Illusion Of Years

By Kessapearl

Romance / Adventure

Prologue

A melody drifted across the world, the words lost in time. It was a melody that came often, but was never remembered. The inhabitants of the human realm all stopped to listen to the sound. It was light and melancholy but hopeful. It started with one. One girl rocking back on her heels, and letting words pour out. Then every human sang.

Look into the sky
Can you see the moon across the ocean
Coming close to me
I can hear the melody
Cry into the void
Let my voice become the hand that reaches
Out to you and leads
To my long lost memory
Carry me home
I lost my way on roads ever weaving
Home
Where darkness fades and hearts are ever believing
Carry me home
I close my eyes and cling to you ever dreaming
Find me
Oh don't forget the child for whom you are grieving
Voice that calls from there
And the footsteps of its fallen angels
Now becomes the beat
Of my heart so incomplete

As if it was timed, everyone stopped, the girl who started it was gone, but none noticed. They seemed to forget all about the song that was sung only seconds before.

High above the human realm, a palace of light was in turmoil. The sobs of a young girl were heard by every god, angel, and demon. the sound was unfamiliar to most, but all knew the origin. "Poor girl" they all murmured, feeling bad. But then it stopped.

Girl's POV

Why! why would he do t? I hate him! He's ruining my life! Those thought repeated over and over in her head. Her crying had gotten considerably louder, practically painting a target above her location. With a whisper of the wind, her head snapped up to see who had entered. "Mummy? What are you doing here? Papa will we displeased" The girl addressed the woman who was creeping closer to her.

"Hush, Mei. I have visited the Oracle and begged for her help. She gave me answers."

"What do you mean?" Mei wiped her tears.

"If you can find a human who loves you within eighteen years, you will be free from your fate." Mei's mother whispered softly.

"Thank you Mum. I must do this. I can't live like this." Her lips were quivering. She kissed her mother's cheek, spread open her wings and diapered into the human realm.

JONANNA: As an avid reader it is not often I say that about a book. The plot is what was different and the twists where unexpected. This book is defiantly a page turner and enjoyable read. I can't wait to reread this novel after a little editing to finish off the shine on this wonderful novel.

catd69: Karim is a very talented writer. When I started reading his journey it took me into the book and I was in the story till the end. I've never felt this way with any other writers stories. If you want to read a gripping adventure, this will be the one book I would suggest you pick.

themyronus: Vanessa has made 'amazing' the norme. I didn't want to read this as I am waiting for the finished and polished book to come out. But then I decided to read one chapter for kicks...well hours later I finished what was posted. Fortunately, my memory is not to good and I hope I will read the book wi...

Dave Baxter: Generally, a good story. The plot was a bit predictable but not overly so. The first bit might have been better if it instead focused on how the main character becomes a host and not with how humans first interact with the aliens. This might allow more recognition of the various transitions sh...

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...

Giuliana Cassetta: My face is full of tears, I never cried like now with a book or even a movie. I loved every single chapter. I truly don't know what to say, I'm out of words and my eyes hurt from crying. Such an bittersweet story, it's so wonderful. One of my favorites for sure. Keep it up!

Pille: I have never read a ... werewolf/urban fantasy/any other genre ... story with this brutal honesty about kidnapping and mafia. It was a chilling experience but you also managed to write it as the best thriller and also give it a happy end. I must praise you for the amazing writing skills you have...

Hawkebat: Playing both Kotor I & II and Swtor I found the story line interesting and it held me until chapter 35 Very good story and plot flow until then, very few technical errors. I felt that the main character was a bit under and over powered, as it fought for balance. The last few chapters felt too f...

mullikin902: Do not start reading this book unless you have enough time to finish it in one sitting, because you will not be able to put it down! Superlative! Addictive! Deliciously wicked characters you can't get enough of. Impatiently waiting for the sequel!

Books17: This is my first book review.I found the story to be very intriguing.The beginning of the story starts and you are immediately thrown into wanting to know what will happen next, The action, or intrigue is established early, so there isn't the feeling of the story dragging on, or thinking about wh...

OpheliaJones: This story took a different kind of spin on the "normal girl lives with definitely not normal guy" plot. The plot points of Frey's father, Liam's family, and Frey's view of Liam's world were good to read. She did not fall in love with him in the first couple weeks. Their lives were not smooth in ...

Nikki Landis: This is the first book in a series. Seems a few people have missed that. :)The sequel Dark Vengeance is available online. If you love vampires, twists, love and soulmates, then this book is for you. Enjoy!!!
