Lost Cause: The Magic Plague

By Sebastiun Edward Trapuzzano

Thriller / Fantasy


It was a sickness. Not a illness, or household cough... it was a plague. The Magic Plague was a horror story... something the muggles would call an apocalypse. The only thing I would call it...

Is hell.

My first loss was my mother... Madeline. It was my father who cut her down... attack magic had been destroyed by then. No matter how much he tried to heal her, she just got angrier and stronger. Mottled flesh, horrible smell... it was like a scene out of The Walking Dead. Laugh if you want, I liked that show, even if the muggles made it. I always watched it, and sometimes... it was stupid, but I would want to be in that world. A survivor. A warrior.

Now I just wish I had died sooner.

I expect by the end of this book I will be dead, so I will explain it at least... maybe have the possibility of someone finding it and having a laugh. I know how this all started, though... so maybe it will help.

It started with the death of some evil dark wiz, everyone thought he was the end of the world. That was before this happened... now everyone who thought that is dead. Most called him Voldemort, but his name was Tom... Riddle, I think. Whatever.

Anyway, he was killed by this innocent guy named Harry... the kind of guy who wouldn't last 2 seconds in this world, unless he was a Dancer. Don't let me get started on what that is, you'll know soon enough... but anyway, he was the man who defeated Tom. Couldn't kill the guy, so he rebounded his own curse back into him. Humiliating way to die, I gotta say. When he died, there was a curse released from his body, something that decimated magic and plagued it relentlessly. Starting slowly, but happening fast and sickening us all. We're all infected... says Rick Grimes. I laughed at his words in that time. It seems he was smarter than us, now that I think.

So yes, Rick.

We are.

Drew C. Elyon: I've only read one chapter so far, but from what I've seen, this is steampunk at its best. The narrative flows so beautifully I could envision every scene in an almost cinematic fashion. I believe in the complexity of simplicity, and this story has that in its descriptions.

Marijana1: The melancholy present throughout this story has the power to influence and etch into the minds of the readers, to stay there and refuse to leave even after they have finished reading the story. This is a deep, powerful story, making the readers wonder about everything – about love, about their e...

BambooQueen: I seriously loved this story so much. I think it only took me two days... I wanted to yell at all the characters at least once. The build up was amazing too! I also was really surprised at the ending with the cliffhanger. Much luck!

Robert D. Stanley: I really liked this story. The main character was very well fleshed out (so much so that I sometimes felt sorry for her friends with how little trust she had in them) and your descriptive writing was very good. There are, however a few points I'd like to critique.1. The dual PoVs were interesting...

Cliuin: I couldn't stop reading from the moment that I started this book and that was some hours ago...

SeanSavage: Good plot that moves fairly quickly. Time passage somewhat vague. but not indecipherable. Very good syntax, grammar and punctuation. The story flowed very well, however, the breaks between chapters and the time jumps tended to be slightly confusing at first. I could see where the author was going...

Nanasha: I thought I'd written a comment on this story, but for some reason, I guess it didn't go through. Anyway, so this story is intensely addictive. I liked how the author uses established mythology but then gives it a unique twist. The idea of goblins all coming from the head of the king is an ama...

mray2174: I did like this story. I would totally recommend it to a friend, but it didn't seem like a book. Your writing style reminded me of a fan fiction writer, always adding in tiny details and making things like "Oh, my name is [name that no one would ever name a child] and here is my life story. Oh, d...
