Alicia Chay has come face to face with a harrowing past she forced herself to forget in the form of her Holy Ghost, a pregnant vampire named Kleopha Achieng she's been trying to kill for months. Kleopha changed her name to Alicia in 3 B.C. after killing her husband, Zulu, and her bestfriend, Chanteuse, when she caught them together, in The Village of Opus, making love behind her back. Learning that her pregnant Ghost has been hunting her with the same tenacity as she has hunted the Ghost deeply saddened her. Kleopha's Ghost can't inhabit Alicia's body because Alicia uses the Original Queen Mother Armona's body as a host. Kleopha must stop the Imposing War between the Lion and Wolf Tribes. But there's one problem: Alicia (Kleopha) has become an evangelist in the Rainbow of color from the phony Messiah (Doneshius), the Guardian of the Rainbow. And the more she believes in Christ, the more human she becomes. Her decision has angered the Devil and every supernatural creature from every Realm. An old foe has awakened from slumber because of Alicia's new found faith. Evil forces wants Alicia and her unborn children destroyed, now that the Treaty of Animals has been eradicated...

Prelude: HOW COULD HE...?

How could he be in love with me…
If he didn’t even love what we created together?
My adversary spun from Doneshius's porcelain skin, a little rugged around the edges. And his father separated from his mother, as if resting inside of her until the meeting, and, inevitably…the battle.

I was caught off guard.

Protectively, I held my belly and sucked in stale air. I was ready to strike if I had to; and only if I had to. I would not make the first move. I would not knowingly put my children in danger. But as their mother I have to fight with every breath in my body for their survival of the fittest, the fittest of the vampiric realm was before my eyes, ready to kill me and my children.

It saddened me that Doneshius allowed this to happen. How could he be in love with me if he didn’t even love what we created together?

A seductive aura radiated from her limbs, bedazzled in tarnished gold and rust. The way she moved nearly put me in a trance, but I was immune against them now, so her plan failed in an instant.

Her husband, my fledgling, held his ears and his eyes rolled to the back of his head and his piercing scream came at me in twenty ripples of motion, snarling and snapping jaws at my pregnant belly.

I disintegrated into particles and floated around their generation of heat, and by the time the ripples crashed into the ocean nine hundred feet away, I formed into who I used to be and that’s when he attacked.

He kicked me in the side and, sprinting as fast as speed could travel, his wife jumped in the air, her legs jack-knifed, and she kicked me in the face, grabbing my hair, yanking me into her face and she kissed me, dropping me on the ground.

Her husband put his foot on my belly, and my eyes turned dark black, as black as black could get, and I saw blood. I numbed and calmed myself.

I said, “Please! I want to be human again, don’t stand in the way of that, and don’t stand in the way of change. Think of my children, please! They art innocent in all of this!”

Doneshius lowered his head and closed his eyes, taking a few steps back towards the clearance behind him.

Punk!

Sissy!

Ye stand there and do nothing?

I just lost all respect for ye if thy decision is made.

He glanced up into my eyes and I held them, letting all my anger show, letting it display itself any way that it wanted to so it could get its message across that I was never going to be the same if anything happened to my unborn children.

She scowled. “We were innocent in all of this before thy children came into existence, so that angle won’t work on us, but the act ye put on was rather lovely if ye ask me, but a bit overrated and overdone. Ye pouted and ye cried, but of thy eyes not a tear formed, and that hardened me against anything ye may have to say.”

I said, “I will be human again, and if I have to single-handedly kill ye both it will come to pass.”

She tilted her head back and laughed so hard it annoyed the hell outta me.

My children kicked me in the side from inside my womb. I knew what that meant.

Kick the bitch’s ass.

Patience, babies.

They’ll…slip up.

Hawkebat: Playing both Kotor I & II and Swtor I found the story line interesting and it held me until chapter 35 Very good story and plot flow until then, very few technical errors.

Dru83: This is the second or third time I've read this one and I just love it. It has just about everything you could ever want packed into one scifi story. It still has some parts that are a little rough in terms of grammar, punctuation, and word usage, but it's still an awesome story. I love how detai...

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...

Alex Rushmer: This was not what I expected, but I enjoyed it a lot Malfoy was always one of the characters that I liked a lot, so I like that a lot of this happens between him and Colette. I read the first couple chapters, and I enjoyed your writing style and am excited to see where you take this story. My com...

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...

SandraHan1: This story is very descriptive, with vivid scenes from the very beginning, which made for a good scene setting. I love the symbolism in names, such as “Naysayers”, “Hadd”, etc . The story itself is revolutionary, intriguing, emotional and exciting. I was very pleased to see that there is a happy ...
