I enjoyed the flavor of Chasya's Awakening. To read the name of Yeshua lifted up in an artistic expression of praise, especially set in the Holy Land, was stirring. The portrayal of paradise, like Eden, as a perfect and wonderful park with all of the goodness that God intended with children playing in the berry patches, made me happy. I especially found the parallel scenes in the spiritual entertaining with the demon and his apprentice.
This story became more enjoyable as it progressed, however, overall it left me feeling unsatisfied. It was a good story, it just didn't finished. It was as if the majority of the scenes were only there to advance the plot, but we never really get to know the characters. They aren't given enough room to show us what they are like, and there are some interesting characters here in interesting real life conflicts. I wanted to see more of their human side. Stop summarizing so much of the "non-plot" conversation and show it. Little things tell a lot.
A lot of potential here, but I would have rated it higher if it was more fleshed out.
