Finished reading it, and as predicted, I am impressed
. I am convinced that Morten Stroms is one of the children of the Emperor, I can't remember the official term for them, but I know they are also being hunted by the Inquisition so it kind of makes sense
. I have to say, you really did well on your characters, I found myself liking them all, each of them have their own little quirks and personalities that really emphasize who they are. I think Inquisitor Martinez and Stroms are my favorites so far.
You didn't take too long to get your plot kick-started either, which, I confess, is sometimes a pitfall of mine
. When the characters are introduced, their stakes in the story are already made clear and it meshes together into an interesting, and, so-far, interesting and suspenseful plot.
Really like what you're doing here, Brother Edmund, keep it up!
