This is ....very disturbing.

I really liked it. It was vivid and moving and surprising. But I wish she'd figured out a way for Rose to take Keith along on this adventure to be.

This also feels like a story that wants to become a fantasy novel to me.

Oh wow. That was really amazing. I love the method of telling this story. And I really want more. I want the adventure to find the daughter, and the adventure after.

I wanted a little more plot. I'm not sure it goes far enough.

It's tantalizing, that's for sure. I think I know what I'm bringing to my next Storyreading.

We passed Peak Vampire a year ago and Fairies are now the tragic antiheros of our collective unconscious. Watch this space.
