TITLE (EDIT)
Journey To The Planet Merridion
DESCRIPTION
This is my third tale in what I'm calling "The Adrian and Lucalan Saga," unless someone can come up with something better. It follows the short stories "The Rivals" and its sequel, "The Arrivals."

You can pretty much guess the plot of the story through the title, but I would strongly suggest reading the first two stories so you can at least have some understanding of what's happened in the universe.

The second story in the series, "The Arrivals," I believe is the best short story that I have ever written, just based on the themes I have running throughout the piece. This story here I believe is good also, or at the least decent. Let me know what I have to improve on and please, if you're going to read the story and leave a rating, review also. Thanks to anyone who takes the time to give my work a read.

"I liked this short story.Clev,and these "Alkighted",seem to be Badass.And the Visuals of the flourishing metropolis,of Merridon and Castlla,is Fantastic,and very Vivid,in it's desription.Seems like the Human race is about,to have a bad day,when these Alkighted arrive. Pretty good stuff.I enjoyed it.Oh,and feel free,to check out my latest title:The Dreamer. " -- willie, Baton Rouge, LA.
"Thanks a lot.I'm glad you enjoyed reading it.And that book, i mentioned,it just helps to guide,you to writing screenplays, (long or short) more proficently.So,over all,if you ever submit, a script to an hollywood exec,they can't say,its god awful.It doesn't give them,the impression of amatuerism.The techniques it provides,helps you to craft,any type of script, in the proper format,and such.And as for the Vengeance of Exodus...i kind of hopped off of it,for a while.But,i will finish it,one of these days,when i'm not so busy.Well,until next time,my fellow scribe.As spock says: Longevity and prosperity be with you...and stuff like that.Keep up the good work. " -- willie Travis Jr, Baton Rouge, LA.
"Okay, it was a good story and I really enjoyed reading it. I thought that it was well-written and very organized. I thought the detailing about the city and the people were very descriptive. Initially reading it i thought to myself that Lucas' arrival into the story would have been a lot better than what it was if you spruced it up a bit; it was just too plain. But then I would have come to realize that the main focus of the story was not about his entrance, but what they anticipated to happen. So I guess Lucas' entrance wasn't all that important then. Additionally, the Alkelight alien, I felt he should have been more profound other than his appearance when they got ready to leave earth. Like he should have been more mysterious; like how you mentioned that he was following Lucas all that time, maybe he should have initially encountered Adrian or maybe secretly followed Adrian around so that the readers could get a more vivid understanding of him because he was a pivtol aspect to the story he should have been included more. I hope that makes sense. Okay, so overall, I thought it was very good; highly creative and let the readers wanting to read more because of the mystery. It was like "Ahhhh...Stop it already and tell me now; the suspense is killing me." LOL But good job! I believe out of the series, the best one for me was The Arrivals." -- Shanee Faith, Detroit, MI.
