it was amazing

I enjoyed being led through the story, paragraph by paragraph...the author certainly has a skill with imagery. Personally, I don't really dig it if/when a writer starts to get a little (or not) bit "over the top" with descriptions--"and she was filled with an inner darkness, black and dark as an oil slick" (from a recently published YA novel--won't say which!)--Mr. Speicher's descriptions are more lyrical. He has an understanding of what good poetry is (most Poe fans do, while those who detest Poe usually don't--c'mon, Edgar Allan Poe's THE MAN, admit it *insert smiley face*).

P.S. Visually (if this were to be translated onto a screen), it could potentially be something very "eerily other-worldly" to view/experience (and I don't mean "other-worldly" in the paranormal-creatures sense--this is something greater/that covers more scope than a genre category).
