At this point I really need plot holes and other large scale problems pointed out to me. You can go all grammar Nazi on it if you want, as hopeully not too much will change.

I really don't like not getting all three POVs introduced in the first three chapters.

I mean, it's an Uphoff, of course I'll read it anyway, and it's not up there on irritation where lying authors are (think the last Dresden Files book), but I don't like it.

Others may feel differently.

Is it acceptable to write alright as one word, rather than two separate ones? For example:

She calls them whenever she is travelling to assure them she is alright.

Similar ‘merged’ words such as altogether and already have been accepted in standard English for a very long time, so there is no logical reason to object to the one-word form alright. Nevertheless, many people dislike it and regard it as incorrect, so it’s best to avoid using alright in formal writing. Write it as two separate words instead:

She calls them whenever she is travelling to assure them she is all right.

My understanding is that "alright" is technically incorrect, but acceptable in dialog. In this case I'm erring on the side of technically correct.
