    Dennis Thompson created a good character in his story, but unfortunately he didn't create much with them. The writing is good with only a few errors, but the story stopped before it ever got started, leaving readers wondering if there will be more posted in the future.

    The writing is good (beyond the comment in the chapter section), but I wonder if you meant to set this as complete? Without a summary I have no idea if this is all you meant to post from a larger story, if you got stuck, or if this is it. If the last, I would suggest giving this piece some sort of theme since there was really no decisive ending or sense of a message from it. I assume that is not the case since you have a second chapter that was never uploaded, but I would suggest putting something in the summary to tell readers that this is either only a sample from a bigger story that will someday be available or edit this to be a stand alone piece with some substance.

    You're making a common mistake with your dialogue grammar. If you use a speaking verb don't end with a period, use a comma. If you are using other punctuation like an exclamation or question mark then you don't need a comma. Example? - It's like the gods send rain every time im out on patrol." said Drakar --> It's like the gods send rain every time im out on patrol,"said Drakar. - “Shall I remove the saddle as well?”, asked Drakar --> “Shall I remove the saddle as well?” asked Drakar - See the difference? Also have your punctuation inside the quotes, not outside.
