Here is what my editor had to say about the Legend of the Firewalker:
It’s terrific! I love your wise-cracking hero, who finds himself thrust into these bizarre circumstances with no real guide. And I love the set up of the supernatural world and these well-defined characters. The supernatural conflict and the relationships that took root here will be able to take you through book after book. That eerie, spirit realm where everything is gray except for the people – sound doesn't behave as it should – and objects are frozen in place, is really imaginative and creepy. It’s got a strong cinematic feel and it creates tremendous atmosphere. In short, you’ve done some terrific world building here that’s highly imaginative and peopled with appealing, interesting characters we can care about.
I just read the first chapter and I really like where the setting takes place at the end of the school year, and I also like the ending of chapter one. I love the way the characters capture my attention, and oh my God what is happening to Leah? I Love your writing style. I am excited, can't wait for the releasing of the book to finish reading the story!
I am so excited that you got a chance to check out the first chapter and that you enjoyed my writing style! I can't wait until you find out what happens next! :)
First chapter was really good! i like how it started off like a ghost scene! chapter one got me hooked!, chapter one is better than that twilight book so far!. Finally a story with interesting different characters with a strong back ground, looking forward to the release of this book!!!!
Thank you so much for your review and for the kind words! I am glad that you enjoyed the characters and I look forward to hearing your thoughts after you finish reading the first book! :)
It's me, B. I've just finished reading Ch. 1., and I think you've set up the hook really well. The setting, a college campus, couldn't be more fitting for your target readership. It's easy for YAs to identify with the characters either because they've experienced campus life themselves (cramming for finals, trying to get along with roommates, packing to leave the dorm, etc.) or because they've seen an older friend or sibling go through that. Add to that the mystery involving Leah--are strange things really happening, or is her feeble mind imagining them?--and you have the reader hooked. The fact that we don't yet know who Lafonda is--friend or foe?--adds even more mystery to the story. For example, is Lafonda telling Leah the truth in the shower scene? I want to find out. Well done!
Hey B!! Thank you so much for your review and I am glad that you liked the college campus as the background setting for the story. Those are some very intriguing questions! Is Lafonda telling Leah the truth? It really does make you go hmm?? I really look forward to reading your feedback after you have finished the book! Thanks again!!ReplyDelete

Thank you for the review Mr. W! I can't wait for you to read the rest of the book as well. I am glad you enjoyed reading the first chapter. :)Delete
