True

The room dropped in temperature.

Jane’s breath came out in small, visible puffs as frost started to crawl over every surface: the windows, her bookshelves, and cabinets, even thickly around the door. The desert sun pouring in did nothing to melt it. Essentially, she was trapped. Before her was something dangerous and some ancient instinct screamed for her to run and not look back.

He towered over her more than usual, his red eyes narrowed.

The ice around the trailer thickened.

“Now do you see?” he hissed. “This is what I am. I am the monster parents tell their children at night, the creatures your ancestors spoke of with fear centuries ago. We caused an ice age on your miserable little planet. Even now, you are trembling—”

Erik and everyone else said that her greatest fault was her stubbornness, followed by her curiosity, and when put together, they were a force to recon with. She had the horrible habit of pushing herself too far when it came to the answers she was seeking, of stepping on people’s toes and trying their patience.

She should stop while she was ahead, before she pushed Loki any further.

“It’s probably about twenty degrees in here. Of course I am trembling. I’m in a t-shirt,” she replied, rolling her eyes as she reached out and took his hand, tracing the ridged lines of his skin. “What do these lines mean? Do you know? I haven’t seen anything—”

“Jane!” Loki exclaimed, pulling his hand back as if he was burned.

She looked up at him.

His eyes were filled with fear and she was sure he didn’t plan that.

“Loki, you’re more than your skin. You know that.”

“That is a simple human sentiment. Underneath different skin colors, you are still human, not… not something entirely different.”

She licked her lips, wanting to find the right words to say.

“I don’t know,” she said with a growing smile. “I kind of like different.”

Ruby0h: Overall I thought your story was really good! It drew me in right away and kept me interested as the story progressed.

Elizabeth Robbins: 4.5 starsAs far as apocalypse stories go, this one took a new direction. I'm glad someone finally addressed the need for a vampire apocalypse! This is sort of a multi-genre festival of delights. With hints of forced societies, vamps, hunters, romance, apocalypse, government conspiracy, and thrill...

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...

Sandra Estrada: I loved every minute of it and I thank my lucky stars that brought me to the story, it's been a whirlwind of emotions, plot twist after plot twist but I never got tired of them. Abby and Kade's story is a hard one to understand but once you're submerged in their story and love, you can't help but...

JulieJeanette: I'm only on chapter nine, but so far I am loving this story!. I am on pins and needles hoping that they find good men in their lives by the end. I am American and so the British tone and lingo ('knickers,' 'sod it' ) of the book is very appealing. I had to find out how much '12 stone' was by goog...

Kasey Pinney: This book had me from the beginning. I never came across a part I didn't want to read or that didn't entertain me. The characters are well developed and the internal conversations fit the book well.

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...

Jenn Deering: This is a go-to story for when you're needing a little happiness in your life. It's well-crafted, and characters are true to their show-selves. The pace is right, there are minimal grammatical errors, and the plot is fresh.

Hudson: Your story was fantastic Erin! The Rising Sun was one of the first stories I read on Inkitt, and I have to say I don't regret the three to four days I spent pouring through the story.Probably the biggest strength I see in your writing is your characterisation of Eliana, Oriens, and the rest of th...
