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.

mray2174: I did like this story. I would totally recommend it to a friend, but it didn't seem like a book.

larry: I’ m not a professional book reviewer, but this is a good one! I liked it enough to read it non stop!

Nanasha: I thought I'd written a comment on this story, but for some reason, I guess it didn't go through. Anyway, so this story is intensely addictive. I liked how the author uses established mythology but then gives it a unique twist. The idea of goblins all coming from the head of the king is an ama...

Jason Phang: I'm pretty new to Inkitt (this is only my 4th book) and I must say I've been thoroughly impressed by the quality of the authors here. Remnants of Chaos is an excellently written book that hooks the reader, and doesn't let go. There are some grammatical and typographical errors, but nothing too se...

aaron10905: This is undoubtedly one of the best books written on here. I actually unistalled this app until someone told me about this story. I came back not expecting much, just to be drawn into the story and the characters. I would buy this book in real life, as long as another was promised shortly after.

debmart6901: I could not put this story down. I stayed up reading when I should have been in bed. could not get enough, could not wait to find how it ended. Great story telling. Great detail. Loved it. The characters were very vivid.
