    Hi Cass,

    Well you already know my thoughts on your epic, so I'll leave it to the others here to give you some fresher feedback! [​IMG]

    Good luck with the rest of the Tale!

    I really liked how you moved the story along with only the dialogue. Read it out loud and you can insert better punctuation in the last half, but your style is very impressive. I could even hear the differences in how certain characters phrased what they said.
    Ever thought of writing it into a play and just dispensing with the descriptions as much as possible? Well, maybe on another project, but that's what I read as your strength.
    Don't stop now, I can't wait to read the next chapter and find out what happens next!
    Thanks, Franis

    The story has a good pace and flowing dialog, it treads some familiar ground (reminded me of joan of arc, for example), but it was done very nicely and with style, if it were horrible I wouldn't of kept reading till the end, would I? [​IMG]
    Of course, it is only part of a bigger story so there is no point in discussing closure. One thing I would suggest is to try and work more on punctuation, the lack of it in some parts got me really confused.

    All in all, a fine tale, well done.
