Glass Playtime

His head was bleeding. It had begun to pore rapidly as he ran out of the cell. After listening to the cries of a woman having her eyes taken out, Aiden had forcefully banged his head against the glass window in order to come up with a passable weapon. At first, the window only managed to cause him a serious headache but after a few slams the window indicated a spidery crack with reminiscent of blood. The crack fueled him to keep hitting the window with everything he had until he heard the glass shatter. Aiden quickly grabbed ahold of a shard of glass, cutting his hand along the way, and made his way to the woman. Her capturer was too focused on the task before him to notice as Aiden entered the room. Aiden noticed the woman spilled atop a metal table with half her flesh missing from her face. Her eyes had been ripped from its sockets and had left behind a bloody mess with parts of skin dangling from the side. It reminded him of pizza when you pulled the cheese away from the other slices. Her eyes were placed in a blender and liquefied to a watery substance. The capturer with a cruel smile poured the liquid down the woman’s mouth and forced her to swallow it. The woman gurgled in repulse and kept from spitting out the contents. The capturer covered her mouth with its clawed hands but could not stop all the vomit from seeping through his fingers. Aiden could not witness one more second of the display and took an attentive step forward.

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.

Barbara Zavela: Do you know the song, 'Imagine' by John Lennon?If you had a chance for a world like the one described in that song, would you grab it with both hands or turn away and reject it.This story pulls you in from the beginning with well-written scenarios. The author offers you the opportunity to bring y...

Marimar Amieva: I just can't believe the story! I absolutely loved it, all of it. The characters and their chemistry between them, and the fact that they are relatable. The story also has some sick plot twists, which I never saw coming. I loved the fact that it is an adorable love story but has its mystery touc...

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.

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 ...

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...

Gayle Gunderson Boyce: I loved the book. Couldn't stop reading it. The story was good with a strong build up of suspense and sense of urgency to catch the killer. All clues pointed to Talbot yet enough things didn't add up to keep us looking and thinking. Jack Creed is a likeable character with lots of gut experience. ...

NRF: I love this story, it has a little bit of everything in it, mystery, adventure, murder, innocence, love and a surprise twist that will leave you hungry for more! Great read! NRF

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...

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.
