Mystery / Adventure

How it all began...

Dear Diary, My name is Moana. Moana Felicía, that is my real name. From my old family When I was younger I belonged to a happy family,my real family died in a tragic accident one day. I was out walking in the park with my nanny. There was a gas leak at the house and everything exploded. Gone. Suddenly there was a house and the next moment there was rubble and my parents were no longer there. After that I got put into a care home, I was only 5, it was terrifying. I was so scared and I missed my family terribly. I cried most nights. Then a couple of months later I got adopted by a rich family they also adopted a little boy called Leo he was a good friend....

Leo and I got on really well. He had also suffered a tragic loss. His parents had died in a car accident. Leo was 6 and I was still 5, Leo was also a very smart boy. He almost felt like a brother to me. We would play rope, skipping,dolls,pretend wedding all day.We ever very shocked and really extremly happy when we got adopted together. We got adopted by a really rich family The Richmonds when we got there we were in a big shock. The Richmonds Family lived in a grand house and they had alot of servants and maids. The place was flooded with them. The Richmonds were a very rich couple. Filthy rich. Along with there great riches, came there full and pure greediness. They always wanted more and more. This family never felt as mytruly beloved family. I miss them terribly.

I am actually re-living this memory. I’m writing this 5 years after I got kidnapped. It was a terrible ordeal. I am writing this so I remember my life. So I remember how it felt before... Before I became different. My life feels backwards now. Things have changed. I don’t age, I cannot go outside until it is dark, or use potions in the morning but it hurts me. There are so many draw backs. It was a different life back then, a different time.

Felisa Yoder Osburn: I really enjoyed the story. Civil War stories are some of my favorites and the intertwining of the past with current times was wonderful. I look forward to reading the next stories.

Jessica Esa: With a tantalising end to the first chapter, the authour has given us a treat and a welcome addition to the fantasy adventure genre. To limit it to just such would be an injustice however, as this novel clearly draws on elements of historical fiction, fairy tale and horror. Simply, there's someth...

Sara Grover: When I first started reading, it was a bit slow; though only because it was so information intense and fast-paced in trying to describe how this complex galactic corporation/government like entity controls known space. I would suggest maybe adding a preface to better educate the reader to help av...

Atractivo Sumit: The story is an amazing blend of what we call natural, plain romance along with subtle emotions and interesting twists. The plot is so beautifully interwoven.

smile4me: Exciting page turner. I was barely able to put it down to go to bed. I can usually figure out the twists before they are revealed but not this time! Such a thrill to be surprised. I can hardly wait for the follow up!!

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly. I do not believe the author put the apostrophes in the names just to be unique, but because the characters are supposedly of a different race than humans. They are Anmah. They should have different names a...

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...

Hali McGowan: when will the third book be done? I am absolutely hooked. I red the first two books within less than a week. I'm itching for the third one. The plotline is absolutely wonderful. I've never been much for sci-fi ish books. but you've got me hooked on this series

Laraine Smith: You are a true artist! You should do this for a living! I love the imagery here! It is magical! You are magical!

Giuliana Cassetta: My face is full of tears, I never cried like now with a book or even a movie. I loved every single chapter. I truly don't know what to say, I'm out of words and my eyes hurt from crying. Such an bittersweet story, it's so wonderful. One of my favorites for sure. Keep it up!
