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.

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...

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!

BFIrving: A first rate story and well crafted, the blend of horror and action worked very well indeed and had me turning page after page. When not actually reading it, I found myself thinking about it which is always a good sign.There are quite a few grammatical and spell-checker errors but nothing anothe...

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...

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...

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.

Pille: This has been a bit different genre from what I usually read but a real delight. I like the vamps being different from cliche. I like the intriguing and unpredictable plot and the quirky characters. The only complaint I have is that I want to read more but the book run out. I hope there's going t...

Girl on Fire: Great story, line Alex!!!It really has a edge on it. It put me on edge with its thrill. Can't wait to read the rest.!!!

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...
