I love the range of expressions here. That’s some delightful contrast. I also think the dynamics of the hair getting blown around is delicious! The best part, though? The flowy, word-infused magicy stuff! Mmmm.
Anyway people complaining about romance, Mr. Sejic is pretty capable of handling this. I do not think one bit he'll make this some whiny teen romance. Like he stated in the interview he wanted to make this a believable fantasy with believable characters, it's not all romance. I bet it has plenty of other things such as action, adventure, and rich storytelling. So get over there being some romance, life is life, you can't change it.
So thank you, sir for releasing your amazing works and you definitely have a paying customer right here on February 13th, 2013.
