Tale of a Journey

I walked along the dusty road, unsure of where it would take me. I had one thing on my mind, and that was finding a cure for the disease that ravaged my village, and had killed half of the population. I knew that I was also suffering from the disease, and didn't have more than a week, before I would be dead.
Over the next two days, I overcame countless obstacles, and braved many miles. I finally reached my destination, when I saw the large north wall of what was once a hospital. I had grew up, only hearing about such buildings. They, along with the rest of all the cities, were left abandoned when the storm came.
Any living organism, touched by this rain, melted away within seconds. Nothing was left of them, except their clothes. It made me shudder, thinking about what had happened to so many people. Of course, the factories were found to be the culprits, and all were shut down. Without factories, production stopped. Economies failed, and people were driven into anarchy. Many people fled the cities, and made camps. However only a few camps survived. That was over 600 years ago.
As I entered the hospital, I looked around, and saw what I had been looking for, a medicine cabinet. I ran over to it, and searched through it, finding about 20 bottles of penicillin. I quickly stuffed them all into my bag, and ran away from the hospital. Being there frightened me, and I didn't want to stay longer than I needed.
Running back towards my village, I didn't look back. I never wanted to return to that empty building again. I ran through the forest, and didn't even stop to make camp. I could feel my life draining from me, as I had but six hours left. Running into my village, I collapsed, and passed out, only to wake up, about a day or two later, to find that my friends were sitting around my bed. I sat up and looked at them, knowing that I had made it just in time.
All that we needed now was to learn what we had done in the factories, to cause all of this…

smile4me: Exciting page turner. I was barely able to put it down to go to bed. I can usually figure out the twists before they are revealed but not this time! Such a thrill to be surprised. I can hardly wait for the follow up!!

aaron10905: This is undoubtedly one of the best books written on here. I actually unistalled this app until someone told me about this story. I came back not expecting much, just to be drawn into the story and the characters. I would buy this book in real life, as long as another was promised shortly after.

nikole carr: After starting and stopping several books tonight, this book caught my attention from the very beginning and i stayed up until 6 a.m. to finish reading. The plot has many twists and the sexual scenes keep it interesting, too. im a florida native so the Caribbean location is fun to read about. th...

Andria M. Redlin-Author: POSSIBLE SPOILERS AHEAD-READ WITH CAUTION: The book was an enjoyable read overall, with many surprises I wasn't expecting. There were only a few things that bothered me: 1. There were times when the characters (mainly Opal and Lee) were talking too much, which got in the way of the action.. ...

Giuliana Cassetta: My face is full of tears, I never cried like now with a book or even a movie. I loved every single chapter. I truly don't know what to say, I'm out of words and my eyes hurt from crying. Such an bittersweet story, it's so wonderful. One of my favorites for sure. Keep it up!

Rachel Mc Donald: This was an awesome book a real page turner couldn't put it down . The characters all had a good back story . I love these kind of books and would read it if you decided to write a follow up book . Excellent work

Jennifer Sibley Jannise: So, I originally read the book because my daughter asked me to. However, I read it in 2 days and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is well written and thought out. If the author writes and publishes any more books, I would definitely read them.

christylynnr5: This was beyond amazing! Its plot was so unique! It was a beautiful romance story with a mystery twist! I can't believe it ended the way it did!!!! There HAS to be a second book!! This needs to be published and made into a series!

rudyoxborough46: An action-packed, mystical adventure awaits anyone wishing to read this novel. I’m amazed at how well you’ve managed to flesh out the characters in this book, and I hope to read more of your work.I’ve read books about goblins and elves and all that mumbo-jumbo before, and most accounts of these c...

makaylakay: I love love this story! It's written incredibly and well thought-out plot! I love how it's a different twist in fantasy fiction, other then the usual vampire or werewolves. Love the romantics and drawn to the two characters so much already! This book will draw you in within the first chapter and ...

Jason Phang: It's too short! The plot was excellently thought through, with the characters flowing up and down the storylines like the peaks and valleys of the Himalayas. Thoroughly enjoyed the book and the time spent with Asta and her journeys. (:

Aloehas: When I first started this book, I could not put it down. The author gets you attached to these characters and takes you on an emotional rollercoaster throughout the story, and it's just amazing. I'm looking forward to what else she can do.

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...

Dru83: This is perhaps my favorite part of the Olafson story just because it is here that were are introduced to his "gang". The characters are so diverse and complicated that each of them could just about spawn their own story. Eric's buddies are just so captivating and the plot just rolls along. Again...

harry142018: This story was gripping and very professionally written. With lots of twists and slight of hand tricks, the author deceives the reader until finally showing their cards at the end. With several subplots all intertwining to create the main plot, this really is an interesting and engaging read.
