Action / Thriller

Blurb

Rogue Land…Rogue Land…Nothing lives in Rogue Land. Angela wrote this poem, her view of the violent and savage world in which she lived. A city being ravaged by gangsters and brutal police officers, who have been locked in a war that have claimed many. Her own father; Rourke Carter leads a special crimes unit, and has been on the edge for years, a man whose mental state is deteriorating as he hunts men like ‘the magician’ who is at war with the ‘Tribesmen’. But as ethical and legal boundaries are crossed, a new war begins, with an enemy so powerful and elusive that his presence threatens everything Rourke has ever had, pushing him and his family into the ultimate duel where everything is on the line………

Prologue

I watched him at work, a demon filled with rage, controlled but merciless. He stopped at nothing as he left a trail of fire and blood. At the climax of his rampage where he had single handily eliminated two of the most notorious crews in the State, he dragged men up flights of stairs as I watched from down below, strapped in the car seat. He had this Herculean type of strength and a fury that could not be matched, as he threw man after man from a shattered window many storeys up, I watched him stare down at their death. He never got tired and his will for vengeance never dimmed in all the hours that passed, there was no mercy in him and I did not know him then, I did not even know his name.

We raced through the desert towards the border and I no longer cried and had not even once pleaded for mercy as he had none to give. I could not even look at him and he kept me strapped in the passenger seat as his eyes focused on the road ahead. The dust covered everything coming from the furious tyres of his machine, he had this supernatural quality, like a freak of nature, something terrible that had been awakened from a long sleep. I kept my eyes closed and dreaded sundown, what the night would bring and what would happen to me after we crossed the border. I knew I had lost everything, I was never going home again.

kim: This is great! Maybe it could just be a little more specific. One of the keys to great writing is describing things in detail. I think you're off to a great start. I wish you much luck.

Tiffany Thomson: This story is not something I would normally pick up and read but I'm so glad I did, I wasn't able to put it down and my husband was yelling at me at 3am to put it down and go to bed (just waited for him to doze back off before picking it back up) I really hope Natalie brings out another book eit...

Jean Tryon: As a beta, I found this story outstanding!! Plot, grammar, phraseology, etc Rachel gives us it all. She takes the story into the future from where due South ends. She is an exacting and thoughtful author.

M.L. Rivers: This story was very good, one of the best scifi novels out there. The plot, setting, characters, everything was very original and it was just a good read. I hope this story wins the competition :)

DarkSide Consulting: This was the first book I have read on the Inkitt app so far. It had me hooked from the start. I loved the first person dialogs and how the Creepypasta Characters fit perfectly in their scenes and how they acted and reacted. Don't worry about the grammar in a story like this because I wouldn't...

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.

Leah Brown: This was an amazing read! I was hooked from the very first chapter, holding my breadth to see what would happen next. The characters are rich and vibrant, and the world Danielle has created is fascinating. If you love YA, you MUST read this book. Such a smart, brilliant debut novel. I loved it!

Girl on Fire: Great story, line Alex!!!It really has a edge on it. It put me on edge with its thrill. Can't wait to read the rest.!!!

FateFellShort: I have read this story and have followed the writers on tumblr from the beginning. Its a wonderful story. Beautifully written with a really nice pace, that makes it enjoyable to read more than once. For me, fairy tail has very good characters but what the writers have done is give them more depth...

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
