[COLOR=DarkRed][I]Son and brother, genius and killer. This is Itachi's story, from cradle to manhood, a descent into darkness with a mind so terribly clear it redefines the borders of madness. Strength at any price. Power at any cost. Shinobi are not born powerful to make martyrs of themselves...[/I][/COLOR]

[I]Born a true genius and prodigy of ninjutsu, Itachi's childhood is short and bitter. From the first he begins to be pointed in the direction of his destiny: to sacrifice all in exchange for power...[/I]

[SIZE=1][COLOR=Sienna]I am...in absolute awe. The story is so powerful already even in only the first chapter, and all I could think of at the end was that I wanted to read more! The most impressive thing to me in this is how you dictate so clearly the difference between a [I]genius[/I] and a [I]person.[/I] There are many times in which an author will attempt to get that across to the audience, but rarely do they ever succeed in such a manner as you did. The imagery is also outstanding, and the narration by Itachi is so...effective. One feels as if they have been placed exactly behind his eyes, watching his own life. It's brilliant the way that you've blended the essence of the child with the parts of the adult. It is an absolutely beautiful piece of writing, and I can't wait to see more.[/COLOR][/SIZE]

[SIZE=1][COLOR=Sienna]Again, the writing is beautiful. I am constantly drawn back to this story again and again, because I cannot believe how perfectly it embodies what I would think of Itachi. It is interesting not only from the Naruto-fan sense, but also looking into the depth and complexity of being human, and how events can have such different effects on different people.[/COLOR][/SIZE]

[COLOR=DarkRed] Obsessed with knowing his strength and his purpose in life, Itachi's sanity begins to unravel. The one hope he clings to is the secret his clan keeps---a forbidden [I]jutsu[/I] so cruel it breaks the wielder's heart...and grants him the ultimate power. [/COLOR]

[SIZE=1]This is easily one of the best fanfics I've read, period. The amount of thought put into Itachi's character development is obvious. There are encounters that I've never even considered prior to reading this fanfic that now seem almost [I]vital[/I] to Itachi's growth as a person. That is the mark of great writing, I think, when the work captures the very being of a character and runs with it. This is truly excellent work.[/SIZE]

After a full day I am finally dine reading and I have to say, this is the best fanfic I've ever read! I don't even know who Itachi is, but from reading your story he has instantly become my favorite Naruto charachter! I love the narration, the way the story is told, some of the lines were brilliant and memorable, and I love how Itachi puts his emotions into words. I cannot wait for chapter 5!

[SIZE="1"]It's been a while since I've found a fanfic that really held my attention, but you've more than succeeded. Itachi is one of the most interesting Naruto characters, and you've given him a very fluid and believable backstory. Great work, keep writing.[/SIZE]

Lordy, it's been a long time. Being a newlywed with a full time job and a part-time job is time-consuming.

Itachi struggles to keep his grip on sanity as he learns that everything he has done may not be for the reasons he believes.
