Super quick read lots of errors still.
Interesting story idea, love the girl/boy twins (Emma & Ethan), loved the magical elements. The dialogue needed some work, but it had lots of interesting and unique ideas. I did like that the characters said exactly what I wanted them to sometimes. The downfall for me was the unbalanced detail. There was either too much for not enough. f course there is an opening in the last chapter that has be intrigued. I hope the finished product comes off more polished because this definitely has potential.
