I'm all caught up now; good stuff, EldritchSandwich! Sorcha - rawr! Ruff Ethereal provided critique far more eloquently than I could . I pretty much agree with everything he said. When I read the first chapter of this story, I thought it was something of a stand-alone piece. I'm really digging how that was merely the surface and you've clearly put a lot of thought into the background of your story, and that of your characters.
