The Arulant Mythos Book 1

By CthulhuGOS All Rights Reserved ©

Action / Adventure

Prologue

Alfred Madaraba was a normal kid in an abnormal world, he was a short brown haired kid with pale skin and a penchant for getting himself into trouble. His mother was Alia Anne Madaraba, the american wife of his rather successful father Susumu Madaraba. Who was a scientist who was studying the impact of the Mythos Deities on their world now that they had come and been sealed away into the 7 Pillars. Now the Arulant walk the earth, children born after the sealing with special powers linked to the Mythos Deities and other works of Lovecraftian Lore.

Alfred was not one of those kids, at least he didn’t think he was, he had never shown any kind of special power beyond being an avid reader since he had turned 4 and he’d never been sent an invitation to join one of the many schools that now littered the world, training the Arulant in combat as well as keeping them safe from prejudice and teaching them all they would need to know to survive in the world.

Alfred panted as he ran through alleyways on the way to his perfectly normal school in his perfectly normal neighborhood, he would be late again he knew. It was always like this, he would sleep in while his parents were gone on some trip to study some new Arulant in the world and he would always end up at school late, peice of bread hanging from his mouth as he jogged. He picked up speed and jumped, grabbing onto the top of the wall of some Arulant school near his house and vaulted over it.

He, however, was not expecting to land in the middle of two Arulant teens fighting and to see a fiery sword being swung at him from one side, while a silvery blade with jagged teeth swung from the other, his brain began running through what he could do, could he dodge? no, they were moving to fast and the Arulants wouldn’t be able to stop their swings in time now, he squeezed his eyes shut and shouted, before he felt nothing, no searing heat burning his flesh, and no blade cutting into him, slicing at muscle tissue as he expected.

He heard the muted whispers as he opened one eye and looked towards the people who had almost killed him, and two huge books, seemingly bound in human skin had appeared to intercept the blades on their pages, the eye on the front of each opened, blinked, and glowed. “Install Complete.” He abruptly passed out.

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 ...

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...

littlebunnypoopoos: Omg this was so amazing! The ending was a little bad and predictable. But otherwise, I need a second book or I'll die :D The character development was excellent and the whole romance, action, and suspense was superb

rudyoxborough46: An action-packed, mystical adventure awaits anyone wishing to read this novel. I’m amazed at how well you’ve managed to flesh out the characters in this book, and I hope to read more of your work.I’ve read books about goblins and elves and all that mumbo-jumbo before, and most accounts of these c...

Dru83: This is the second or third time I've read this one and I just love it. It has just about everything you could ever want packed into one scifi story. It still has some parts that are a little rough in terms of grammar, punctuation, and word usage, but it's still an awesome story. I love how detai...

Jason Phang: I'm pretty new to Inkitt (this is only my 4th book) and I must say I've been thoroughly impressed by the quality of the authors here. Remnants of Chaos is an excellently written book that hooks the reader, and doesn't let go. There are some grammatical and typographical errors, but nothing too se...

sujitha nair: What's so distinct about this story was that it could easily be real. Praveena can be your classmate, neighbor or that girl you saw at the coffee shop today. The important decisions she makes and the dilemmas she faces, remind us of our own twisted lives.

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

Olivia N J Hamel: I want this book. I love it so much. It is so enjoyable to read and to have a copy of this always, I would be very happy, to always be able to come back and look at it again.

JWalker: I loved this story from start to finish! It flows at a really nice pace and the story world feels so real. The fight sequences are a treat especially when Isanfyre is training to become a warrior. I found the names really cool and thankfully easy to pronounce. Personally I have always struggled w...

makaylakay: I love love this story! It's written incredibly and well thought-out plot! I love how it's a different twist in fantasy fiction, other then the usual vampire or werewolves. Love the romantics and drawn to the two characters so much already! This book will draw you in within the first chapter and ...

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...

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!
