The Quill Chronicles

By Storycollector

Fantasy / Adventure

331 BC

331 BC

The tent was filled with high ranked officers of the Macedonian king's army. Mostly Greeks but there were also Egyptians and Persians. They all looked at their king and two men kneeling in front of the basileus.

The young king stood in all his pride, a physical god in his gilded armour and surrounded by aura of power and invincibility. When he spoke up, the whole world listened for he was making history.

"For your loyalty, bravery and your services to the crown, I hereby proclaim you to be the rulers of the lands beyond the veil, the kings of the realm of myths. Your title shall be bibliobasileos. You shall bow to no one except to me and my descendants. Stand up, Miltiades and Aigidion, bibliobasileos, lords of the storyworld."

After the ceremony he took them to his personal chambers in the largest house prepared especially for the young ruler. He poured them delicious wine and after the toast he stepped on to his balcony. Down under was a small but buzzing town. Alexander looked to the horizon and made a wide circle with his hand.

"One day there will be a great city. And in this city will stand a library. The greatest library the world has ever seen and I want you to establish the same place in the other world. It will be the haven of knowledge and power, its fortunes will amaze generations to come. It will connect both worlds and it will help me on my journey to become the supreme ruler of all worlds. Just as the prophecy says. You shall help me build it. I feel the destiny itself has made our paths to cross." "As you wish, our king," said the brothers in unison. They laughed as their returned to celebrate with other officers.


Characters and Narrators, Readers and Authors. All of them are important for a story, but there are those who, too, have their place in the genreworlds. Stories need their library and every library (and especially THE Library) needs its Librarians.

amarin8388: Bottom Line: I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys Science Fiction. During my reading, I thought many times that this would make a good story for a movie.

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...

Erin Crowley: The concept here is really strong, but the execution is definitely lacking. Tenses, grammar, etc are all off, with at least one or more errors per 'Page' on my phone. The writing style is almost broken- sentences move into each other awkwardly, and are filled with an excess of "filler words", lik...

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...
