"oh that is SOOO lovely. I actually cried. You definitely did the myth justice with this one. Nicely written from start to finish."
"*clapping at my computer screen* ... I loved this story. I love how you weaved the myth into modern time with the strength of one woman - this is amazing. Again, great detail... Loved it - excellent!"
"I am ready for this author to write the book! I enjoyed this twist on the myth of Pandora's Box and look forward to reading more from this author. I like when there is a modern twist to myths or histories that we have believed for so long and this story delivered. I thought the story was well written."

"This is an excellent story...was riveted from beginning to end. You managed to convey the horror of the abuse nicely without giving us all the gory details. Sometimes things are best left to the imagination."
"oh - that one was seriously visceral...I almost put my hand up to the screen to stop it..so engrossed I was in the tension, the plot and the action you conveyed. It seemed altogether too real. This one reads professionally. Tightly and tensely written....awesome descriptions, and my heart was in my mouth....and then the ending. sheesh."
