Hello and welcome to Darkling Academy! Which is my entry for The Open Novella Contest 2020! This is my first time ever entering anything like this, so I'm really excited, but nervous at the same time! Anyone else's first time?
Yesterday, you found a new app on your phone, it doesn't open, you can't delete it and you don't know what it is. Tonight, you were awoken by an alert on your phone - it's the app notifying you of some very specific instructions.
~ Blurb ~
Darkling Academy only has two rules. Number one? Don't die on the first day. Number two? Try not to die over the next three hundred and sixty five days.
Alexis Huntington, a seventeen year old girl, already had enough to deal with as a high school student trying to get into her dream college. But after she finds a Mysterious app on her phone, she's thrown into a world full of Werewolf's, Witch's and Vampires.
You know, just all the things that could kill you without even trying.
And to top it all off, people from her home town, Danforth, have been going missing without any trace or clue of where they could be.
Will Alexis be able to save them before one of her loved ones are next, whilst also trying to survive her new school?
~ Genre ~
I'd say the genre is Fantasy if anything. But the main one thing I'd categorise it under would be Supernatural. The sub-genres are Teen Fiction, Werewolf, Vampire, Action and a touch of Mystery.
~ Note ~
The prologue contains mild mature themes related to gore - nothing to graphic.
In the prologue, the POV belongs to our antagonist.
I am always open to constructive Criticism and feedback! So, if you see any grammatical mistakes or a scene that doesn't make sense and what not, just let me know:)
This book is purely fictional, apart from a few myths and legends I researched online. Other then that, all characters, places and names are stuff I came up with.
