Review:Alopex says:
Hm. I thought this was a little on the short side; the ending seemed abrupt to me. I know you were focusing on Rowena's story, not Helena's, but I did experience a little jolt there. Also, I'd always had the impression that Rowena had had the diadem for many years before her death and that it was common knowledge that she had it.

However, I do like the way you explained Rowena's motivation for creating an object that would preserve her legacy. Her thoughts about her daughter being a disappointment to her definitely help to explain the wedge that obviously came between them. I enjoyed your characterization of Rowena: arrogant, brilliant, but also capable of love and affection.

Author's Response: I totally agree with you about the ending, I wasn't entirely happy with the way I ended it, it felt unresolved. I'm not sure how much we really know about the history of the diadem before Helena stole it, and I did not gather an impression either way on how long it had been around, so this was my take on it.

I'm glad you liked my take on how she came to create the diadem and the way I portrayed her relationship with Helena. I'm also glad you liked my characterisation of Rowena.

Thank-you for reviewing.
