Chapter 1 ~ Roselyn

80 years ago the people in my community used sacrifices. It was said that if 10 people were killed each year it would bring prosperity among our land. So every year the elders would knock door to door looking for “volunteers”. I don’t know how people had the courage to volunteer for that, to die for others. I know I would never be able to. However in the end it turned out it was done by force. The 10 chosen were taken to a barren field, there they were killed. They threw rocks at them till they were dead. It was said that these people that were chosen had done something wrong that has upset the gods and that’s why they were chosen, I don’t believe that though.

It’s been 80 years since the last sacrifice. At least that’s what they say, they still do them only that now it just has a different name and they say it’s more fair. However they still kill innocent lives. They are murderers, we all are. We rely on people to die to be able to prosper, and we kill those people, our own kind, our friends, neighbors, siblings. It doesn’t matter who you are if you’re ages 10-19 there’s the possibility of getting drafted. And to be honest? It’s not even about prosperity anymore, it’s about keeping tradition alive. Tradition is important here, one little mistake can kill you. There is a tradition for almost everything, even in school. In our school all girls must take dance class, however we must follow all traditional dances, we are not allowed to make our own. Once a girl secretly made her own dances. When she was discovered, she was forced to apologize and was to be suspended for 30 days. However, after she apologized she claimed she was not sorry for what she had done and called the head misstress and a “Nazi”. After she walked out without being dismissed. Another mistake, we are taught manners and walking out on a superior ia major offense to them. Days later she was executed.

Melinda Lee: It is a good story, but hard to read. There are no quotation marks when people speak. Several characters speak in some paragraphs and it all runs together.

Hacked: Reading Author's book can make you realize she's not writing about same old stupid things but she's writing everything different in every story. she's writing things which are completely different to one another, and it's so relatable (of course not the Mafia part but the new found love and blus...

Samantha: This book is amazing though I would have been happier if it wasn't so short and get more drama from Luke n his twin. Also see how their blend over as years go by with more fiction. It a very NYC mafia short story that lives u with a lot of unanswered questions.

Rataplan: Spelling and grammar are a bit dodgy at times, there's a few distracting continuity mistakes, and not all plot points are resolved: I say you need an editor.
