There's still lots of work to be done.
There are definite things to improve upon, lots of changes to make, but there were several positive comments about tension buildup, my convincing dialog, connecting with certain characters over others, and how I made the reviewer hold her breath between certain chapters. She was very detailed, pages-worth of feedback, and she gave great advice for consideration. She was clear and concise. I felt as if she really "got" the story.
I was nervous about her feedback, expecting plot holes and maybe mixing up lore with present day facts and characters (there's a lot of history), but there was none of that. I was so relieved. Anything else, to me, is cake.
So, the saga continues....
