    Chapter One

    It's your prerogative, but it won't grow on me.

    We'll see. I bet I'm right though and I only bet on sure things.

    Chapter 18

    Desmond has latched onto Jason's advice a little too closely. Everyone isn't the same and it can be and usually is bad to follow a mentor's lead too stringently. This precept about unnecessary attachments has some merits, but being alone for the rest or most of your life is a depressing and lonely path. So Jason was the one to introduce Desmond to the pleasures of having a same sex sexual partner. The flashbacks in this chapter are a little confusing and it's not too clear at what point each happened.

    Chapter 20

    Styx resisted Veil's will and since Neredos is in a moment of clarity, he knew what Veil had sent Styx to do. Thank goodness Neredos chose to divide his attention rather than kill Styx. Krythe turned out to be an opportunistic bastard. I doubt he anticipated Max having all this help. I'm betting on the side with the golem and Elroks. As we've seen, Madame Godani is no slouch in a battle either. The only one still out of place is Styx. If the Everbright City is supported by anti-gravity units, why would it crash into Pentalus when the demon pillars are gone? The only reason would be if Neredos is going to destroy the system keeping the city afloat. He's the only one who knows how it works.
  5. Charlemagne and Mason are like acid and gasoline. It's a combination you don't want to mix together. I'm not sure Charlie could stand up to Mason in a one on one battle if it was put to the test. He seems very skilled with his scribe. How did the hunters find Shiloh so quickly? Is there a spy?
  6. Shiloh... it means 'gift.' Thank you for this gift, Comsie! This promises to be a very interesting story.

    Chapter One

    You suddenly changed the name of the town which also changed the name of the story. I liked the other one better. This sounds like kid's cereal.

    I doubt he has one. Remember, he was at home eating and making an effort to read a book when he got the call. Unless he had been with someone just before, he's out of luck.

    Chapter 17

    The big problems i have with Sam's present are it's parked outside his apartment, his fingerprints are on the back door handle and tarp, and he didn't report it when he found it. He's likely his father's heir and there are probably other who know they weren't on the best of terms. These could present some issues for him. Other than this concern, Sam may find a bit more peace. Desmond and Gabriel make a good pair. Gabriel might be the only mate Desmond could choose who isn't helpless enough to worry about and will never be repulsed by his work.. And the sex is epic.

    Chapter 16

    Gabriel is as taken with Desmond as Desmond is taken with him. I thought Gabriel might have known more about what was going on with Sam, but it was more educated guesses. He must have been close friends with Sam at some point. The fatty sleaze was thinking too much with his perverse libido and fell right into the trap. If Desmond took an hour and a half to work on him, his last time on earth was extremely unpleasant. I'm sure Sam will be happy. Now on to bigger and better things.
  11. The mold has been unnatural from the first time it was described. I have to wonder if this abnormally large squirrel is still alive or is it merely animated and controlled by the mold. How did it get inside? Charles is clearly bothered by the mold. It's very odd for his insatiable curiosity to completely avoid investigating it. He was also disturbed by the servant's nightmares as if they mirrored his own. Something occurred to me. Don't read it unless you must.

    Chapter 19

    Neredos has his magical implements to protect him, but he is no longer immortal and he is also mad. He doesn't trust Styx, but he also likely discounts a mere boy can actually hurt him. History has taught us that mere boys can do surprising things. Davis slew Goliath with a rock from his sling and one young Serbian started World War I. From small acorns giant oaks grow. This was never a decision of any 'they.' It was all Neredos alone. Neredos could have killed the demons at any time and all of them at once, but he chose to harness their power because he thought he could make the world a better place. He realizes now he was wrong.
  13. You find yourself in an absolutely inescapable trap of having to participate in the most horrific acts possible. There is no out. The phrase 'I was only following orders' comes to mind. Gordon might have his own hidden agenda to deal with his work. His comment "for now" indicates something may change. He makes notes. What is he recording? My only question is why would anyone armed with a laser that cuts through flesh and bone like butter reach for a gun to stop a terminal threat? Even vampires can't do anything to you when sliced into two halves.

    Chapter 19

    It's not a demon, but Max's golem. As long as Max has the gauntlet, he has a nearly unbeatable warrior. We also have a clue about defeating the demons in the mosaic and from what we already know. They can be defeated by the elements. Naxthul used Water. I think Neredos is planning to destroy the Everbright City because he wants none of the technology to survive him. He is the only one left who understands it and he views it as a corrupting influence. Perhaps the destruct will also destroy the demons in the pillars, but what if Styx kills him first and the demons are simply released?
