Mystery / Horror

Chapter 1: Void

"They aren't real." Silence. The creak of a door. The shuffling of footsteps.

"Don't come one step closer!" Silence. The darkness consumes every corner. If there were corners. But there isn't, only the infinite stretch of void. I ask myself where the footsteps are coming from. I try to look at my pale hands. However, I can't see. Why does such a place like this exist? Why am I in it? Who am I?

I don't focus on my questions when I hear the creak of old wood.

"Who are you?!" I scream at the pit of darkness. The shuffling stops. I start to think that maybe I am right. Maybe I am alone, and that whatever I think is coming for me is really just my imagination. Perhaps this could be proof of my insanity. Maybe-

I feel a cold, stiff hand on my shoulder. I don't move. My small frame instantly stiffens at the contact. I feel a cold breath on my neck, making my hair stand on end. The creature- the thing behind me, moves closer to my ear. "You can't run here." It whispers in a low rumble. I shiver at the words.

Every muscle in my body had decided to stiffen, but I can't help the rush of adrenaline making my heart beat out of my chest. I want this nightmare to end! Tears run down my cheeks as a bloodcurdling scream echos into nothingness.

And then I start to shake. Light suddenly appears. I look behind me to see what exactly was there...

But there is nothing.

Gayle Gunderson Boyce: I loved the book. Couldn't stop reading it. The story was good with a strong build up of suspense and sense of urgency to catch the killer. All clues pointed to Talbot yet enough things didn't add up to keep us looking and thinking. Jack Creed is a likeable character with lots of gut experience. ...

Lydia Walters: I really enjoyed this novel. It gives us a view of what could be if we really tried.Also that there's nothing wrong with loving our LORD and our fellow humans. couldn't wait to get to each new chapter (mission). Thanks, Joe!

mcase: I really enjoyed this story. Felt drawn to Cami as a genuine person. Great characters with funny honest perspective. Many subplots made this continually interesting. I was never bored and thought the overall plot was intriguing. I do wish that some elements had been excluded, such as some extrane...

William Elliott Kern: Long story, the plot uncovered midway through the story. From beginning, the story was fast moving. Then dragged on for quite some time. The Author was good in describing her characters, their clothing, etc. but a lot of that disclosure distracted from the story moving fast.Not withstanding, the...

Atractivo Sumit: The story is an amazing blend of what we call natural, plain romance along with subtle emotions and interesting twists. The plot is so beautifully interwoven.

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!

Bri Hoffer: I couldn't put it down!! The characters are all incredibly likable, and it's so descriptive you can see, smell, and feel thier surroundings. Great story, and very well written. I cannot wait for follow up stories. there were a few grammatical errors, but nothing that I could move right over.

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.

gabita123mb: The characters are well described, you can feel every emotion, the places are well described, and there are just like 2-3 words that have grammar mistakes. Read it, you will have a lot of fun, tears in your eyes, worry, anger, love, and awkward moments is a perfect book.
