| Chevon Turnbull chapter 7 . 6/6/2013
Olden days are something else; she can be killed just for defying orders? What about just “normal” discipline.
She wants to find Levi and die? What is wrong with her? She needs to find Levi and Live.
Sam is saying he can’t allow someone in the army who is barely mobile but yet still they wanted Elijah? Now that is something.
"You should be so proud of yourself," Samuel is a man of few words but Grace sure got him to talk and she should be proud of herself, she has inspired so many.
Grace needs to figure out her feelings, it’s either Levi or Aaron and we all know that Levi is easier because if David has his way Grace and Aaron will never be together, but if she were to become a Princess that would be something.
She’s walking! (smiley face)
I love her determination of trying to catch up with them, but maybe she should just let it go…but she’s not going to.
"I can't inconvenience you any further. I must rejoin my troops. She sounds just like a soldier.
I’m kinda sad that she didn’t tell Michael goodbye and Mrs Ahn is very generous.
AMAZING Chapter! Michael is willing to take care of Grace….nice ending.

My question is how she got stabbed….was it from sinking and rolling in the waves that the knife got moved?
Now Aaron…it’s not embarrassing to show your emotions…especially seeing that you’ve lost comrades and that the girl you love may die…
Oh it was two kisses in two days… and not one day like I thought…
AWWW! Samuel cares for Grace….she got discharged…well she served a good fight! Even though it was brief. I hope Levi is alive…
| Chevon Turnbull chapter 5 . 5/27/2013
I love the kiss between Grace and Levi! OMG! I wondered if anyone saw but I guess not, because there were no reactions from anyone.
Grace this is not the time to freeze! Levi can’t be by your side all the time! You’ve been trained like all the others, just stand up and fight!
HMPH! I am so disappointed in her! She stopped trying to figure out “how not to drown” because of what her father said…..and right after Levi told you he loved you..Grace I am disappointed!
How can Aaron dive under the water for Grace if he’s wearing the same armour? I guess he’s not...
My question is why did they move from where they were? Especially seeing that there was a storm?
Why did he push the man, if he was helping Grace? Aaron is more than jealous.
Punched right in the gut! That served him right..attacking the man when he was only trying to help!
I knew Aaron loved Grace! Oh Boy! A love triangle is brewing! Two guys in one day have told her that they love her…
Kangin? I thought his name was Michael…
She sat on a map? Don’t you mean mat?
AMAZING CHAPTER! I hope they can mend her stomach injury!

When I first seen this story I was like.. This is not something I'd read.. but I did anyway and it was great! I haven't looked to see if you had anything else about this.. but I would of liked for the epilogue to be a little bit longer and more detailed.. like what happened when they returned... things like that. I know we can use our imagination... I just felt like that last two chapters we rushed.. But it was really good and i enjoyed it!

When you said Elijah had learned to read and write I was like 0.o? But it seems not a lot of people know how to do this.
I forgot about Charlie…you haven’t mentioned him since the first time…
WOW! Elijah has some strong words of wisdom!
WTH! Is wrong with her father? How did she shame him? If she didn’t do it Elijah would be dead because the army was still taking him away to train…and we all know with his leg that’s impossible….and if he can’t train he can’t be in the war…why can’t their parents see that? I AM SO DISAPPOINTED IN HER FATHER! WAKE UP OLD MAN! You’re daughter did a very amazing thing!
Is she stupid? I wasn’t saving those words…all I was going to do is come home and prove to him that he is wrong!
Why is she so concerned with what others think But if a prince held my hand I would be shocked….
Aaron is a little slick…I’m sure he was glad to hold her hand…for a brief moment….She’s a small town girl that doesn’t know the size of her country….She’s inspired so many people and the person who raised her is so oblivious to the fact…how ironic…
Aaron is putting the moves on your grace….I honestly thought he was gonna kiss her when he looked into her eyes…

Oh man, I probably sound like a broken record, but this story ended so quickly! I'm really sorry to see it go.
Best of luck in your other stories! I may be back to check them out in the future, but right now I have a long list of other authors and stories I've been neglecting to read because of finals. Again, good luck!

Oh my god! After reading the last chapter just now, I went back to my email to delete the notification, and saw there were two more!
Three chapters in one day?! Must be Christmas :P :)
Now in response to the chapter...
Wow. That was very...sudden. At the end of the last chapter, I kind of had this sinking feeling that it would take a lot of effort for Grace and Aaron to get out of this mess. But apparently it only takes one chapter haha :)
I totally don't blame you if you were trying to just heave the rest of the story off of your chest and put it down to rest so you don't feel responsible for it anymore. And if you weren't trying to do that, sorry if that assumption offended you in any way. I just felt the ending came suddenly and abruptly. Not to say I didn't enjoy reading it, though. It was well written even though it felt rushed. I could definitely picture everything, even the gruesome details.
I actually feel really bad for Jason, like he didn't deserve the end that he got. He was a good person, I feel. He wasn't evil with his father. But at the same time, he had a cruel side. Maybe things will work out for him because I don't remember reading explicitly that he was killed...?
Okay! On to the next chapter for today!

Oh my gosh, when I saw the notification email for a chapter update for this story in my inbox, I thought you were notifying everybody that you'd decided to end the story after all. I mean, not many authors update twice in as many days, so I thought instead of a chapter, this would be an AN. But I was SO relieved that it wasn't, and that you're continuing :)
This chapter seemed very...desperate. I mean, the emotions it gave off was of desperation and pain and love. So I thought it was very well written. I can't wait to see how things play out.
I've finished all my finals today, so you'll always be able to count on a review from me when you update - I suddenly have a lot more free time now that I'm finished studying! Update as soon as you can!
| acherontamovebo chapter 20 . 5/1/2013
I'm so sorry I never reviewed before. I feel really bad now. It's just that I've been reading your story during study breaks (so about a chapter a break) because I have finals coming up and I've been really stressed. So usually after reading, I go back to studying and forget about the reviews because I usually like to leave long ones, but I haven't had the time.
Thankfully, finals are over tomorrow, so I'm going to take the time to review now, and try to make up for my previous lack of enthusiasm...
First, I REALLY hope you finish this story! I mean, I suppose it would be silly not to at this point because we're so far along in the plot, but I hope you don't just drop out now anyway. I hate almost getting to the end, and then not finding any, and despite the small number of reviews, I definitely am interested in how the triangle will play out!
I think the reason that not many people read/review your story is because it's on the topic of war, under the genre of romance, and that just may not sit well with many people. But PLEASE don't let that stop you from finishing it! I would love to hear the end!

This was so...AKLSFHASKJFHASKJ I DONT EVEN KNOW WHAT WORDS TO USE TO DESCRIBE THE EXCELLENCE OF THIS WRITING Awesome job, man! Please continue updating! I will follow this story with everything and support u till the end! :D

So far so good! :D

Please don’t tell me that the blood is her menstration…
But I guess it is because Samuel backed up rather quickly… and he even apologised…
Pants? I thought they wore tunics…
I think you need to tell me what they’re tunic actually is because all I see is a dress when I google it…
She’s using a blanket as a pad? I always wondered what the women of Long Ago used…but what will she do when it gets full? I’m a bit lost…
Congratulations Grace! You’re training paid off, you came in first. Samuel actually smiled, no matter how faint it may be….
I understand Issac’s point of view. So Grace did it on her own and it paid off.
Don’t tell me that she’s gonna get raped because Aaron would kill the “soldier” that called her a whore.
Okay I’m confused, is it Levi or the drunk who got beat up? I think I read that it was the drunk, am I right?
Banishment, what kinda laws do they have going on? I honestly think if Levi didn’t do something she would have been damaged pretty badly….until the “officers” heard her screams, or even if they got to hear her scream…
Goryeo? Aren’t they from Mokpo. Where is Goryeo?
The drunk got banished…and he was old? 0.o
Poor Levi..20 lashes, are you freaking kidding me…..Have mercy!
They kissed OMG! The romance is heating up…I hope, or are you gonna throw in a love triangle that includes Prince Aaron, now that would be something…seeing that she’s a commoner and David would never allow it…
AWESOME CHAPTER! I can’t wait for an update! ) (smiley face).

She chopped of her hair..sigh! In my opinion she could’ve left her long hair and just kept it in a bun…
Why do I envision Issac as a fat chef. What is his physique?
She’s taking that broken nose like a man! Aaron is in love with grace, he is so protective of her!
Poor Issac is getting scolded.
Oh her nose is not broken…
"Yes, you can take care of yourself," He grinned. "Did I also tell you I've grown wings and can fly too?" I narrowed my eyes. LOL!
But I could tell I was slowing him down. I was almost dead last, but thankfully, there were some other village boys who had worse experiences with exercise than I did and were panting and exhausted already. LOL! Wow!
She got no breakfast and had to run in place with a pole over her head….and Samuel wiped the blood off her face with his finger and tasted it…ewww! At least he didn’t eat breakfast….I guess it’s somewhat fair. I know she ate a bit just now but she needs her strength.
Levi doesn’t seem to be getting over the fact that her hair is gone…
Maybe it was coincidence, or maybe it was the fact that he was true to his word, that he felt I was his responsibility. Or maybe, something more… I vote for something more, it’s called a crush.
Samuel is cruel! Because she came in dead last she had to run the course again. Really what if Elijah had come instead of her? That would be a disaster because he practically only has one leg….
Great Chapter…I wonder what torturous exercise is in store for her next….

Well the first thing I have to say is that the summary got me really interested because I’m a sucker for romance. The second thing is the little intro you have in Italics and I’m OMG! That is interesting! The names of the Land and village is very creativeGalatria and Mokpo. When I read the synopsis it reminded me of Mulan. I love the brother/sister interactions. Now I know their father is old but he should have woken up to see his son off.
"The only disgrace to Galatria is the fact that you won't let a willing citizen fight for her country!" When she said that, I think it slapped David in the face! LMAO!
Levi enlisted too? I can detect a love triangle between Grace, Aaron and Levi already.
David is a sexist! OMG!
LOL! She got wolf whistles.
It’s great that she stood up for her family.
"Women are weak! Women are supposed to be married! Have children! Women cannot fight!" I LMAO’d when I read that.
I WANT MORE! I can’t wait to read the rest of this story! Great Job!
