Chapter 2: Great foreshadowing and description, plus an intriguing puzzle and higher stakes. Great work! (The things I'm find are more line edits than critique stuff - typos, capitalization, that sort of thing. If you're interested in a line edit, I can send one for each chapter in a private message.)

Chapter 1: Hooked me right in with your voice! :0)
Two suggestions (IMHO):Consider dropping some dialogue tags. Manyh times, the reader will know who is speaking without them. In those places, they slow the story down. I know they are a jpart of your voice in the story, so I wouldn't eliminate them completely, just some of them. And be careful with tags like 'he hissed'; he can only hiss words with fricative consonants like 's' and 'c'- which isn't the case in the sentence where you used it in this chapter.

Masterful world-building, an engaging protagonist, and an awesome opening line! I think Liane nailed it when she called your writing 'seamless'. (I'll post chapter comments as I go.)

You have not yet begun to be harsh. I'll keep that in mind. As for checking chapter comments, I'd check them if I know how it worked, because I don't see any way to make chapter comments from my end. I would prefer chapter comments myself, since I have over two dozen chapters up and that would inflate my comment page to obscene levels.

Dear Anson, I am not sure how this works. Should we add comments at each chapter. (I am not sure if writers check their chapter comments, on earlier chapters.)

Well, anyway,let me know which you would prefer. I will post this here, even though I posted it at the end of your chapter 1.

Chapter 1: "ominous boom" ???? I love you and appreciate you. But that was the worst of cliches - and, at exactly the wrong time. I was really enjoying your story and then "boom" I got hit with "ominous". Dear Anson, you are better than that. --- Am I being too harsh? ... "a scary boom", "a mechanical boom", "a sudden boom", "a loud boom" -- Keep it coming, you are a great story teller. Wayne Thornton .

"It was supposed to be an easy job. Get in, rob the mansion blind, retire happy. Then my idiot partner gets us caught ..." -- I enjoyed reading that line -- I am still laughing as to how realistically ironic that would be.
