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.

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.

Elizabeth Robbins: 4.5 starsAs far as apocalypse stories go, this one took a new direction. I'm glad someone finally addressed the need for a vampire apocalypse! This is sort of a multi-genre festival of delights. With hints of forced societies, vamps, hunters, romance, apocalypse, government conspiracy, and thrill...

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). ...
