Chapter 1: The Beginning

“Rise up, rise up! Soldier, hunter . Bearer of the earth, you will rise again : Arise, take the souls of those who wish to steal you away from the moon. Destroy not the people that seek thy life. Rise from the death of the innocent. Get up. Rise and arise from the dead, and the life of the dying and the dying mother . Take the souls of the worshipers.”


The words burn in all parts of my body, never have I felt such horrible pain. Fire and words crawl across my eyes, mind, and soul. I can see men and women on there knees, mouths moving. Children lay dead before them, throats slit wide open.

“Get up , get up! You shall rise again: Arise, and take the souls of those who wish to lock you away. Arise. Awake, and arise from the dead, and the life of the dying and the death of the mother. Take the souls of the worshipers."

My mouth opens and closes desperately trying to scream out. My head turns, it moves slowly like its stuck in a thick liquid. I watch as the women slide knifes across there own throats, blood flowing out like a horrible waterfall. My hand reaches out, slowly. Wiggling my fingers I realize that the skin has mostly melted off, leaving charred bone.

"Awake, awake, stand up, stand up, Rise up, and take the world. Arise. Awake, and arise from the dead, and the life of the dying . Take on the worshipers!”


My eyes are open looking into a world of colors I've never seen or even imagined. I bring my hands up to my face, the skin is there but its like clear water. The veins are dark woven colors and words are moving up and down them. Looking up I see a women with impossibly long hair, worlds and galaxies braided into it. Shes all I see. Her hand traces the veins on my face as she moves closer.

Now I'm walking along next to a gold river. The women stands on the other side. Holding hands we walk for what seems like eternity.

I'm falling back, back into a silver fire. Hellfire, my creation, my child, being used to cage me. I see her face and her hair with the galaxies woven in. Rage fills my body, a scream rips through my throat. My hands fly up grabbing the nearest thing and pulling it in. Humans, her creation, her child. So small, so soft, simple, nothing but pureness, they are bound to her, to serve her. Pressing my finger into the there souls I create there freedom and there shackles. Whispering fear, rage, envy, greed, hate, lust, and knowledge into there blackened souls, I have created there freedom and there shackles. Releasing them I sink into the cage that will hold me for all eternity.

matrixmark: I thought that the introduction to this was relly well written and structurally sound in its presentation.The introduction to the cabin in the woods was good too. To me, it felt like a Blair Witch of yesteryear, but the things which you added in about the mutilated boys were certainly something n...

harry142018: This story was gripping and very professionally written. With lots of twists and slight of hand tricks, the author deceives the reader until finally showing their cards at the end. With several subplots all intertwining to create the main plot, this really is an interesting and engaging read.

Kashaf Azmat: The concept is excellent everything is well defined that you can picture the whole scenario which makes you feel connected to the plot and this is the thing that catches my eye and this what i am looking for in every novel.Keep it up

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!

Althea Kerr: This is a tale that is all too familiar to South African readers having lived through a war era on our borders and beyond. It is obviously autobiographical as the mind under duress is so detailed and real. It has fantastic suspense if a bit disjointed - perhaps that is the fear and loneliness com...

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

nikole carr: After starting and stopping several books tonight, this book caught my attention from the very beginning and i stayed up until 6 a.m. to finish reading. The plot has many twists and the sexual scenes keep it interesting, too. im a florida native so the Caribbean location is fun to read about. th...

rachelrainford6: This probably has to be one of the best books I've read on here. I read it quite quickly and I'll have to say the story took a turn towards the end that I did not see coming. The topic discussed in this book such as life really gave me a new insight and I realize that it is taken for granted.

Kaitlyn Bier: This is a great story! I love how well you go into detail and emotions of Capri, and Mel. You have amazing dialogue and overall it's just a thrill to read!The only critique I could find is that some of the paragraphs should be separated. For example:-"If Nia would have just let me take the car an...

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.

Ali Albazaz: I started reading "Caged" few hours ago and I'm on chapter 7 now. Caged is definitely one of the most addictive stories I've ever read. Thank you so much for writing this novel.

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.
