Part 1: The Darkest Knight

Darkness.  Complete darkness.  All that he had ever known, swirling around him like the mist that filled his mind.  Blessed sunlight had never been attainable.  Black burns and scars were what welcomed him, should he step out into the very thing he craved more than life itself.  The light that is meant to comfort and lead, relieve sadness and remove nightmares of the direst kind was a cruel reminder of that cruel man who spawned him.  Biologically spawned from two fathers; both having abandoned him before he was five.  

One had created spawn such as him for maniacs like his three parents who were so caught up in the want for a child that the did not contemplate that he might not be the creature that they wanted.  Frankenstein's Monster held nothing to him and his brothers; awestiking and animalistic splices of human and beast.  Even he knew not what he was.  His half brothers and sisters - descendants of a mad-man, a pale, fragile imitation a deity - were being ripped from families, loving or otherwise, put into holdings like his.  A cage his own mother had relegated him too - a woman who was once desperate for the perfect child and was now desperate for a childless life with no responsibilities for the cursed one who had caused her much pain.  Never had the pain been intentionally inflicted, yet his very DNA seemingly required it, an impure fact of life.  

Signs of torture hung in the air around him, on his skin, upon his soul. Upon the air conditioned breeze, angry, throbbing howls of other unfortunates scraped the concrete walls, shaking the metal bars.  Pure unadulterated hatred had never been part of his life until this day.  Darkness streamed into his isolated soul, hidden in darkness.  He no longer had the courage to carry on being what he was.  No one was there to take him away from the loneliness in his soul, to banish the hunger and he vowed that no one would ever feel the desperation that he felt for that one person who cared.  Tonight he would become the one to save them, to take them away from here.  As soon as the last lonely, abandoned soul arrived.

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...

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...

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...

Felisa Yoder Osburn: I really enjoyed the story. Civil War stories are some of my favorites and the intertwining of the past with current times was wonderful. I look forward to reading the next stories.

Catherine Kopf: Wow! This was a really great story. I really enjoy reading fantasy, so it didn't take long for me to become invested in the book and its characters like Jacob. I really liked your writing style, and it seemed to flow very well. The descriptions that you used for your world were also created n...

Stephen Warner: To start off, I am thoroughly impressed. The writing style is somewhat unique, and the plot seemed to move at a nice and steady pace. However, I was not expecting this to be a vampire book! I am usually not one for novels about vampires, but I was pleasantly surprised! You wrote with such grace a...

littlebunnypoopoos: Omg this was so amazing! The ending was a little bad and predictable. But otherwise, I need a second book or I'll die :D The character development was excellent and the whole romance, action, and suspense was superb

Cat32: I enjoyed the good versus evil aspect of this novel, especially as the protagonist has to discover how to access that good to save his family. I sat down to begin reading this story, and only put it down long enough to eat with the family! the book does an excellent job of building the suspense, ...

tsolaidowu: I want a continuation dammit....I loved this book and the 1st one. I can't believe this is it. I'm not ready to say goodbye to Jeff and Lorie; and the gang. Great book and storyline. You're a genius Madelyn.

TheGhostWritter: I enjoyed your book, great plot, random twists and great characters, Loved it, One suggestion is to keep paragraphs short, at one point I might have begun skipping paragraphs because they became a little to long, bit other wise great book, brilliant plot, and bloody amazing thriller.

catd69: Karim is a very talented writer. When I started reading his journey it took me into the book and I was in the story till the end. I've never felt this way with any other writers stories. If you want to read a gripping adventure, this will be the one book I would suggest you pick.

Marimar Amieva: Although I found the vampire thing a bit too much, I couldn't stop reading it. The story had a bit of everything: mystery, romance, a huge plot twist and relatable characters. I congratulate the author for this story and hope to read more of whatever he writes.

mikaylapetrodos: I really enjoyed the story and I hope you publish the next part of the book soon. the plot line was always easy to follow with plenty of plot twist thrown it. I think it would have been better to explain how some characters got involved in the story more instead of them just showing up.
