I really loved this one.
It's an excellent long visual novel with lot of branches, some heavy (but logical) twists, a chance to shape the character's morality (and "win" as either good or evil, yay! ;-)) plus a self-sustained female in the main role, which is a very talented sorceress on top of it. This hit almost all of my (personal) preferences so well I simply had to love it and thanks again for making it! The characters are likebale and romance was quite touching at many places (especially Xander and the finale!) and it was really enjoyable to live it through.
However I do have few reservations to the text, which I will list here. Please take it more as suggestions for improvement than criticism, because I really love this product and if I wouldn't I wouldn't even bother to write anything in the first place. :-) It is no doubt one of the best VNs I played (and there is very few to my taste):
- Grammar and typos. I'm not from UK/US and my English is far from flawless but some mistakes were so severe that even I was disturbed by them or they even made it hard to understand the sentence's meaning. One for all: "She's nothing I can handle" - was an option at one point which in fact meant "She's nothing I _cannot_ handle".
- Give the reader a bit of credit in regard of his/her intelligence, it will make the story even more likebale and touching. Quite often there were lines like "I didn't have to look who it was. I already knew. It was Xander." Or something like that, where from the story even the reader knew it had to be him and the next paragraph would confirm it anyway. In this case, simply scratch that "It was Xander." and leave it hanging in the air instead. It's much more novel-like.
- Lastly... I know this may be hard to implement in a VN with four love-interests and so much freedom in choices but sometimes I felt the novel keeps all options open for too long. Like it was already quite clear from the previous choices who Aria loves or hates and yet she still pondered "romance" even with the character she already made clear to dislike or doubted her interest in the one she was already very close to. And the same was valid for their reactions towards her.
