Emmett and Amelia entered Briarlight. It seemed empty.

“Emmett!” Emmett turned and saw his mother and his sister, Norie, running towards them. He almost fell backwards as they both tackled him with bear-hugs. Joseph followed them out of his house.

“Emmett! Amelia! What happened?” He asked.

“We left the army.” Amelia quickly explained what she and Emmett had done in the mountains.

Joseph simply sighed. “I’m just happy you’re both home safe. Amelia, the Blackfire residents have gone back to their own territory. Your home has been rebuilt.”

Amy’s eyes lit up. “Really?”

Dread filled Emmett. “Are you going back home, then?”

“Of course.” She looked up at him, her eyes apologetic. “Blackfire’s my home, even though Briarlight is okay. Will you come back with me?”

Emmett looked at his family. He nodded. “Mom, that’s okay, right?”

“It’s fine.”

“Then let’s go.”


Blackfire looked the same as Briarlight, except the atmosphere. The atmosphere was more...proud. Whereas Briarlight felt more homey and warm, Briarlight felt strong and proud.

“I’m staying with Andrew,” Amy said, stopping in front of a grey house. “I’ll write to you, okay?”

“Okay.” She fished a pen out of her pack and took his hand, scribbling an address onto his hand. Andrew’s address. She finished, and gave him a quick hug. He squeezed her tightly, feeling her warmth and inhaling her scent before she let go. He loosened his grip around as and watched as she opened the door and went inside the house.

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.

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...

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...

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...

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!

Laraine Smith: You are a true artist! You should do this for a living! I love the imagery here! It is magical! You are magical!

snowview03: This is the first book I have read on this app and I loved it! When I read the title I thought about the hunger games, but this novel is so much more.

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...

Marijana1: The melancholy present throughout this story has the power to influence and etch into the minds of the readers, to stay there and refuse to leave even after they have finished reading the story.
