1. L"Orfeo

 I live my life in dreams and songs. I go to work, I come back home, I sleep. Then I do it all again. To make the mundane colorful, I dream a song into life. My life into song. I am just the check out girl at your local grocery store to you but within my mind, I could be anything. I think its fate that my name is Dorothy. 

 There are days I feel as though the world is telling me to let go. To release my grip on reality. Day dreaming becomes my crutch. A bad day is an opera with gilted costumes and heavy makeup. A good day a musical with unlimited moments to sing. I get scared as the world just dissipates, when I dream in daylight. I start to think… Is life yet another dream?

 Today was an opera. My boss screamed in my face, every miniscule detail of his face was in high definition as I watched his spittle fly towards my face. Within my mind he was skewered at the end of my blade, reality: I took every blow to my dignity. I went home in hopes of finding a musical or at least a show tune only to find the opera had hit its climax. My mother also had a bad day. Today I was the enemy in her war against terror. Today my role was two fold, I was the two abusers in my mothers life Grandpa and Dad. Within my mind I healed my mom, in reality: I killed her.

Jordi Roig Avellanet: The first one really took me up for a ride and surprised me really pleasently. This one, up until now, has been amazing too. The characters and their powers are very curious and I'd like to see where all this intense dark plotting goes. I hope it gets finished.

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.

Megan King: This book is absolutely amazing, it kept me on my toes through the entire book. I hope there is a second book. I would 10 out of 10 recommend this for anyone who loves fantasy, action or romance because it is full of all three 💕

the unedited writer: It's a guilty pleasure. The characters are brought to life and you find yourself loving them worrying for them and so on. The plot was serious but at the same time it had a light tone that didn't make you depressed as other drama genres. 5 stars for me

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.

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...
