Many thanks for looking over my work and providing honest and constructive feedback, it is highly appreciated.
I was concerned that the info dump and name dropping could be a little bewildering so I'm glad that you pointed this out. You also provided me with a lot of insight that I didn't take into account.
The advice you gave about information in an epilogue being redundant if it will be explored elsewhere in the novel has been especially helpful.
Again, your advice has been invaluable, and I am glad that you have provided your honest take on structural elements that I would not have considered.
