From Darkness

By Lost_Diadem All Rights Reserved ©

Romance / Drama


A story of love in times of darkness, of all kinds of love. This is the story of Ivy and her loved ones before the Second World War in Nazi Germany. They say history was written by the victors, but what about the history of the defeated? See the unseen side of history, through the Germans' eyes. Ivy is a conflicted girl who, along with those around her, goes through one of the darkest periods of human history. To survive, they must make the ultimate sacrifices for love, family, friendship, acceptance, war, safety, and happiness. This is the first book, the beginning. They came from darkness.

A book for a mature audience. It contains mature content and language.

This story is realistically reflective of the era it is set in, and therefore it’s a sensitive topic. The reader is cautioned about the delicate nature of the story. It may be too offensive, discriminating, and troubling for some to read. Please keep an open mind, especially towards its main characters. It’s not only a reflection of its era, but also a reflection of human nature.

This is a work of fiction. All characters are fictional, with the exception of some well-known historical figures and any other specified characters. The historical events and facts are real, if you have any concerns or questions regarding them, or regarding the story, I would gladly discuss them.

While I will keep it as historically accurate as the story allows, this book isn’t meant to serve as a historical guide nor reflect my point of view, opinions, and thoughts on such a dark time in human history.

Everyone knows about the concentration camps and the genocide, which is only a small side of The Second World War’s history, but not many know about the entire story. I cannot attempt to tell it all, but I do hope that with this book and its successors I can some day break the unfair connection that exists between the words Germans and Nazis. Not to try to diminish the events of the past, but to shed light upon the whole truth.

Thank you for your feedback & thank you for reading.

MavisMcQueen: "To Live Again" is a well crafted, highly engaging, heart vibrating tale surrounding our favorite Elven King.

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.
