Quite the intriguing first few chapters you have here, and I'm curious to see how all this plays out...

Wow, this is a very powerful story so far. The prologue had me hooked (what a fabulous last line!) and these first few chapters are really intriguing. Update soon, please!

Of course there are thousands of stories out there, and I have only read a fraction of them. NOT intended to be a scientific survey! My picks of stories that I feel are particularly well written, stylistically interesting, lyrical... Regardless of era, topic or character.
Included because: A really original idea with well drawn OCs and scenes, finely done straightforward prose in a style that is altogether modern but steeped in the otherworldliness of Mddle Earth.
