I thought I would read another chapter for the BvB review battle.
This story is so enthralling. I am so curious as to how all of it is going to play out. You are building and building to a very exciting climax.
There are so many characters with ulterior motives, it is really hard to guess who is trying to play whom. First, there is the mystery of the will. I think Pollux was trying to get Orion to take action and destroy it himself - and deal with the witnesses, that way he can claim innocence. At least, that is my guess.
I definitely think Regulus is up to something. He asked to go flying, but wasn't mentioned again. Perhaps he went to meet someone, OR perhaps he pushed his aunt off the roof.
Why would Barty go to the papers? Especially if he wanted to solve the murder on his own. He definitely has another agenda.
The scene in the drawing room made me groan in frustration for Sirius. That must be the exact LAST thing a teenage boy wants to do on a summer afternoon - sit in a stuffy room with three older witches and watch them read and sew. How awful!
And why has Narcissa been visiting her parents so frequently? Hmm.
Great job on another intriguing chapter.
Author's Response: Hi again, Beth! Thank you so much for coming back - it's so great to see you're enjoying the story! :)
Yeah, haha, there are a lot of sneaky characters! Barty, Orion, Pollux, Regulus, Bella... but it's fun because it's so twisted and it means I can play around with them so much :P Ooh, the will... mmm... maybe, maybe ;) The will is going to be important, though, so remember it ;)
Regulus is up to something - I can confirm that, haha. You're definitely onto something with your suspicions, though I can't say which one is more likely... both are good, though! :)
Ooh, Barty... Barty has an agenda, yes. Sorry - I honestly can't say more without giving things away! :P
Haha, I know! It's the last thing I'd want to do, as well, tbh! Plus, Sirius is pretty restless anyway...
Oh, you only find that out right at the end, haha, sorry about that! But there is a reason! :)
Thank you so much for the wonderful review - and for stopping by again! :)
