I don't know about what other readers think regarding this story,
since this seems to be a new topic, but this one tale has got me hooked.
There is all this suspense, and it is coiled like a tightly-wound spring.
Kudos to London Lampy for dropping us into this strangely familiar,
cruel, other world. Poor Sam!

Now that it's finished, I'll miss this story. It surely kept me in suspense for the last few chapters while Sam
endured his imprisonment. I'm happy that it ended well, but I will miss it now that it's done. Thank you
London Lampy for the absorbing tale.

This is an excellent story, well-constructed, well-written, and with plenty of originality and invention. I started reading it yesterday afternoon and went on to Chapter 23 in one session, breaking only to attend to visitors. Today, I finished the rest of the story in one more session. Few stories have been able to engage and entertain me like that.

Anyway, I definitely recommend it.
