"Was he truly a demon, or had he been placed in this world just as she had?" Was that foreshadowing I read? I love the coziness in this chapter!

This is good, I look foward to more.

Again it's moving far too quickly - why does Marlene have no qualms about taking other people's souls? Why does she trust Rudolph? Isn't she curious about *what* these souls are used for, who wants them, etc? After all, she really doesn't know anything about her situation, most people would feel like asking afew more questions.

Okay, firstly, what is a soul, and what use would it be to a demon? Secondly, she doesn't seem too lifelike - like when the demon says he wants her soul at first, she says "No. I will not."? A rather composed reply for someone who really has no clue as to who this person is, why they want her soul, etc. Don't you think a better answer would be something like "No way, you crazy bastard!" or "What are you talking about? What's going on? I want to go home!" Or maybe if she was religious, she'd start praying to whoever/whatever she believed in, etc.

Then, she never asked *what* it is that Rudolph wants, if he doesn't want her soul, and why the sudden change of heart - she's awfully trusting, don't you think?

Okay, I think I got it now (I reread chapter 3). (This is about chapter 3, but you can't review the same chapter twice.) The demon turns into a Marlene lookalike and goes back to the future in her place. And he was the one that made the snide remark to her mother and she could hear it.(? *hopefully I got it*) That's very original! Still have the suggestion if you're interested.

Okay, there are a few things in this chapter that I found a little confusing. First, "With a happy nod the demon in Marlene's body waltz right on into the study where a bunch of old breakable things were kept." Does this mean the demon possessed her or that he shapeshifted to look like her?

Second, " 'What are you doing Marlene?' Marlene's mother's voice rose from the living room with her relatives./'Nothing. It's nothing to you!' The demon's eyes glared furiously." Is Marlene hearing her mother's voice or remembering? And is "Nothing" Marlene's answer of the demon's?

Third, " 'I have taken you from your time in the present. I am now there, I can manipulate your life forever. Sign the paper and you can have it back. Remember, the longer you wait the worse things will get./Signed: Emily Greene'." I think "I have . . . get" is the demon's writing, right? And then Emily signed it to sell him her soul, and list of others. While, I did understand it, it's a little unclear. But Emily says the demon tried to buy her soul and she wouldn't let him. So, you kinda contradicted yourself . . .

More suggestions: describe how Marlene and the demon look, give him a name. You could even put a Rumplestilsken (sp?) skit in it, where she's not supposed to know his name. Oh, I had another really good idea. I won't tell you here, but I'll email it to you if you want to hear it.

let me know what you think,
