Yes- this is it! Claire's adventure beginning! Love it.
Author's Response: Yes, this is the moment! Thank you so much, Ziggy.
Your great gift in description and scene setting is so evident here- I can just FEEL Edinburgh!
As the train slowed down, it pulled past Georgian town houses and glowering stony hill. Sunlight bounced off the rugged crags. Beams of gold lit the slate-grey spears of volcanic rock, and scrubby grass tufts clung defiantly to the railway's edge. The sky was the kind of streaky grey-blue that promised sunshine and delivered rain.
Author's Response: Thank you! I love Edinburgh so much, even when it's cold and the weather is rubbish!
Love this gang- the dynamic between them is great.
Author's Response: Thank you so much, Ziggy. I'm very fond of them too, I was sad to finish Paradox but I can't quite let go of them.
