Scifi / Horror

Chapter 1

I can’t remember the last time I woke up with a headache this bad. I racked my brain trying to remember what I did last night. Was there a party? I didn’t think so. Usually I remember the parties. So what happened? I racked my brain trying to think, but I just couldn’t remember. I got up and stumbled to the kitchen to get a glass of water, then made my way to the porch to get some fresh air. It was a beautiful morning. The clear sky gave way to a brilliant sunrise. I loved coming out on mornings like this to watch the sunrise and listen to the sounds of the neighborhood. That’s when I realized that something was off. I couldn’t hear any birds. I couldn’t hear any people. In fact, I couldn’t hear anything. It was dead quiet. Where was everyone? I decided to take a walk around the neighborhood to find out. The more I walked the more I grew concerned. There was no one around. No one in the supermarket. I passed an idling car in the gas station parking lot and hope rushed into my gut. When I approached the car I realized that there was no one in there either. I couldn’t find anyone. No one at all. A panic began to set in. Where was everyone? I walked back to my house and tried to call my friend Jeff that lived across town. The voice on the other end of the line politely informed me that my call could not be put through at the time. I guess the lines were down somewhere or something. I spent the rest of that day trying to find somebody. Anybody. No luck. I went to bed that night and tried to get some sleep. I hoped that maybe I could get some sleep and that I would “wake up” in the morning and find that it was all a bad dream. I woke up a short while later and I thought I heard someone outside. I checked my watch and saw that it was about 3 am. I got up to check it out, but didn’t see anything. I assumed it was my imagination and went back to bed.

Dru83: This is perhaps my favorite part of the Olafson story just because it is here that were are introduced to his "gang". The characters are so diverse and complicated that each of them could just about spawn their own story. Eric's buddies are just so captivating and the plot just rolls along. Again...

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...

debmart6901: I could not put this story down. I stayed up reading when I should have been in bed. could not get enough, could not wait to find how it ended. Great story telling. Great detail. Loved it. The characters were very vivid.

Dave Baxter: Generally, a good story. The plot was a bit predictable but not overly so. The first bit might have been better if it instead focused on how the main character becomes a host and not with how humans first interact with the aliens. This might allow more recognition of the various transitions sh...

Kelsey Miller: Page turner set in a gritty future. Loads of flavor and depth that makes the pages fly by until like me you are at the end of the book wanting more!The world is developed to the point it begs more stories set in this harsh reality. More adventures from Daryl and thr crew.
