This is an incredible work of art! Its amazing! You are a truly talented author!
I both loved and hated this story while reading it.
I loved how long it was, like a book, instead of some short story like most things are on here.
I loved your attention to detail, and your incredible talent for flushing out characters, both cannon and OC.
I hated the pansy ass Riddick. Im sure that was your point, but UGH! I wanted to cry most of the time reading our hero as some sort of pussy loser. Well done.
I would have paid you money to hit Shella or whatever her name was with the frying pan of death. Seriously.
I loved the ending of Riddick standing out in front of the ship yelling for Jack. LOVED that.
I loved all of your flash backs into Riddick/Jack/Holy Mans past. The sort of mashed up family they made was so sweet, and a nice pick me up after reading too much 'Rick' *gag. lol
I could go on and on...but needless to say, this is a definate favorite of mine. Kudos to you, and I cant wait to start reading your sequel. Ive noticed you havent undated it in a while, Im hoping youll find the time to get back to it soon. Authors like you are a pleasure to follow on here!

Well... it's been a wild ride. I read your whole story in 2 days and since it is over 4 years old I didn't feel the need to write a review on each chapter but since I've come to the end I feel compelled to write.
Throughout the whole story I was very disheartened by the state Riddick was in by Shella. I wasn't prepared for him to be so 'whipped' and then it just took him so long to snap out of it. I mean I was pining for my Riddick to come to the rescue when it was Dom who sort of saved the day. I just wasn't expecting that. Jack character was spot on in the first half of the story but I feel she lost her edge after she recovered from her date rape drugging. She didn't feel like she had all of her street wiseness with her.
Having said that I loved your twists and turns in the story. I honestly didn't see it coming at the end when Dom didn't really want Riddick but he was bait. Brilliant, really!
I wasn't into the quick and dirty Epilogue1. I feel that whole thing could have been it's own story in it's self. And I don't know why but bring kids into a story really ruins it for me. Don't get me wrong I have kids and they are wonderful but Riddick with kids? Sounds weird.
So I'm off to read the sequel.

I really really, wanted to compliment you on Iman's words of wisdom re: sex in this chapter. That's the most honest and true speech I've seen on the subject in quite a while. People tend to forget that aside from the big obvious consequences of sex, like pregnancy and diseases, there are always the emotional consequences to consider. And those are just as lasting and painful.

Found this story on the Rhiana Griffith Fan Club. When the last chapter they had was 40, I got a little desperate and searched to see if there was more posted anywhere. Boy was I glad I did!
You really had me going right up until the end trying to figure out who Jack would choose. Man did I breathe a sigh of relief. I say it must be the mark of a good writer to get me so worked up about it. I really couldn't tell which way she was going to go. I wasn't sure whether to thank you or curse you profusely for the roller coaster you put us through!
But in the end... Thank you for the wonderful story.

I'm in the process of reading this for the first time and right now I am totally disgusted at how big of a pussy Riddick is. OMG it's so wrong. I'm hoping to read this all today so I'm hoping I won't have to gag myself with his utter wussiness for to much longer. Please let Jack man his ass back up soon

That was an emotional roller coaster ride for me. I was up and down and back around every chapter! Got a little confusing at the end with the introduction of Vale and Kade, but I'm seriously excited about the sequel... I'm sure it's going to be amazing!

| quidditchrox chapter 20 . 9/26/2008
ooh, i like this story, some of the pitch black stories just don't have good enough writers but you are a terrific writer. oh i know i'm way behind, like a couple of years, but shella's been drugging riddick with those sports drinks hasn't she? ohh, such a good story line, especially with conte being like riddick used to be and jack recognising that in him, nice touch

Oh. My. God.
I'm not sure if I should laugh or cry. Okay, right now I'm laughing! God, pink? I was just thinking "PANSYPANSYPANSYPANSY" the whole time... God. God.
WAIT. It must be a clone! A merc trying to trick Jack into... um, turning vegan?
God, I hope so. :D

I'm sorry to say that, but I have to say I don't like this story. It's ridiculous what you made out of Riddick!
