The biggest strength of this story is how much attention it pays to the characters and their relationships to one another. The main character Eleanor, Ellie, gets a number of meaningful relationships: her mom, her dad, her sister, a magical mouse named Gerald, and the vampire Lord Janus. The characters are all lovely in their own ways, so this is a comforting story to read.

The biggest weaknesses are an extremely leisurely pace and overwritten descriptions (which I pointed out to the author.) With a tighter structure and writing style, this has good potential!

I think that the Slice of Life tag could be worthwhile, because while there is a broader and high-stakes plot in formation from the looks of it, the story very much focuses on the day-to-day activites of the characters. I think that readers of Slice of Life, would appreciate the detail of the characters' daily lives.
