Prologue

Long ago in a kingdom long forgotten there was a war over who was truly in control till a horrible storm sunk the kingdom. The remnants of the kingdom were either killed or left to their own will which would lead to their own deaths. The royal family transformed into seadwellers after the storm since they were already halfway there to begin with. They only had to grow fins and adjust to breathing under water at all times instead of on land as well. Things were peaceful until one of the kings own sons wanted a change for the people but his father didn’t take rebellion well. The son was cast out and his part of the family tree was hidden from all descendants and family for many years. This son was to die with the rebellion having never worked but instead left it up to his own descendants to do.

  His rebellion was freedom to all and for no one to be treated harshly just because they are different or believe in other things. He rounded up a group of friends to leave with him along with his wife since he couldn’t leave her or their son behind. From there on he lived in a group that was constantly having to move or else be caught by his father. As time went on he taught not only his son about his belief but also his granddaughter as well as the other children. He did this so that even when his life came to an end his words could live on in others no matter what. This tactic worked till one day long after his death the strangest thing happened.

Deleted User: This is a very clever story in the style of 19th century (and turn of the century) Gothic writing, very reminiscent of Stevenson's The Body Snatchers or even of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (less so of Frankenstein itself, since the author is more minimalist than Shelley's florid, Romantic rhetoric). ...

europeanlove: I gotta hand it to you. I love reading. I read books everyday. When the book is good I can read it in probably 13 hours. Your story was amazing. Great prose, very imaginative. Incredible dialogue. I am deeply impressed. Keep it up.

Tony Lee: Very interesting with good ideas! Would recommend it as a casual read. Been depressed for quite some time but this novel kept me occupied for about a week. If you enjoy fiction-thriller novels with some magic involved, then this is the novel for you.

Everything in the book is meshed together really well. From character backgrounds to plot twists, you can t...

Lauren Suzmeyan-Raine: I'm so glad you found a place to post your stories. I was horrified when I saw yours had been taken down, they are definitely the best 'reading' stories I've ever read. And I've made it my business to read every one I can. Well done.Lauren

JWalker: I loved this story from start to finish! It flows at a really nice pace and the story world feels so real.

MavisMcQueen: "To Live Again" is a well crafted, highly engaging, heart vibrating tale surrounding our favorite Elven King. The author will keep you engrossed until the very end and by that time you will feel so strongly for Clara and the other characters that you will never want it to end...like ever. Thrandu...

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...
