The Diary Of Jane

Thriller / Horror

Prologue

February 10th, 1999-

The family of three was going home after a week on a business trip, A mother, a father and a 16 year old daughter, for her age she was very bright and happy. She was the bubbly personality kind of girl, just starting to take a serious interest in boys, something that her father was not too fond of. Her father was a scientist, she liked science, so she came with him on these trips, they didn’t have much in the way of money, and her father was the only provider at the moment with her mother out of work. Her father had just gotten a major contract that might really change things for them. The young girl kept looking out the window, she pictured herself in a few months from now, maybe a year and she would be driving a car of her own. The thrill of having her freedom, even on a small level, it was the most that she had ever had, and deep inside she really felt she was ready for it.

Both of the young girl’s parents had dark hair, as did she, and looked relatively good for being the parents of a sixteen year old. The mother reached out and turn on the radio, the song “Bad Moon Rising by Credence Clearwater Revival” was playing. It was set on one of those classic rock stations, older songs like this one was all they played, it was all the young girl’s mother listened to. A bridge was coming up that lead over the river so the father slowed down, aside from it being winter the bridge was only two lanes wide and he saw a transport truck headed in the opposite lane. This wasn’t the way that they had intended to take, but with that damn pile up on the freeway, it would take hours to clear it and they would be lucky if they made it back by nightfall. He suddenly lost control of the car, it slid over a patch of black ice. The car slid out to the middle of the bridge before stopping, the truck driver slammed on the breaks, but couldn’t stop it, the transport truck and the small car collided smashing it off the bridge and into the river.

The young girl smashed her head against the seat in front of her when the car impacted the water. Her vision went blurry, the last thing she remembered was her parents screaming her name, “Kelley!” and trying to open the car’s door, it sank and was dragged along by the river. That and the song playing, like it was the theme music to a death scene, then, it all faded to black.

taosgw74: If this is the authors first attempt at writing, I'm floored. I was engrossed in the plot from the get go.

smile4me: Exciting page turner. I was barely able to put it down to go to bed. I can usually figure out the twists before they are revealed but not this time! Such a thrill to be surprised. I can hardly wait for the follow up!!

skippybash12: This story has engaging characters that you care about and a plot that is unpredictable and exciting. It is well written with a believable voice. Great weekend escape and if there was a sequel available I would buy it today -

rachelrainford6: This probably has to be one of the best books I've read on here. I read it quite quickly and I'll have to say the story took a turn towards the end that I did not see coming. The topic discussed in this book such as life really gave me a new insight and I realize that it is taken for granted.

Alex Rushmer: I read the first chapter, and I'm not sure I can handle anymore, but I certainly liked what I read. The idea of the drug, Fortis, was very interesting, and I enjoyed how you conveyed its effects. The beginning is very intriguing. I think I'd like to see you do a little more with the main characte...

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.

kaac127: Personally, I loved this novel so much. You developed characters well, and your plot advancement was at the perfect pace. I've recommended it to several people so far and will continue to recommend it for some time. I want a sequel!!!!

Girl on Fire: Great story, line Alex!!!It really has a edge on it. It put me on edge with its thrill. Can't wait to read the rest.!!!

Deleted User: This is a very clever story in the style of 19th century (and turn of the century) Gothic writing, very reminiscent of Stevenson's The Body Snatchers or even of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (less so of Frankenstein itself, since the author is more minimalist than Shelley's florid, Romantic rhetoric). ...

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!

lopezmariana97: I loved everything about this book. I read it in a weekend because it was so hard to put down. I real liked that it wasn't a typical demon story and that It didn't involve vampires. I pictured the cast for this book if it ever becomes a movie. 100% love

harry142018: This story was gripping and very professionally written. With lots of twists and slight of hand tricks, the author deceives the reader until finally showing their cards at the end. With several subplots all intertwining to create the main plot, this really is an interesting and engaging read.

C J Lawson: Nicely done. Good story with good characters, as well. I was very entertained by the story line, from beginning to end. I would definitely read more of this author's work.
