I stayed up all night to read this the other day because wow it was the most amazing fic i have ever read, and you are such a talented writer! The plot was riveting and the characterization was so spot on. I was wondering if the alternative ending was still available? I'd like to read it if it is, but it's been so long since this was posted, I don't know if you're even active here anymore lol
Anyways, thank you so much for putting so much effort into this fantastic fic!

God that ending! I can't wipe the smile off of my face, I just love Anakin and Obi-Wan's friendship, and Lorne was hilarious.
So this is the second time I read this (I apologise for spamming you story with reviews but I just had to tell you how much I love them!), I read it for the first time a couple of years back staying up far too long in the middle of the night. I've done the same thing now but I can't help myself it is such a wonderful story. There is so much I love about it; the angst, the drama and the action. The action is brilliant! It never gets boring, not once and you certaintly have a knack for writing action scenes, as the reader I can visualise if it was playing out right in front of me.
I love this story and all the characters in it especially Anakin, I think you did a wonderful job with him and his path to redemption. I envy your talent of being able to stay true to the movies and of continuing the story.
I have read Gehenna, it is number one of my favourite books (and I've read a lot of books). It is simply an amazing book, and the way describe the cities and create the setting is just mindblowing. I wish that I could have a ounce of your talent when it comes to writing. I am looking forward to read more of your work, are you planning another book?
Thank you for such an amazing Star Wars fanfic!

Oh, by the Force! This was, and still is, such an amazing story, HelenT! I had finished reading it on my phone once, and I loved it so much! I just couldn't forget this story, and now I'm here again starting a reread! xD THIS STORY IS AMAZING AND I LOVE IT SO MUCH!

Yay! So much fun. A real Anakin/Vader-redemption fic where he has to come to terms with his own past in a completely different setting and a chance to be reunited with Padme! Loved that Obi-Wan kept dropping in to cryptically help. And Lorne. Lorne is just great. He made a nice addition to the cast. Thank you writing a story so wonderful I kept reading instead of doing other, arguably more productive activities (like eating dinner).
Also, the ending was perfect.

Loved this story! It's one of the best stories I've ever read in this site. Your writing style is amazing and the way you wrote the characters was really good. The action scenes are very well written also. You should write more Anakin/ Padme stories or more Star Wars in general. Thank you for sharing this wonderful piece!
I was wondering if the alternative epilogue it's still available?

This was an amazing story! The plot and the action scenes were all very well done.
You are an awesome writer and I wish you'd write more Anakin/Padme fanfics.
| Vivss chapter 20 . 1/2/2014
Great resolution to this story! It is as if accepting Padme's death Anakin's saga comes full circle, cuz his inability to deal with it was what caused his downfall in the first place.
| Vivss chapter 9 . 12/31/2013
You write the action scenes pretty well!
I love to have Ceetee here since I miss Artoo.
| Vi-Violence chapter 21 . 12/19/2013
Very nice, though I would have expected just a bit more conversation about Luke and Leia.
| SoapOperaNinjaBooty chapter 21 . 12/15/2013
I was so not ready for this story to come to an end, that I read the reviews to prolong the joy. After 500 reviews I don't know what's left to say except that you have a new number one fan here!
...and that it bears repeating that this story was thrilling from beginning to end.
...Oh, and I fully enjoyed your characterization of a wiser and maturer Anakin who's capable of making the better choice.
This is such a deliciously satisfying resolution to a mythically tragic story. Thank you!
As I find I'm still not ready to let go, can you forward the alternate epilogue, if it's still available? It's Christmas! :)

That was a very well writen story, with a very solid plot and a wonderful characterization. Thanks a lot for your work,your story is one of the best stories that I had the pleasure to read on . You are very talented.
| Evarne chapter 21 . 7/8/2013
Excelent story, I liked it a lot.
| Idriss chapter 19 . 7/3/2013
This story is impressive, I love it.
What happens to the Narzgh that die? that's something I keep wondering since Anakin killed the first one. I hope you mention it at some point.
To be honest, Padme is kinda geeting on my nerves. It's just... what's she thinking? Go find Sidious before Anakin gets there and then what? Get killed or more likely used as leverage against him? I mean, it's idiotic. She wants to help but she keeps getting in the way and making things worse, like with Maul. And you don't have to be a genius to know that with Sidious, Anakin and a Padme in danger on the same stage, Vader's return is almost a certainty. She's so not helping.
Sorry for the rant. I've never been a big fan of this character and here I simply have this impresion that everything would go smoothly if she just weren't there (like Anakin fights Maul/Dooku no problem until he senses her nearby, gets distracted and almost killed. Both times).
Anyway, great fanfic.
PS. Lorne is fantastic and it's funny when he makes all those references.
