Blurb

Meghan and Toby start their first year at The Academy, and must learn quickly to defend their school from the evil forces. If their devious plans fail, Meghan and Toby will die and the entire school will collapse. They must rid the world of evil, but that's only with the proper training.

Prologue

“Luke? Could you come to my room for a second?” Luke’s brother Owen calls over sweetly.

​ Why wouldn’t he? Owen was his twin, his best friend. Luke would never dream of Owen leaving him. Never in his worst dreams has he imagined them being apart for more than 24 hours, much less on different sides.

Luke placed his last textbook into his trunk and dashed over to Owen’s room next door. His room is a mess - he hasn’t even packed! “Owen, why haven’t you packed yet? We start school -“

“Luke, you’re the only one who will understand. That’s why I decided to tell you first,” Owen interrupts. He continues, “I’m not going back to school this year.”

“Why?” Luke question Owen. “O, I thought we swore that we would always be together. You know what happens if you break your oath right?”

“Yes, I know. But that’s the problem. It’s where our loyalties lie.” Owen explains.

“What are you talking about? We both know our loyalties lie with Professor John and the Academy. We both will protect the Academy with our life.” Luke screams.

Owen puts a finger to his lip and shushes his twin. “Luke Buckley, you must understand. Professor John promised me something. But he didn’t deliver it. My master has promised me the same thing. And I know he will deliver it. My master honors his word.”

“Owen Buckley, if this is how you want it so be it. I hope you will come to your senses soon before anything gets worse.” Luke manage, tears forming out of his eyes.

“Lukey, just remember, if you see me again, don’t approach me. I won’t be the same person anymore. I won’t give you any mercy.” His ex-best friend warns, before grabbing his suitcase. He turns on his heel and walks out of the Buckley house matter-of-factly. ​

Luke sits on his twin’s bed and cries. He sits there for eternity, staring at his wall, covered with posters of potion recipes, crying. He doesn’t seem to notice the girl sitting behind him until she quietly asks him, “Luke, what’s wrong?

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...

Sandra Estrada: I loved every minute of it and I thank my lucky stars that brought me to the story, it's been a whirlwind of emotions, plot twist after plot twist but I never got tired of them. Abby and Kade's story is a hard one to understand but once you're submerged in their story and love, you can't help but...

jessiehs: This was absolutely amazing. I loved how it went back and forth between perspectives. I actually cried at the end I was so happy. This was amazing. I can't even think of another word to describe it. Thank you for writing his.

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...

salma elsamy: it's really awesome , and I really like the whole idea of the story . I also love how simple the vocabularies because English is my second language and the simplicity of the story is great for me . And I will definitely buy it if it's published.

brettylee: The narrative is slick yet punchy. Life, Family and Friends I believe is the core message so it’s easy to relate to. It’s surprisingly action packed. The author does a good job at keeping you guessing. Just when you think all is right, whack, the unexpected happens. The dialogue is energetic and ...

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...

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 ...

Jenn Deering: This is a go-to story for when you're needing a little happiness in your life. It's well-crafted, and characters are true to their show-selves. The pace is right, there are minimal grammatical errors, and the plot is fresh.

GeorgeS: The author has a VERY refreshingly direct writing style. Sometimes being punched in the gut (or nose, as the case may be) can be an excellent thing, indeed. Whatever may be lacking in subtlety is more than made up for in the diamond clarity of character development. I look forward to MORE. I c...

KC_Ward: Black Mark was one of the most interesting romance novels I have read. I really enjoyed the fact that Mora has such a strong character and held her ground. Each character had a background story that gave clues as to what shaped their personalities. This novel was almost like two books rolled into...

JWalker: I loved this story from start to finish! It flows at a really nice pace and the story world feels so real. The fight sequences are a treat especially when Isanfyre is training to become a warrior. I found the names really cool and thankfully easy to pronounce. Personally I have always struggled w...

Alexis Dredd Zarcal: Overall, it's a rather thrilling piece, merging superstition, psychology, slice of life, and the usual Japanese risque fare. All the elements have rhyme and reason in being placed together.The respective background stories of the characters involved so far also give a sense of flair and thrill.I'...
