Privileged teenager Jax Shepherd inhabits two worlds. The one called reality is filled with abandonment, indisposition and isolation; her Father left her at a young age, her Mother doesn't care, and her best friend cares more about her next boy toy than anything else. Reduced to a near emotionless state, Jax imagines another world, a post apocalyptic one filled with figures who seem to resemble the ancient Greek Gods. They may seek to help or hurt her as the line between reality and oblivion is blurred in Jax's life, until a new acquaintance appears. A surreal story about abandonment, forgiveness, and finding the capacity within oneself to love

Good details(: It's quite suspenseful with all the details you put in here. The hook didn't grab me directly, but this was still good!

its really good! 
                              i found some errors but they can be easily fixed. 
                              the beginning drew me in which is a hard thing to do so way to go!

@Phantasmagoria thanks for the comment and for the read. I'm mostly writing for myself, being published one day would be a distant dream, though I've never thought my writing good enough, and I've got no idea how to go about it.

Your beginning allured me in. This is very interesting! not a big sciene fiction fan but this is pretty good

@CKsback thanks for the feedback, it was very helpful and i'll take it into consideration when i write my next chapters and go back to edit these. I agree in this opening Jax is a bit blank, but i think you'll see some more cynicism and the like in the next chapters.

It's interesting and your writing is nice.
                              your descriptions are detailed but not too much (that would cause such a headache).
                              anyway, this story is good and I hope you'll continue it
