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.

CookieMonster911: The story overall was an adventure that is appealing to any age. The way the characters develop adds a more human characteristic to the novel. The writing style itself is amazing because you can learn every character's thoughts and emotions. The awkward love triangle and jerk moments adds to the ...

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...

Lydia Walters: I really enjoyed this novel. It gives us a view of what could be if we really tried.Also that there's nothing wrong with loving our LORD and our fellow humans. couldn't wait to get to each new chapter (mission). Thanks, Joe!

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...

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.

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...

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...

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 ...

re8622: The Last Exodus quickly grabbed my attention. Almost as soon as I started reading the story, I couldn't put it down.

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.
