I never know to say in these things. I guess that says something about me. I read a lot, write stories, and like books. I like a good debate. Nothing else is to say. :-)
I am really enjoying the slow build of the relationship between Steris and Wax. I love a slow build. I appreciate a relationship more when I can witness how the relationship between the two characters grew, and understand why they become close. Steris at first introduction came across and clod and brittle....but as you get to know her character through Wax...you realize that that is just the surface. And that outer wall hides a whole wealth of surprises and awkwardness. The way this relationship is being build...the reader falls for Steris along with out hero...and that is what is going on here...even if Wax doesn't see it yet.
Oh yeah...action! magic! Guns!..blah blah.
