Hope you enjoy this book :)

Chapter 1


“I promise you. I will teach you everything you have to know. I have come home”.

After a few days Ulysses comes back from practice with his son and walks up the stairs and says to Telemachus, “I can’t wait to tell your mother how well you did with my weapons” said Ulysses with excitement, “I know father i cant wait earthier cause i want to tell her how i'm just like you, i'm your twin, hahaha” said Telemachus with laughter. Finally as they reached the top of the stairs Ulysses opens the door and sees his wife lying there on the edge of the bed dead but shes still alive for now. Ulysses runs to Penelope and she whispers, “i love you so very much keep Telemachus safe for me please.”, says Penelope with tears filled with sadness. “ i will, i will, who did this too you” says Ulysses with anger.

“It was I Elpenor who did this to your beloved, you have struck me my brother and this is your punishment, I will now send you to the future along with your son hahaha”. So then Elpenor sent down a god and he transported Ulysses and his son Telemachus to the future in the timeline of 2016.


“Were are we, and what are all those things moving in the road” said Telemachus in confusion, “This is the future my son i don't know what anything is now” said Ulysses wondering what he should do. So Ulysses and Telemachus went to look around and understand there unusual surroundings that they have encountered. Later that Day they walked up to a girl and asked the girls name and she said “my name is Penelope Marie Erizel” said politely, Ulysses stared at her and remembers his wife named that but he knew it wasn't her. So Ulysses asked, “may we have a few pieces of paper that u guys think that are so important that you hold in your bags” said Ulysses, “you mean money ha ha, Sure how much would u like?” said the girl laughing “ we would like 1,000 please”, “well since i'm rich i mine as well give it away for someone in need, and that someone is dressed like the B.Cs ha ha here you go.”

“Thank you so very much my dear my love and peace be with you” said Ulysses very happy.“U mm OK sure” says the girl in confusion. After the got the money from the girl they see another girl that looks so familiar to them but they just don't know who it is, so the girl started to walk up to them and said, “Ulysses and Telemachus what are u doing here? your suppose to be in your timeline” says the girl Sequoya with confusion. “How do you know our names? And Elpenor sent us here for revenge.” said Ulysses with anger and slight confusion, “you wont know me i was the unknown god in Ithaca i kept myself a secret, And if you are trying to find your way back with money your wrong let me help you on your journey.” says Sequoya happy. “Shall it be lets go before it gets dark” ”silly its already dark if you haven't notice there is light everywhere to make it seem day and its not the fire kind of light its the futures kind of light hahaha”. So they went on a journey to find a way back to Ithaca in there time which then they realized that Elpenor didn't exist cause it was the future and there was no such thing as gods.


Telemachus, Ulysses, and Sequoya were walking for hours and hours and they finally ended up at a weird suspicious store, “this looks like some kind of voodoo store which has magic, this might be able to send you two back” so as they walk in the door Ulysses saw Penelope Marie Erizel and he froze and as he looked into her eyes he knew that she would be able to help them go back to there time. So they politely asked and they did so they all went back in there own timeline and Ulysses saw his wife again.


But will he see her again when the whole incident will he still meet those wonderful girls and understand the future again and see whats coming in his men's life and whats coming to the world you will find out in the next chapter.

Jessica Esa: With a tantalising end to the first chapter, the authour has given us a treat and a welcome addition to the fantasy adventure genre. To limit it to just such would be an injustice however, as this novel clearly draws on elements of historical fiction, fairy tale and horror. Simply, there's someth...

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...

littlebunnypoopoos: Omg this was so amazing! The ending was a little bad and predictable. But otherwise, I need a second book or I'll die :D The character development was excellent and the whole romance, action, and suspense was superb

Dee: It’s been two years since Lilly lost her best friend to a vicious random shooting. Now, after a prestigious university extends her an offer of study, she has the chance to start afresh and leave all her demons behind. But the last thing she expects is to meet Elliot. He's a criminal. She's hasn'...

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...

Olivia N J Hamel: I want this book. I love it so much. It is so enjoyable to read and to have a copy of this always, I would be very happy, to always be able to come back and look at it again.

ArgyrisMetaxas: Thrilling story which builds layer ontop of layer. A few mis spellings every few chapters. What I found special was that it took a modern day problem and took it to its logical conclusion and plays this realism with gritting precision. I'm always on edge ready to shout from adrenaline. This is gr...

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.

dd1226: I love reading about other countries and I think this story about Cambodia after Polpot creates awareness of the tragedy that happened there and the actions of the U.N. to hold elections. The heroine of the story is easy to relate to, a modern, middleaged woman looking for an adventure, wanting t...

taosgw74: If this is the authors first attempt at writing, I'm floored. I was engrossed in the plot from the get go.

Roy Jenner: I was pleased to join the action where this B-17 was limping back across the English Channel defying all odds. Obviously written by a person more than familiar with the interior of the Flying Fortresses that were familiar in the skies of Southern England during World War 2. Plenty of action here ...

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...

JWalker: I loved this story from start to finish! It flows at a really nice pace and the story world feels so real. The fight sequences are a treat especially when Isanfyre is training to become a warrior. I found the names really cool and thankfully easy to pronounce. Personally I have always struggled w...

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...
