I loved it. An amazing start. Obviously I can't wait to find out about these books, but "the man in the black coat" is giving me the creeps and therefore making me wonder...
I absolutely love an introduction that's not...introductory. You started this out by leaving open a million windows and doors for possibility, rather than expaining who, what, when, where, and why. That's refreshing. I can't wait for more!
I think this is a positively fantastic start to the story. I'm completely intrigued, which is exactly what you want in a reader, I'm sure! :) I want to know what those books are, and more importantly, WHO IS THIS 'SERVANT'?
I will be watching this story eagerly, Fatima, and will leave more detailed critiques as the story continues, but for now all I can say is great start!
