompaniment to be sure, though his use of grammar could use a little improving, but his use of punctuation...

Tanya Daigle Rusheon: This book is a long and twisty tale full of sweet romance, adorable fluff, anxiousness, trust issues, mind games, things that don't make sense until suddenly they do, heartache and reconciliation just when you need it the most. If that all sounds a bit vague, it's because I really don't want to s...

Ashley Stryker: So I'm writing this review, keeping in mind that this is a work in progress and it's part of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), so my "deeper" critiques will be saved until it's all finished up.+ Chapter One: A stewardess would not talk to anyone quite like that, particularly a clear minor...

LouiseJ2: I enjoyed the detail you went into with regards to the case. It made the UNSUB appear believable. The crisis in the middle of the story was my favorite part, very dramatic but not over the top. I feel like sometimes pairings can be overdone but I liked that some of the relationships were a little...

John Smith: This is what Sci Fi is all about. Reads like early Heinlein. In the style of Space Cadets. No esoteric problems..but good ol blaster and space action with a host of relatable characters

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...
