The Saviour of the Infinite is Death

The Saviour of the Infinite is Death

The immortal tears out her brittle hair in anguish.

Not a single passing tongue expresses sympathy; compassion floods no eye.

A vessel once pure and whole becomes shattered with the suffering of a million mortals.

Upon the hunched shoulders is anchored the agonizing weight of human tragedies.

Amnesia would be a saint; oblivion, an angel; death, a god.

Déjà vu – With a mocking laugh it flings her into events already lived. Redundancy, redundancy – taunting, burning, flashing; the memories – melting, spinning, dancing; vivid, violent hallucinations that mimic rapid eye movement, the silken state in which the temporary beings dream. But these dreams are nightmarish orbs of hell, taking the form of dense tar-like sludge, exuding, bursting from the cavity of her skull and melanising her flesh, organs and ancient, tattered soul.

She wishes for the sensation of falling away from life, the darkness a soothing universe of velvet. Nestled in the comforting folds of nothingness, her white skin adorned by saccharine silver chains, the heaviness pulling her gradually deeper into the marbled, honey-smooth oblivion that beckons from below.

She wishes for the sun’s streaming eyes to bear witness to her withered corpse; she wishes for poison ivy, nature’s glossy green chains, to constrict her weathered bones; locking, confining her to demise.

The saviour of the infinite is death.

Hudson: Your story was fantastic Erin! The Rising Sun was one of the first stories I read on Inkitt, and I have to say I don't regret the three to four days I spent pouring through the story.Probably the biggest strength I see in your writing is your characterisation of Eliana, Oriens, and the rest of th...

maewilde25: I am so in love with this story!!! captivated me till the very end, there wasn't a dull moment. Didn't particularly enjoy the lay out and some bits of info was missing along with how a 21 year old man amassed so much wealth that needed to be explained other than that and a few spelling errors, 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.

Marijana1: The melancholy present throughout this story has the power to influence and etch into the minds of the readers, to stay there and refuse to leave even after they have finished reading the story. This is a deep, powerful story, making the readers wonder about everything – about love, about their e...

maewilde25: I liked this, though it dragged on for over 200pages and heaven knows I did not expect the plot twist in the middle. David being Cristiãn. I was wondering when he would show up and didn't know he was there all along. it looks like there should be a sequel, please let there be a sequel. I know the...

Laraine Smith: You are a true artist! You should do this for a living! I love the imagery here! It is magical! You are magical!

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly. I do not believe the author put the apostrophes in the names just to be unique, but because the characters are supposedly of a different race than humans. They are Anmah. They should have different names a...

mullikin902: Do not start reading this book unless you have enough time to finish it in one sitting, because you will not be able to put it down! Superlative! Addictive! Deliciously wicked characters you can't get enough of. Impatiently waiting for the sequel!

SPepper: I had a hard time putting this book down even to go to sleep. The story is compelling and beautifully character driven. I hope author will make this a series.

ernbelle: When I first started this story I was a little unsettled by all of the information that appears in the prologue, and wasn't sure if I would continue. However, I am very glad I did. The plot was very well thought out and really interesting. There were not any page breaks or markers to acknowledge ...

Ayesha Shaikh: I love the twists. 😆I like how the writer describes everyone's point of view and the character development. I'm gonna read all the books by this author (current and upcoming). She's one of my favorites now. The spelling mistakes are normal no big deal, the amazing plot makes up for it. Thank you ...
