The only problem with this fiction... is that there are not enough chapters! The quality is so good that it makes me want to read the author's other fiction.
- Style & Grammar
This is well written, no grammar, syntax nor style issues. The layout is good which makes the text pleasant to read. English is not my native language, so I may have missed some things...
At first it seems like a classic breakup story, and it's so well written that it almost doesn't need more. However, there is more! A mysterious disappearance, family secrets, a magical world... everything is exciting and makes you want to keep reading.
A real dive into the psychology and emotions of the MCs. Their thoughts are so well detailed, and flow so easily, that makes the story. I instantly put myself in Cassandra and Aiden's shoes and didn't get out of their heads until the end of the available chapters. A tour de force given their emotionnal opposition. I may be a little biased as I really enjoy following the psychology of characters, and even more so when they are complex, but in any case this is perfect for me!
