Is it destiny? Or is it a choice?
This is Part One of the Caster's Bond series, and a prequel to Darkened Voices (which has become Part Three of the series). Very much a work in progress, this is in need of a lot of feedback. In particular:
Are the MCs people you want to spend time with? Are they believable, well grounded, sufficiently flawed to be real (despite their fantasy setting)? That being the question particularly for the female characters. This tale will grow into an epic fantasy but it is essentially a romance as the relationship between the MCs is central to everything.
Is the world building sufficient to immerse the reader in a different world? Does anything jar, and break the suspension of belief?
The pace and structure of the story is deliberately languorous. Is it too much so? I'm tired of frantic fantasies that pile on the padding in lieu of story-driven, plot-demanded action. The pace accelerates throughout the series, becoming more and more dark and violent.
Is there anything else that jolts? This is meant to be a smooth if swooping roller-coaster ride.
