Reviews for A Table in the Presence of My Enemies
skywalker05 chapter 2 . 2/6/2010
Good; I like the idea of " a darker universe", and this certainly is that-Claire's act at the carnival was perfect for her, probably exactly what Samuel would channel her powers into. The prose was a little too formal sometimes- "middle-class white families" sounds like it should be in the census instead of in prose. I also didn't think Samuel would make an aside for a pun. But Claire's characterization was very good; some of her thoughts I could hear in her voice, and I really liked details like the alarm clock that's become so familiar to her. Interesting.

I really like where you are going with this. Everyone is in character. I would love to see what you do with this. I hope you update soon.

Wow, that was an amazing chapter! I especially loved the way snow is described, innocent yet deadly. And the way Claire thinks of herself as a monster... And then suddenly apparantly he is too. Captivating!
