Exciting opening chapter!
Read the story now
This is great! Wasn't too sure what to expect when I started reading, but you set the scene well, including some beautiful descriptive writing that created a wonderful atmosphere:
"A violin played somewhere far off, accompanied by the gentle lapping along the port docks."
You quickly got into the action, which is really important for hooking your readers, and I felt real panic and concern when Lucy was captured. Then as suddenly as it started, she was rescued by this thrilling stranger... and so the story begins!
Great characterisation of Lucy and Natsu, instant chemistry and mystery... I haven't read the whole novel yet but what I've read so far has captured my attention and I'm very happy to give this a 5-star review.
Best of luck with it!
