I think you've done a good job. I read part of chapter one. I would read more but I am at school. I will continue to read it. ^.^

I do think you should have something that explains what those creatures look like or maybe some artwork since they're most likely not human.

But I do love it a lot. ^.^ Much better then my story if you ask me.

It absolutely did. Thank you so much for your response. This was the exact type of critique I needed and believe me that it is duly noted.

I'm glad you enjoyed it and I've uploaded the next 4 chapters if you are interested.

Again, thank you for your time reading and reviewing.

Don't just say "Great story!" or "This is awesome!". And don't simply favorite it, either. I want you to pour out your feelings and elaborate. What did you like and dislike? Is there anything that could've been improved, done differently, etc.? Should I change anything? Should I keep anything the same? Did I overlook a detail or two? Be like Roger Ebert and treat me as they do any director, writer, or executive of their choice.

I added a comment! BTW people don't hate your guts, you just have to make an effort to share it with as many people as you can :) Sometimes it takes more than one chapter before people actually start noticing a great story. Keep up the great work!
