I think i'm in love with Kara.
While only 3 chapters in, this story is already incredibly refreshing and captivating. Its a unique take on the more cliché were stories on the platform, unlike of those this is original and combines various elements of fantasy and sci-fi which always makes for a great story. The world building is foundational sound but i would love to see it further explored in future chapters.
Read the story now
i especially loved the quite literal inner conflict and while it may be confusing for some perhaps a more distinct font differentiation might help other readers. I've often wondered what would happen if Bradbury and Lois Cha made a baby and well, i have my answer now.
Kara is an especially strong character who i think most of us can relate to especially in this current climate of uncertainty. Specifically, the anxiety and hesitation at constant war with our greater more fully realised selves just beneath the surface begging to break through. you can't help but root for her!
I look forward to seeing the way this story progresses.
