Prologue

Alison woke up that morning feeling as if something had been inside her. She now felt empty inside. A twinge of pain pulled her to the ground. She cried out in agony, holding her stomach as blood began to cover the floor. "I-I I'm sorry." her thick accent carrying her words through the halls. With a soft thud, Alison collapsed completely...

"Who is she?" The detective spoke with an understanding demeanor. 

"Alison Marx. Student at KCC." His partner stood behind him. The detective turned, obviously surprised at her sudden appearance.

"Kidman, the hell are you doing here?" 

"My job. How did she die?" 

The examiner crouched beside the body, "According to the sown area on her abdomen, she had a botched surgery. When she stood, the trauma overtook her body and she bled out." 

"If that was true then how did she receive these burns?" Intricate burns were placed all over her body. Swirls and astrological planes surrounded her face.

"For fuck's sake Sanders. Enough with the Goddamn alien shit." Kidman left the force for a reason and this was it. 

"You want to tell me that this doesn't look strange? You think that this is just a coincidence?" Sanders screamed, startling the whole crew.

"Jesus, calm down. Yes this is suspicious, but it isn't proof that aliens exist. In fact this is just the exact opposite. This could just be some tattoo that she got in another country." Kidman examined the body. "These are constellations. Graphed correct-..." Alison's stomach collapsed and a rotting smell filled the room.

"Johnson, what the fuck is that?" Sanders half shouted from beneath his jacket that covered his mouth and nose.

"Her stomach is rotten." The examiner flipped through his papers and notes. "This isn't possible." He whispered to himself.

"Johnson. Johnson, what is it?" Kidman shook his shoulders.

"Just get her to the lab. I need more specialized eyes." Johnson glared at Sanders and stood, walked passed, and hit his shoulder intentionally. Annoyed, Sanders walked out of the apartment. 

"What the hell was that?"

"What was what?" Sanders kept his eyes straight ahead of him, walking faster. 

"Sanders."

"What?!" He spun around faster than what seemed humanly possible.

"Never...mind." Kidman stepped back, quite frankly afraid of him.

"Shit." Sanders rubbed his hand against the side of his face. "Look, Johnson and I... we-" 

Kidman cut him off, "I said never mind... This case is fucking weird, but let me guess. You're gonna be the one to solve it." 

Sanders chuckled, "Let's go grab some coffee."

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.

Olivia N J Hamel: I want this book. I love it so much. It is so enjoyable to read and to have a copy of this always, I would be very happy, to always be able to come back and look at it again.

kwilliams: I am an avid reader, and I do mean AVID and few indie authors capture my attention the way you have. I absolutely fell in love with these characters and their story. I'm usually not a fan of the cliff hanger endings (be it a series or not), but this one made me download the Kindle app just so I c...

Katy Rayne: i really enjoyed this book. i have to say i didn't know what to expect, but with every chapter that came something crucial to keep you reading happened. I was disappointed with the ending if this is for another book i will defiantly carry on reading the next book.

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...

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...

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...

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...

Erin Crowley: The concept here is really strong, but the execution is definitely lacking. Tenses, grammar, etc are all off, with at least one or more errors per 'Page' on my phone. The writing style is almost broken- sentences move into each other awkwardly, and are filled with an excess of "filler words", lik...

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...

Lauren Sanby: This is an excellent story. Very gripping and keeps your attention throughout. Hoping the author is writing a sequel because I'd love to read more about Rhi and Andreas and find out what else Rhi is able to do with her powers.

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!!

amarin8388: Bottom Line: I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys Science Fiction. During my reading, I thought many times that this would make a good story for a movie. It reminded me of the StarWars movie franchise, not because of the plot but because of the diversity of chara...
