That Which We Created

Horror / Fantasy

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.

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.

Shifa Gohar: this book is my first on inkitt and I love it thoroughly...but i guess this is not the end. The characters were amazing the plot too. At times it scared me more than a horror movie would. Love the plot something i had not read in a while.

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...

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.

marklurch1: What an unexpected pleasure! I usually avoid modern gothic stories as the zombies and demons shown on TV seem so one-dimensional. But the demons in this story were truly menacing as their powers grew and transfigured as the story progressed. But then, great heroes require great villains. There we...

Judy Haun-Morelock: A very imaginative, compelling story that captivates and holds your attention. Just how will the new Joshua deal with all the changes in his life: his appearance, surroundings, new friends and enemies.

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'...
