This is looking pretty good. :) I like your writing style and mood. It leaves a lasting impression of good characterization.

I hope you don't mind reviews even when a story is complete. :P One of my favorite things about plots in the supernatural/fantasy/what-have-you category is that they're so full of potential because magic makes things awesome. Things exploding around this poor girl definitely piques interest.

You had a neat hook for the readers. I had to laugh at the whole beginning scene in bed. Immediately afterwards though, the writing felt a bit monotonous for a short while as you wrote about how "she did this and then she did that and then this and then that." Just be careful of making every aspect of Talia's life that's worth mentioning interesting to the reader. No one likes a list of boring activities.

Something else to watch out for is the use of adverbs. They can enhance a sentence, sure, but when overused, they just make writing sound lazy. You want to show your audience what's going on, not just tell them.

[The cupcakes exploded violently all over her shirt.] When something explodes, it's safe to assume the explosion was pretty violent, hence why you used the word "explode" rather than "pop" or something.

[“Hell no,” she said coldly.] Again, saying "Hell no" tends to make the reader assume she's angry and adding "coldly" doesn't do anything except make the writing sound redundant.

[“Not much,” he gestured at her panzarotti.] Careful with dialogue tags. Actions aren't dialogue tags so when you have the comma after dialogue like this, it's followed by "said" or some form of a said book-ism since it's something being spoken and not performed.

For narration, it seems a bit too casual at times. I understand the narrator is an eighteen year old girl, but some parts like when she's changing clothes after the muffin incident feel too informal for narration and pull the chapter down.

Overall, I think the story is nice. I hope there's more characterization for Alan and maybe even Diane since she seems important to his characterization. I like Talia as a character. It can be hard to make the orphan teen with magic(?) thing less cliche than it is, but so far, she doesn't seem to dwell on her life of misery and woe, which is good for keeping her from being whiny and a character we wouldn't want to read about it. No, she seems to have other things on the mind like Bennett. :)

Also, I'm curious why things explode around Talia and I sort of wish it wasn't stated bluntly and then forgotten for the rest of the chapter. It seems connected to her emotions so I'd think something might've gone kablooey during lunch and made that scene just a little more exciting.

The end was sweet. I was about to be quite upset with that boy, but his character has been redeemed. And left us with a bit of a cliffhanger. Always good for pulling readers back. I think he's connected to the blowing up of things. XD Good job.

Cutesy!

I like how thing just "explode". Bennett seems nice.

The iPod is a creative gift, since it has all the songs.

Please keep writing!

I am curious for Part 2 :D

Good story. Interestings twists and nice images (e.g. Japan and the lake). I wish I had your fantasy and creativity... sigh ;-)
victoria chapter 21 . 1/1/2010
What the hell! Seriously Maya? You can't end a story like that! And now we have to wait an entire month for a PREVIEW of the next chapter, that is so not fair. I liked the plot twist there but there's so much more we all NEED to know, way to end a story in a complete cliff hanger. (But you know it's still awesome)
Tishy chapter 21 . 12/31/2009

U can kill him off anytime noww k cause i'll be just fine and dandy... and I'm just gonna stop asking for plot details cause they never seem to be what I expect.. but i still can't get enough..so keep it coming! HAPPY NEW YEAR! in about 5 more hours!
CATM chapter 21 . 12/31/2009
Wow! I honestly didn't think there could be a bigger cliffy than the last chapter - but you've managed to do it! :P I can't wait for the rest of the story and I have no idea how I'm going to wait until the end of January to read more - I guess I'll just have to go back and re-read The Eternal Divinity so that I'm ready for the rest. So proud of you for finishing the entire story! Happy New Year and ttyl! C.
