I don't know what the story is about yet.

CHAPTER ONE: You Ate His Eggs?

It was very wet where the silver she-wolf was, and the moisture soaked her pelt like a sponge, flowing off her fur in tiny rivulets. Mist had been in this blasted cave for days, having access to no food and by now was very hungry. Streams of water ran through under her paws, seeming to have been there always. The darkness was not too thick around her, for above there were holes and cracks in the rocks that let in beams of warm, white light—at least during the day. They were big enough for Mist to fit through, but she was in here for a reason.

There was danger on the forest floor that covered the long maze of caverns underground where she dwelt. An assassin had been hired to destroy her from the face of the earth, and Mist had nearly lost her life fleeing from the failed attempts. Perhaps she did have a lot of folks who despised her, but really? Did they truly hate her enough to murder her?

As Mist was walking, she suddenly heard the faint noise of a conversation being held through a small opening in the ceiling of the cave.

‘It might be those who are after me,’ she flattened her ears suspiciously, crouching down and crawling forward, trying to hone her hearing to decipher the words being spoken.

“We have so many contracts to finish,” complained a familiar voice, “it’s a wonder we don’t drown in them.”

‘My assassin!’ Mist thought with widened eyes. ‘There’s no way they’re here by chance. He and those with him must smell me... I should probably hide better, dang it.’

The assassin’s name was Rulain, and he was a slender painted wolf. His fangs were rather overgrown, long enough to be considered sabers; and they scared the living Fenrir out of Mist, but that’s needless to say. Of course they did! Those long things would frighten anyone.

There were two with him; one a pale fennec fox named Mumble, and the other a female dhole named Willow. Mumble was a tracker hired by Rulain to help find his target, and was well known throughout the region as one of the best in his line of work. Now Willow... Mist was not entirely sure about her, as she had really only heard of the strange looking canine the first night of living out here alone in the wild after finding out she had a warrant out for her head by a mysterious person she didn’t know.

“Well at least this one pays well,” laughed the red furred dhole, licking her chops. “Most of the people who come to us are only willing to pay two-hundred gold for us to kill someone.”

Rulain smirked. “Yeah, Mr. Confidential just threw the one-thousand gold coins at us, coin purse and all; he must really hate this Mist female.”

Willow struggled not to let a loud fit of giggling escape from her throat, not wanting to give away their sly position, hidden in the shadows of an oak tree within the dense woodland. “I know, right?” she said. “He was all like, ‘Just take it! I want her dead!’”

Mist rolled her eyes. ‘Oh gee thanks, Mr. Confidential,’ she sarcastically thought. The silver she-wolf had an idea as to who had put a hit on her; it was not a definite answer, but it was most likely that wolf she’d stolen eggs from a while ago. He seemed really mad that she’d done that, but would he truly have gone to the extent of wanting her dead?

‘I guess he wasn’t kidding when he yelled out to me as I was getting away, “I’ll have your head for stealing my beloved dragon eggs!” Blimey, the trouble I’m always in! Would I do it again? Yes. They tasted bloody good.’

Hawkebat: Playing both Kotor I & II and Swtor I found the story line interesting and it held me until chapter 35 Very good story and plot flow until then, very few technical errors. I felt that the main character was a bit under and over powered, as it fought for balance. The last few chapters felt too f...

Lauren Sanby: This is an excellent story. Very gripping and keeps your attention throughout. Hoping the author is writing a sequel because I'd love to read more about Rhi and Andreas and find out what else Rhi is able to do with her powers.

Lydia Walters: I really enjoyed this novel. It gives us a view of what could be if we really tried.Also that there's nothing wrong with loving our LORD and our fellow humans. couldn't wait to get to each new chapter (mission). Thanks, Joe!

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...

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...

Dru83: This is the second or third time I've read this one and I just love it. It has just about everything you could ever want packed into one scifi story. It still has some parts that are a little rough in terms of grammar, punctuation, and word usage, but it's still an awesome story. I love how detai...

Alani Foreigner: I absolutely loved how you created this story. It isn't like the other cliché stories I've ever read. I had just started reading it yesterday and just had to finish it.

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. The plot was very well thought out and really interesting. There were not any page breaks or markers to acknowledge ...

LeahWrites: I love your use of writer's craft and how you use figurative language to enhance your writing. It great how you didn't have any spelling or grammar issues.

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...
