Chapter 1: Where I began

My first memory is of lying on a table, staring up at the brightly lit, pure white ceiling.  Above me a man with dark skin and oddly pale eyes stood, staring.  He was staring at me.  "Well just look at you.  Definitely my best so far."  He caressed the side of my face.  It was the first time I'd ever experienced human contact.  "You really are beautiful."  He slapped me and I flinched.  "Good, very good.  Automatic responses seem to be working.  Now how about those vocal cords, well," he snorted, "what acts like them."  He glared at me.  "Come on then," his voice was angry now, "say something!"

"I'm not sure what you want me to say."

"Ha."  The short burst of laughter made me tense, "man, I really like you.  Soon as we're done testing you I'm send your pattern straight to mass production, assuming there are no problems."  The next part was said in a mutter that to this day I'm not sure was intended for my ears.  "Though I'll have to change the skin pattern, you're just for me."  He walked out of my line of sight and I tried to turn my head to follow but found it restrained.  This was the first time I found myself unable to move my own body but it wouldn't me the last.

He walked back into my view holding a thin, metal device.  I did not like that device, I had no idea what made me so sure but I knew, I hated that device.  “I have a few more tests to run but don’t worry” he smiled at me.  “We’ll see each other in a week or two.  Sleep well my little beauty.”  He turned the device over so that it pointed directly down at me and pressed his thumb into a small panel near its tip making a blue light glow on the end nearest me.  I jerked my hands up to cover my face but again I found I could not move myself; my arms like my head was secured to the metal work table on which I lay.  “Don’t worry my little beauty, this won’t hurt at all.”  He was lying.  He lowered the device, inserting it into my eye.  I tried to shut it but his fingers were on my eye lids keeping them wide.

Everything in the book is meshed together really well. From character backgrounds to plot twists, you can t...

ericaporamoralcine: La trama es muy interesante y original y eso ya dice muchísimo cuando todos tratan de triunfar con ideas ya trilladas.No puedo opinar en detalle sobre la gramática, porque a pesar de entender el inglés a la perfección, la falta de uso en cuanto a lectura y diálogo hacen que me maneje bastante mal...

re8622: The Last Exodus quickly grabbed my attention. Almost as soon as I started reading the story, I couldn't put it down. I found that the ideas the author put forth were very thought provoking given the turmoil we have seen gradually rise over the last several years. I felt that I could understand th...

Jean Tryon: As a beta, I found this story outstanding!! Plot, grammar, phraseology, etc Rachel gives us it all. She takes the story into the future from where due South ends. She is an exacting and thoughtful author.

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 ...

Kelsey Miller: Page turner set in a gritty future. Loads of flavor and depth that makes the pages fly by until like me you are at the end of the book wanting more!The world is developed to the point it begs more stories set in this harsh reality. More adventures from Daryl and thr crew.

Christopher Chew: Been a while since reading was this fun. The plot was easy to follow and built at a gradual but good pace. The dynamics between each character were interesting and kept things fresh and exciting, very much so that you would forgive it for not going deeper into the back stories of each character. ...

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.
