I made it to about chapter 9 before I skipped ahead to see if the story was done. This is not, as the recommendation claims, written on a professional level. For one thing, in the beginning chapters at least, the author doesn't seem aware of the difference between "their" and "there." In addition, there is too much use of the passive voice. The sentence structure at times is also awkward. An interesting concept, to be sure, and maybe I'll eventually finish the fic. But for now, the writing is simply too much of a turn-off.
Repeating the sentiment that this is one of the best fanfictions I have ever read. I HIGHLY recommend it to any Keladry fans.
Okay, perhaps the plot of this story is amazing. I wouldn't know—I simply couldn't get past the terrible writing. Way too much passive voice and "as you know, bob" dialogue and telling language meant I couldn't get into the story at all. The prologue was intriguing, but the chapters that followed made me quickly give up. And I skipped around enough to know that the writing quality never gets better. Perhaps worth a read if you can get past this sort of thing, but I can't.
Fallen - incredible protector of the small fanfic
Fallen is definitely among the best fanfiction I have ever read. It is (in my opinion) better than the original series. Kel and Alex are both very intesting characters and Kel's heroism and bravery seem far more real and far more impressive, since she is fighting for the future of a nation rather than against petty bullies. The writing is excellent, the characters very deep and the plot compelling.
