The Six fingered Hero

Now, this is an odd concept...

Now, this may be hard for you to understand, I know it was when I first learned it. Everyone, you have ever met, read about, heard about, or seen, is both a villain and a hero in their own right. This is odd, correct? In literature there is always a clear and out right antagonist and protagonist. They may be skewed and shown in odd lights so you think it's the opposite, but really its crystal clear in literature compared to real life. Black and white, you're good or you're bad. There is no in-between. There is no gray. But in real life, we have an entire rainbow, monochromatic, complements. It's all there. You just need to know where to look. The same is true with people. Take me for example. 

In literature I would always be labeled the bad guy. I wear leather jackets, I'm white, I'm a guy, and did I forget to mention the most important reason? I have six fingers on my left hand, and my name is Rugen. 

Ring any bells? Any classic tales of true love and adventure come into mind? No? Ah, well, you can Google it now that everyone and everything is online anyway.

Anyway, I was born defective and my parents, being huge fans of literature named me after the evil six fingered man who killed Inigo Montoya's father when he was just ten years old. What kind of jerk does that?

Well, apparently, people with six fingers. 

So, here I am, depicting my tale. For, while I have six fingers, and I am supposed to be the bad guy, I really am a good guy. It's true. I saved someone's life and made sacrifices and everything. You want to hear? Well, it's worth a shot. Maybe then you won't see things as black and white anymore.

Ben Gauger: Kudos to Bryan Laesch, author of Remnants of Chaos:Chaotic Omens for his use of the Gothic style of writing and in addition the footnotes and endnotes at the end of each chapter, a welcome accompaniment to be sure, though his use of grammar could use a little improving, but his use of punctuation...

Sammi Chan: THIS WAS AMAZING!!! My favorite part of this story was the slow build of Merlin and Arthur's relationship. Their relationship was rlly nicely fleshed out and so good :) The way that you handled the magic reveal was super enjoyable. I rlly liked the switching POVs. Good!Mordred was cute and I'm rl...

Kiz16: After a truly shocking start to the story, I found the style and content slowed down as the author introduced a varied group of characters who I thought were fleshed out very well. After a slow couple of chapters, I found this story difficult to leave with the tension growing within the house. Yo...

Animeviewer: It is one of the best stories I've ever read. This story will have you riding a roller coaster of emotions and nearly dying to know what happens next.You will get very attached to the characters and in my case I relate well with some of their very traumatic or emotional experiences, Just Juliet f...

: The book was hella great. You never know what's going to happen next. There's a lot of clues that shows to the next scene. I thought Miley and David would marry each other in this book but too my disappointment, they didn't. I have a ques. Will there be a part two to this book?

Angel S. Adames Corraliza: Sensational! As a fan of superheroes, I have to say, you have a real winner of a story so far. I like that you made Allison a Wonder Woman expy, but kept her likable and relate-able in this first chapter. You showed us the Mother while also glancing at the Superhero, which I think is important to...

Faye Paul: Rachel Sikkema engages me as she opens wide a window into the troubled soul of Danny; a young man living on the edge of life with whom I truly connect throughout this story of his journey. I sit on the edge of my seat, willing him in his choices, as he navigates the life and death chessboard of d...

Lacey Schmidt: The Trouble with Super is that you can't stop reading it. Mr. Barrett's characters are all to easy to relate to even if you don't have a super quirk of your own, and their plight is both heart-rendingly funny and heart-warmingly sad at the same time. It's a bit like Office Space meets the Matri...

Deleted User: (A review in progress). I like this. It's sparse, gritty and atmospheric - reminiscent of the classic Golden Age of American detective fiction of the Thirties. I've only read the beginning, but I'll definitely be back. This writer knows their stuff and has done their homework on detective work. T...

Sandra Leigh: Sadly, the book left me wanting more. There are only 5 chapters and I want more! It is easily as good as The White Queen and The Other Boleyn Girl. I cannot wait for this one to be finished.

Lydia Sherrer: I first read The Speaker almost a decade ago when I first discovered author Sandra Leigh. I loved it then, and I still love it now. It is a simple, easy read, yet deep in meaning and rich in storyline. I do not know what kind of research or prior knowledge Leigh has of First Nation tribes, but sh...

dapharoah69: I gotta hand it to you. This was a great read from start to finish. I am a big fan of witches, thanks to Anne Rice. The characters really reeled me in from the very first few chapters. You make reading fun.

Alex Rushmer: I like the intrigue that you introduce from the very beginning of the story. The idea of the girl waking up in the alley with no memory of how she got there and with injuries is very interesting. It was very well done. There were a lot of grammatical errors that need to be fixed though. I think t...
