The Dream

It was a beautiful sunny day at the resort on a cliff by the ocean. The ocean waves calmly drifted in and out as they approached the cliffs stonewall within the cove. Directly above the cove sits a bridge that allows you to cross from one side of the resort to other without having to journey around. In the distance a woman walks down the long grassy hill with her nine year old niece towards a set of tables near the edge of the cliff to meet with their family for brunch. Along the way they see the bridge and decide to stop near it at small stonewall. As they look over the edge they see waves about forty feet below. The little girl spots a guard standing on the bridge. She points at him. The woman says "We don't want to go over there, if we fall in we might get eaten by sharks." The woman wrapped her arms around the little girl and digs her chin into her neck to resemble a shark gnawing on it. The little girl laughs. They head to the table to meet with the family. As they sit down the woman notices that a storm is moving in. Wind push the waves harder into shore. The woman looks out to sea. In the distance she sees what appears to be the New York City skyline. The storm gets closer. When she looks back towards the table to tell her family what she has just seen they are gone. She stands up and looks around. Everyone is gone. The perfect sunny day has turned into a cloudy gloomy one. As they woman walks to the bridge and looks over she sees that the waves are high now, almost to the top of the cliff.  As she looks closer into the water she sees a fin. She freezes. At that moment she is experiencing her greatest fear, a great white shark. The waves rise higher soaking the grassy knoll. The woman begins to run up the hill but it's too late, the great white is moving in closer, gaining on her. As she tries to run up the slippery grass she takes one last look behind her to find that the shark is on her tail. The woman slips. BLACK.

Bboyjoon: A brilliant but unsettling story about 5 murders committed by a serial killer. This novel scared me a little bit and I have to commend you for being able to do that. I wanted to know if you’ve actually met a serial killer before. I mean the way you’ve described the mind of a psychopath is extreme...

mrh: This interesting take on the Harry Potter series fascinated me from line one on. I am in love with this tale and its characters and cannot wait to read the next chapter. I look forward to more soon.When can I expect the next chapter? I am so excited to read it!

Deidre L. Swain: I understood where the story was going but the writing skills were lacking a lot. There are some places that had no flow. The plot was good which is what kept me reading the whole story. I think the author shows promise. They just need to tighten up on their skills to really get it going

Sammi Chan: THIS WAS AMAZING!!! My favorite part of this story was the slow build of Merlin and Arthur's relationship. Their relationship was rlly nicely fleshed out and so good :) The way that you handled the magic reveal was super enjoyable. I rlly liked the switching POVs. Good!Mordred was cute and I'm rl...

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...

ronaldpolk: I can honestly say that I truly enjoyed this story. Yes there were times I thought to put it down and start another, but some of the characters called me back. The pace was appropriately slow in some places and engaging in others. I related to Steve and Ron, all characters had just the right amou...

ank1983: I really enjoyed this story and I read through it quickly. I found it very entertaining and some of your scenes were very well written and descriptive. Every time a chapter ended I couldn't wait to start the next chapter. What girl hasn't fantasized over a cute teacher at school?! The story did...

sujitha nair: What's so distinct about this story was that it could easily be real. Praveena can be your classmate, neighbor or that girl you saw at the coffee shop today. The important decisions she makes and the dilemmas she faces, remind us of our own twisted lives.

ritafullerton: This book had me hooked at the beginning. I loved the premise of the book. The grammar was a bit off. But the book was overall good. I am not sure if this is the authors first book but I look forward to seeing more from this author.

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

sibyleisley: Right away, I was charmed by the characters in Nothing Between Us. Bella is fun to follow and SO easy to relate to, and Jace is the guy that you could spend 24/7 with and not get sick of him. And together, they're adorable and so right for each other. The writer did such a great job making me car...
