I must say I really love your writing, sometimes it's so light and playful and sometimes it's so intense... And Nocte is the coolest!
Also, Nocte Yin sounds waaay better then Nocte Yang.

this story has been especilly moving. it gives me chills to see how much Nocte has grown and how she lost everything important to her. Throughought this story, you have been great at portraying Nocte's feelings and her personality. I look forward to reading the next installment!

Hi there. I'm sorry for not being able to review the previous chapters, but I'll say it all here: I love this story! I like how Nocte's from an evil family, but she's not sure if she'll be evil or good. It's great. Second, I really really like how the Yins killed Savvy's grandmother after she betrayed Nocte. They may be an evil family and all, but they still love Nocte. It's really great! And the Hell Dragon was great, as well. I love this series... This series is great. I hope Nocte's family wins the war :)

Even better than the first one, although I did see signs of 'The-main-character-goes-into-depressed-funk' I'm glad you start putting good reason for it. But Jeez, at the end I wished she was a bit more evil, damn that traitorous...woman...(You know who I am talking about)
| A.K.A. Writer's Block 9/3/09 . chapter 13
Well! This was just as amazing as the first (though infinitely more depressing. I hope Nocte finds a little happiness in the next... installment? Is that hte word?). And just to let you know, I like Nocte Yin just as much as Nocte Yang- maybe even a little more, actually. Well, I'm off to read the next one! I adore your stories!
| Storyteller's Shadow 4/6/09 . chapter 13
I have read this instalment, and the first instalment as well. I'm having trouble remembering when the first ended and the second started so instead of reviewing both, I will give you one really long review.
This story makes you question your morals. It makes you wonder what is good and what is bad. Isn't there a bit of light in the yin and a bit of shadow in the yang? Without light there will be no shadow. Who are we to define what is good and what is bad? What it is that makes up a person and a situation? Very well done.
I really like Nocte as a character. She is not perfectly beautiful, strong, or fake. She is also not evil, but deffinately not good as well. She is undecided as to what she wants to be, what she wants to do, and though she says she wants to be good, like I said before, what is good and evil? Are actions what make up a person? Does the emotion behind the actions matter as well? Nocte has her own charisma. Most characters I have seen not only on fictionpress but in published books as well are repeated over, and over again. You can't tell one from another. They are also very unrealistic. Nocte has her own charisma, I can tell her from all the other characters in stories and I will remember her very well. The way she wants to be something, but ends up as something else is well thought of as well. She is also someone I can relate to easily.
I enjoy the humour in the whole thing. You are explaining, but mocking those traditional "good and evil" stories. The contrast with Nocte and her family is amazing. The contrast within her family, between her sisters and brothers is very well done too.
Something else I really like is how all of those evil people are evil, but yet not. You cannot trust them, but end up to anyways. How they are good in their own way.
Some things you can fix up in your story. There were some spelling and grammer mistakes, bet they were very minor. Also you seem to rush things a little bit. The story should be let to develop, and not skip over. You said that you will start writing from first person, right? I think that will be good. When you are writing about Nocte's feelings, but not feeling them, it seems a bit odd.
The betrayels surprised me. Savvy's betrail was quite shocking. She did not seem the tipe. I understand Whitely warned her, but there were no other clues. I think you should add some in the beggining. Weird glances, strange hunger for power, stuff like that. Noir's betrayel acutally shocked me much more. He was evil, and we knew it, but he saved her from Vanessa once, and they seemed to be on 'good' terms. I think I wanted him to develop into a 'good' sort of evil character. The betrayel from her family, I fully expected. It still made me feel kind of bad when her cousin was in on it too. He and Dire were my favoure non-Nocte family members.
THis story was very well written, so well infact that I chose to read it over finishing my project on time. Good job.

Still awesome! I really liked seeing Nocte show her power. It makes me wonder if she is going to make more use of it more visibly in the future. Of course I can probably find my answer by continuing to read. So I think I will stop typing and read on. Great Story!

NYGHT! Hyperventilating! It's so exciting! Will she be EVIL will she be GOOD?
The first story of Nocte Yin was so good I was afraid that the sequel would pale in comparison, alas it did not. It surpassed my expectations and all that jazz...
Anyway I loved it! I am so reading the next one, cha.

Ah, so that's why the first letter of each chapter was bold. I was wondering if that was just a weird quirk you had when you wrote this last year. So, it's now 3 a.m. and I have finally read all three of your stories. If you're wondering why I'm reviewing this story last, instead of 'Confessions' it's because I read part 3, and then one and two. So yeah...I really really really enjoyed the story. Lots of characters in it. Awesome! Oh yes, and one more thing.. 'I-live-to-be-evil!'

this chapter made my eyes fill up with tears. its kind of unbelievable but for some reason, i felt the same way as Nocte when everyone betrayed her. i think its because of your superb writing skills that just makes you feel like you're actually in the story. congratulations, not many writers can do that! wow, im kind of sad that its over, well, there's always the 3rd installment but i've already read that. i read that first, and was kind of confused about everyhting that happened until i found out by going on your profile that there were prequels. so it makes sense now that i know what happened before the 3rd story. the bad thing about it though, is that now i have to wait for updates instead of clicking the convenient link on the right...*sigh* i guess im just going to have to read it all over again until the next chapter...not that it wouldnt be fun, of course! lol, hope to see you soon in the next update in the 3rd story SOON!
