Prologue

Scratch


It’s hard to start without having a thought of having what to start. Most likely, the beginning of everything great started from simple thoughts that weren’t thoroughly thought through. Wow. If everything was great then the beginning must also be great.

Wrong.

If everything was great, things from the beginning must be twisted and everything. That’s how things work. Unfortunately, great things are usually accepted by the more fortunate and not the less fortunate. Sad thing is that the less fortunate needs to climb up and struggle more in order to stand taller than those who have better lives.

In all honesty, we less fortunate wished to be like one of them. Fortunate… normal… less tragic.

Nobody deserved such fate and nobody wished for tragedy. And yet it happened. Funny thing is that “There is a reason for everything”. Don’t you think it’d be scary if someone died for a reason? Don’t you think it’d be scary if someone’s misfortune happened for a reason?

Don’t you think that it’d be scary if someone was tortured for a reason?

And the answer for that reason was “Because I had free time.”

Doesn’t that make your blood boil?

Doesn’t hearing something like that make you so infuriated that you might punch someone in the face?

We less fortunate people experience those kinds of reasoning to a fault wherein you can’t do anything about it. We feel pain more intense than what you more fortunate ones know.

Because it is tradition, because we can’t burden ourselves with another child, because you are unworthy, because you are ugly, because we don’t love you, because there’s no other option, because we don’t care… because.

Bottom line is that there are questions that are better-off unanswered.

Why the hell am I even saying these things?

Don’t worry, you’ll know soon enough.

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.

Jessica Esa: With a tantalising end to the first chapter, the authour has given us a treat and a welcome addition to the fantasy adventure genre. To limit it to just such would be an injustice however, as this novel clearly draws on elements of historical fiction, fairy tale and horror. Simply, there's someth...

aoifecollopy22: I loved how the author had the conflict come back later in the story. Also how they passed time without going over anything. That really helped move the story along. This kept my up for a few hours. YOU SHOULD READ THIS

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.

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. The writing style is almost broken- sentences move into each other awkwardly, and are filled with an excess of "filler words", lik...

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...

Catherine Kopf: Wow! This was a really great story. I really enjoy reading fantasy, so it didn't take long for me to become invested in the book and its characters like Jacob. I really liked your writing style, and it seemed to flow very well. The descriptions that you used for your world were also created n...

makaylakay: I love love this story! It's written incredibly and well thought-out plot! I love how it's a different twist in fantasy fiction, other then the usual vampire or werewolves. Love the romantics and drawn to the two characters so much already! This book will draw you in within the first chapter and ...

NancyRichFoster: This story had me mesmerized from the first word! I am now going to read book two, with the hopes that book three will be finished by the time I finish reading it, so I will not have to wonder how the story ends! Kudos for a fascinating story!

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...

Chevonne Prinsloo: I loved this book.. I didn't want to stop reading it! just my kind of book... I really love how the plot of the story carries along. I hope there are more books to follow after this one! I like the way she describes how Rogue is feeling and the way she shows the emotions going through Rogu. I als...

NancyRichFoster: This second book of the Anmah Series was as awesome as the first story, I disagree with spare runner. The names were ordinary names with different spellings, which I for one loved. I am now going to read the third book in this amazingly awesome story!

Dru83: This is the second or third time I've read this one and I just love it. It has just about everything you could ever want packed into one scifi story. It still has some parts that are a little rough in terms of grammar, punctuation, and word usage, but it's still an awesome story. I love how detai...

Kevin Brand: My overall rating: 4.8/5 starsLoved. Every. Second. Everytime I came back to continue reading I got this overwhelming feeling of getting hooked on the first sentence... Over and over and again!The only things that were missing for me include more descriptions on what happens when Reuben touches s...

nirrmitshah: A truely touching story where you'd be at the edge of your seat for the most time. even though the starting might seem rushed, the story was extremely interesting and entertaining. I think certain parts could be added detailing the Mynds's culture. As well as more details on the Jhanthru history....
