Into the malestrom

I ran in the deep, past the sable towers, no, trees, as big as towers, high as mountains, yet they could not hide me. I ran betwixt mountains but what I ran from even mountains could not keep.
I hid behind one and listened with heaving breadths swallowed by the ancient silence, breadth and footsteps had long since fell here, a fading memory, now renewed to these ancient things. They still follow, I felt it more than I knew it. I ran until the forest of towers fell into verdure waters. 

It was a green lake with turbulent swirling waters. It flowed with a massive force, rushing and crashing into the chasm at its center, the swallowing pit of the maelstrom. I was overwhelmed by it as if just by looking it would draw me in. Still I felt them, closer this time still coming, heard them, closer, reaching, this could not be the end, closer...

The chasm gave a guttural sound as something gargantuan was belched up and crashed through the pith's rim of cascading waters. They're demonic nicher grew more distinct. It was a stone platform where only one may stand held up by descending stairs. closer. She ascended, grey skeletal hands upon black staff, hair and cloak swaying with the force of the strom's powerful spirals. 
"Come! Hurry to me" it echoed from her blue gaze though it was never spoken. A sweet delicate voice stirred like the waters with such trepidation, so much fear. It frightened me more, the urgency in which she called. They reached.

The wail reached through my flesh and bones to push my soul, so my body followed away from the grip of green hands into the jaws of unnatural green waters.

kwilliams: I am an avid reader, and I do mean AVID and few indie authors capture my attention the way you have. I absolutely fell in love with these characters and their story. I'm usually not a fan of the cliff hanger endings (be it a series or not), but this one made me download the Kindle app just so I c...

Jason Phang: More, I want MORE! Your stories are keeping me from games and (gasp) even sleep! Each chapter brought fresh hooks that I willingly wolfed down (pun intended) and I just couldn't bear going to sleep not knowing what happens next to Lindsay and Wayne. I also loved how the epilogue was done. Excelle...

spec4huff: Thank you for creating this world. I am a 6'3" veteran that thinks himself tough. But the piece of literature you have created made me misty eyed on a number of occasions.

Catherine Kopf: Wow! This was a really great story. I really enjoy reading fantasy, so it didn't take long for me to become invested in the book and its characters like Jacob. I really liked your writing style, and it seemed to flow very well. The descriptions that you used for your world were also created n...

makaylakay: I love love this story! It's written incredibly and well thought-out plot! I love how it's a different twist in fantasy fiction, other then the usual vampire or werewolves. Love the romantics and drawn to the two characters so much already! This book will draw you in within the first chapter and ...

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...

Stephen Warner: To start off, I am thoroughly impressed. The writing style is somewhat unique, and the plot seemed to move at a nice and steady pace. However, I was not expecting this to be a vampire book! I am usually not one for novels about vampires, but I was pleasantly surprised! You wrote with such grace a...

Hali McGowan: when will the third book be done? I am absolutely hooked. I red the first two books within less than a week. I'm itching for the third one. The plotline is absolutely wonderful. I've never been much for sci-fi ish books. but you've got me hooked on this series

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...

Satabda Chatterjee: Each and every charecter develops during the whole course of the journey and keeps secretly love for the princess .

Lauren Sanby: This is an excellent story. Very gripping and keeps your attention throughout. Hoping the author is writing a sequel because I'd love to read more about Rhi and Andreas and find out what else Rhi is able to do with her powers.
