Outside the old rusted gates and handmade wooden fences that shut the small town from the outside world, was nothing but fog, darkness and an eerie silence. I watched as a group of soldiers stood near the gate, hearing them talk in hushed tones. They were planning to kill. What you ask? They called it a 'Nightingale'. I don't really understand why. What is a Nightingale? I heard their guns and knives tapping against the gate in nervous anticipation as one walked towards the lever to open it. I was nervous for them. The gate slowly opened increasing tensions further, there was not a thing in sight just silence and fog.

A silence that was quickly broken with a loud screech followed by an endless clicking. It was close.

Everything was over quickly after the gate closed behind them. They disappeared into the fog, then their screams and cries followed, then the silence returned with the occasional click that came from that thing. You could just about make out a hand or leg of someone trying to escape. There was a group of us watching, not a single person dared venture out and help them. They weren't seen again.

This was a lost battle, but the war was not done.

How many more would these monsters take before they're satisfied?

How long will we last before we become the monsters?

Hali Bonsall: The story line is great. Characters are likeable but lack depth. Honestly the story line kept me, a picky reader, not wanting to put the book down. My only criticism would have to be the lack of character depth and the time line.

IAteYourCookieChild: I've never seen, no, experienced a more three-dimensional character then Iris. Truly. Every time I read these tangible words on a screen, I feel like I've been betrayed by my own reality as it feels like much more than just that. More than words on a screen. As if I'm truly seeing Iris, living Ir...

Isabella Lunawood: Cassandra Farelli is a short but wonderful read - it leaves you thinking, makes you ask questions and leaves you guessing! It is a spin off series from Fusion of Fantasy, in which Cassandra is mentioned in, ‘In Dreaming Reality’ and in which she has a much bigger role - this book shows where she ...

MrsHickey: Overall it was a good book and I did enjoy it, however there were a lot of spelling mistakes or missing words in sentences.

mochigotjams: This novel messed with me in more ways than I can imagine, but I’m not complaining.

Elizar: I spent all day reading this when I found it this morning. There were some places where words were spelled wrong but that didn’t affect the story or anything.

AudreyInAshes: I think this book is a really great modern-age thriller. The idea of the drug and its symptoms were explained generously, and while I did really enjoy this I just want to add that there is some mild gore and the killing of a pet (sorry to spoil, but I like to be prepared.) It is very interesting,...

DarkWolf .12: Very interesting plot! Had me up for the entire night. Keep up the good work 👍

Juzme34: The author catches the emotions of both the patient and the lead scientist well. Te reader can't help but wonder how waking a person up is going to save the human race, let alone prove cy-humans aren't horrible.. But the story does need a good editing. Sometimes the words are the wrong tense, a ...
