| longtime lurker chapter 30 . 2/17
I've been following this work since my fangirl days in high school (for a scale of time, I've now gone through enough of college to feel somewhat jaded), and I am so glad to hear that you're still around. So many of the wonderful authors I used to follow around here have left that discovering your updated author profile made my night! :)

Hi Jessie, I just finished reading all 30 chapters in one sitting, and it is truly a wonderful story! Do you still work for the Army? If so, I hope everything is going well for you. I understand it has been a few years since you updated, but hopefully you will have the inspiration to post another chapter soon! Thanks again for sharing your work :)

Well I certainly enjoyed this story, or at least the beginning :) Hopefully it will stay just as enjoyable all the way through.
I really liked your main character, though your line "at least she could keep her identity secret" makes me think she gave the wrong name to them. She shows a lot of fortitude for someone that was locked up, and I really, really like that. I can't help but admit that I am very curious as to what she did, who she murdered. Hopefully I'll find out soon. I can definitely see how you got your awards from this piece-its obvious that you've worked hard and that you've put your soul in to this. I will continue reading, because I really enjoyed the style in which you write and describe her world. Like the blood on the key. Doesn't seem like a major detail but it brings the story to life, drills in that though these soldiers rescued her, they still killed to do so and may in fact be bad people themselves. BRAVO!

I enjoyed this. As a suggestion, I thought maybe there could strong adverbs/adjectives at time. I also like Riley's narrative. The dialogue flowed for the most part, but it would be even better if the characters trailed off a little. The beginning did a nice job of hooking me, coming from a person with a very low attention span. The plot was interesting enough, and overall it was good.

Are you serious? You're leaving it here? So close to the end? Now I have to go to bed frustrated about a 3-year cliffhanger. Thanks.
Seriously though, this is fantastically written. What I like the most about it is the setting. The steampunk world, the design of the Imperial family and their magic and politics and the aether. It all fits together really nicely and makes an interesting and different fantasy world, unlike any I've seen before. This is really worthy of being published. If you wrote a book, I'd totally buy it.

Write a book. Really. Please?
| mdogg34 chapter 30 . 8/21/2011
This...is SO good. Really, I read this straight through. When I got to the end...IT'S SUCH A CLIFFHANGER!
I hope one day you finish this and decide to post it on to FP.
Thank you so much, and keep writing. :)
| Compton chapter 2 . 3/18/2011
Another great chapter, now I'm officially caught up about what's going on here. And that's always good, if there is ever a hint of doubt, just cease it in the next chapter, awesome job with that.
And the pace is great, not to fast or slow and that is awesome when writing a story.
| Compton chapter 1 . 3/18/2011
Wow, very nice so far, and it really did deserve the Most Original Plot Award, never seen anything like this, and I've seen a lot on FictionPress in my short time here, this is awesome.
And the description, spot on, I'm serious I can not find a flaw in this, if someone can they are a better editor than me because this is demonstration of perfection!

Please, I beg you, finish this story. Or better yet, publish it as a novel. It is that good. I must know what happens!

the escape and the split seem surreal.

Just charged through this, several hours of engrossed reading. I think the conversation length at the end is especially workable. If Remington's physical abruptness is viewed in light of the stress. He has tensions every which-way, about bravery, maintaining his masks, and looking at death.

I think the timing on the trip is close to perfect. It's nature to gloss over the parts familiar or without mental concentration, and flying the greater distance than normal should be unnerving, but not mentally occupying. I think that is well justified.
P.S. I;m keeping track of your music, and I like it.
