The Perceived Threat

Prologue

If you’re reading this, be warned, the tale I am about to tell you is neither joyful, nor encouraging. It is a tale of sorrow and joy, loyalty and betrayal, love and heartbreak. Not all survive, but those who do, are never again the same…

The world of Monaterreth was once a peaceful and prosperous society, the many races united by the beloved Sayasha monarchy. But all of this changed when the war came. It started as a hiccup, a heartbeat…a gun shot. A war between the races, a war of the world. It lasted centuries, centuries of bloodshed and chaos that saw the fall of the monarchy and the rise of the democracy. But then, after two centuries of devision, a uniting factor arose, a common enemy:

The Gementites.

No one knows where they came from. No one knows what they are. But we do know what they want; destruction.

The Gementite monsters first appeared in the midst of the bloody war that had torn apart our world, once again bringing chaos upon the races of Monaterreth. The Gementites were attracted to electricity, feeding off of it and growing stronger. The first of the many attacks destroyed billions of lives, also obliterating any and all technology that ran on electricity...including weapons.

Cities fell into ruins, even the great floating city of Areya, home of the Sky People and Talons. 

Old steam powered engines, radios and first model airships were brought back into commission. Baser class vehicles such as motorcars and motorbikes were called out of retirement, becoming the main ways of transportation.

And after years of cowering in terror, hiding from the creatures of darkness in our own dark corners, we finally managed to form a response team made up of anyone from any race, each with their own ability and use. We fought back, formed rules and curfews, barely salvaging the last remnants of order and government…Three hundred years later, we have repaired and recovered, fending off the Gementites with tightly organized attack forces. 

But…things are changing. Something is coming, the Gementites are getting smarter, more organized.

But even more disturbing, the government is gaining a tighter hold. Curfews are earlier, distrust rises. Patrols now roam the cities, keeping an eye on everything and everyone. Rebellions have formed and no one is safe. Fear is tightly interwoven into everyday life as unease continues to grow. 

It’s like an inevitable explosion building, pressure rising, just waiting to be released. And I fear that when it is released, when time runs out, there will be no escape. 

This is your last chance to stop, to lay the book down and leave the tale be. For once you enter this world, you cannot leave until the last word has rung, until the last verse has been sung…

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

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...

Marijana1: The melancholy present throughout this story has the power to influence and etch into the minds of the readers, to stay there and refuse to leave even after they have finished reading the story. This is a deep, powerful story, making the readers wonder about everything – about love, about their e...

Jhiane Rabang: The story was so interesting. I loved how the story has plot twists that I can't expect. IT IS VERY HARD TO FIND A BOOK LIKE THIS so I suggest you read this book and I will tell you that it is worth every single second while you read this book. I can't wait to read the rest of the story.

Hudson: Your story was fantastic Erin! The Rising Sun was one of the first stories I read on Inkitt, and I have to say I don't regret the three to four days I spent pouring through the story.Probably the biggest strength I see in your writing is your characterisation of Eliana, Oriens, and the rest of th...

tsolaidowu: I want a continuation dammit....I loved this book and the 1st one. I can't believe this is it. I'm not ready to say goodbye to Jeff and Lorie; and the gang. Great book and storyline. You're a genius Madelyn.

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...

Bri Hoffer: I couldn't put it down!! The characters are all incredibly likable, and it's so descriptive you can see, smell, and feel thier surroundings. Great story, and very well written. I cannot wait for follow up stories. there were a few grammatical errors, but nothing that I could move right over.

Laraine Smith: This should be a movie! You are talented! It is that good! Keep it up! It is visual! It grabbed me! Don't give up!
