Unopened , a sharp pin-pointointed  jaggered edged knife reveals itself alongside a goblet of solid bronze filled with the encandescent  fluid of its deadly flower preserved  .

 4.55 am just outside dajans shop ,a short few yards away -police were seen cornering off the area uncovering , any evidence left behind . Inquisitive  , he has to be nosy and do his little investigation of his own by weirdly questioning the police who havent got a clue -yet - they've got this old fart trying to do their job .
"Listen sir , leave us to get on with our enquiries"  says the seargent " just trying to help " says Dajan " Let me -  No im not gonna tell you again sir , LEAVE Seargent is called over by the detective , " on my way " - walking over dajan takes a sneaky

" isn't  this  beautiful" say's dajan , " Yeahhh its not a bad sight at all , " replies ordan !!pottering about ready to close up ordan stands here agasped at the symphony before his eyes not realising dajan has been calling him for the last five minutes to help shut up shop - he finally here's dajan calling after he throws a piece of splintered wood at his back with just a suggestion of a finger pointing directly to the shutters" Ow that hurt " says ordan " Well , it got your attention didn't it " says dajan Come on im not standing here all night Shutters : withered :  making a jarring noise so loud it defens the sound of time disabling your senses for a short period . With all the comotion , something is lurking in the shadows fueling his fire . Peering down king street from the top of the road apollyon stands dissapearing in and out of the  fog . pure red eyes , burning lavar climbing through the old aged rocks rising the heat of the concrete to an unbearable ferocity - standing there with his arms open, with just  a turn of his hands-  the earths centre starts shaking , hairline cracks appear pertruding the concrete walls finally breaking through demolishing the road around himself with flowing lavar burning anything in its wake .earths liquid flowing , he walks on the burning lavar heading towards the old victorian building with front facing clock . Between two columns is a redwood framed two  door encased with embellished carving of oakleafs in the stain glass windows , door knobs : carved ivory engraved with a single oakleaf .Upon opening both doors , the cold night air  seaps in fuelling the walls with life and warmth that was once lost through time - a grand staircase with two wings leading from the centre  platform , " Home " Says Apollyon .

cicheah: Very well-knit story which sustains one's interest from beginning to end. Most enjoyable and a pleasure to read.

John Smith: This is what Sci Fi is all about. Reads like early Heinlein. In the style of Space Cadets. No esoteric problems..but good ol blaster and space action with a host of relatable characters

hypaalicious: This story follows two main characters, Zoey and Derek, on a winding adventure that sucks you in from the beginning.

Sara Joy Bailey: The characters are well written, full of depth and life. The plot was thrilling. The author's style flows naturally and the reader can easily slip into the pages of the story. Very well done.

Tanya Daigle Rusheon: This book is a long and twisty tale full of sweet romance, adorable fluff, anxiousness, trust issues, mind games, things that don't make sense until suddenly they do, heartache and reconciliation just when you need it the most. If that all sounds a bit vague, it's because I really don't want to s...

Diane April: Really liked the concept of this story. The beginning had a great explanation about how things worked in the real world that people tend to overlook. It was a nice change from the usual zombie story that just makes things up as they go along and actual facts don't matter.
