Fear Her

By Holly Flaherty All Rights Reserved ©

Thriller / Mystery

Blurb

Lucinda Cloud has a secret that even she doesn’t know; She is actually Death's daughter. A week after her 18th birthday, Lucinda is given a cloak of invisibility and an interchangeable scythe when Death visits her after 18 years of no contact. It is her turn to reap souls just like dad. Lucinda quickly gets the hang of it. But will Death's daughter keep neutral?

18 year old Death

I sighed, listening to Mother and Paula sing Happy Birthday tunelessly. I could care less about my birthday. The flat was scarcely decorated, except for a banner and cake on the table.

I scoffed, flipping my long black with blue highlights behind my shoulders. I wore mostly black, red, dark purple and dark blue. Dark colours have always appealed to me. And not just because I'm a goth.

My mother preferred lighter colours and other 'girly' stuff. She's also overbearingly sweet, it can be so sickening at times. She has the appearance of a typical mother, with short choppy blonde hair.

Paula is a bit more rough looking but not so she looks like a gangster or anything. Her hair is dark brown and in a ponytail. She wears a white shirt and dungarees. Her skin is deeply tanned. Paula is mother's wife. They met at a garage and have been together ever since.

My father's never been around. Mother told Paula that he left before she even knew she was pregnant. That's the same story she told me. Maybe it's for the best, some fathers abandon their children for all sorts of reasons. I just hope mine had a good one.

Getting annoyed, I got up from the table and trudged down the corridor to my room. My dark haven, I lovingly call it. Slamming the door slightly, I flopped onto my bed.

I'm in no way normal. I've always had an element of mystery hanging over me. It's been that way since 18 years ago.

This year was going to be different. I was about to find out.

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.

tsolaidowu: I want a continuation dammit....I loved this book and the 1st one. I can't believe this is it. I'm not ready to say goodbye to Jeff and Lorie; and the gang. Great book and storyline. You're a genius Madelyn.

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...

Tavis Ryan King: "What Happened to Charlie Carmine" is a fabulous mo-gee-toe cocktail fuelled midget orgy of psychology, fantasy and sarcasm. I laughed out loud when reading this novel so many times it made the London commuters I shared space with look at me with curious disdain - and I did not care.The protagoni...

CookieMonster911: The story overall was an adventure that is appealing to any age. The way the characters develop adds a more human characteristic to the novel. The writing style itself is amazing because you can learn every character's thoughts and emotions. The awkward love triangle and jerk moments adds to the ...
