I really like the play on words and the way you describe that overwhelming pull of attraction, even when it is 'wrong'.

Very well paced, packed full of information but not overloading the reader.  Particularly like the way the dialogue develops and gives insight into the characters.

Posted on Fri, 19 Aug 2016

This is great - the sense of unease is beautifully maintained, with Weasley giving the reader shudders and our concern for Kit growing all the time.  Excellent cliffhanger ending.  Please do keep posting more of this, it's so good.

Nice start to this.  I like the characters and the questions raised by the arrival of the 'cursed' ship.  The set up really holds together.

Posted on Tue, 26 Jul 2016

Lots of strange and fantastical things here, with a fluidity between dreams and reality.  I was wondering if it might help with the pacing if you used the dialogue to push the story forward - eg if, in the conversation between the narrator and...

Hello!  I enjoyed this very much.  Beautifully constructed, and some lovely strong phrases like 'the yoghurty morning light'.  A mysterious and unsettling atmosphere with underlying humour.  A rewarding read.
