Adventure / Fantasy

Blurb

The land of Parafer is at war with only two sides, angels and demons. The child of a forbidden love has the power to end the war. Either side seek to control her, to make her choice for her. One thing, though, darkness may not be always evil.

Prologue

          The ravens were silent in the dawn light, their black feathers gleaming in the first rays of light. A winged figure sat in a hidden hollow, cluching a tiny bundle. She held the child, a single tear falling. Footsteps sounded on the ground, alongside hoofbeats and wingbeats. She placed the baby down, hiding her in the hollow. She stepped out and ran, the prophecy ringing in her head.

Hair as black as Raven’s feathers,

an eye of pure silver

another of crimson blood.

Stars align at dawn crow’s call...

          She stood, bravely, in front of the soldiers. They stopped at the sight of the woman, once an angel of the high court, now a fugitive. “Hand over the demon-cursed child, Amaralis. Then I won’t have to kill you.” Amaralis spread her torn wings, her eyes apologetic. “I apologize, Mariel.” Mariel looked at Amaralis for a long moment, eyes sad and deep. “Alright.” Mariel drew his sword, studying it’s shining silver blade, the hilt embedded with a ruby. The crest on the back of his palm glowed with a white light as thorns wrapped around his hand, turning red with blood. “I, Mariel, angel of dawn light sentence Amaralis, angel of clouded sky to death’s door.” Amaralis’s own crest, on her forehead, glowed and faded. As it faded, Amaralis felt her imortality crumble away. She fell to the ground, taking one, final breath, watching Mariel ride away, his eyes glowing with pity. Then, the angel closed her eyes, welcoming the darkness.

          The half angel, half demon opened her eyes from the vision, standing up in the home she’d built up in a tree. One of them, anyway. She stretched her wings, one feathered pure white, the other obsidian black and scaled.

Amaralis, hmm?

Deleted User: This is a very clever story in the style of 19th century (and turn of the century) Gothic writing, very reminiscent of Stevenson's The Body Snatchers or even of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (less so of Frankenstein itself, since the author is more minimalist than Shelley's florid, Romantic rhetoric). ...

europeanlove: I gotta hand it to you. I love reading. I read books everyday. When the book is good I can read it in probably 13 hours. Your story was amazing. Great prose, very imaginative. Incredible dialogue. I am deeply impressed. Keep it up.

Tony Lee: Very interesting with good ideas! Would recommend it as a casual read. Been depressed for quite some time but this novel kept me occupied for about a week. If you enjoy fiction-thriller novels with some magic involved, then this is the novel for you.

Lauren Suzmeyan-Raine: I'm so glad you found a place to post your stories. I was horrified when I saw yours had been taken down, they are definitely the best 'reading' stories I've ever read. And I've made it my business to read every one I can. Well done.Lauren

JWalker: I loved this story from start to finish! It flows at a really nice pace and the story world feels so real.

MavisMcQueen: "To Live Again" is a well crafted, highly engaging, heart vibrating tale surrounding our favorite Elven King.

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...
