L.Shan chapter 2 . 8/11/2011
I really like what you have so far! The idea is very interesting and Cecily is a good choice of character; she's not perfect, she's not a nice person (outwardly, at least) and she has a lot to learn.

If I was to critique just one thing, though, I would suggest you begin with the scene involving Wren and Cecily - your current chapter one, to me, seemed a little abrupt. Perhaps a bit more about Cecily's current life could be made known so that the transformation comes as a big deal to the reader as well as to Cecily. They're just my suggestions though, feel free to disregard them!

Overall, a nice beginning and I'm looking forward to see where you take this!
Luridpretty chapter 1 . 8/8/2011
This is very interesting. It draws the reader in and really makes them wonder what could have happen to's definitely done that to me! The way she "had gone to bed as a beauty and awoken as a monster" is very original, because a lot of authors are too in love with their pretty characters to do that. This chapter is short but powerful, it really raises interest and gets its point across. Great job.
