*****Book 1: Waking Up*****

Chapter 1 Madness

(Angel Pov.)

Angel's eyes slowly blinked open and she coughed sending ash and dust flying up under her nose. Cautiously she lifted her head, feeling a crook in her neck and soreness in her back. Her body felt odd and stiff. As if she'd been lying there a long time.

But where is there? Angel looked around but confusion clouded her thoughts. Her eyes saw absolutely nothing. Nothing but a wasteland devoid of trees or any form of life. Ash flitted on the breeze and smoke slowly filtered up from the ground. A burning smell made bile rise in Angel's throat and she coughed again reaching behind herself so that she could sit up.

Her hand brushed something soft.

Angel whirled and fell over backwards in shock. A girl, a strikingly familiar girl, lay covered in ash in front of her. The girl lay on her side and had wings of a light brown and speckled white which were stained gray from soot. Several of the feathers were slightly burnt; the tips of them singed. One wing was squashed beneath her body, bent at an odd angle, while the other lay like a blanket over her body along the length of her stomach.

Angel noticed something pooled in the shadows beneath the girl's body, mixing pastely with the sand. Angel's body stiffened and her throat felt dry. The scarlet paste was blood.

"Max!" Angel crawled over and gently shook the girl's shoulders. She did not move. Angel sobbed and shook her leader harder. Max's body tilted and her wing slid back to reveal a small, clear dagger sticking out of her chest in line with the pool of blood.

Angel gasped and her hands flitted uselessly over the still moist blood which covered the front of Max's shirt where the dagger had been plunged. That's when Angel noticed that her hands were stained red.

She paused, bringing her hands close to her face, before glancing back down at Max whose light devoid brown eyes were staring straight at her. Dead and accusing.

Angel fled.

So, guys I'm back! And to those of you who don't know me my name is Avenging Angels and this is my fifth (officially) fanfiction. If you like where this fic is going please feel free to continue reading. Also, if my writing style is to your liking, check out my One-shots: Walmart Madness, The First Thanksgiving (if you're in the mood) and 19 Years: Partial Song Fic I Hope You Dance.

Or, if you like the long ones, check out my story: Avenging Angels (My Name sake). It's 80 chapters long, has nearly 800 reviews, and takes place before Fang: A Maximum Ride Novel. Unlike this one: The End Is Here, which takes place directly after Angel.

Thanks for reading this far guys. Reviews are not only encouraged but glorified by shout outs based on my formal policy from Avenging Angels the fic.

Oh, and a last note for readers I promise this is it. As far as chapter length and updating are concerned. I will, without doubt update weekly. And, if pace continues since I'm currently typing up chapter 15, I should be on track soon to updating daily if minimally every two days. Chapter length increases as this story progresses I promise. As for now the crucial details are being set and unfortunately I love keeping you guys in suspense way too much for my own good. But, since I update quickly and periodically, this shouldn't be to much of a bummer.

Sincerely,

Avenging Angels
