Chapter 1

“Rise up, rise up! Soldier, hunter . Bearer of the earth, you will rise again : Arise, take the souls of those who wish to steal you away from the moon. Destroy not the people that seek thy life. Rise from the death of the innocent. Get up. Rise and arise from the dead, and the life of the dying and the dying mother . Take the souls of the worshipers.”


The words burn in all parts of my body, never have I felt such horrible pain. Fire and words crawl across my eyes, mind, and soul. I can see men and women on there knees, mouths moving. Children lay dead before them, throats slit wide open.

“Get up , get up! You shall rise again: Arise, and take the souls of those who wish to lock you away. Arise. Awake, and arise from the dead, and the life of the dying and the death of the mother. Take the souls of the worshipers."

My mouth opens and closes desperately trying to scream out. My head turns, it moves slowly like its stuck in a thick liquid. I watch as the women slide knifes across there own throats, blood flowing out like a horrible waterfall. My hand reaches out, slowly. Wiggling my fingers I realize that the skin has mostly melted off, leaving charred bone.

"Awake, awake, stand up, stand up, Rise up, and take the world. Arise. Awake, and arise from the dead, and the life of the dying . Take on the worshipers!” 


My eyes are open looking into a world of colors I've never seen or even imagined. I bring my hands up to my face, the skin is there but its like clear water. The veins are dark woven colors and words are moving up and down them. Looking up I see a women with impossibly long hair, worlds and galaxies braided into it. Shes all I see. Her hand traces the veins on my face as she moves closer. 

Now I'm walking along next to a gold river. The women stands on the other side. Holding hands we walk for what seems like eternity. 

I'm falling back, back into a silver fire. Hellfire, my creation, my child, being used to cage me. I see her face and her hair with the galaxies woven in. Rage fills my body, a scream rips through my throat. My hands fly up grabbing the nearest thing and pulling it in. Humans, her creation, her child. So small, so soft, simple, nothing but pureness, they are bound to her, to serve her. Pressing my finger into the there souls I create there freedom and there shackles. Whispering fear, rage, envy, greed, hate, lust, and knowledge into there blackened souls, I have created there freedom and there shackles. Releasing them I sink into the cage that will hold me for all eternity.

Chris Rolfe: BOY!!! I sure love what Aer-Ki Jyr did with this series. IMHO he captured the essence of what stargate is all about. Thru out the Stargate stories Aer-Ki wrote Stevens and John Shepard some of the main characters in his stories are pursued by a corrupt I.O.A.. All the while Stevens is changing in...

Nymeria: Really can't get enough of this story. It flows well, it captivates the reader from page 1, and throws you into such a well-written, well conceptualized world that you'll believe it's real.

Elizabeth Robbins: 4.5 starsAs far as apocalypse stories go, this one took a new direction. I'm glad someone finally addressed the need for a vampire apocalypse! This is sort of a multi-genre festival of delights. With hints of forced societies, vamps, hunters, romance, apocalypse, government conspiracy, and thrill...

: This is a very interesting book - mostly because the heroine is quite charming and well rounded, and has very real issues to manage in her life. Most of all,. I loved the view inside of the life of a South Asian girl/woman, the emotional self-talk, the customs and preferences, the expectations a...

Alex Rushmer: This was not what I expected, but I enjoyed it a lot Malfoy was always one of the characters that I liked a lot, so I like that a lot of this happens between him and Colette.

PurpleInkling: Hippocrite is spelt hypocrite.Also it is an awesome story! A good one after so long. I was hoping someone would write a good fanficiton playing off what Ron said at the station.

ga1984: I really enjoyed it! Characters were deep and plot was pretty complex. A bit on the violent side but it doesnt detract from the story. Very dark but situations make sense. Ends kinda abruptly and later chapters will need some editing work. I'm assuming there's more in the works?

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.
