About the Book:
My first attempt at a young adult book. This is a prologue and I want to know: Does it work as YA? Does it intrigue you?
About the Author:
My name is Scott Reintgen. I am writing a novel, Revenant, that will hopefully remind people of the "kyngs and knyghtes and grete dedes" of old.
This is my first attempt at YA. I'm aware that it's a short excerpt. Also, know that this is a prologue... These characters will not be heard from again. We will hear ABOUT them, not from them.
I'd love to know:
- Is this effective for YA? Is the language fitting? It's a "dark" opening, but is it TOO dark?
- Are you intrigued by this chapter? This is a MOMENTOUS occasion and will be referred back to a lot, but I want to know if it works on its own.
- World-Building- I wanted to make it as subtle as possible. Did this work? Did you need more? Less?
Thanks for reading!
