This definitely sounds interesting. I'd at least give it a chance, though the grammar mistakes sounds like an easy fix that an editor could solve and I'd be a little annoyed by that.

Ooh, color me intrigued. I’m going to have to check this one out. It sounds like it has a lot of promise. I like that it has such a unique world based on being in the shadow of the larger planet. I’m curious about how it works out as the world enters the sun.

This story seems quite appealing. Your review made me curious about why Lulu considers that she and her people "deserve" darkness, and why and who wanted to kill the doyen. It seems there's a little bit of everything I like, suspense, intrigue and romance. I'll put this one on my 'to read' list. Thanks for this wonderful review!

I love to read suspense and this one seems to be one I need to add to my list. The idea of not having daylight seems like it may be a book based on dread and depression. The review actually made this book sound very intriguing so it will go on the list and be read soon. Thanks for the review!

The author paints a landscape similar to what some may imagine purgatory or even hell to be. The outlandish plot development sounds quite interesting to me. Life can never be boring with books like these to read. Thanks for a fantastic review.

Wow! Now that you mention it, I think something about the initial setting of this story could be rather purgatory-esque. :D

First I have heard about of its kind! A book about a world covered by darkness surely must be a book without a lot of cliché! Sounds like a must read. Fascinating that the Arthur decides to spice things up with a warrior.
