About this ebook

In the late 16th century, the queen of England sponsored a voyage to the new world in order to re-establish a colony on the island of Roanoke, near Chesapeake Bay. The famed attempt is known to this day as the Lost Colony. Speculation upon speculation has been proposed as to what may have happened to the colonists but nothing has ever been proven. The recent discovery of a long lost journal written by a teenage boy who accompanied his parents to the island may shed new light upon the matter, as the boy gives an eye witness account of what really happened. But be warned, the following account is unlike any of the ideas presented by speculators throughout history. Could it be that something altogether otherworldly actually took place? You decide, knowing that what is seen is not always what is.

    About the Author

    Chapter 1: The Voyage at Sea

    The following is an historical account of the mysteries surrounding the 1587 attempt to establish an English settlement at Roanoke Island. The origin of this journal remains unknown to this day. Therefore, its accuracy has not been validated and is to be read at one’s own risk.

    Day 1

    We finally leave port after over a month’s delay. All one-hundred and seventeen of us crowded onto the Lyon with the flyboat and pinnace by our sides. All of our hearts burdened with fears, anxieties, and excitements; we were, after all, sailing to a new world.

    Day 8

    After being tortured by seasickness the last seven days of the journey, I finally feel some relief. It seems the sea-farer’s life is not for me. As fortune has it, I’m not the lone sufferer on board, as many have been far worse off than even I. I feel all the more wretched for the pregnant lady, our leader’s very own daughter. I wonder what kinds of persuasions he must have mustered in bringing along his own kin and her groom. I reckon they be of the same persuasions my own family fell for; a chance at adventure and an escape from the monotony of English living. At least that is what father said.

    Day 13

    I’ve taken a liking to a most lovely lass; one of the few nearest my age aboard the ship. Her name is Alis. We’ve only said a few words to each other, but there was something between us that I felt, a connection of sorts. Mother says girls should never be trusted at sea, retelling them old legends of Sirens and their alluring conducts. I suppose Mother can say such things, for she never had a daughter of her own. She always has a keen way of steering me away from every girl I’ve ever fancied, telling me not to spend the time on a girl until you’re much older, lad, as she puts it. But I cannot say she will be able to steer me away from this one. There’s just something about her bright blue eyes, full of an enthusiasm I’ve never seen the likes of in anyone before.

    Day 17

    I suppose it best to say a few words of our leader Mr. White, but there isn’t much to
