Perelandra from the forums here!

So I did what everyone was doing...and snuck over to read this instead. Hope it doesn't bug you! And now that I remember...didn't you ask something about how the book publishing works and I gave an entire rant about how we would get advance readers and what not? Haha, if not, ignore me.

Anyway! Like I tell the other authors, I usually read and review as I go along however only a few catch my attention, suck me right in that I just can't stop to write a bit of a review. As expected, I didn't find any grammar or punctuation issues. I absolutely enjoyed the flow (which was what sucked me right in) and the mood and setting were fantastic. I guess what I enjoyed the most was the the fact that you didn't start right at the beginning but instead allowed us to see how messed up Krum is before telling us what happened. At least, that's what I will happen.

I'm a very detailed oriented person so I managed to imagine everything in my head without any issues. I hate it whenever some authors just don't add mood nor setting leaving me to imagine them in a dark room just talking in monotone voices. The flow that you had with your narrative built up the scene for me without being too wordy, something I'm very guilty of, and I really liked that about this prologue.

There is really not that much to say about this since this is just the beginning. I have a lot of questions but that's good! This first chapter piqued my curiosity and now I want to read more about it.

Until next time


Author's Response: Of course I don't mind! I actually think the opening to the other story is much better written then this chapter, but I'm not one to turn down a review. And you're right. I did post some publishing questions on the forums. There is actually a shout-out to you at the start of the next chapter for being so helpful.

I'm so pleased to hear that you liked the chapter. This one was pretty scaled back in terms of setting, at least for me, but I'm really glad there was still enough to help build up a mental image for you. I'll admit, getting the mood here was tricky, and there are parts that I still don't like, but I guess that's what happens when you write something outside your norm. I've never really attempted "gritty" before.

Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a review. And thanks again for the info you posted on the forums. It really helped me a lot when I was getting this story started.
