When a well-orchestrated theft at the bank leads to the loss of a million dollar painting, it’s up to our favorite duo to solve the crime and recover the stolen artifact. Laced behind the intricate storyline of solving the mysterious theft and bringing the mastermind to justice, “No Second Chances” is a story that is full of quick-paced characterization and strong character growth. Sable1456’s strength lies in setting up and portraying inner conflict within characters and letting us witness how characters develop and grow after experiencing inner turmoil. After all, everyone experiences doubt and conflict in their lives; it’s how they stand back and take the opportunities given to them that truly defines the worth of a person. ~Calidian
