"dark, addictive and intriguing"

In a world much like our own, hidden deep underground, is a secret school. And not just any school, but one where the students are part human, part something else. The story follows three of the new arrivals at the school as they try to come to terms with a world far different from anything they’ve encountered before.

Currently at 23 chapters (plus some lovely bonus stories!), I couldn’t help but devour the entire thing in one sitting. With so many school and college-type webserials out there, Addergoole comes as an utter relief. While there is some focus on relationships, classes, and the usual ‘school’ stuff, there is also a larger, darker subplot.

It’s well-written, and the premise is original. There’s a good balance between intrigue and explanation, keeping the reader’s understanding of the school only half a step ahead of the main characters’.

Negatives? It took me a while to keep track of all the character names (and I had to guess most of the pronunciations!), although the separate character description pages are useful in this respect.

As for the website it self, the thumbnail image here on Muse's Success is out of date: the background is now a soft, easy on the eyes sponged pattern. The layout is clear and easy to navigate. Other’s have mentioned the lack of an RSS feed, but I follow @LynThorneAlder on twitter and so get news of updates that way!
