Hey, I'm here from tag.

Your language is lovely. You've really got that tactile imagery down; the running at the beginning actually felt physically painful to read, which is fantastic.
And all the violence is described in perfect detail, leaving us no illusions as to what kind of person Lila Brown is. (I can tell you've been having fun with all this bullying and dominance. It's fun to read, too.)

Poor Lavender. First she's scarred for life when she's a teenager, then she has to become a sex worker with all the stigma attached to it, and then she has a beast from the fires of Hell as a daughter. Will we meet her as the story progresses?

And the ever so mysterious History of Magic teacher. He seems to understand Lila, and he seems to be a bit of a character himself. I'm intrigued.

Well done on this so far, and I may pop in again at some point to see how this novel gets on, so stay tuned.

Author's Response: Hello! Thank you for the review. :)

That's such a great compliment, thank you. I was aiming for a more sensual, abstract kind of narrative. The violence sort of adds to that because it's quite unexpected and strange really - but yes you're right, it leaves no illusions as to Lila's character.

Lavender will certainly make an appearance. As Lila's mum, she has a large part to play in the plot - and indeed Lila's characterisation.

Ack thank you! I'd love that :)
