Reviews for The Cruelest Fate
Faerie-Story chapter 1 . 6/22/2009
I think out of all the recent authors that I remember who wrote about death, it is only you and Tolkien who make death into an ally for us. In the Silmarillion, Tolkien stated that death was a gift given to men.

What you've written means means a great deal to me. I've really enjoyed reading it. I got a sense of the Charon in Greek mythology ferrying the dead across the river Styx. I also thought of one of my favorite songs while reading one of your lines about paradise. It's called Martyr's Song by Todd Agnew. If you haven't heard it, listen to it (it's on Itunes). It's an entire song about heaven.

"He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away." Revelation 21:4

Interesting poem. I liked it. Only God knows where we'll go in life but all in all a good poem. Keep it up.
