This story is two stories in one. A heroic sword and sorcery tale that is actually a drama offered on "HV" (which is somewhat like TV in the future) and the story of several of the actors and their friends. I think you will like it, I certainly did.
I don't give a lot of tens, stories have to "blow me away" to get one, but this is certainly solid 9 s, A plus, in every category. The plot is varied and you get two plots to enjoy. The technical is fine, except the author says 1,400 kilograms is almost 3,000 pounds. It is 3,080 pounds at 2.2 pounds for a kilogram. That is not a grammar problem, but it seems a technical issue to me. And I liked the story even more upon re-reading it than I did the first time. If you don't agree, tell the author why, or send me an email why I am wrong. I am pretty sure neither of us will get a word from anyone who reads the story, except praise.
