''Mind, there is always something to achieve, something beyond the boundaries. Do not be afraid to brave new world, to step in boldly. Ultimately, those who never failed, never tried. Welcome to my realm.''

AWAKENING

''What?! What has just happened? Where am I? I don't know this city and there is nobody to even ask. The last moment that I can recollect was a falling flagstone that smashed my skull. Or I was shot? No, that is not it; I was run down by a vehicle. Oh, it doesn't matter anymore. So here I am, standing in the mist somewhere. Apparently, it's a city, as I see buildings, railroads, even cars. Weird, but I don't see people.'' These were several thoughts that swiftly ran through my head at this instant. I saw nothing, but felt the humidity, perhaps it was an early morning, since everything around has stopped its existence.

I have got nothing with myself, so that I decided to lead my way straight forward. While I have been crossing the void streets and tried to grasp where I am, suddenly I faced a signpost. Among all signs there was only one that could be seen, because all the rest were destroyed by the rust or just the paint started to decay. The city was modern, but it seemed that this signpost stood untouched since it has been placed, because I noticed a cobweb or something like this on it. I removed it and tried to read what was written there, since a fog was very thick it was complicated to read the sign. ''Uni... .'', oh. ''Universi-ty''. I knew that I am dead, so it wasn't a dream. But why such a torture has to chase me even after I passed away from the real life? Is not it the worst nightmare? I did not plead neither for Heaven or Hell, but did I deserve to study again? Life sucks even after death. ''Nothing doing'' was the phrase that I sighed out and moved in this direction.

I had a lot of questions to ask, but I did not find at least one person to inquire. Everything seemed a little bit abnormal and ridiculous at some angle, but at the same moment I was curious. So that, I, with the hope in my heart and the zeal in my eyes, marched towards unknown and mysterious. I just wanted to find a clue or at least a hint of what happened and where I appeared and with what purpose particularly I was chosen for this torment.

Finally, I reached the threshold of this enormous building, but I did not go in. I decided to wait for somebody else. ''Maybe I'm not the only lucky one here'', a drop of despair echoed in the void and misty entourage. Abruptly, I heard the rumble, clamour and noticed movement, as something launched the engine of the city and its inhabitants. I was ready to face this awakening. Since I died, I did not care much about what could happen, but with each second my heartbeat increased its pace. In the end, I have found out all that I wanted or at least all that I was allowed to know. But it took far more time than I imagined. After all it will appear that it was worth living through these years.

Shweta Somwanshi: I just chose to read this out of nowhere and now I can't stop. Hats off to the author who made the reader swoon away with words so beautifully!

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.

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...

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.

Alani Foreigner: I absolutely loved how you created this story. It isn't like the other cliché stories I've ever read. I had just started reading it yesterday and just had to finish it. The main characters are grotesquely awesome and I fell in love with them. If you're into fantasy and stuff I can guarantee that ...

LeahWrites: I love your use of writer's craft and how you use figurative language to enhance your writing. It great how you didn't have any spelling or grammar issues.

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...

Mourn8220House: When first reading "Avarice," I thought it would be another fairytale but I was taken back the author's approach and choice of ending. There is little to be said for the story and overall plot besides the sudden twists and speculation, other than that I do not want to ruin a fantastic tale, you m...
