This was pretty cool. The language was beautiful, but I had to keep checking the blurb to remember what each of the words meant. I’d recommend adding that key to the story itself, maybe at the top or the bottom of the part itself. It would make it easier to look at them for reference. Hm… at first, I was beginning to think the main character was a mary sue but I was glad to see that she did have some flaws, including one major flaw that brought about her undoing. The ending of the story fit it well, but I would have liked to see a bit more meat to the story. I guess I’m used to reading longer stories, then. Enjoy reading and stay cool.
