Review:Courtney Dark says:
This was an incredible first chapter. It was so mysterious, dark, eerie and haunting, and really made me want to read on. Already I have so many questions. What happened to Cygnus? Was he really murdered by one of the family, like Barty thinks? I guess I'll just have to read on to find out!

I love your style of writing in this chapter! The way you don't focus on one specific character but use third person in the present's so different, so unusual and just adds to the mystery of the whole thing!

Your use of imagery is also great, and really drew me in. Even the first sentence; 'Thick, midnight blue drapes hang either side of the huge, arched windows which line the whole of the wall, metal candelabras standing between each one' showed me that this was going to be an excellent first chapter, with a very dark mood.

I am interested to see where you are going to take this, and am looking forward to seeing further characterization of each character. Great job!

Author's Response: Hey there! Thanks for stopping by! :)

Gah, thanks so much! I think eventually I'll answer all of your questions (one might not be... but I can't say which one ;D), but yeah, you'll have to read on... can't afford to give everything away, lol!

Thanks so much! I do intend to focus on a couple of protagonists as the story goes on, but since the story is really about the family as a whole, including them all is necessary (if annoying and difficult). I'm glad you liked it, though!

Hehe... imagery just creeps in into everything I write... can't live without it... thank youuu! Gothic style just suits the Blacks, I think, which was mainly why I chose it, but I'm glad you think it works with the setting and mood as well!

Thank you so much! I hope you keep reading - there is lots more to happen and find out about each one of them!
