So, Edie, our MC, has arrived at the castle and for what feels like the last eleventy-million pages has been getting a tour of the place by Persephone "Percy" Blythe.
I like Percy. She seems odd...and layered...but she likes dogs and her dog likes her, so she can't be a horrible person in disguise.
Also, the story so far seems to have some similarities to The Thirteenth Tale, at least the film version. I hope that impression is changed soon.
