What is going on??
That’s the question I found myself asking within minutes of starting “See the Light” by @jcwhisper.writes…and not in a bad way by any means. JC’s story opens with our MC, Raven, in what appears to be an alternate dimension. It’s almost like the world she knows, but with less people…and not all of them have faces. No one seems to know who she is and there’s no sign she ever existed.
JC uses figurative language paired with a formal writing style that makes this story hard to put down. While I did notice a couple typos, on the whole it’s a masterpiece. Check out the screenshot below to see what I mean.
JC’s story hosts a wide range of characters rather than just focusing on the MC and her LI. This is something that I look for in stories. I mean let’s face it. We all have other people in our lives besides our SO (if we even have one). A good story needs to have well-rounded characters that help to drive the plot.
One thing I noticed is that the chapters are fairly short. This can be a good or a bad thing depending on what kind of reader you are. Personally, I like to have a nice long chapter, especially when I’m spending tickets. However, I can also see the benefit in being able to get through chapters quickly.
I also am seriously dying for more interaction with a LO. While it seems there are a few potentials, there hasn’t been any action in the romance sense by the end of chapter 4. Although, I do respect JC’s creative decision in this area. I like love stories to develop slowly so they’re more realistic. It’s something I do in my own writing as well, but often in Episodes we get into a romance so quickly that I guess I’m a bit spoiled.
All in all a great read and I highly recommend you check it out. You can find a link to it on JC’s Instagram which you can find by using the link below. Be sure to give her a like and subscribe if you enjoyed her story as much as I did. Happy reading!
