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.

matrixmark: I thought that the introduction to this was relly well written and structurally sound in its presentation.The introduction to the cabin in the woods was good too. To me, it felt like a Blair Witch of yesteryear, but the things which you added in about the mutilated boys were certainly something n...

Shweta Somwanshi: I just chose to read this out of nowhere and now I can't stop. Hats off to the author who made the reader swoon away with words so beautifully!

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! :)

Bri Hoffer: I couldn't put it down!! The characters are all incredibly likable, and it's so descriptive you can see, smell, and feel thier surroundings. Great story, and very well written. I cannot wait for follow up stories. there were a few grammatical errors, but nothing that I could move right over.

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 ...

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

Alex Rushmer: This was not what I expected, but I enjoyed it a lot Malfoy was always one of the characters that I liked a lot, so I like that a lot of this happens between him and Colette. I read the first couple chapters, and I enjoyed your writing style and am excited to see where you take this story. My com...

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...

Kevin Brand: My overall rating: 4.8/5 starsLoved. Every. Second. Everytime I came back to continue reading I got this overwhelming feeling of getting hooked on the first sentence... Over and over and again!The only things that were missing for me include more descriptions on what happens when Reuben touches s...

harry142018: This story was gripping and very professionally written. With lots of twists and slight of hand tricks, the author deceives the reader until finally showing their cards at the end. With several subplots all intertwining to create the main plot, this really is an interesting and engaging read.

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...
