Ok, well the brief explanations helped me out considerably. I'm completely enthralled with this story! I hope you continue this shortly, but I see you're a pretty swift updater. That's even better! You have amazing writing talent, and you have wonderful ideas. I wish I could come up with stuff like this!
I enjoy reading scenes between Dahlia and Callum. Their conversations seem natural, as if they've known each other for a long time. I'm curious to see where you're going to take this. I understand that in the prophecy, Dahlia is the one to destroy the vampire race. Well, Callum is a vampire as well, so I'm wondering how he plans to save her. Hmm, I'm sure you have some massive creative idea planned out. ;)

Each chapter seems to get better and better! I'm slightly confused with what "Letalis Flora" is exactly, but I'm sure that now Dahlia's heard the name spoken, I'll get a deeper explanation later on. It's a lovely sounding phrase. I'm assuming it's "lethal flower" in another language? Which means, "the deadly flower." Eh? ;) Is it Latin?
Anyways, the other thing I'm wondering about is Callum. What did Dario mean by him being "mystical?" Is he more than just an average vampire, or even, a superior vampire? Well obviously, but how so? Ah! Mysterious Callum. His secrets shall unfold in time. I am no doubt drawn to him though. He's definitely portrayed as the epitome of a vampire.
I absolutely adore this chapter in particular. You managed to write out such a long fight scene and make it consistently interesting. I also laughed at all the small sarcastic statements, also located in the previous chapter. "They serve spaghetti as well." Hehe. I love it a lot!

o, lots of info here.
i like this chapter. i like her confusions, but i think she's being a little too silly. Superman? naw. like callum said, she's probably just in shock.
speaking of callum. amazing. i'm in love with him already. he's perfect, really. hopefully something will happen. soon. well. not too soon. you shouldn't rush it, ya know? but, soon would be nice.
anyway, terrific as always. can't wait for the next update ]

Very strong beginning. Not completely up my alley topic-wise, but I'll try to read some more and find a bit to critique. Thanks for the review.

I wandered over to see what you write and I found a very good story! I really like it. Callum and Dahlia both interest me. I have difficulty writing strong female roles. I don't know why. Its just something I struggle with. You do it really well though. Dahlia is a great character (and my favorite flower). I'll be waiting for your next update.

Oh, nice cliffhanger! By the way, I love "Blue Monday." ;)
I don't have much to say for this chapter. It was nicely written, as usual, and the plot seems to be moving along at a nice pace. Seems like Callum is a pretty high up there guy; I'm a little surprised that Dahlia didn't know about him before, or at least know as much as his name. As for Fletcher, Dahlia didn't seem surprised at all when he called her by name. Does that mean they have seen each other before? I was just a little confused because it was Veronica's run and not hers. Hmm, so Fletcher is in league with the vampires, eh? To a certain extent, I'm thinking. Also, nice scene bewteen Dahlia and Will. :D

I like your story a lot. If you had never reviewed my story, I never would've come across it and I would have really missed out! It will be nice to find out more about Callum and Dahlia, and what they got going for each other. :P Have you planned out most of the story or is this sort of a make it up as you go along thing?
Either way it's good. :)

Chapter two was half and half in my opinion. Most of it seemed slow and dull but got more interesting towards the end because I'm curious about the conversation Dahlia overheard between Ayden and Ellie. However, I thought the chapter was necessary for setting everything up, and the slowness was subtly masked by your wonderful use of words and impressive vocabulary. I had to smile at all these words, and that helped me get through the chapter.
Hmm, Mr. Callum Knightley Mr. Green Eyes mysterious man from prologue who happens to be a vampire...perhaps? Only time will tell, I suppose.
This chapter was amazing-much more fast-paced, entriguing, and mysterious. Very nice overall atmosphere. There are two little excerpts that stuck out to me that particularly beautiful, both of which were descriptions of Callum. The first was about his scar: "A small scar ran above his left eyebrow, the only imperfection on his perfect face. It wasn’t so much as an imperfection, but a characteristic that made him that much more beautiful." The second one was about his eyes: "Contrasting nicely against the dark night and the black colour of his hair, they looked like the sun shining through heavy clouds after a rainstorm. Or maybe they were the rainbow that came through; a rare occurrence." I just wanted to let you know how deep and poetic I thought those particular lines were, in an attempt to make you feel proud. ;)
It never occured to me to wonder this before, but now it finally clicked in my brain by the end of the previous chapter. Now that I analyze the situation, I'm highly curious about Dahlia's speedy recovery. The fact that no one recovers that quickly is making me wonder if there's more to it than we currently know. Hmm. Maybe I'm over-analyzing, but that's my assumption.

I'll say it again, I love this story a whole lot. I love Callum, and I love the idea of a Callum and Dahlia pairing. There's not a lot to say about this chapter except I enjoyed the time alone with Callum and Dahlia. That's about it-and your description is amazing :o] I'm jealous! Anyway, update as soon as you can. I'll be waiting for the next chapter.

I like your point of view with the charactors. It's very interesting. Callum is a totally awsome charactor
