''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.

SPepper: I had a hard time putting this book down even to go to sleep. The story is compelling and beautifully character driven. I hope author will make this a series.

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...

Hawkebat: Playing both Kotor I & II and Swtor I found the story line interesting and it held me until chapter 35 Very good story and plot flow until then, very few technical errors. I felt that the main character was a bit under and over powered, as it fought for balance. The last few chapters felt too f...

Alexis Dredd Zarcal: Overall, it's a rather thrilling piece, merging superstition, psychology, slice of life, and the usual Japanese risque fare. All the elements have rhyme and reason in being placed together.The respective background stories of the characters involved so far also give a sense of flair and thrill.I'...

Tiffany Thomson: This story is not something I would normally pick up and read but I'm so glad I did, I wasn't able to put it down and my husband was yelling at me at 3am to put it down and go to bed (just waited for him to doze back off before picking it back up) I really hope Natalie brings out another book eit...

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...

Rebecca Nollen: I absolutely loved this story!!! So exciting and the movement of the story was an absolute thrill ride. I hated the ending. I need the second book like tomorrow. Can't wait to share this story with my friends and daughter.
