@Jilleigh That's okay. I got sick of StoryWrite and got off, but I really love it! I can't wait for the sequel!
I read this on StoryWrite! I still love it and I can't wait to read the last few chapters! :)
@Jilleigh haha i liked the premise, probably that's why. i liked the light glistening in the text and stuff (if you know what i'm talking about....)
Really cool Prologue! I have no idea what's going on, which is good, as that makes me want to read on to find out more :)
I like this as a hook--good job adding mystery without really confusing the reader. The analytical tone in the beginning worked quite well. On to chapter 1!
Ooh, this is chilling! Well-written and hooking prologue - I'm definitely heading to the next chapter right now! :)
