Whoever said that the "pen is mightier than the sword" was correct: writing is my place to vent, to dream, to express myself without restraint.

Binge-worthy!

What a page turner! I loved the slow-burn romance between Ian and Lena and the plot was very entertaining. The last few chapters had me hooked and I thoroughly enjoyed reading this :)

I'm hooked!

First of all, GREAT first chapter--it really set the overall tone and plot for the book. Secondly, I love the first opening lines of chapter 2, which sets up the character as a "rogue" and gives us her modus operandi. I guess it would depend on who you ask whether she is a rogue or not if she's protecting the helpless which is more of a vigilante/protector and certainly to her own pack she would be seen as a rogue because she injured the alpha. In any event, LOVE this and am looking forward to reading more whenever you update. If I might offer a small suggestion--and believe me, I was guilty of this for a long time--indent whenever each character speaks so that the reader can tell who is speaking and it doesn't appear as one paragraph. I had to keep reminding myself to do this too when I first started writing fic, but other than that, you did a great job!

Leave you wanting more...

Overall, I really enjoyed reading this. The teaser at the end of the last chapter left me wanting to know more and from what I can tell so far, this story has the potential for many more chapters. I like that there is some mystery surrounding Accalia's and Jem's past and the issues with mates and family issues make them appear human even though they are werewolves. I would like to see more background on pack law (I guess that is the correct term), as well as the power struggles among alphas and the different packs. All of this helps to build a richer story, but the fact that we don't know the answers to these is actually a good thing, because it keeps the reader wanting more/guessing throughout. I don't have much experience with reading werewolf stories, but this one has some strong points going for it: Accalia is mysterious, her instant attraction to Mr. Knight leaves room for loads of steamy, sexually-charged scenes, and Jem's issue with her mate adds some conflict to the plot. Great job, and I'm looking forward to reading more.

Beautifully visceral....

I...wow. Firstly, this one ticks all the boxes for me. I've never read fiction regarding sirens and especially have never read one from THEIR point of view. I have to say it secretly thrilled me (well, not so secretly if it's part of my review, right?) how they seem to take a very unapologetic attitude towards tearing humans to pieces and savoring the still-bleeding, quivering morsels. I think it speaks volumes on how humans justify taking the lives of animals, fish, etc. and describe their taste, texture, savoriness, etc. in food blogs and online cooking shows. Not that I'm a vegetarian or anything, but when you think about it, it offers a unique perspective on such actions, and to the sirens humans are just another source of nourishment, if not the ultimate one. The language you use is darkly beautiful and very visceral, not solely because of the descriptions of the various flavors and attributes of the human body as food, but because it evokes a sort of dichotomous sense of connectedness: eat/kill to live, the sirens are part of a much larger system of which humans play a role (and are NOT the top of the food chain), and of what it's like to be the ultimate predator that most people don't believe exists or are even aware of. Definitely food for thought.

Oooh, the suspense!

When I first read your description, I thought: "Having a student take a romantic interest in you their teacher is in and of itself frightening,' but I must say I'm thoroughly enjoying the direction this story is headed. Unfortunately there are students like Axel out there, and when you were describing the things he would say and do to Miss Shaw, I could literally feel myself break out in hives. The fact that she did not report it and let things escalate is not only career suicide (ah, the ignorance and naive optimism of first year teachers) and would be a PR scandal for the school of the worst kind. Draven is a sympathetic character, and while (at first) I was tempted to think his feelings for Miss Shaw were straight out of the movie "Fear," I was pleased to see the mystical elements (especially Egyptian which I love) come into play in a manner that made sense and make for endless possibilities in terms of future chapters. In short, I REALLY have enjoyed reading this and you deserve top marks for an original story line.

Definitely intriguing

Hmm. I really am very curious as to what exactly Greenery did to become such a social pariah. I mean she did a complete 360 in appearance and personality in such a short amount of time that something terrible had to have happened. I get the sense that yes, she desperately wants to fit in and be desired...perhaps a little too much and things got out of hand with Bash. I like how the perspective changes from past to present and we get very different viewpoints of her life/struggles in public and in private. As the title hints, this is most likely what psychosis feels or seems like. Overall, I like what I've read and I'd love to see more chapters posted in the future.

Short but spooky

This was rather interesting. It appears that the manor is collecting people/their souls, but for what purpose? I would have like to have seen that developed more,. The cliffhanger could certainly lead to more chapters, but even as it is, this story ended on a suspenseful note. You use great imagery in describing the setting and the manor itself, so kudos there! I could almost envision it and it reminded me somewhat of "The Others" and "The Haunting" (the 1960s one, not the remake). Having lost a spouse would create a very stressful environment, and it would be fair to say that (a) either they are imagining something is after them, or (b) something like a poltergeist (or a manifestation of evil in this case) would be drawn to this particular woman. The first chapter was an instant attention-grabber and it appears that you either did some research or at the very least are well-educated yourself based on your writing style. Overall, I really enjoyed reading this.

Fun and Sweet

I really enjoyed reading this and look forward to checking out the others in the series. As a lifetime fan of vampire fiction, this one had some strong points going for it in terms of originality. Case in point: once the bond is formed between a vampire and their beloved, the touch of any other man (however mundane or unintentional) causes discomfort and pain because their body craves the touch of their mate and therefore rejects the touch of another until the bond is completely formed. This was a nice touch to a genre that--let's face it--has its fair share of tropes and/or stereotypes that sometimes border on the ridiculous or predictable.. The story was overall fun and at times sweet. Great job and I will definitely be reading the others you've written.
