I think this shouldn't be a short story because the idea was just way too vast to be written in a short narrative. And there was no proper introduction to their world. Some important parts were left vague. Like, what the Scourge War was. No backgrounds were given. No explanations. Nothing at all. Things just happened so fast. And also, there were too many mythical creatures presented in this very short story. There were vampires, trolls, goblins, elves, faeries, witches, sorcerers, dragons, and it was also mentioned that there was a church, so probably there were humans. And the word 'greek goddess' was also presented. I don't know how all these characters interact with each other or did the humans know that those creatures existed in their world? I have so many questions. And still, here I am left in the dark. Wandering.
Echo Ishii created such a big beautiful world. Yet haven't explored it very well. Instead, she just focused only on the two protagonists. Though, Claude and Daniel were interesting characters. They started denying their feelings for each other but their actions spoke louder than their voices. I am really looking forward to see more of them with the dragon. That would be cool.
This was actually a very good story with some problems with it. But, still a good one.
