Thriller / Horror


   “Carol!!” She yells, tears flowing down her face. Carol’s face is filled with panic, her eyes are wide and she's clearly out of breath. “Diane!!” Carol desperately screams “HELP ME!!” Diane can see him behind her. His eyes soulless, pitch black eyes. Click-clack! Click-clack! His expression is calm, collective and unfazed by the flakes of dried blood falling off his cheeks as he reached out and grabbed Carol’s arm “Here!” Diane sees him raise a bloody fire axe with his other hand “Take my hand!” As soon as their hands lock, the floor suddenly collapses, a steel pipe launched out, hitting Diane on the head, knocking her unconscious.

    The water hitting the small puddles all around her created a nice rhythmic sound that is almost soothing, like small rain drops within a hollow cave. She could feel her eyes trying to force themselves open, but she felt so relax, at peace with herself. Click-clack! Click- clack! that sound sent a jolt of adrenaline within her system forcing her to spin around, pushing off debris of wood and sheet metal off of her back. She studies the area, But all she could see is the mangled metal and pipes dripping water beside her. It’s dark; with a single ray of light several feet ahead of her. The panting she’s letting out is creating a large echo and the pain within her is making it worse. “Where am I?” she thought, rubbing her head. the right side of her body is extremely sore and almost numb.

  She winched as she slowly stood up and suddenly, the image of her friend reaching out to her appeared in her head. “Carol!” she began to look around erratically, tripping over broken sheet rock and small air ducts.  “Carol, Where are you!?” From a distance, just underneath the ray of light, she could see Carol’s hand limp on the ground. Her silver ‘class of 13’ engrave bracelet glistening from the light overhead, giving the appearance of a small hidden treasure “C… Carol…” Diane reached out and touched Carol’s hand; her fingers felt cold, clammy “Carol, are you…” She began to scream as she realized she's holding Carol’s severed arm.  She toss the arm behind her and looks around. It's just stone debris, twisted metal and overturned furniture everywhere. Her breathing echoes heavily through the hollow halls. 

  She then heard that teeth chatter, click-clack, click-clack, click-clack. Her eyes widen, she could feel her heart racing and body tremble. Click-clack, click-clack, click-clack. Diane jumped up and began to bang on the metallic wall. “Marcus! Ms. Cruz! Paulie! Anyone! Anyone!!” A loud snap echoes around her and the floor begins t vibrate. “Oh no, not again!” Suddenly the floor collapsed, she screams, but this time she only dropped a few feet. She quickly fell on her knees and braced herself for any falling debris. She then hears a small ping in front of her, she slowly opened her eyes and sees Carol’s bracelet. She reached out; she could hear Carol’s faint laughter in her mind as she picks up the bracelet and holds it close to her bosom. Her body began to shake once again as she rest her back against the steel wall. “Someone, please save me…”

Spring: I normally don't read fiction novels, but I absolutely enjoyed reading Silent Shadows! The style is quite different from the previous fiction novels I've attempted to read. Great job!

Diane April: Really liked the concept of this story. The beginning had a great explanation about how things worked in the real world that people tend to overlook. It was a nice change from the usual zombie story that just makes things up as they go along and actual facts don't matter.

Ali Albazaz: I started reading "Caged" few hours ago and I'm on chapter 7 now. Caged is definitely one of the most addictive stories I've ever read. Thank you so much for writing this novel.

Sara Joy Bailey: The characters are well written, 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.

taosgw74: If this is the authors first attempt at writing, I'm floored. I was engrossed in the plot from the get go.

Deleted User: This is a very clever story in the style of 19th century (and turn of the century) Gothic writing, very reminiscent of Stevenson's The Body Snatchers or even of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (less so of Frankenstein itself, since the author is more minimalist than Shelley's florid, Romantic rhetoric). ...

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...

skippybash12: This story has engaging characters that you care about and a plot that is unpredictable and exciting. It is well written with a believable voice. Great weekend escape and if there was a sequel available I would buy it today -

Alex Reltin: This is a great story! I love how well you go into detail and emotions of Capri, and Mel. You have amazing dialogue and overall it's just a thrill to read!The only critique I could find is that some of the paragraphs should be separated. For example:-"If Nia would have just let me take the car an...

Alex Rushmer: I really love your writing style in this story. Usually the whole narration from a journal sort of thing doesn't work for me, but you really pull it off here.
