Interesting so far…

By Palladian, author of Super

May 12, 2012: The first thing that struck me about this story is that the author is very good at setting scene and tone. I’ve gotten very clear mental pictures of the action and setting so far, everywhere from a bar where everything is tinted deep blue to a polar cavern in a zoo. The slightly on edge, spooky feeling that something is about to come out at you from any corner you turn is something the author also somehow manages to keep up throughout the initial chapters, and I tip my hat to him for it.

There’s been a lot of action in the first few chapters, as well, with some bloody murders and flashbacks of scary past happenings. There have also been some mysterious people appearing to watch the action, as well, and I find myself wondering when they’re going to get into the game.

Lots of points of fascination in the plot so far, but what I find myself wishing is that the author would do more to flesh out the characters. I find them interesting so far, but they still seem mostly two dimensional. As the story develops, I’d really like to see the author delve more into who they really are and their motivations beyond the surface, to truly bring them off of the page.

At any rate, a very interesting start that I can definitely recommend reading!
