I love the characterization. Poor Julia.
I really don't like the cat idea. sorry.
Otherwise, great work as usual
A bit slow... probably will pick up soon.
innocence scares me for some reason!
Author's Response: She can be pretty scary sometimes... ;)
I love how she apologizes to Charlie. First time it sounded sincere to me! (Sorry charlie is a common expression)
Wow. Looking forward to the next update! I really like this twist.
That's a scary situation.
Now I have to wait until Friday?!!
I like Julia.
How mean of Ms. Grimm.
And the fact is, Claudia was cold to Alex - even if Alex was mothered well, it's not like the real thing. And she kept it a major secret. Alex's reaction is typical of adopted children. Lilith really needs some psychological training.
I can't believe the book is over!
LOL. I find myself alternately amused and frustrated by Alexandra and Abraham. She really is her father's daughter.
Nothing much seemed to happen in this chapter. Well, at least it's not a cliffhanger.
So she saw Manuelito, and this confirms that she's really going to die in the next seven years. I figured that would have to be the big change from HP.
That thing that is hiding is definitely the same thing she met at the hodag. It's time for some Abraham Thorn confrontation - both to resolve her history with Claudia, and to destroy that thing.
Author's Response: Hogan! The Hodag is a different monster. :o
