I like to exaggerate, play on what we look at day to day but don't see. I like to show how it really is, to an extreme level. There's usually a truth behind everything I write, a personal message from my own life. Read into it and see for yourself.

    It was interesting, it read more like a poem than a story with all the short sentences and overuse of commas. If that was the objective then well done. Like the previous commenter said I would have enjoyed more description though. But I did enjoy it. A few spelling and grammatical errors but a simple re-read would sort that out. Liked.

    Thank you so much for it, you are a brilliant writer, so it means a lot from you. I will add more description, and in future chapters, hopefully have less spelling and grammatical errors.

    This is quite a neat idea. I like it. Whoever the lucky person is next, do enjoy.

    Hello again old friends, I'm back, maybe not for long, time will tell. But I've stared a new movella, Infinitus Mortalis. As you've come to expect from me it's dark, I can't say more than that because I can't really think of how to describe it that won't end up being a spoiler.

    Tell me what you think. It may well be my final story on this site.

    Oh and a link, because I forgot I could do that.

    I'm giving this site two weeks, I'll stay if I see evidence of people interested in actual literature and not just fanfics. I have started a new story for while I'm here. I hope I find a reason to stay.

    @[blaclets] I can see your point. But again, it is a true fact, harsh or not.

    @braclets those stories were submitted two years ago, when it was a great website full of active writers. But as you see there is a clear cut off point where they just stopped. I blame the excess of fan fic competitions bringing the wrong people to this site for that.

    Yeah. Those fan fix comps aren't going away.

    My Review

    I've had a bit of a speed read through this book over the week, and what I was really wanting from it was it to be something unique, a vampire story that didn't just jump on the Twilight band wagon and actually thought for itself.

    Opening chapter started strongly, hungover the main character Tana wakes in a bathtub and goes over the previous nights events. I thought this was a good way to start it all off. But from there the story didn't really get going, it was sort of stuck in second gear. You'd get a little further into what plot they had to give you then you'd hit another brick wall of flashbacks and world building and trailing meaningless description.

    By the time you got back to the story again you realise it's chapter 6 and you're still in the house! The pacing is slow and it has no real reason to be. Then of course there is the obvious romance between Tana and a vampire Gavriel which was obvious and unwanted. The characters were thought out and the writing was well implemented but I felt the story lacked a story and stalled often.
