Dark and Light

By badguthrie

Romance / Fantasy


Dark. It's so dark. And cold. Alone. I'm so alone. Help. Dark. Cold... Sparkkit is blind-but she wasn't always like that. She used to be normal. Then a fire came and everything she knew was taken away from her. How can she be a Warrior and defend her Clan, when they don't even accept her? Can her newfound friend help, or will he leave her like the others? Will she cope, or go mad? It isn't Smokepaw's fault that he isn't his sister Sagepaw. It wasn't his fault that sometimes his Clan doesn't let him eat because he can't hunt. It isn't his fault that he can't be like Sagepaw; that he isn't that good. But then Smokepaw met Sparkkit. Then Sparkkit met Smokepaw. Can the two help each other accept themselves? Will Sparkkit dismiss me for just another weak-link? Will Smokepaw scorn me like the others? Follow these two cats through their journey. Through hardship, fear, darkness, love, and friendship, this is a story to remember.

John Reed: Seadrias masterfully captures the impressiveness and complex scope that a science fiction novel should provide while carefully crafting an entire universe that will leave a reader in awe from start to finish. The only flaw I could find is that I wish I could have read more. This book is certainly...

Julia Summers PA: Reading this now. It's fun, hilariously fabulous yet taste of what you desire in a unusual read. I will post an actual review when I am finished. But so far loving the flow and the story seems to keep me drawn

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?

FateFellShort: I have read this story and have followed the writers on tumblr from the beginning. Its a wonderful story. Beautifully written with a really nice pace, that makes it enjoyable to read more than once. For me, fairy tail has very good characters but what the writers have done is give them more depth...

Jean Tryon: As a beta, I found this story outstanding!! Plot, grammar, phraseology, etc Rachel gives us it all. She takes the story into the future from where due South ends. She is an exacting and thoughtful author.

neil101: The best story I have read online in quite some time. The casual violence is tamed down with easy going wit. It reads like a Joe Abercrombie novel .Looking forward to more. Thanks.

Alex Reltin: This is a great story! I love how well you go into detail and emotions of Capri, and Mel. You have amazing dialogue and overall it's just a thrill to read!The only critique I could find is that some of the paragraphs should be separated. For example:-"If Nia would have just let me take the car an...

rajastreet: I enjoyed this piece! I loved the treatment of time and the premise! Some of the wording seemed a little out of place, but easily overlooked for a good a plot.
