Lost Cause: The Magic Plague

By Sebastiun Edward Trapuzzano

Thriller / Fantasy

Prologue

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.

CookieMonster911: The story overall was an adventure that is appealing to any age. The way the characters develop adds a more human characteristic to the novel. The writing style itself is amazing because you can learn every character's thoughts and emotions. The awkward love triangle and jerk moments adds to the ...

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...

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. It reminded me of the StarWars movie franchise, not because of the plot but because of the diversity of chara...

nikole carr: After starting and stopping several books tonight, this book caught my attention from the very beginning and i stayed up until 6 a.m. to finish reading. The plot has many twists and the sexual scenes keep it interesting, too. im a florida native so the Caribbean location is fun to read about. th...

maewilde25: I am so in love with this story!!! captivated me till the very end, there wasn't a dull moment. Didn't particularly enjoy the lay out and some bits of info was missing along with how a 21 year old man amassed so much wealth that needed to be explained other than that and a few spelling errors, th...

Althea Kerr: This is a tale that is all too familiar to South African readers having lived through a war era on our borders and beyond. It is obviously autobiographical as the mind under duress is so detailed and real. It has fantastic suspense if a bit disjointed - perhaps that is the fear and loneliness com...

Lauren Sanby: This is an excellent story. Very gripping and keeps your attention throughout. Hoping the author is writing a sequel because I'd love to read more about Rhi and Andreas and find out what else Rhi is able to do with her powers.

SPepper: I had a hard time putting this book down even to go to sleep. The story is compelling and beautifully character driven. I hope author will make this a series.

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...

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...

Rachel Mc Donald: This was an awesome book a real page turner couldn't put it down . The characters all had a good back story . I love these kind of books and would read it if you decided to write a follow up book . Excellent work

Marimar Amieva: I just can't believe the story! I absolutely loved it, all of it. The characters and their chemistry between them, and the fact that they are relatable. The story also has some sick plot twists, which I never saw coming. I loved the fact that it is an adorable love story but has its mystery touc...

Laraine Smith: Your story is both sweet and beautiful! You are a true artist! Keep up the great work! I also love the picture that you chose for your book! :)

borkarprasad: Nicely laid story. Needed a little more ghost and Raven conversations. Initially, Had everyone on suspect list but satisfied by the precision to capture the killer. Waiting for more Raven and Cade adventures.
