This is so well written. I really liked the relationship between Nikki and Matthew, and I feel so bad for her :'( The last sentence was excellent and  absolutely loved it. Great chapter xD

Omg this was soo sad! Nicki was just about to lose her brother to war, and now she at least lost her mother too! I really liked how you went into detail with the car crash scene. It made me feel like I was in the book.

@chosen_one If you read on, you do find out that they do live ;) Just not the mother. But yeah, I know what you mean. I'm not very good at capturing emotions like that, but that's why I'm trying to work on it more. Thank you :)

Wow. This is amazing. I seriously got teary eyed at the end. Does her brother and father live? And her poor mother! I couldn't even imagine what losing my mother would feel like. This is a really good story so far.

The cover is quite pretty. xD It grabbed my attention. I saw no glaring mistakes but agree with Londonandeye it does need a more interesting descriptions and details. Over all, it is okay and has potential. You keep working on it. I wish you the best, continue writing! (:

I like this so far, but I feel that you could possibly make the opening a bit more attention grabbing. I do know this is a prologue but if this is the first thing that people read, it should start with something that will grab hold off the reader's attention.
