@ Rotting Baron, that was a fun short story. Very Russian, so to speak. And I like the description of the fight.
@ Happy, I'm liking it as well. The two stories tie themselves into each other neatly.
I'm still thinking about the second part of "Inhterit the Earth", because I'm not sure about its structure and what I should focus on - I'm thinking short snippets from Sophie's first steps as a Hunter, discovering the hidden world and her old life.
