Reviews for Faith and the Lockpicks He Carries
Wai-Jing Waraugh chapter 1 . 4/12/2016
Wow, this story had me on the edge of my seat; the build-up of suspense was breath-taking! It felt like I was reading an espionage thriller - which, I suppose, I was! I love the way you depicted George's approach to his new job; it's a bit challenging for him, yet he feels confident enough to let himself get kidnapped and know he can get out of it. I like that even though he is in captivity, he doesn't rely on Alanna to save him; I equally like that Alanna actively searches for him, not waiting around like a typical worried wife!

I do have some small gripes: the opening scene of the couple on their wedding day is sweet, but felt slightly irrelevant, it didn't have much bearing on the rest of the story. Also, Alanna's dispatch of the guards was a bit brutal by her standards, even if she was angry; surely if they were after a larger conspiracy, they would've wanted some of them alive for questioning.
Otherwise, it was a lot of fun to read - I couldn't tear my eyes away until I reached the end and found out that everyone was safe!

This was quite amazing! Romance AND adventure, and it didn't even need to be a superlong drawn out thing either. Your writing made it seem very real, and the ending was just lovely. Great job! I really enjoyed reading this.

May I just say "Oh My GOD!" This is so amazing! I've read all the song of the lioness books as well as the series after and if I didn't know better I wouldn't be able to tell your writing apart from that of Tamora Pierce herself! So wonderfully amazingly awesome! And the characters are exactly as they should be! So much detail and effort! This story is so true to the style of the series that it could be an actual section of the books! It's just WOW! _ wonderful job!

This was amazingly well done! I enjoyed the storyline thorougly: it was original, well-written and very entertaining. I thought your take on the characters in this time period and these situations was spot-on, and it made the storyline feel that much more real and much more fun. Your writing seemed to me impeccable. An excellent story that I very much enjoyed; good job!

This was very cute. I loved it because there simply aren't enough Alanna George fics out there anymore that are very good. Most of the ones I find are Alanna Jon so it's refreshing to see one where she's actually with George.

This is a very, very good story. But you tease by ending it where you do and not giving us the clean up scenes.
