1.Fern

The boy who stood before Bres, decked out in green with blonde hair and sword drawn couldn’t have been older than six, but his glare of determination and appearance reminded Bres of someone much older, someone from his past. The resemblance and piercing glare was unsettling. Ever since that human had bested him and imprisoned him in this realm, Bres had been afraid of him, though he didn’t like to admit it. He had never expected to see him again, not in this world. It was technically a prison, but it was also his home. He controlled who could enter, and he only let children enter, children too young to be able to defeat him, but old enough to play with. Bres vanished from sight. They boy scanned the room, turning in circles, trying to find Bres.

“Show yourself!” the boy demanded. Bres’s laugh echoed throughout the great hall. He materialized on the boy’s right side.

“Did you miss my pretty face?” he asked, his tongue extremely close to the boy’s ear. The boy turned fast and Bres’s tongue swiped across his face.

“My name is Fern, and I will kill you, monster,” the boy declared.

“With a wooden sword? That hardly seems likely.”

“It doesn’t matter what it’s made of, so long as it pierces your heart.” Fern lunged at Bres, thrusting the tip of the wooden blade towards the Demon Lord’s heart. Bres simply raised his hand and the weapon vanished into a cloud of diamonds. The boy stared at him.

“What have you done with my sword?”

“It’s up there, Dearie,” he said, pointing to the chandelier which hung about high above their heads. “You can’t reach it.”

“You watch me,” Fern said as he grabbed the drapes and began to climb. After he had successfully tore the curtains and given the wall a big hug, Bres tried to talk some sense into the deluded child.

“You foolish boy, come back down before you hurt yourself.”

“If I were you, I’d worry more about your safety than mine,” he explained as he climbed one more foot and grasped around desperately for a handhold. Bres teleported over to Fern on the wall and the shocked boy let go. Even after he fell, the stubborn child refused to scream and instead simply shut his eyes and let his body go limp. He didn’t have long to fall, however, because at that moment, a temporary floor composed of orange diamonds appeared directly below him. It slowly lowered him to the floor. Fern was confused. Bres was not pleased. He drew his own metal dagger with his right hand and gripped Fern’s neck with his other. Not tightly enough to choke him, but enough to ensure that he wouldn’t be able to escape.

“I told you that you couldn’t reach it. Did you think that I was lying to you?”

"I don't see any reason why you wouldn't, monster." Bres smiled.

"There are two things that you need to know." Fern stood as still as he could as Bres made an incision on the back of Fern's forearm. "Firstly, my name is Lord Bres, but you may call master." Blood poured from the cut and began to stain Fern's sleeve. "Secondly, I have been many things in my life: murderer, prostitute, thief. And that was all during the single digit years of my life." Bres smiled, tore away the sleeve, and ran his tongue along the boy's arm, licking up the blood and leaving a trail of saliva on the wound. "But I'm no liar." Then he drew back, snapped his fingers, and sent the boy away to a dungeon cell in the cave of shadows (when you are stranded in your own world, it only makes since to give everything a fabulous name).

Marimar Amieva: Although I found the vampire thing a bit too much, I couldn't stop reading it. The story had a bit of everything: mystery, romance, a huge plot twist and relatable characters. I congratulate the author for this story and hope to read more of whatever he writes.

noelia herrera: I could not stop reading this book. it was truly great and it caught my attention quick. there was some misspelled words and some misplaced. but overall, IT WAS FANTASTIC! great job. I recommended this book to all my family and friends.

Arabella: The catchy blurb caught my attention. The story is creepy but I would not qualify it as a horror story. The characters are likeable and I’m impatiently waiting for new stories from Obsidian Fae.

Tiffany Thomson: This story is not something I would normally pick up and read but I'm so glad I did, I wasn't able to put it down and my husband was yelling at me at 3am to put it down and go to bed (just waited for him to doze back off before picking it back up) I really hope Natalie brings out another book eit...

Deleted User: (A review in progress). I like this. It's sparse, gritty and atmospheric - reminiscent of the classic Golden Age of American detective fiction of the Thirties. I've only read the beginning, but I'll definitely be back. This writer knows their stuff and has done their homework on detective work. T...

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

skippybash12: This story has engaging characters that you care about and a plot that is unpredictable and exciting. It is well written with a believable voice. Great weekend escape and if there was a sequel available I would buy it today -

Dru83: This is probably the fourth time I've read this one. I read this a few times on fictionpress as dru83. This is a wonderful story. It still needs a lot of shining up as there are many instances of punctuation issues, grammar issues, and issues with using the wrong word. But all that still can't ta...

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

Shifa Gohar: this book is my first on inkitt and I love it thoroughly...but i guess this is not the end. The characters were amazing the plot too. At times it scared me more than a horror movie would. Love the plot something i had not read in a while.
