Yesterwary

Blurb

No one expects to run out of love. We fall for neighbors, strangers, celebrities, and gods, but we rarely consider the consequences of being so careless with our own hearts. To Demi Harper, the thought of running out of love is nothing more than another of her sister's cautionary tales, told to protect her from heartache. But the loss of the one person in the world who loves her in return proves that it may not be so ridiculous a thought, after all. A gasp, a pain, and a foreboding silence within her chest leads Demi to a strange, dark place outside of possibility and time. Beyond the domain of happiness and love, Yesterwary is filled only with the reminders of all that is left behind by those who give their hearts to those who do not want them.

Stars and signs and street reflectors streaked past him in glowing, muddled lines as he sped down the highway. The night became more blurred with each messy sip from the flask. He felt nothing but the burn of alcohol in his throat and the weight of emptiness in his chest.

Stars and signs and street reflectors meandered past her, guiding her, like beacons of hope, toward a dream she never thought she’d obtain. The night was open and inviting, each mile-marker bringing her one step closer to a new life. She felt nothing but excitement and possibility.

His eyelids drooped as he tossed the empty flask into the backseat, and rummaged through a plastic bag on the floor until his grip tightened around a bottle of whiskey.

Her eyes widened at the sight of the headlights swerving across the lanes, and her knuckles whitened as her grip tightened around the steering wheel.

He was too numb to react to the sound of the blaring horn.

She was too late to react to the sound of the crushing metal.

Lights and sirens whirled around him as he came-to. A trail of sticky red matted his dark, greasy mane to the steering wheel. His eyes focused in on the EMT who was trying to pry him from the mangled heap, and he wished for nothing more than to be left there in the ruin; to die.

Lights and sirens whirled around her as she faded away. A quilt of glass and dirt held her to the cold ground. Her eyes focused in on the stars above as they beckoned for her company, and she wished for nothing more than to stay behind; to survive.

He never saw her face.

His was the last face she would ever see.

makaylakay: I love love this story! It's written incredibly and well thought-out plot! I love how it's a different twist in fantasy fiction, other then the usual vampire or werewolves. Love the romantics and drawn to the two characters so much already! This book will draw you in within the first chapter and ...

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.

Alisha Banks: You have me hooked! I immediately upon finishing the first book had to start the second. It is a captivating story and I can't wait to finish the other two book! I will definitely be recommending this book to others to read!

littlebunnypoopoos: Omg this was so amazing! The ending was a little bad and predictable. But otherwise, I need a second book or I'll die :D The character development was excellent and the whole romance, action, and suspense was superb

Kevin Brand: My overall rating: 4.8/5 starsLoved. Every. Second. Everytime I came back to continue reading I got this overwhelming feeling of getting hooked on the first sentence... Over and over and again!The only things that were missing for me include more descriptions on what happens when Reuben touches s...

Laraine Smith: Your story is both sweet and beautiful! You are a true artist! Keep up the great work! I also love the picture that you chose for your book! :)

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...

sujitha nair: What's so distinct about this story was that it could easily be real. Praveena can be your classmate, neighbor or that girl you saw at the coffee shop today. The important decisions she makes and the dilemmas she faces, remind us of our own twisted lives.

SPepper: I had a hard time putting this book down even to go to sleep. The story is compelling and beautifully character driven. I hope author will make this a series.

JWalker: I loved this story from start to finish! It flows at a really nice pace and the story world feels so real. The fight sequences are a treat especially when Isanfyre is training to become a warrior. I found the names really cool and thankfully easy to pronounce. Personally I have always struggled w...

Jessica Esa: With a tantalising end to the first chapter, the authour has given us a treat and a welcome addition to the fantasy adventure genre. To limit it to just such would be an injustice however, as this novel clearly draws on elements of historical fiction, fairy tale and horror. Simply, there's someth...

OpheliaJones: This story took a different kind of spin on the "normal girl lives with definitely not normal guy" plot. The plot points of Frey's father, Liam's family, and Frey's view of Liam's world were good to read. She did not fall in love with him in the first couple weeks. Their lives were not smooth in ...

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 ...
