|Reviews for Eidolon|

Is this a incest story or one about step-siblings? it's a bit hard to determine as there are not much info excluding the shady hints.
Yet your writing style and the way the story paces itself is, as always, astounding...

This chapter is my first query into the writing of this author. My interest was peaked when I noted the word "Eidolon" in the title because it is a word in the title of a book I am writing currently - An Eidolon of Her Father.
This chapter got me - kept me reading - and to know me is to know it takes a lot to do that when i am in a hurry. Well done. Now I am currious to know what the whole story is about.
Thanks for the post.

This story seems darker, but it is a bit too much of a cliff-hanger to stop just there. Anyway thumbs up for a great start!

Plagiarists make me want to shake my fist up to the sky in anger.
This is at least the third time I've come across a wonderful story, to find out that it had been plagiarized and discontinued/reviewed.
I will take you up on that suggestion to apply to join the Livejournal community. Not only will I be able to read some fantastic stories, but I will also be able to interact with some very talented authors.
Expect a community request, as well as an EmailMe Form.

I apologize for the abrupt end to my earlier review. Accidentally pressed the wrong key. Right. So, been though you removed everything but the first chapter, and despite knowing that I would not be able to read anything else but that, I went ahead and read it. (even though I normally don't read fics that will leave me hanging and in pain because I really really want to find out what happens!) curiosity killed the cat and I found myself hooked, and wished that I could read it because you have done a fantastic job on the first chapter and I am fangirling over it now!
I find the characters intriguing, like the way Cass seems to be overdependent on her brother Charles (my incest senses are tingling slightly) and there seems to be a darker side to charles, which is really interesting. I like how your characters are 3,4 dimensional and you're not a conventional author in the sense that while you do use a few cliches, like the girl falling in love with her brother's best friend, and falling in love with your stepbrother story lines, you have deviated from the usual plot and I think that's honestly fantastic. After a bit of searching, the stories that FP produces are around the same, and either include much hot sex and then falling in love or typical teen romances and I feel that you have a new take and stand. well, even though I've only read a chapter of each of your stories, I have come to respect you as a good author, and for a budding author who has just started writing on FF (my name's science and fiction, should you wish to buzz me or anything), it's very inspirational to find an author like you.
I think that this story would have been a dark one, and though I'm not really seeing the link between the Summary and the Story yet (then again, it is only the first chapter) but I'm looking forward to reading the reviews in a desperate attempt to at least get the general plotline (I saw on PH that if you haven't been with the site long, you probably won't be accepted :( )
Thank you for reading my longish review. Back to homework now ;) though this was one of the best breaks ever. :)

Hello! I'm new to FP and after a few hit-and-misses, and scouring through the archives (didn't realize communities were so helpful until a short while ago), I finally found an amazing author! Then I realized that you had removed your stories, along with angels and effects, and lots of other cool people. I know that I probably shouldnt be writing this in a review instead of a PM or something but I don't have an FP account so this will have to suffice for now.

I was entranced reading this chapter and lone behold I go to read the next one and I find out the rest of the story isn't there. I look on your profile and see that all your stories are the same way. It was depressing to say the least. Anyway since I read this chapter already might as well comment about it. What first attracted me to this story was the summary and when I read this chapter it was completely different than what I thought it would be. I thought you did a great job of setting up the family background for the characters. It is refreshing to see a writer be able to convey how the characters feel about a situation in a subtle way rather than just outright saying "I hate my father for that." We see by their actions instead on how they feel about the situation. This chapter delivers so much with the emotion given yet at the same time not much has happened. I applaud you for your skills because I believe not many can achieve what you did in the span of one chapter. Anyway I wish to read more of your work so I will be looking up your community on livejournal and hopefully I'll be able to read more.

You're stories are very interesting; bound to be plagiarized! Smart move on moving them to a more secure place.

:) I stand by your decision all the way. Yes, I'm sad that I won't be able to read/finish some of the stories of yours that I was reading... But, I completely understand your reasoning. Please, let me know the instant you have your work published! :) I will definitely buy it.

i could almost feel the pai she felt whn she cied for charles, and he didnt come.

You know, I read your story Everybody Hates Logan and loved it. I haven't quite finished Against All Odds yet but I'm sure I'll get around to it.
This one distracted me away from AAO, but hell it's pretty much worth it.
First off, I love her name. Cassandra. Always had a nice ring to it, despite its tragic roots. Did you choose it on purpose?
I put off reading this story because I didn't really get the summary. But then so many people had it on their favorites list. So I decided to give it a try.
Now, I love Everybody Hates Logan but I didn't review it because... well, I don't really know either. Maybe I'll do that when I read it again.
Let me say this: by the end of the first chapter, I had a sneaky feeling telling me that Cass was...well, not normal. A little insane. Little proved to be the understatement of the year. If this offends you, I'm sorry, but I have to say she's batshit crazy. And it makes her all the more interesting.
I love Clara, she seems so real and three dimensional to me.
I am very very interested in Connor.
And as for Charles? He freaks me out. Even more than Berland does. Their relationship is borderline incest, isn't it? (I haven't finished yet so maybe I'll find out later.)
Incest doesn't really bother. (No duh, considering how much I adored Angel Sanctuary's story line. But I have to say I disliked the ending. The thing was controversial, blasphemous even but I just can't connect the God there to the God I worship so yes I'm a Christian).
BLAH! I'm blabbing. I've hit Angel Sanctuary. .

That was a heart wrenching story. At times I cried at the sheer sadness and intensity of it. Reading this story makes you think of all the abusive activities that really do go on in peoples day to day lives and it is heartbreaking to think that people have to go through things similar to this. You are a wonderful writer and have amazing potential. This is different from your other stories but I think this is some of your most beautiful work yet. The depth and intensity is amazing and I know that this story will haunt me on later occasions.
Your loyal fan,

I'm absolutely breathless. This story was amazing, confusing at times and quite disturbing, but still gripping and profound. You say you didn't enjoy writing it, and given the morbid subject matter, I don't really blame you, but I do rate you oh so much for following through with it right until the end. Some stories just have to be put out there, even if they aren't the most fulfilling.
I love the subtle hints you gave, not giving too much away too soon, giving just enough at just the right time. Both Charles and Connor are beyond terrible, and Cassie's dependance is really hard to stomach when thought about properly. You managed to work your first person perfectly, however, because the sense of comfort that Cassie got from Charles' presence was so very all-consuming, so much so that the extent of his evil isn't really felt at all.
Like all your other stories, your originality shines through here. Sites like fictionpress tend to breed authors with more or less the same ideas, and after a reading them for a while this starts to shine through, but you have a very extensive story list yourself, with each of your fics fabulous in their own right though they vary so much. I don't know if you plan on publishing any of your works sometime, but I will you all the best if you do. I'm sure you know already that you're amazingly talented. :)
Thanks so much for all of your stories. I'm not the most prolific of reviewers, but I want you to know that your work has entertained me for hours on end, and that I'm very, very, grateful to you for sharing it with us.
