Mystery / Horror

Prologue

He stood by the window. The sunlight that came in through the glass illuminated the dusty attic. Although the light touched his skin but he seemed care less. He'd been living with it for many years that when living humans count, they would get shocked. With both hands clasped in front of him, he looked out of the window, watching an unfamiliar, black car slowly entered the front yard. He looked emotionless as he kept his eyes on the car. Two seconds after that, the car stopped.

Even with the tinted car window, he could see a couple sitting at the front - the husband on the driver seat and the wife on the shotgun. Both of them looked around the house from inside of the car while unbuckling the seat belt. The wife looked amused. She looked surprised and impressed with the house she's seeing and she looked like she couldn't wait to come into the house and discover the inner house herself. Smiling, the wife turned to look at her husband. Her mouth moved, indicating she's saying something like, "It's beautiful," to her husband.

When the car's doors opened, he didn't expect the couple to have children. Wait, no, they only have a child. A girl. She looked innocent and naive by the way she dressed. Since it's autumn and the weather wasn't that cold, she wore something not too thick but not too exposing. A descent sundress and sandals were enough to make her looked beautiful. Her hair was in a braid that slung over her shoulder. When her eyes looked around the house, like her mother, she looks amused. Her big lime eyes sparkled as she eyed every corner of the house.

Still standing by the window, he watched her. Like he was frozen, he stood there still. He looked starstruck by the way he looked at her unblinking. His mouth gaped as he eyed her. He couldn't get his eyes off of her. His eyes followed where she's heading to and blamed the car for hiding her when she was getting her stuffs in the trunk. He became excited when she appeared once again, walking with her mother to the entrance with her bags. The corner of his mouth twitched and turned into a smirk.

He didn't notice when a boy came into the room as he was busy watching the family or specificially her, but he didn't flinch when he heard a voice close behind him. "New incomer?" asked the boy to him, soft and raspy.

Still smirking from the effect of the girl, he nodded his head. Then he turned and faced the boy. "And I guess we're going to have a girl to be our new member."

Alex Rushmer: I read the first chapter, and I'm not sure I can handle anymore, but I certainly liked what I read. The idea of the drug, Fortis, was very interesting, and I enjoyed how you conveyed its effects. The beginning is very intriguing. I think I'd like to see you do a little more with the main characte...

matrixmark: I thought that the introduction to this was relly well written and structurally sound in its presentation.The introduction to the cabin in the woods was good too. To me, it felt like a Blair Witch of yesteryear, but the things which you added in about the mutilated boys were certainly something n...

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!

lopezmariana97: I loved everything about this book. I read it in a weekend because it was so hard to put down. I real liked that it wasn't a typical demon story and that It didn't involve vampires. I pictured the cast for this book if it ever becomes a movie. 100% love

Marimar Amieva: Although I found the vampire thing a bit too much, I couldn't stop reading it. The story had a bit of everything: mystery, romance, a huge plot twist and relatable characters. I congratulate the author for this story and hope to read more of whatever he writes.

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...

C.K. Bachman: Just read the first chapter. Love how the main character thinks and is conflicted over his wife and the trickery he uses on her.

Tony Lee: Read this during my 7-hour flight. You've done a great job describing each situation, but I believe there is room for improvement. Also, the ending was a bit abrupt and I think the last part where Terry Hunter was brought in again (slight spoiler) wasn't really necessary.. But overall the story k...

PaulSenkel: A real page-turner. The main character takes getting used to which retrospectively is a good thing.

Katy Rayne: i really enjoyed this book. i have to say i didn't know what to expect, but with every chapter that came something crucial to keep you reading happened. I was disappointed with the ending if this is for another book i will defiantly carry on reading the next book.

The contrast between rich and poor is very evident too.The storyline actually sheds a compelling light on why women in certain countries sell themselves just to help their families or even to survive themselves.
