I wish I could kill the Lady. What a portrayal of evil; very well done! I loved it.

Snatchers! Oh no! The chapter title is a perfect reflection of the content. I hung onto every word, desperate to see what would happen, and now this! What a way to end!

The dog chase was intense. I am glad Cray rescued the child. One can tell Rayne has no love for children, since he referred to it as a brat. But he also avoided the publicity when the men came to kill the dog. I love his character.

Crying is a sign of strength!
Goodness, I loved the entire conversation between the two. It was intriguing, and gave a window into their pasts.

Oooh, the talk between Cray and his dad was good. It is the usual mistrust. I am glad Cray is not swayed by suspicion and stays with Rayne.
I loved the ending. More talk about Rayne!

I love how the chapter started out so peaceful and calm, with his thoughts of home and past life, and then grew more tense. I think the ending was my favorite. The characters are really griping me.

Oh no, oh no, oh no, my heart broke. Poor Petron!
Rayne has a mind on him; water walking and invisibility (it must have been). I find him to be most intriguing!
The chapter title is her silent plea for more. And my voice is joining hers.

The beginning was rather sad. These Snatchers must cause a lot of grief and despair among families.
I am beginning to like Rayne. I must admit you surprised me there! Good job.

I love this chapter. The character interactions were spectacular. I enjoyed the girl at the pond.
And the boy's remark about "a face like that" was very deceptive. For a moment I thought she was hideous!

Great first chapter. I was very engaged by the whole thing, and the ideas presented. I am eager to learn more about the Lady. Your characters are very fresh in my mind. Haylden is my favorite so far.
I do have one opinion, and I hope not to harm you, but I think the Snatchers should be capable of speaking properly. Although most aliens speak in broken english, it is not a required trait.

Riveting. Thats the one word i would use to describe this story. Love how you juxtapose the sad background of hayldon with his creepiness in mthe present. People are never black and white.

I like the start of this. It immediately hooked me, because I wanted to know why the scar was because of love and you maintained the enigma for quite a while, creating suspense. The dialogue till the end seemed very natural too. However the last scene seems a bit unrealistic, or at least it happened to fast. Her father couldn't have gone from knowing she's the narrator to absolutely believing she's Cresta- and kissing her- so quickly. There, I think you need to make the pace slower.

Man you really went ham on the description of the scar, initially I was skeptical of this sort of opening but then I realized it actually works well. Because it's such a crazy scar that we start to wonder how he got it (which is explained right after). Also I think starting with the main character in peril while not original makes the whole opening an effective hook overall because let's face we want to know what happens even if we know he's not going to die or anything.
I like how you use dialogue to show the relationship between narrator and Haylden, the nicknames show how close they are or at least familiar. And I think it was also effective at the end to showcase Cray's well shock to what happened and I think I'd be right in saying Cray is straight?
There isn't a whole tonne in this chapter but I am of the opinion chucking us into the plot first chapter is never a good idea. In that respect I felt you world-building a little with the relationships, backstory and a bit of everyday life was the right choice into easing people into your story. Eh, the summary seems like this could be interesting but it will hinge on how you plan this one out.
A little bit of info-dumping here which I can relate to as sometimes it's hard to integrate it without just telling us through exposition. Perhaps cutting down on some of those sections could help with pacing but then again it's not really that big of a problem. Apart from that your writing style seems to have improved alot from JAT, better sentences, better grammar and nicer pace in my opinion.

Why isn't this a book? Have you considered writing one? Gosh, this story is particularly intriguing to me but you haven't updated! I really really like this story!
