Reviews for Too Long a Sacrifice
Darkover chapter 4 . 9/1/2013
Dear Linda: What a great chapter! A dramatic rescue, just in time! I loved it! This chapter is written most poetically, with great descriptions and even greater drama. As always, I love the way you portray the father-and-son relationship between Aragorn and Faramir, especially as it is such a contrast to the way Denethor treated his younger son. It is a delight to read such well-written stories, because IMO no fan author does a better job than you of writing the friendship between the King and his young Steward. I await the final chapter/epilogue with curiosity, and thank you for giving us this one. Take care. Sincerely, Darkover

Glad to see Fara is rescued and Aragorn has him all fixed up.

Another excellent chapter. I am also enjoying the quotations at the top of the chapters.

What an intriguing development! I am looking forward to seeing this story continued.

Dear Linda: This is a very dramatic chapter! The descriptions are brilliant, and you have certainly ended this chapter on a cliffhanger. Things are quite bleak for Faramir; I can only hope he is rescued, or someone comes to his aid. Will Fikri have the courage to defy his elders? I doubt it, but it is a possibility. You made a wise decision in elaborating on and adding to this story. I'm looking forward to the next chapter! Sincerely, Darkover

Come on! Please update ASAP! This is killing me! (I'm assuming he'll be rescued but still the suspense in this story) I'm kinda hoping that Fikri gets a second chance or something. He seems misguided than anything. I'm liking him...though I want to slap him upside the head!

ARRRRGH UPDATE SOON! This chapter is definitely one of your more realistic characterizations- your Faramir is a very human and relatable character.

Oh goodness, what a cliffie!

Ack! Too short, it needs to be longer so there isn't such an evil cliffhanger! Hurry Aragorn!

Gulp.

Wonderful chapter! I didn't think that an actual pagan sacrifice was in the running. Now things are really getting interesting!
Darkover chapter 2 . 8/21/2013
Dear Linda: Even though I know how this story is going to end, this chapter is still a page-turner! Poor Faramir is in dire straits, and the prospect of being burned alive, after already escaping it once, must seem too terrible to bear. Not to mention the troubling thought, put into his mind by his captors, that his father turned to Sauron before the end. Aragorn is hardly less troubled, wondering what has happened to his Steward, who has become almost as a son to him. It is typical of the King that he would be determined to save Faramir, regardless of the odds or the cost! You have written all this with your usual talent for description and fine dialogue. I eagerly await the next chapter. Thanks for this one. Sincerely, Darkover
