Avalyn Whitethorn is no stranger to hardship. Living in the Pit for as long as she can remember, a place of near eternal darkness and cold, Avalyn acts as a street fighter, often fighting men twice her size, in order to earn enough money to pay off her blood oath to the Assassin's Guild. Avalyn takes part in the Elite Fights, and is extremely successful, but not doing so without making dangerous enemies. A wanted woman in the Pit for a crime she did not commit, Avalyn must flee across the mountains with a man she only met earlier that day, to a land she only knew about from legends. But an ancient, wicked shadow is growing across these lands, and Avalyn must find a way to stop it... or doom all the people she's grown to care about.

I love the fact that the Fights is capitalized. It always makes a story more interesting when things are so universal in a world you don't even need a proper name, just a big old 'The'

I enjoy this line. It gives me a feeling of what type of author you are at the beginning of the story. I can't wait to read on.

I like the use of the fictional document excerpt as prologue.
