Review:Your Secret Santa says:
Hi there. Sorry I'm late with your gift, but I have been sick for some time now.

I love how you start the story. It's exciting and makes me wanna read the rest. You get straight to the point, yet to leave the reader curious.

My favorite part is your description. I sometimes struggle with description, but it seems to come naturally to you. The description of her feelings and thoughts are so good that I can feel everything I believe she feels. It seriously gave me chills.That doesn't happen very often to me, but it did when I read this. I can see the story happening in my head, and it's just one of the best stories I've read so far.

I also love the mood in the story. I don't read stories that have that kind of mood very often, but I might do that from now on. Everything is very dark and heavy. For me it's important that a writer don't over-do the mood, and fortunately you didn't. I also think you write very realistically, which makes me believe in it. This is also because your plot is very believable, and you stick to it all the way.

I also found your character very interesting. It's Eleanor, right? I love how you describe her, and makes it seem like she doesn't really want it. She is almost forced into it. She seems like someone who knows what's wrong, yet feels like she has to do it anyway. I think she has the potential to become a really good character, once you get to know her a little better.

What I'm really curious about, though, is what Sirius did. I hope I'll find out quickly. Anyway, it was really intriguing. I'll soon be back with more gifts.

Merry christmas!

Author's Response: I can't thank you enough for al these reviews you gave me! They are absolutely lovely!

Description is something that i've definitely worked at for a while and i'm glad it's seeming to pay off. I always view my stories as if they were a scene from a movie and I try to explore what i see and explain it to someone who has never seen it. (which obviously no one really has in a way)

I'm really happy that you like the mood. That sounds morbid because the mood is so dark but as an author it's always great to hear that someone can really feel the mood in the writing. I'm glad that it came across to you because i always see that as one of the most important aspects of writing is to draw the reader into the story in someway.

Yes, it's Eleanor and you are exactly correct. She really doesn't want to be there and the story explores what brought her to this point and made her make the decisions she has.

Thank you so much for your lovely review!!
