| another guest chapter 27 . 7/7
Hello! I'm not sure if you still read these, but I just waned to let you know that this story is absolutely amazing. I come back and reread it whenever I'm feeling down. I must have read it at least 30 times by now, and I figured I should let you know how much I love it. It's been almost 3 years since you've updated, and I dearly hope that you will continue the story after such a cliffhanger (literally), but as an author myself I know how hard it can be, so I understand if you don't. Anyway, I hope to hear from you soon, and I hope you have a stellar rest of your day. Thank you!

I like the story but to be honest the dialogue sounds a bit stiff. Most of the characters use 'will not' instead of won't or put in an extra word that isn't necessary. It makes them sound like robots. If someone was in a difficult situation I would think they would try to get their point across as quickly as possible, not give more time for their enemy to behead them.
Also I know Christiana is a princess and so would talk...crisper I think the word is? But characters like Will and Halt, I think , would have a more casual way of speaking. For example Will says 'I really did not expect him to spill his guts to you anyway'. The 'I really did not' made it sound tight and almost pompous but then if changes to the almost slang of ' spill his guts' making him sound just weird with and extra 'anyway' thrown in there for no good reason.
You also tend to do that in your writing, adding an extra word here or there that isn't really needed. When Watharen took out his sword you described it as 'Watharen's large battle sword', unless we were unsure which of Watharen's swords it was, there was no need for the 'large', it would have been fine as just battle sword.
I think you should practice using shortened words like don't or wouldn't because while 'will not' might sounds fine the first time, after a few times it will just get annoying.
Christiana feels a little unrealistic so far. Brave, smart, skilled, sharp-wit, honest(apart from her gender) and all-around trust worthy. But so far doesn't really have any major flaws. So far I feel any mistakes she's made are due to circumstances being against her or because she cares too much. Maybe a slight bit of temper here and there. Not exactly damning qualities are they?
I don't think your story is cliche at all. Yes It has a band of thief's and a princess probably soon to be ranger (really need to work on those mysteries) but apart from that it is interesting, especially Christiana's past.
So to summarise, shorten words to a more casual way of speaking, take out extra words and maybe give Christiana one or two more things to worry about. This is of course only my opinion and you can ignore, use it or throw rotten fruit at my review as much as you want. I really don't want to offend you but I am trying to be as honest as possible.
And I really hope you keep writing, it's hard to find good stories.
