This novel is simply EXCELLENT.. I somehow missed the previous chapter – so got a double treat this time. I love everything about this – from the skillful and evocative writing, to extremely compelling characters, to the mysterious plot with a hint of supernatural, to the promise of something even bigger from Demyan and Zophiel’s past. Not to mention the very thorough depiction of a “comrade” country’s mood and reality..
Please keep this up for a loooong time! :D Absolutely loving this.
I’m happy to say this book is a long one, and is scheduled to run for pretty much all of 2014. :D Isn’t it awesome? And Toivo and Demyan haven’t even bumped into each other yet! XD
I can’t get over Demyan. He’s SO FUNNY to me. He’s one of those dark, mysterious figures, yet he’s constantly stamping his feet and whining, “I wanna find the aaaaaangel!” I love how he figures out that Vesa is part of his prophecy, so he essentially yells “Mine!” and throws Vesa in the backseat of his car.
@ Lianne: hmmm… interesting. For my part, I didn’t perceive Demyan as “whiny” – more like fiercely, passionately driven to his counterpart, which makes him very appealing (yes, I am a hopeless romantic, sue me >:D )
@gomidog: You are very welcome! – Thank you for creating such a wonderful story (I am picky about stories and it’s a real treat when I find one that I really like – which, I have to say, has been happening a lot with Sparkler’s lineup! :D ) As for TCAF, I have been wanting to go for several years, but can’t make it this spring – high hopes for 2015 though! ^^
