Rewind

Imagine yesterday. 

Hit your mind's rewind button. You woke up fumbling for the shrieking alarm clock and you drank orange juice after brushing your teeth. You sniffed the clothes you wore two days before, deciding that you could wear them again. Rush hour was the usual, frustration and smog and middle fingers. An unfamiliar Mercedes was in your parking space. Your boss chewed you out in front of everyone for being late, even though that five-car pile-up was certainly beyond your control. Instead of taking a lunch break, you choked down a dry turkey sandwich while scrolling through endless work emails. You were unfairly scapegoated during the afternoon meeting by that backstabbing asshole Hendersen, never mind that he was the one that provided the wrong figures for the report in the first place. You were asked to stay late, even though you had plans, and the boss wasn't really asking because you knew that if you said no he would remember it the next time that people needed to be laid off.  By the time you cleared everything out of your inbox, it was dark outside.

You wake up, knowing by the brightness of the street lights that it's only just past midnight. You wonder how long you've been asleep. You feel itchy. When you go to scratch, you find that you are still fully clothed, and that your clothes are covered with a sickening-feeling crust. The smell of stale copper fills your nostrils. It's on your face and in your hair and under your nails. You don't know what happened. You don't want to know what happened. You have to know. You have to know.

Imagine yesterday.

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.

Girl on Fire: Great story, line Alex!!!It really has a edge on it. It put me on edge with its thrill. Can't wait to read the rest.!!!

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). ...

AGrace: I really liked this. It was different and I loved all the characters. The crystals were a cool idea and i love reading about witches.

gunter1987: I just want to say here that this is my first review, but I really wanted to review this story. I apologize if I don't write English to well, I am French.Reading through the many science fiction stories posted here and other places in the world, I started to see a few linking themes: heavy-hande...

nightdrummer: Best story ever. The characters are real, flawed, people I relate to because although they have unbelievable talents they also fail, and get stuff wrong. This should be a series. Alpha is the most interesting hero and Martel's scary/real. I love Sunday.

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

E_W_Hemmings: First of all, sorry this review took so long: I've had science mocks recently and then when I came to read this, I made notes to put in the review like I usually do... but then I deleted them. Well done me. As a result, this review is a bit more general than most reviews I write, but hey ho, let'...

: 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?

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!

cicheah: Very well-knit story which sustains one's interest from beginning to end. Most enjoyable and a pleasure to read.

pikagirl311: Katie Masters has definite skill when it comes to plot work and characters. The story is well-paced and pulls you along with the tide, keeping you hooked until the very end. The only reason I did not give it five stars across the board is due to a few minor quibbles with misspellings and such lik...

Clarissa: Very atmospheric and descriptive language, with good character development. This is a complex and interesting story - definitely worth a read.
