Prologue

It is the year MSCHJ-76 (Modernised-Scientific-Calendar-of-Hubris-Jaeger): 76 years after the outbreak of the manmade super-virus KJU1B1x created during the Scientific Boom in what later became known as the Virus War. First produced by the Unified Kingdom of Korea (UKK) under the rule of Kim Jong Un-8653 in defiance to the Anti-Biochemical Warfare Code and further enhanced by the combined efforts of the United State of the New Soviet Union (USNSU) and the Republic Frontier Kingdom (RFK) – once known as Africa.

KJU1B1x was radioactively enhanced and was soon resistant to all known anti-viral drugs. In an effort to keep the KJU1B1x super-virus contained, The New Republic of Singapore (TNRS) and the European Domain (ED) organised a stealth mission to remove the super-virus from the RFK, only to have it get released by the RFK in retaliation.

KJU1B1x was immediately contained in RFK by sinking the continent into the sea. The various governments enforced strict travel bans and shut down all borders within their country lines in an effort to prevent the spread of KJU1B1x.

Even after the drastic measures that were undertaken to keep KJU1B1x contained, it took 6 years for the first symptoms to finally appear.

It was barely noticeable at first: children born after the virus was released, started to lose their sight early into life. It started out with cataract-like formations over the irises – these were able to be surgically removed -, followed by irreversible ulceration of the cornea and clouding of the pupils. The population born after the outbreak were slowly going blind with the younger generations losing the ability to see immediately after birth.

As the years went by, the older generation were left to wither and die away without being able to explain to their off-springs what Seeing was. They could not explain the rising of the sun nor the crashing of the waves. They could not describe the green grass or the yellow of the stars.

How do you explain to someone, things they have never seen nor ever will see?

And in MSCHJ-76x1225, the very last of the Seeing People died leaving behind a world of darkness.



This is but an expression of interest! The plot came to me one night but as it is nearing my final exams, I am unable to actually start on it.

Please, do tell me your thoughts on this and if it is interesting enough for you to actually want to continue reading this (should I ever get the time to pen it down properly).

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...

Stephen Warner: To start off, I am thoroughly impressed. The writing style is somewhat unique, and the plot seemed to move at a nice and steady pace. However, I was not expecting this to be a vampire book! I am usually not one for novels about vampires, but I was pleasantly surprised! You wrote with such grace a...

Laraine Smith: Your story is both sweet and beautiful! You are a true artist! Keep up the great work! I also love the picture that you chose for your book! :)

ElusiveBadwolf: I loved this book so much! It's a shame that i already came to the end of this. I really enjoyed the story, and i liked it how everything became in the end. It was a great book and i can say that you are a great writer too. Keep it that way and i think you can make it in the writing business!

Sandra Estrada: I loved every minute of it and I thank my lucky stars that brought me to the story, it's been a whirlwind of emotions, plot twist after plot twist but I never got tired of them. Abby and Kade's story is a hard one to understand but once you're submerged in their story and love, you can't help but...

Samantha Speed: There were several punctuation, grammar, and missing word problems but it did not detract from the story. This story was very well done, enjoyable, and had an interesting enough plot. It took a while to finish. This story is not complete. I love it, but I want to see another book or have more cha...

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...

maewilde25: I liked this, though it dragged on for over 200pages and heaven knows I did not expect the plot twist in the middle. David being Cristiãn. I was wondering when he would show up and didn't know he was there all along. it looks like there should be a sequel, please let there be a sequel. I know the...

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 ...

maewilde25: I am so in love with this story!!! captivated me till the very end, there wasn't a dull moment. Didn't particularly enjoy the lay out and some bits of info was missing along with how a 21 year old man amassed so much wealth that needed to be explained other than that and a few spelling errors, th...

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!

JONANNA: As an avid reader it is not often I say that about a book. The plot is what was different and the twists where unexpected. This book is defiantly a page turner and enjoyable read. I can't wait to reread this novel after a little editing to finish off the shine on this wonderful novel.

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 ...

Grapes Are Juicy yes!!!: I give this novel FIVE STARS ! This novel is worth reading from the beginning to the end! The plot and conflicts in this story are very smartly integrated. The language facility is a little odd , but i guess this was done on purpose, given the novel's set era. Other than that, this should definit...
