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.

usubitha1: There are many things in this book that I liked but most of all the way the author wrote this story. This is a clear inspiration for humans and inspired me much. I liked the author way of presenting the characters of the story, the plot of the story and most of all the inspiration. There are som...

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

ArgyrisMetaxas: Thrilling story which builds layer ontop of layer. A few mis spellings every few chapters. What I found special was that it took a modern day problem and took it to its logical conclusion and plays this realism with gritting precision. I'm always on edge ready to shout from adrenaline. This is gr...

heavyreader: great scifi novels but needs a better spell checker (check auto-substitution level) and grammar checker!!! otherwise, ready for mass market publishing!!

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...

mitchreed519: Truly fantastic, I would buy this book and any other prequels or sequels there after. An empowering and intriguing novel, and well written. Best literature I've read in a while, beats out published books as well.

re8622: The Last Exodus quickly grabbed my attention. Almost as soon as I started reading the story, I couldn't put it down. I found that the ideas the author put forth were very thought provoking given the turmoil we have seen gradually rise over the last several years. I felt that I could understand th...

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...

I’m amazed at how well you’ve managed to flesh out the characters in this book, and I hope to read more of your work.I’ve read books about goblins and elves and all that mumbo-jumbo before, and most accounts of these c...

Hawkebat: Playing both Kotor I & II and Swtor I found the story line interesting and it held me until chapter 35 Very good story and plot flow until then, very few technical errors. I felt that the main character was a bit under and over powered, as it fought for balance. The last few chapters felt too f...

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...

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

William Po: Enjoyed the characters and story of the USAF during WWII. Author seems knowledgeable about planes and situations faced by bomber personnel. Also the suffering the air war caused on both sides to civilians.

JWalker: I loved this story from start to finish! It flows at a really nice pace and the story world feels so real. The fight sequences are a treat especially when Isanfyre is training to become a warrior. I found the names really cool and thankfully easy to pronounce. Personally I have always struggled w...

Dina Husseini: It was a great hook. I do not like reading scifi because they end up being like all the rest but this one kept me wanting more.
