Amelia Nichole Defield (amelianichole) | 7 comments Hi all!

I would really appreciate it if you would be willing to give my short story a read and vote in the Inkitt Epic Worlds contest --> http://www.inkitt.com/stories/13703

Born without a name, an engineered hybrid gains a conscience on route to destroy Earth. Will she conform to The Council's wishes or betray her kind and choose humanity? Why can't she feel love?

The contest ends on June 3rd! :D

Amelia Nichole Defield (amelianichole) | 7 comments A review from a fellow author,
That final chapter

Had to be my favorite of the entire piece. The way you were able to convey the emotions was fantastic as it kept in character, making it feel like a discovery for both the protagonist and the reader. I am usually not a fan of first-person writing simply because many authors end up over-explaining the story through the mouthpiece of the protagonist. You did a great job at avoiding this and I never felt like I was getting bogged down in the details of the piece, yet I was still given enough information to understand what was going on around me with just enough to leave me wanting to read and understand more. It's a great balance and one I think a lot of people struggle with. ~ Dryger

Talk soon,
Amelia DeField

Gets a lot across in such a short story

This was a fun read. The fact that nearly every chapter is told by a different character really adds to it, as well as the plot twists. Through the different points of view, we also get a more comprehensive glimpse of the setting than a lot of stories of this length give us.

Just three days left until the end of the contest! I would really appreciate it if you would be willing to give my short story a read and vote in the Inkitt Epic Worlds contest --> http://www.inkitt.com/stories/13703
