Love the James Earl Jones reference! It was fun reading in his voice :D
Interesting twist, I was wondering which road Lane would take when the group split.
Can't wait for more, keep up the awesome writing.

Oh wow! Congratulations for finishing the first book! :)
And once again you have amazed me at how you're able to work Lane into LOTR as a tenth walker and yet GIVE HER HER OWN STORY!
No one on LOTR fan fiction has done it quite like you :) It's quite an original plot to work into the story and I love it.
AND I JUST LOVE THAT TIME AND TIME AGAIN YOU PULL THROUGH AND GIVE HER HER OWN STORY3333 :'D YAY!

Hello! I feel like I should go back the first part and review on it, but I feel like all I'd do each chapter is repeat: "this is amazing!", "this is awesome!" and "I can't wait to read more!"
That said, I have to admit that at first I wasn't really sure I liked Lane. I have no problems with 10th walker or "modern girl in ME" stories. On the contrary, I rather like them. My initial concern with Lane was that she'd turn into a drama queen or become too polarized of a charachter as I've seen so many other stories turn. I also was concerned with the fact that she had a superpower. Yet your writing style intrigued me to keep reading and before I knew it I was checking the site daily for updates of this story alone. Only a few chapters in I realized how utterly unnecessary my concerns were!
Now I find Lane to be intriguing. She has a depth I don't commonly find in fan fictions...and I've been reading on this site for many years now. I can see genuine character development and I find her thought processes logical and reasonable giving her background. Even her 'advantage' is well done: powerful enough for her to find a use yet she's not a goddess that could just magically save middle earth without Frodo. Like a real person, as I read more about Lane, the more I got to know her and like her. I find myself rooting for her, and I genuinely care for the character. To me, that is a mark of a fantastic writer and great storytelling.
Next, I feel I need to briefly address the wonderful twists and turns. I was quite pleased with how you handled the ending of the first piece. It can be difficult I think to address that particular point of the LoTR story: Boromir's fall and the OC's path upon the breaking of the fellowship. Even better, in my humble opinion, was your introduction to this 2nd arc of the story. I thought the way you addressed Lane's impact on the major events in ME was creative and well tailored. I like how you got Lane to Edoras and I can't wait to read how she does until the reunion with the fabulous foursome.
Oh, and James Earl Jones? Priceless.
I suppose this is getting rather long winded. In actuality this has just become a really long way of saying "I adore your work! Please keep it going!" I just felt that the caliber of work you're providing deserves more than a quick "it's awesome, loved it. Please update soon."
