Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1-The Call Reviewer: ttbenanza Signed
Well, so far she kind of seems a bit Mary-sueish. Just telling you that so maybe you can make her less so in future chapters. I haven't read the second chapter yet, so I can't be sure if she is a Mary-sue or not yet...
Also, I understand this was a Prologue of sorts, but try to make the chapters longer so the reader can get more of a feel for where the story is going as well as the characters in it. :)

Author's Response: I very much appreciate the review! I have tried to increase the length of the chapters and give more of a taste of the characters and their relationships. Please feel free to let me know what you would like to see as the story progresses.

Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1 part 1 Reviewer: ttbenanza Signed
Well, there are a lot of errors with your sentence structure, and a lot of punctuation and grammar errors in this as well. It is not entirely bad for the first chapter but...she does seem a bit Mary-sueish in that she's just randomly walking down a road and comes upon Glorfindel who takes her for a ride on his white horse into the sunset...
Tell us more about this character, and maybe get a beta reader for those sentence structure errors
Ex: "Two hours later I take a break and sit down next to the road to eat. Yesterday I had found some red berries. Some birds were eating them so I decided that they probably weren't poisonous. I have collected enough to last me a few days, my trouser pockets are full of them. Looking up I check the position of the sun, it is just barely touching the mountaintops in the distance. I get back on the road and continue walking. An hour later the sky clears and the sun starts to shine." This Paragraph was very stilted, so try working on the flow of your sentences using connecting words.
Ex: "The rest of the body is also protesting it doesn't like fast movements at the moment." There should be an 'as' or something similar between 'protesting' and 'it doesn't'
Ok, those are just some tips, hope it helps.

Author's Response: Thanks for your review. I know I need a beta reader but so far I haven't found someone who wants to do it for me. And believe me she won't be a Mary-Sue at least I don't intend for her to be. Would you tell me after I have uploaded the next two parts of chapter one if you still think she is a bit Mary-sueish? Thanks I appreciate your tips and I hope you give more in the future.
