I love this story and how well it portrays both canon characters and OCs.  I also like the descriptions of the political situation in Rohan at the time and how every moment of the story is so fraught with tension.

The only thing I don't like is all those cliffhanger chapter endings!

Roh_wyn -Thank you so much! I'm really fairly awful at politics, so I'm pleased to hear that the vagueness there is working! :)

I wish I could say I'm sorry about the cliffhangers, but I'm mostly not. It's what keeps me going from one to the next, having a big plot point to pick up!

Thanks again,

Edoraslass

Eddie - this is an incredible story you have going!  I check back so often to see if you've updated...and every time you do I bite my fingernails because I know it's going to be another good one.  Every chapter you answer previous questions while creating new ones...you leave your readers stunned!

Wonderful Job!

This is a wonderful story, with very believable characters and a nicely twisted plot. Gríma's fun to write, he is such a resourceful villain! Thank you for a great read!
