''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.

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...

Dru83: This is perhaps my favorite part of the Olafson story just because it is here that were are introduced to his "gang". The characters are so diverse and complicated that each of them could just about spawn their own story. Eric's buddies are just so captivating and the plot just rolls along. Again...

mullikin902: Do not start reading this book unless you have enough time to finish it in one sitting, because you will not be able to put it down! Superlative! Addictive! Deliciously wicked characters you can't get enough of. Impatiently waiting for the sequel!

themyronus: Vanessa has made 'amazing' the norme. I didn't want to read this as I am waiting for the finished and polished book to come out. But then I decided to read one chapter for kicks...well hours later I finished what was posted. Fortunately, my memory is not to good and I hope I will read the book wi...

Jason Phang: More, I want MORE! Your stories are keeping me from games and (gasp) even sleep! Each chapter brought fresh hooks that I willingly wolfed down (pun intended) and I just couldn't bear going to sleep not knowing what happens next to Lindsay and Wayne. I also loved how the epilogue was done. Excelle...
