Fighting Light and Darkness

By Midna_Azusa

Fantasy / Adventure

Prologue

King Kenta Yuki—or Haou, as his people called him—paced anxiously, his green eyes bright with worry. He had been doing so for hours, waiting for word on his wife and their unborn child. As Neo Space was highly advanced, he wasn't worried about their safety—at least, that was what he said. His longtime friend, Henri, could tell that Kenta wasn't being totally honest.

"Kenta, calm down. I'm sure Hikari is fine, and the little one will be strong and healthy, just like his father."

Finally Kenta stopped pacing. "You're right, Henri," he sighed, running a hand through his dark brown hair. "I'm sure you are. It's just that this is a first for me. My first-born child is on the way. I can't help but be a little anxious."

Henri smiled and said, "I was the same way when my boy Johan was born."

Just then the doctor, a dark-skinned man in his mid-forties, approached the two men. "Sire, your child has been born. Congratulations, it's a boy."

"How is Hikari?" Kenta asked.

"Don't worry, my king, the queen is just fine. So is the boy," he added pointedly.

Kenta nodded. "Good. Then bring me my son."

The doctor bowed and took his leave, returning to the queen's chambers.

Henri smiled at his friend, walking over to stand beside him, and said, "Congratulations. I suppose this means that Johan will have a new playmate, then?"

"Of course, my friend," Kenta answered, smiling broadly at the foreigner. "I wouldn't have it any other way."

ArgyrisMetaxas: Thrilling story which builds layer ontop of layer. A few mis spellings every few chapters. What I found special was that it took a modern day problem and took it to its logical conclusion and plays this realism with gritting precision. I'm always on edge ready to shout from adrenaline. This is gr...

Nymeria: Really can't get enough of this story. It flows well, it captivates the reader from page 1, and throws you into such a well-written, well conceptualized world that you'll believe it's real.

Shifa Gohar: this book is my first on inkitt and I love it thoroughly...but i guess this is not the end. The characters were amazing the plot too. At times it scared me more than a horror movie would. Love the plot something i had not read in a while.

heavyreader: great scifi novels but needs a better spell checker (check auto-substitution level) and grammar checker!!! otherwise, ready for mass market publishing!!

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...

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...

ernbelle: When I first started this story I was a little unsettled by all of the information that appears in the prologue, and wasn't sure if I would continue. However, I am very glad I did. The plot was very well thought out and really interesting. There were not any page breaks or markers to acknowledge ...

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...

Christopher Chew: Been a while since reading was this fun. The plot was easy to follow and built at a gradual but good pace. The dynamics between each character were interesting and kept things fresh and exciting, very much so that you would forgive it for not going deeper into the back stories of each character. ...

Felisa Yoder Osburn: I really enjoyed the story. Civil War stories are some of my favorites and the intertwining of the past with current times was wonderful. I look forward to reading the next stories.

Arabella: The catchy blurb caught my attention. The story is creepy but I would not qualify it as a horror story. The characters are likeable and I’m impatiently waiting for new stories from Obsidian Fae.

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...
