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.

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...

re8622: The Last Exodus quickly grabbed my attention. Almost as soon as I started reading the story, I couldn't put it down. I found that the ideas the author put forth were very thought provoking given the turmoil we have seen gradually rise over the last several years. I felt that I could understand th...

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.

internathunal: I was held captive by your sense of style. I would love to see more from you. I enjoyed this immensely.

Pablo Rojas: Love the story, at the end it is a western story, simple, yet giving hints and pieces of the situation that is happening all over ravencroft´s universe. easy to read and always keeping with the main stream story I want to keep reading about, Olafson´s adventures.

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.

Schaelz: I was intrigued from the second I started reading, and it kept my interest the whole way through. Chelsea has a way with words that will enchant you until the very end. She is very poetic with the way she mixes genres and keeps you on the edge of your seat. The main character is also very relat...

Melissa Davis: Interesting book and an enjoyable read. Had something different to it, that made me glad I picked it up.

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...

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. I felt that the main character was a bit under and over powered, as it fought for balance. The last few chapters felt too f...

Sara Grover: When I first started reading, it was a bit slow; though only because it was so information intense and fast-paced in trying to describe how this complex galactic corporation/government like entity controls known space. I would suggest maybe adding a preface to better educate the reader to help av...

Dru83: This is the second or third time I've read this one and I just love it. It has just about everything you could ever want packed into one scifi story. It still has some parts that are a little rough in terms of grammar, punctuation, and word usage, but it's still an awesome story. I love how detai...
