Thriller / Mystery

Prologue.

"Violet?" Kate asked

"Yeah Mom" I yelled in a rush

"Can you get the car keys?"

"Yeah" I yelled, Running down the hall to get the keys and running to the car.

I overslept and was running late to school. When I got in the car I thought Jake looked odd.

"Jake" Screamed Kate, the car in front of them was turning and Jake ran right ahead not even stopping at the stop sign.

"I saw him okay Kate" Yelled Jake.

20 minutes on the road and they almost hit 2 cars. But suddenly we got hit bad. Kate ended up getting hit in the head hard. Jake was pushed against the steering wheel. I hit my head against the window hard. I twisted my leg and broke it. I ended up with amnesia. But I somehow remembered my mother. Kate.

"Violet" Asked a voice.

"Yeah"

Suddenly all of the doctors and nurses came into the room. Checking my eye's, vitals, blood, everything.

"I'm so glad your okay" Lavender almost jumped with excitement.

"Me to but my head hurts"

My head really hurt. The only thing I remember is that I left my house and then everything is blank. What happened to me.

"Violet?" Asked Sage.

"Yes"

"Uh honey we have to tell you something"

"Yes"

"Sage lets not tell her till she's better okay"

"Okay we'll let you go so you can get some rest and then we'll tell you tomorrow"

"Okay"

I felt my eyes heavily drop before everything went blank I wondered if it was alright for me to go to sleep. I also wanted to know what my mother meant when she said "Just remember i'll always be watching."

"Violet can you come here"

"Yeah mom"

"Violet I know this is a little out of the blue but I just want you to know that now matter what happens i'll always be watching"

"What do you mean"

"Never mind that now lets go you have school and your already late."

I knew something was wrong with me because I was wake but then I wasn't. I could hear people talking but its like a blank space.

"Will she ever wake up"

"Hopefully"

What the fuck does that mean? Am I dead? I know I'm still breathing but I just can't wake up. What if I'm in a coma? Oh my gosh I am in a coma. I've never been in a coma before but my mother has. How did she wake up? Me!. She only did because of me. So I have to get out of a coma for myself. I hope this really works. It feels like 2 days that I have been in a coma.

*Day later*

"Violet"

"Hmm" I mumbled

"Oh my your wake"

So I guess I ended up coming out of my coma after all. Miracle right. Nope guess again.

Tony Lee: Read this during my 7-hour flight. You've done a great job describing each situation, but I believe there is room for improvement. Also, the ending was a bit abrupt and I think the last part where Terry Hunter was brought in again (slight spoiler) wasn't really necessary.. But overall the story k...

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!

Atractivo Sumit: The story is an amazing blend of what we call natural, plain romance along with subtle emotions and interesting twists. The plot is so beautifully interwoven.

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.

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.

cuzley: I enjoyed this read, the romance and the "who done it" worked well together, I would recommend this story to both romance and mystery readers .

borkarprasad: Nicely laid story. Needed a little more ghost and Raven conversations. Initially, Had everyone on suspect list but satisfied by the precision to capture the killer. Waiting for more Raven and Cade adventures.

mindushree1402: It was really amazing.... I was not able to put it down..... just beyond awesome... no wonder writers do play with words... amazing storyline.... addictive too...

Deleted User: I loved this story. It was so great that I did not expect it to be this awesome. I swear to you this deserves more than just 5 stars. Beyond amazing. Kept me wanting more and I felt exactly like Emma felt while reading. Although in the beginning I did not expect anything to happen. Then, when som...

Althea Kerr: This is a tale that is all too familiar to South African readers having lived through a war era on our borders and beyond. It is obviously autobiographical as the mind under duress is so detailed and real. It has fantastic suspense if a bit disjointed - perhaps that is the fear and loneliness com...

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. [Rating: 4....

Kaitlyn Bier: This is a great story! I love how well you go into detail and emotions of Capri, and Mel. You have amazing dialogue and overall it's just a thrill to read!The only critique I could find is that some of the paragraphs should be separated. For example:-"If Nia would have just let me take the car an...

Caryn Moy: Love this series! Very well written, great plot and characters! I love time travel mysteries and this was different from anything I've read in the past! Bring on the sequel!!! I need to see the Compact get squashed!
