Book One, Part One, Chapter Six: The Meeting

Then I thought, What job?
--> Uncapitalise (exist. ?) the 'What' Smile.

“Or were you planning to pick someone up off the streets of Storm City tonight on your way out?”
--> 'pick up from', I'd say...

Chapter eight: The March through the Mountains

I had good reasons!, I thought, but it didn’t help.
--> Irksome punctuation... ^^

Book One, Part One, Chapter... One!

Hadn’t Jonathan Trent had me sent here?

--> 'Hadn't Jonathan Trent sent me here?' or any of the other many possible ways of putting it...

Chapter Two

“you know you can’t ask, you’re not allowed to say these things.”
--> Connect or separate those sentences decently Wink.

“The High Abbot believe so too,”
--> believes...

"You’ve been, haven’t you?”
--> Add 'there' after been.

Book Two, Part One, Chapter 8

Losing M, M returning, the black book – Hannathras – Varimathras – Sarvavidh -
--> the 'Black Book'? Smile

To clarify, because this is a departure from the nomenclature in the original version of Book One: The black book's formal name is the Book of Arthas, and is capitalized when referred to that way. When characters refer to it as the black book, it's more in the spirit of, "Hey, remember that book we're looking for? It's black." In that case, I'm leaving it uncapitalized.

That's a good way to clarify, because I have been wracking my brain about it Wink.

I glanced over my shoulder, and in a few moments more, the entire monastery was flooded and cleansed with white sunlight: the grass shown green, and the low rose bushes shown red, and the white marble temple glowed.

Shown or shone? http://www.albatrosbits.com/murloc.php?book=One&chapter=17

Yes, and long-time grammar checkers feel ashamed for not having caught sight of it before... ^^

Nothing happened. No knowledge flowed through me, no magical energy. I poked the pendant, shaking it, trying to make sure it knew that it had been donned. But there was nothing.

How do you poke and shake something at the same time? Razz

Pride overwhelmed me. It took over, as had the elemental joy before: I’m in it now, I thought. I died, and now I’m alive. I feel like hammered hell, worse than I’ve ever felt in my life, but this is awesome..


Double period Smile

From the chapter 'Feathers', Book 2, Part I, Chapter VIII

Quote:
Arthas’s was a name I knew, an echo of an echo from the old times: Arthas the Betrayer, he was called; Arthas Frostmourn. Arthas the Scary as Hell.


Frostmourne, with an 'e' Very Happy. It's a recurrent error I've noticed.

From Book I, Chapter IX.

Quote:
The real Madoran was much more practical. He glanced back at commander and nodded sharply.


The commander Smile.

From Book I, Chapter XIII.

Quote:
The ground reminded us what it felt like to not sink into it with a squelch, and the air smelled fresh again.


Reminded us of.

Book I, Chapter XV.

Quote:
"The gnome president at the time, a white-haired little man with an eye for flare, decided that the tunnel would proceed from that point, bending slowly back around to Ironforge, out under the water, as a living monument to the engineers who worked and died. It also made for an amazing spectacle along the otherwise boring trip, and gave people the eternal question of how a tunnel that ran between two landlocked cities went under water for a mile.”


Flair, not flare Very Happy.

Book I, Chapter XV.

Some more Very Happy.

Quote:
Madoran sat bold upright, and I swore. Allyndil shook his head imperceptibly, and we set out as though nothing were wrong.


Bolt upright :p.

Book I, Chapter Sixteen.

Quote:
As we carried on, the land about us began to change subtly. Plants began to spring up in the dead land between the forest and the stream: plants which looked like nothing which I had ever seen before.


Plants which looked like nothing I'd ever seen before. (drop the second which)

Book I, Chapter Sixteen.

Quote:
A moment later, from deep within the city, a great, sonorous bell toll rang out. The city’s civilians looked away from us at the noise, and, calmly but urgently, and began moving off.


The bell tolled and rang out? Or only one of both? Wink

Book I, Chapter Twenty-One.

Quote:
We hurried back to the right, along-side the ichor canal.


Alongside.

Book I, Chapter Twenty-One.

Quote:
I look to the sound’s source, and saw to my horror that the top of the crystal tomb had cracked open.


I looked.

Book I, Chapter Twenty-Two.
