For Life and Death

By medusa1567

Adventure / Action

Prologue

The rain fell harder and only the frequent flashes of lightning that came from the sky could reveal the dark and mysterious young girl, who looked but the age of 10. She crouched by a gravestone of her beloved sister, whom the young girl had only lost a few months ago. The rain fell hard, but not hard enough to miss the potent taste or sound of sadness and pain in the air. The tears that escaped her eyes could only be seen streaming down her cheeks due to the long, black cloak that covered her eyes. The girl stood slowly, and gently placed a single, perfect rose on the tombstone before her. The white rose was placed so carefully one would have thought that the young girl had practiced this same ritual many times before. When the girl finally stood up to leave and started walking towards the village again, she turned around one last time to see the grave that she was abandoning. The wind blew against her and the drenched hood of the black cloak she was wearing rustled and lifted up slightly, revealing her eyes. For a second, to those who truly understood, the girl’s soul was shown. Those empty eyes, full of sorrow, hatred, and pain. But, of course, no one could really see what those eyes that held so much suffering and pain really meant, because no one truly understood how painful it was to have the gate to your soul shut for good. And with that, the young girl turned around and walked back to the village quietly.

littlebunnypoopoos: Omg this was so amazing! The ending was a little bad and predictable. But otherwise, I need a second book or I'll die :D The character development was excellent and the whole romance, action, and suspense was superb

Beau Bayot: I like the way the story is told and really engages the reader. In the daily life of a B17 Bomber Pilot that just happens to be a commander of an air-group, along with the hassles of keeping a bomber group running in peak performance during WW2. Banner should also consider himself lucky both at h...

snowview03: This is the first book I have read on this app and I loved it! When I read the title I thought about the hunger games, but this novel is so much more. Some book have a comparison between other books that fallow like premises so i will do my own: Arena has the compellingly emotional stresses and t...

Deleted User: It was a great hook. I do not like reading scifi because they end up being like all the rest but this one kept me wanting more.

debmart6901: I could not put this story down. I stayed up reading when I should have been in bed. could not get enough, could not wait to find how it ended. Great story telling. Great detail. Loved it. The characters were very vivid.

taosgw74: If this is the authors first attempt at writing, I'm floored. I was engrossed in the plot from the get go.

aaron10905: This is undoubtedly one of the best books written on here. I actually unistalled this app until someone told me about this story. I came back not expecting much, just to be drawn into the story and the characters. I would buy this book in real life, as long as another was promised shortly after.

JWalker: I loved this story from start to finish! It flows at a really nice pace and the story world feels so real. The fight sequences are a treat especially when Isanfyre is training to become a warrior. I found the names really cool and thankfully easy to pronounce. Personally I have always struggled w...

Jessica Esa: With a tantalising end to the first chapter, the authour has given us a treat and a welcome addition to the fantasy adventure genre. To limit it to just such would be an injustice however, as this novel clearly draws on elements of historical fiction, fairy tale and horror. Simply, there's someth...

makaylakay: I love love this story! It's written incredibly and well thought-out plot! I love how it's a different twist in fantasy fiction, other then the usual vampire or werewolves.

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...

Chevonne Prinsloo: I loved this book.. I didn't want to stop reading it! just my kind of book... I really love how the plot of the story carries along.
