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.

Jason Phang: I'm pretty new to Inkitt (this is only my 4th book) and I must say I've been thoroughly impressed by the quality of the authors here. Remnants of Chaos is an excellently written book that hooks the reader, and doesn't let go. There are some grammatical and typographical errors, but nothing too se...

Kashaf Azmat: The concept is excellent everything is well defined that you can picture the whole scenario which makes you feel connected to the plot and this is the thing that catches my eye and this what i am looking for in every novel.Keep it up

kim: This is great! Maybe it could just be a little more specific. One of the keys to great writing is describing things in detail. I think you're off to a great start. I wish you much luck.

Deleted User: It was a great hook. I do not like reading scifi because they end up being like all the rest but this one kept me wanting more.

Kayresia A. Bass: Loved it. Author did some insane research to bring this story to life. A little short for my taste, but an awesome story nonetheless.

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...

Ding Fernando: very nice read.so realistic you can hardly put it down,i really like the character so human despite posessing immortality and eternal youth.though i would prefer a better ending..i still love this novel and i am recommending it to all sci fi fans to give it a try .you will love it too!!

Emperor2000: I joined Inkitt and downloaded this book following a friend who has been on here sometime recommending it. After they spoke about it a bit, I thought why not give it a go. Initially I only expected to read a few chapters, as I have little time to spend reading (not as much as I like). However I c...

SandraHan1: This story is very descriptive, with vivid scenes from the very beginning, which made for a good scene setting. I love the symbolism in names, such as “Naysayers”, “Hadd”, etc .

Hawkebat: Playing both Kotor I & II and Swtor I found the story line interesting and it held me until chapter 35 Very good story and plot flow until then, very few technical errors.
