LOVE THIS! I can't wait for the next chapter now! Such a cliffhanger! Naughty author!
Author's Response: I'm glad you like it! Sorry about the cliffhanger - my philosophy on chapters are that they should either be self-contained mini-stories or have a cliffhanger tying the chapter into the next one. Sometimes both!

Well done! You continue with the decent pacing and character development whilst widening the scope as well. Well done and do continue!
Author's Response: I intend to continue! I'll post 2-3 chapters a week until the story is done and then ruminate for a while to decide if I feel like a sequel.

What an incredibly well-told tale, nearly letter-perfect, creative, deep, world-building, and TG too. Fine mix of happiness and challenges, magic and mundane. I hope you have a lot more left to tell in this saga, including Thea's experiences as a newly-made woman, AND a powerful scion. Nicely done!
Author's Response: Thanks for your input! I'm definitely trying to balance things. I like the occasional high fantasy or grimdark fantasy tale, but they aren't my forte. I have a lot more to tell - I'd say I've got the story just short of the half-way point so far.

Love the interactions with these "gods". I hope their "uncle" gets what's coming to him.
Author's Response: He'll get at least *some* of what's coming to him. In the meanwhile, I have one or two not-quite-so-big baddies. Coming up next chapter: Igna Battle-Blessed!

Excellent story so far with decent pacing and character portrayal and development. Keep up the good work.
Author's Response: I'm glad you like it! Contra my usual approach, I'm writing this story by the seat of my pants and am having a lot of fun just seeing where it goes.

This is super exciting! I'm at the edge of my seat, and wondering what will happen next! I hope Thea finds a useful adventure talent soon too! LOVE IT... MOAR!
Author's Response: I'm so glad you like it! Thea's talents have been a little slower in coming, and they're going to be a bit unpredictable but *minor spoilers* I've just outlined a scene of Thea's absolute badassery in chapter 8 (or 9 - I'll see how the scenes parse out) that makes Cano's feats of heroism look like weak sauce.

I love this! I can't wait till there's more!
Author's Response: I'm glad you like it! My plan is to get a new chapter up every 2-3 days for the rest of July. Can I keep the pace up? I dunno, but I guess we'll find out!

huckleberry finn anyone? I'm loving all the mythology and connections to different books. The character development is extremely smooth too, and i'm loving the vivid world described. This is one of those stories that i'd miss terribly if it were to go dark and unfinished. Keep up the awesome work!
Author's Response: I can't promise I'll finish the story, as I've yet to write it - but I've just added another chapter and intend to write more. I'm so glad you like it!

I love this story! I love stories about scions, and this is looking to be awesome!
Author's Response: I'm so glad you like it! "Past" fantasy isn't my usual forte, but I'm trying to expand my writing horizons!
