The Divine wings of Tragedy

I was alone. Alone as any being could ever be, around me corpses lay scattered with slight traces of the life they had held. How I envy them. See everyone fears death, fears not waking up, fears... not being. But as I kneel in this forgotten wasteland dagger lodged in my chest I feel... aware. See death is terrifying cause it takes what you love family, friends, and more importantly experience. However even though it takes those from from an individual it also takes pain, tragedy, and more wretchedly, experience. Maybe that's why people call death cold, it is totally unbiased it doesn't judge you it doesn't ask why just pulls the cord. What a wonderful thing... But it seems to have passed me by and left me with my own company... lovely. What to do now what to do now. "We could go ground that bitch"., Hm... whats the point? "She stabbed you in the heart and left you to die in this fucking no mans land". Yes but we kinda expected that. "Goddamn you emo motherfucker don't you feel any rage at all?". A little but following that path always brings me here. "What's happened to you? you used to be so alive so malicious so full of righteous scorn for the world. Now look at at you nothing, no one, worthless.". These things keep happening to me bringing me down lower each time whats the point of my gratification if it always costs this misery? "Everything has a cost, and every time you pay the cost you going to ask, was this worth it?". is it? "Abso- fucking-loutley no one can soar as high as you can you may fall low but when they see you flying it reminds them of the goddamned magic this universe is made of.". I suppose your right... "Of course I'm right! now the real question is what are we going to do?". I suppose I could pull this knife out of my chest. "I asked you what we are going to do not how where getting there". I don't know. "Bullshit you don't know, you know exactly you want, revenge. you want the feeling of knife ribboning, you want the debt paid in full. So, what are you going to do?".

I'm going to light fire that lights up this universe so that every living thing knows the cost of betraying my company.

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 ...

Bri Hoffer: I couldn't put it down!! The characters are all incredibly likable, and it's so descriptive you can see, smell, and feel thier surroundings. Great story, and very well written. I cannot wait for follow up stories. there were a few grammatical errors, but nothing that I could move right over.

matrixmark: I thought that the introduction to this was relly well written and structurally sound in its presentation.The introduction to the cabin in the woods was good too. To me, it felt like a Blair Witch of yesteryear, but the things which you added in about the mutilated boys were certainly something n...

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

maewilde25: I liked this, though it dragged on for over 200pages and heaven knows I did not expect the plot twist in the middle. David being Cristiãn. I was wondering when he would show up and didn't know he was there all along. it looks like there should be a sequel, please let there be a sequel. I know the...

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.

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.

Mourn8220House: When first reading "Avarice," I thought it would be another fairytale but I was taken back the author's approach and choice of ending. There is little to be said for the story and overall plot besides the sudden twists and speculation, other than that I do not want to ruin a fantastic tale, you m...

maewilde25: I am so in love with this story!!! captivated me till the very end, there wasn't a dull moment. Didn't particularly enjoy the lay out and some bits of info was missing along with how a 21 year old man amassed so much wealth that needed to be explained other than that and a few spelling errors, th...

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

Jade Niday: This book has a really great plot. The author really makes you feel connected to the main character. There are twist around every corner you never see coming.. Great read for sure and I can't wait to see what happens next.

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...

harry142018: This story was gripping and very professionally written. With lots of twists and slight of hand tricks, the author deceives the reader until finally showing their cards at the end. With several subplots all intertwining to create the main plot, this really is an interesting and engaging read.

Laraine Smith: Your story is both sweet and beautiful! You are a true artist! Keep up the great work! I also love the picture that you chose for your book! :)
