Oh my God, this is gorgeous. What are you doing here? You should be plastering best sellers on the walls of Barnes & Noble.

There's not the first error or smudge in this piece. It's Mona Lisa. I love the vernacular. I'm locked in from the start, and this is by the book character development right down to the physical flaw of your protagonist. We have two main characters thus far, and both are exceptionally interesting. The situation is compelling. The pace and the length of the chapter are excellent. It would take me ten times round to spit and polish a chapter this shiny.

This is superb. And I love the story so far...

Mateo is evidently a troll. Glad she got away from him. It's a happy beginning. :)
