Reviews for Icarus Swift, Natural Philosopher
Gespry-Locksley chapter 1 . 2/21/2018
I love it! The story has a unique premise, interesting characters, action and mystery. Plus, I like the use of such varied vocabulary. "Atavistic", love it. Nicely done.

Two critiques: first, it is very gory, but it is also tempered by the other elements. However, the action is so fast-paced I was confused and had to reread more than once. Second, Felix's use of "Oh dear" is usually good but can seem a little contrived at points.

Hi there. Sorry for the long wait. I really love Icarus Swift and Felix! Wilhelmina is really irritating, though that was intentional, yes? Anyway, can't wait to get on to the net chapter.

Another Icarus Swift story that was fun to read. I enjoyed seeing some Norse mythic creatures I hadn't seen before, and a fun take on a classic legend. Looking forward to future adventures!

I'm sorry it was only that I could give an honest and comprehensive review. I really like this series,it is very original. It could serve as a nice compliment to your captain dice adventures. However,I wish you would grow out of your 12-year-old boy archetype. Man,it is really getting tired. Perhaps it is time to grow beyond this archetype and develop alternative literary paths. Learn to experiment. Thanks! Your friend:Bien

good job mentioning the different animal things they did back then.
Jave Harron chapter 6 . 12/27/2009
This was a pretty good chapter. We get to see Icarus act very Byronic and assholish, and him get a slight bit of karma back. Admiral is pretty awesome as far as animal sidekicks go. Though why a bear is named for a naval rank, I have little idea.

Awesome Christmas special! Nice to see Father Christmas/Odin appearing. Now this is is how an Xmas special should be!

I've never heard of the Krampus, did you think that up yourself or base it on something?
Russell Figgins chapter 3 . 12/21/2009
this reminds me of Sleepy Hollow, what with the step mother named Archer summoning a ghost to kill her husband and stepdaughter to take over the family fortune.

this looks interesting, i'd like to see them fight an evil twisted version of Santa.
Jave Harron chapter 4 . 12/17/2009
I enjoyed the last few chapters and the characters working together. Still, I think a lot of Swift's assistants and compatriots might be given some cool side stories. Though I can foresee that taking away from the primary cast.

I as going to give you a little constructive criticism but... I will fail entirely. I just wanted to say that this is fantastic and I can't wait for the next installment. Each chapter is so long and fully developed that I am prepared to wait for it, however I hope it will be sooner rather than later.

You really have a good sense of plot as well as characterization and I felt invested in what was going on. You also dwell entirely on the present which is refreshing. Very well done, in my opinion.
