Introlude

Annie was but a young girl the first time she was kidnapped. She was such a beautiful child, adored and envied. Before her eyes were emerald green and she had beautiful scarlet hair. But after she came back she had one emerald eye and one blood red eye, her hair remained the same scarlet that it had always been. But when this occurred she was feared and hated. The people who kidnapped her realized that she had a gift, it isn’t every day after all that a little girl knocks a person out by saying “sleep!”.

So she was kidnapped and loaded up the day of her 5th birthday. Four weeks later she escaped. A week in she heard the voices. These voices told little Annie how to escape the nasty place with all the Baddies. These voices came with her new eye colour. She fell asleep on the first night and the Baddies poked her with needles so that she would be under their control and that they could unlock little Annie’s full potential. But they didn’t realise that they had just let Annie escape by believing that they had control. They unlocked her potential and in doing so let a force that had been helping Annie, to get even closer than it was before; that had been helping her for years in the background. Little Annie didn’t realize this, so when she yelled out “Die! Just Die you Baddies!” as the voices had told her to, all the Bad men did as she said. She didn’t know at the time but the people who were doing the autopsy found that they had died of a stroke or heart attack; simultaneously. That exact moment her eye turned red. ‘It will be how you show that you survived the torture that they made you suffer’ the voices told her ’listen to us and we will keep you safe’. It took Annie 3 weeks to get back home. She walked 388.5 kilometers until she got home. She was fed and watered by random strangers who payed no mind to her red eye because it was covered by her hair like the voices told her to. ‘They fear what they don’t know, we will protect you from those people; for now cover your eye, and you will be able to make it home.’

When little Annie got home she was hit and beaten by her parents, and all of her friends and teachers at her school were scared of her and hurt her whether in her marks or physically, emotionally, verbally, and mentally. All of this because of her eye changing, something that couldn’t be controlled.This would have never happened if a teacher hadn’t told little Annie that she wasn’t allowed to have her hair in her face. She was also feared because she talked to these ‘voices’ and she would have actual conversations with them and seem to make eye contact with these ‘voices’ and even worse yet she had names for them too. But no one knew that these things making Annie look insane was actually her ancestor that had acted as a coping method for all of the abuse from her peers, teachers, and family. With the added bonus of opening a gate that had been long forgotten and opened the gate for seven others as well.

I cannot wait for follow up stories. there were a few grammatical errors, but nothing that I could move right over.

re8622: The Last Exodus quickly grabbed my attention. Almost as soon as I started reading the story, I couldn't put it down. I found that the ideas the author put forth were very thought provoking given the turmoil we have seen gradually rise over the last several years. I felt that I could understand th...

Alex Rushmer: This was not what I expected, but I enjoyed it a lot Malfoy was always one of the characters that I liked a lot, so I like that a lot of this happens between him and Colette. I read the first couple chapters, and I enjoyed your writing style and am excited to see where you take this story. My com...

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. This is a deep, powerful story, making the readers wonder about everything – about love, about their e...

minallie: One word, brilliant

Shweta Somwanshi: I just chose to read this out of nowhere and now I can't stop. Hats off to the author who made the reader swoon away with words so beautifully! I loved how I was able to imagine everything so explicitly because the writing was simple and easily comprehensive with a touch of complexity somewhere b...

Alani Foreigner: I absolutely loved how you created this story. It isn't like the other cliché stories I've ever read. I had just started reading it yesterday and just had to finish it. The main characters are grotesquely awesome and I fell in love with them. If you're into fantasy and stuff I can guarantee that ...

Lydia Walters: I really enjoyed this novel. It gives us a view of what could be if we really tried.Also that there's nothing wrong with loving our LORD and our fellow humans. couldn't wait to get to each new chapter (mission). Thanks, Joe!

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...

nirrmitshah: A truely touching story where you'd be at the edge of your seat for the most time. even though the starting might seem rushed, the story was extremely interesting and entertaining.

ArgyrisMetaxas: Thrilling story which builds layer ontop of layer. A few mis spellings every few chapters.What I found special was that it took a modern day problem and took it to its logical conclusion and plays this realism with gritting precision.

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...
