I was quite enchanted by this little tale. The main character comes across as mercurial, tragic, and just a little bit sinister. One thing that leaps out about this tale is the atmosphere. I found myself lost in the moodiness and emotions in this story.
There are several twists which you won't see coming, but are effectively executed and enrich the story. I was struck by the imagery and complete submergence near the end of the tale. The author was to create scenes that will stay with you for a long time. I wouldn't be surprised if this generated some pretty cool fan art. Definitely check this little gem out!
