Now, in Waiting for Appa, Mirtika has restored my faith in 1p PO. It is exactly what it was meant to be, and like I said above, the reader is left longing for more yet without feeling in any way that something was missing until now.
Now, in Waiting for Appa, Mirtika has restored my faith in 1p POV. This story carried none of the oddness I felt reading the other story. The POV was written so skillfully, so seamlessly that the reader is drawn into the mind of the POV character and inextractibly swept along for this fantastically paced story. I anxiously await this author's next work, and I sincerely hope the next one is novel length. I think I am a Mirtika fan for life.
