The Abyss Before Time

Before there was land, sea, or air, there was an Abyss. The Abyss stretched infinitely and infinitesimally, it was nothingness. Neither light nor dark, The Abyss was a void in space, ready to be filled. Mithrainor sat in his Kingdom of Radiance, Vul-Sular, surrounded by tall spires and brilliant courtyards made of pure light. The spires shone across the emptiness of The Abyss and could be seen as far as Vul-Dorun, the Kingdom of Shadows, home of Gulmor, kin of Mithrainor. Vul-Dorun was the opposite of Vul-Sular – it was a darkness in the great void. Gulmor had followed Mithrainor to The Abyss, believing that he could forge himself a kingdom with which to evict Mithrainor from the realm and rule by himself.

Mithrainor and Gulmor were the first to inhabit the realm of Vul, which would eventually become home to the mortal races. Mithrainor was the first to come to the realm and he created light, which he used to craft beautiful buildings and wondrous sculptures in his kingdom. Mithrainor created bliss and wonderment to accompany his bright city and so he rejoiced and made merriment that all was well in his Kingdom. Gulmor was the second, and he created the darkness and the night. Gulmor forged evil and twisted thoughts in the blackness, such as hatred and fear. He plotted in the darkness, and prepared for conflict against his brother.

In Vul-Sular Mithrainor crafted his palace, Luminari, from which he would observe his great city. Its golden walls stood hundreds of feet tall, with all kinds of decoration, every beauty that Mithrainor could create. His city joined by immense pathways, supported by the magic of its craftsman. The ground would ripple as his feet tread on it, each surface emanating the purest golden light. From his golden robe shone the same light, which he darned from the star-light of Vul-Sular. His arms adorned with beautiful bracelets, and his head with a mighty crown. In his kingdom Mithrainor created the Sularin, and they lived in the Kingdom of Radiance with Mithrainor, where they continued their master’s work of creating beautiful art and towering architecture. The Sularin were born to be tall and fair, they would be Mithrainor’s most beautiful and loved creations. Mithrainor saw fit to create five thousand Sularin, enough to inhabit his kingdom and later to shape The Abyss as Mithrainor saw fit.

In Vul-Dorun Gulmor had also created himself a race of people, servants that would do his bidding when the time came to take Vul from his brother. Gulmor created the Race of darkness, and they would be called Dorun, they plotted with Gulmor in his stronghold of darkness, that when their numbers had increased, they would take the void and fill it with all manner of dark creations.

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...

re8622: The Last Exodus quickly grabbed my attention. Almost as soon as I started reading the story, I couldn't put it down. I found that the ideas the author put forth were very thought provoking given the turmoil we have seen gradually rise over the last several years. I felt that I could understand th...

aoifecollopy22: I loved how the author had the conflict come back later in the story. Also how they passed time without going over anything. That really helped move the story along. This kept my up for a few hours. YOU SHOULD READ THIS

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.

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 ...

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...

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...

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...

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 ...
