Before They Came (Magical Apocalypse)

by nathanv70

Original ONGOING Action Adventure Comedy Fantasy Grimdark Magic Male Lead Post Apocalyptic Supernatural
Warning This fiction contains:
  • Gore
  • Profanity
  • Traumatising content

Our way of life it ended faster than we ever thought possible. It didn't happen with a nuclear war, an asteroid, or a damn ice age. It ended because of another war, far away from us. The Ripples from that war changed the fabric of everything. If only we had known that it was just the beginning.

 

Btw, the beginning chapters are short, but get longer as the story goes on. Thank you for your time and your patience.

 

CLARIFIER:

The MC struggles with himself.

He has human flaws including IGNORANCE.

The MC starts the story out drunk, which has a major impact on the story in the beginning and way beyond.

The story takes time to unfold, please be patient. 

This story does not shy away from the darker elements of life.

 I rarely do reviews but you, my friend, know how to write. Your characters have common sense and actually have a personality. The MC is not some crazed overpowered dude who always succeed no matter what the challenge is. He works hard to achieve his goals even if the outcomes aren't what he expects. Overall I like the story because there is a sense of logic to the characters.
