Vision of Fire

The Present, in a field outside the city of Kamar

Siron: My name is Siron. I am a young bard, who walks from kingdom to kingdom looking to earn a good buck. You might be wondering why I even do that. Well it's kind of hard to explain. Things happened...


The Past, after a war in the kingdom of Jora.

Imperial Soldier: *runs towards his general* Sir.
???: What news do you bring me.
Imperial Soldier: Some of the folks in this town had fled. We fear that may be headed to Graia.
???: *sheaths sword after stabbing a helpless individual crawling on the ground* Deploy the airships. Kill as many as you see running towards Kamar. 
Imperial Soldier: Yes General Kudlov.
Kudlov: *takes cigar from his pocket and lights it up* You are... the first... but not the last. *throws cigar down onto gunpowder laying on the dirt, catching the place on fire instantly.

Kudlov; A very tall slender man with white long flowing white hair and an eye patch. He is the general of King Machiron's royal army. He is cold and heartless and will do anything for power and control. As for those who defy his orders, they leave this world by his hands. He has taken many innocent lives, yet shows no remorse. Some call him the devil himself... that is before he kills them. 


The Present, in a field outside the city of Kamar

Gali: Wake up sleepy head! *laughs*
Siron: *screams* Stop scaring me like that.
Gali: *frowns* I'm not that ugly am I.
Siron: Wha-what... no I didn't mean it like that...
Gali: *laughs* Don't worry silly. I was joking. 
Siron: *frowns* 
Gali: Hey I was just joking. Lighten up Siron.
Siron: I know.
Gali: Listen. I know what you are thinking and it's not your fault. You couldn't do anything about it.
Siron: It's not that...
Gali: Oh? Well what is it?
Siron: I had another one of those dreams.
Gali: The one about the sky?
Siron: Yeah. Does it mean something? I can't wrap my memories around it.
Gali: Hey don't think about it too much. Look, *points at the city of Kamar* we just have to head there and find a good paying job. Try to think of that instead.
Siron: Your right. *smells food* Are you making something?
Gali: Yep! Better come get some before I eat it all. *laughs*
Siron: *laughs* No you don't. *races over to the food that Gali prepared*

Siron and Gali eat their food and prepare themselves to go to the city of Kamar.

Alex Rushmer: This was not what I expected, but I enjoyed it a lot Malfoy was always one of the characters that I liked a lot, so I like that a lot of this happens between him and Colette. I read the first couple chapters, and I enjoyed your writing style and am excited to see where you take this story. My com...

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...

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...

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. I want a love like this. Thank you again, I would totally buy this book and hopefully the sequels to this ever enchanting lov...

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...

ernbelle: When I first started this story I was a little unsettled by all of the information that appears in the prologue, and wasn't sure if I would continue. However, I am very glad I did. The plot was very well thought out and really interesting. There were not any page breaks or markers to acknowledge ...

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

SPepper: I had a hard time putting this book down even to go to sleep. The story is compelling and beautifully character driven. I hope author will make this a series.

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...

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.

Felisa Yoder Osburn: I really enjoyed the story. Civil War stories are some of my favorites and the intertwining of the past with current times was wonderful. I look forward to reading the next stories.

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!

Arabella: The catchy blurb caught my attention. The story is creepy but I would not qualify it as a horror story. The characters are likeable and I’m impatiently waiting for new stories from Obsidian Fae.
