Madness is My Friend

By Mallory ₍⁽ˊᵕˋ⁾₎❆



“Death, I long for death.”

“Death? That whore? I suppose I could introduce you. We are old friends you know. But Death is nothing special, gets around to everyone. Ever heard of the Kiss of Death? Everybody receives it in their own time. I could very easily call him if you wish, but I have far greater plans for you.”

“Please, just leave me be.”

“No, no, no, don’t you see? You should be honored. You will meet Death in due time, as all do, but very few have the honor of befriending me. Many have claimed to have met me, have claimed I had them in my grasp, but very few have the honor of actually greeting me face to face. Stare, human, into the face of Madness, true Madness, and do not be afraid. I can be your friend if you allow it, or your worst enemy. I can offer you joy, an escape from this pain your sad pathetic life has dealt you. Do you really wish to run into Death’s embrace? Do you truly believe you will be free in it? No, boy, think again. I am freedom. Take my hand and you will be free forever.”

“Why? Why are you doing this?”

 “Because I wish to help you, my dear companion.”

“I’ll never be free.”

“Yes you will, friend, yes you will. All you must do is abandon your senses and trust in me. You shall indeed be free. Trust in your new friend Madness, I will take care of you.

Jade Jez: What a wonderful, immersive book from Eliott McKay. It starts with an air of mystery, introducing main character Michaela, the clumsy teenager. From there, it whisks you off your feet and dumps you into a beautifully written world where you can almost smell and hear everything happening. I go...

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.

ga1984: I really enjoyed it! Characters were deep and plot was pretty complex. A bit on the violent side but it doesnt detract from the story. Very dark but situations make sense. Ends kinda abruptly and later chapters will need some editing work. I'm assuming there's more in the works?

Warchief: The biggest problem with the Harry Potter series is that it's all from his point of view. So we never really get to see or understand events from other peoples perspective.
