That's awesome, girl! I like the imagery - you're really good at using descriptions to carry yourself through some of the more daunting scenes where it would be really easy to get bogged down with dialogue. Marvelous job.

Finally, some originality.
I'm a big fan of Underworld (and more specifically Selene) but I hardly ever read any fics in this section for the simple fact that they're all the same. The dynamics are the same. The premises are the same. And Michael is boring (what?). I won't pretend, your premise is essentially the same as the movies, you have the cold, detached vampire alongside a more human element. But the way you've visualized and characterized Selene through your character's eyes makes it interesting – makes her more sympathetic.
There was always a bit of comfort, a lack of development to the characters in the movies (IMO), and it's nice to see an unfolding of things here.
You have a touch with words:
* “What's it like?” he asks.
“It's death. You understand that, don't you? You lay down each night knowing that you don't desire sleep. You eat each meal knowing that you feel no hunger. Blood is the only sustenance, Alyn. I need no blood, but I don't know what will happen if I turn you. You will desire companionship, but want nothing more than to be alone. It's misery, depression, hatred.” *
That sums things up accurately; very evocative and poetic. It makes you pause and think about the dichotomy of the concepts, and makes sense after.
Alyn – your character – is interesting. To this point his motivations are believable, even his affection for Selene. I'd like to know a little bit more about how he got to where he is though. I'd like to get a better sense (however briefly) of the entanglements he left behind, a slightly greater feeling that he existed before he found her. I hope that makes sense.
Selene is at once deadly and vulnerable. At the end of this chapter, where you described her demeanor and mood, right before she asked him if he'd stay, you did a good job and got the effect I presume you were aiming for. Good job.
I'm not saying this is perfect or the best fic I've ever read. It's pretty good though and if I may say, can get better – that's all.
Anyway, solid story. The premise is interesting and the characterization so far compelling. I'm looking forward to chapter five (and no, I don't usually write reviews the size of short prologues).

You don't accept anonymous reviews. So I made an account, just for you. )
And what do you mean, you aren't that great of a writer? That looks like some definitely good writing to me, babe. You'll have to fill me in on back story, though, because I think I'm missing out on something important by not having seen Underworld II.
Keep it up!

Hey, don't worry about it. I think it's good and a lot of writers don't like their stuff, including me, but other people are all "Whoa! This is the best crap I've ever seen!" And you're like really, I thought I could done better.
I also liked Selene's explantion for keeping Alyn along. It was so blunt, yet still aloof...if that makes sense. Good work though and can't wait for the next one.
