    Very nice story… love the pirate vibe !!

      This was a commission that JDseal and I worked on a long time ago. The commissioner had to leave suddenly, so it was never finished. However, the story Cursed Recollections picks up many of the pieces of Curse of the Shadow. It is a sequel of sorts.

    Intriguing take on the deserted island genre. Well paced with the classic Rawly elements.

  3. AuntLover

    Found this after reading Cursed Recollections, fantastic writing once again!

    1. Rawls

      Yes, people wanted a continuation of that story, and this seemed like a way to do that.

    I am most definitely a fan of this one.

    Can’t wait for this story to be picked up again.

    1. Rawls

      This was a commission from a long time ago (when I used to do commissions). The commissioner had to leave suddenly. I have no plans to continue this story without him.

    Hi, I think maybe you could pick up this story, Lance should go back with his mother and family to the city and continue to enjoy his mother while he begins to take his sister and the sexy neighbor with his daughter. Just to give an idea.

    1. Rawls

      Continuing this story will be an option when one of my main novel slots open up.

    I know there are illustrations in this story, but I can’t see them in either version. Is that one elsewehere?

    1. Rawls

      I didn’t upload some of the old stuff JDseal and I made, but maybe I should. I’ll add them today, look for those chapters in the illustrated section.

      1. Rawls

        Okay, Curse of the Shadow illustrated is live.

  8. Razzia

    I hope there will be a follow up soon because it is a great story, as always.

    1. Rawls

      The option will be available in a vote at some point.

  9. Anteater

    I cannot see their family going back to normal. Once Emily allowed her son inside, that was it.

    1. Rawls

      Well, yes. Things certainly won’t go back to normal.

    This is a terrific story. It’s up there with “Dark Stone”. I’d love it if there were more chapters of this.

    1. Rawls

      The commissioner will give me an outline for six final chapters, so we’ll hold a vote to see if we continue this story when it’s time to start something new.

    I think the links are broken. They go to Enki’s Puzzle and Coyote’s Trick.

    1. Rawls

      I screwed up the links when I was updating them yesterday. Thanks for letting me know. It’s fixed now.

    I really wish this story had continues.

    1. Rawls

      Sorry! The commissioner disappeared and don’t want to continue it without him.

      1. TauXv9

        That sucks I love this story and would love to see where it goes

        1. Diesel

          Yea Bring it back! Where is the Commissioner at!

          1. Rawls

            For those that don’t know, Diesel is the commissioner. And he’s back …

          2. Rawls

            I’ll explain when it’s time for a new story, but he’s giving me an outline for the final six chapters (text only). When readers vote on a new story, the option to finish Curse of the Shadow will be part of the poll.
