“The Fifth Hero” – Chapter 3

Traveling to another world wasn’t anything like Kevin imagined it to be. No flash of light. No soaring across the stars. No weird distortion of reality.

“The Fifth Hero” – Chapter 2

“WHAT DO YOU MEAN ‘NOPE!’” Kevin’s heart leapt. He spun, searching for the source of the shout. None of his neighbors were out on the patio, nor was there any sign of a cat, dog, or bird.
