Welcome. I'm afraid I have to echo the sentiments of the prior comment...... Needs much more personal opinion and insight. by Scotlass712
Welcome to Ciao. Apologies for the low rating but this is a full plot synopsis rather than a review. What you'd be looking at doing is giving a glimpse into the plot and characters before going onto your own opinion, rather than giving away most of the plot. You could also do with splitting your paragraphs up to make the review easier on the eye. by Secre
