“Firewatcher” has some serious shit going on! The little teaser blurb had me hooked right away and I loved that it was set in present day Earth as it made it more relatable and easy to get into. I’m certainly impressed. The writing itself could use a little tweaking. I found that the long scenic descriptions, though vivid, actually caused me to be pulled out of the story rather than into it. I felt like it was breaking up the action too much and could have been integrated a little more. As well, the characters and dialogue were a little cliché at times and at this point in the story I had trouble connecting with them. Other than that the writing is really smooth and it’s all round a pretty good read. Can’t wait to see more.
