Okay, I knew I would like this. I had it bookmarked to read on my eight-hour flight and KNEW I shouldn't read it beforehand, but I did. I decided to make sure I would like it and found out I love it and it will be like torture not to continue until my flight.

From the moment I entered this story you had me - my favorite show was playing in the background and I didn't even realize. My least favorite song came on in my ears and I couldn't be bothered to skip to a different one.

This was splendid. I knew I would like this story but I wasn't sure how you would pull off the introduction to something like this (as you might know from my story, I don't like long-winded introductions) and you did it marvelously. The interview on death-row was simply brilliant. The flashbacks.

The language throughout lent perfectly to each mood and situation you put the reader in. The way you opened with Hugo, the way you said "the man to the left" and then referred to him as "the Head" was probably my favorite mood-setter (I'm sure there is a proper word for that in literature, it is bypassing me right now).

His deal. His manner of speaking. How you describe him and have him describe her - I can't say enough - it simply worked flawlessly.

Her deal - left me breathless and wanting more.

You have me hooked and dang you for dragging me here before my flight and leaving me to wait to read more! ;-) See you soon!

Author's Response: Hey! I'm a horrible person for putting off reviewing for so long, and this review is so awesome that I feel doubly horrible about it.


I'm so glad you liked it! Indeed, the Head is an atrocious character (and therefore, an absolute joy to write). And if you think he's bad, boy oh boy, wait till you meet Albus haha.

The literary device for repetition at the beginning of a sentence is anaphora I believe. I remember that from English class last year.

Also, glad it wasn't long-winded and kept your interest. I try not to write anything I wouldn't want to read myself.

Hope your flight was good! Come by again soon!(and I also plan on stopping by to see Devlin one of these days haha).

Happy days!
