((personally I find the opening weak, the title uncreative, and a character choice that has been chosen by too many people simply because they think it is "cool."
You've established a setting, which is enough to START a story, but what does this have to do with DLiTL? IF it does has something to do with DLiTL, you've made no indication, and no real Place for someone to come in and advance the story. Unless you're trying to play second-side player, or you expect the child to die by a large explosion of gargantuan proportions, There's no position for someone to join in. Espescially not, say.... a Lich, faunish-elf, or one of the many other characters I have in reserve to appear, because no one has taken the protagonist seat. Give me something more to go with and I'll join you))
Expect naught of me, for to expect something of me is to fail to see me for what I truly am. In your case, this is simply, unexpected.
