The Certus had been awakened. She could feel it. They all could feel it.
That meant the Everto knew about it too. She must get to the Certus before them. The last victory had been the Everto’s and she would not let that happen again. The earth was full of chaos; one disaster after another and empathy for their fellow man severely lacking in humans. She would not let the Everto win again. She had waited long enough. The wait prolonged because of the Ego Captus.
The Ego Captus.
That had been unfortunate. Something that rarely occurred but sometimes could not be helped. Some people weren’t strong enough to handle what was inside of them.
It was also going to make the Certus harder to track. They couldn’t follow the essence from one body to the next. There was no clear indication where it would turn up.
The power that radiated from the Certus was strong. Perhaps this is the one they had talked about. The Prophecy that was to solve it all - the Certus that would save them from this constant war. As long as she could get the Certus to do what she wanted it to.
She looked at the serene blue sky. This time the victory would be hers. There would be no stopping her. Nothing would get in her way.
She just had one problem. A problem that had lingered on for centuries and centuries – the Incomitatus. Something she and the Everto thought would disappear but it only grew stronger every time the Certus appeared. She had to make certain they found the Certus before the Everto or the Incomitatus did. This time she would not lose to either of them.
The earth would not survive another generation of discord. Or confusion. That’s what the Incomitatus did. That could not happen again!
The air crackled around her and a lightning bolt shot from the sky. Another storm created from her anger.
She knew there would be more to come.
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...
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.
Mourn8220House: When first reading "Avarice," I thought it would be another fairytale but I was taken back the author's approach and choice of ending. There is little to be said for the story and overall plot besides the sudden twists and speculation, other than that I do not want to ruin a fantastic tale, you m...
MelanyFrey: This story is just so realistic and so amazingly written that I felt I was a part of it. It starts off completely ordinary, describing the lives of three young brothers, then slowly shifting the focus on one of them, putting him into the spotlight and following him into this unusual, but yet so r...
missinlucky004: One of the best reads I've had in a long time. It was attention grabbing from the front cover until it ended. I sure hope this is the first in a series, either way though, it was a delightful read! I will definitely recommend to friends, and I'll be checking out other books by this author.
CurlyRed: I read this entire book in just under 4 hours I COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN! i found myself emotionally attached to the characters and making personal connections that i had never experienced before while reading a book! I was constantly wanting to read more, every chapter left me on a cliff hanger tha...
FreakyPoet: "you made me laugh, made me cry, both are hard to do. I spent most of the night reading your story, captivated. This is why you get full stars from me. Thanks for the great story!"
Sara Joy Bailey: "Full of depth and life. The plot was thrilling. The author's style flows naturally and the reader can easily slip into the pages of the story. Very well done."
