I did find that I made a couple of minor spelling errors. I went through it five or six times at least, but hey, it happens. I just hate it when it happens to me.

--Nice story, Chuckles. I counted three spelling mistakes, but, as you said, they were minor.

Greatness! It's been a long time since I've read a story posted on this internet that was this good. If it weren't the wee early hours of the morning, I'd go back and read the rest of the series. That'll have to wait till tommorow.
But in all truth, I found nothing at fault with this story. The descriptions, the emotion, the characters...everything was just so perfectly placed togeather.
Incredible work. I can't wait to read the rest.

Well, not exactly. Hades (or Pluto) was the name of Zeus's brother who was god of the underworld. The underworld was called Tartarus or Erebus. After a while, Hades' name became synonymous with the underworld he ruled, and people called it by his name. But the actual name of Hell (which was the underworld and the place the Titans were trapped) was Tartarus or Erebus.

Ghosts also has the name of the "boatman" who transports you across the river Styx, Charon (pilot who takes Sagus to Erebus in part two), the name of the three headed dog who guards the entrance of Erebus/Tartarus, Cerberus (the name of the UNSC cruiser that took the Spartans to Erebus), the name of the Greek god of death, Thanatos (mysterious, evil man who tortures Sagus in part four) and at least three references to the story of Orpheus (Orpheus was the former name of Erebus, Eurydice his doomed wife is the name of the planet's moon, and although I'm yet to reveal it, Orpheus' home town of Parnassus is the name of the main city).

Whew! Got it? Very Happy

--You see, I knew that. I love mythology. Norse mythology is my favorite. In Greek mythology, what was the name of that guy who brought his friend to Hades to get his wife, and Hades told them to sit on the bench and they got their asses stuck on it, and the guy's friend got to go but the other guy had to stay? Why didn't that one guy just take his pants off.
--I think I found a mistake. What year does this story take place?

The background of the story began in 2537, with the Bishkek Rebellion. What is currently taking place is in the latter part of 2552.

--Oh, never mind. I thought this story took place in 2537, and I thought the Battle Rifle was a mistake, but it's not.
