Request for beta-readers
I've just finished writing the third draft of my novel, and I need some honest criticism on plot, characters, pacing, and writing style. I have a proofreader already, so I have no need of any assistance in that aspect. If anyone is interested, you can send me a PM. Preferably someone who is not busy and willing to finish this within the next three weeks. Thanks! Here's some details about the story.
Title: The Reaper of Iremia
Genre: Fantasy with a little mystery
Word count: 144k+ words
Summary: Calian hides many secrets, one being that he is the notorious vigilante known as Actaeon. After a murder incident during his childhood almost drove him insane, he has vowed to hunt down all criminals. However, one night he fails to stop one such murder, and he soon discovers that it is just the beginning of a more sinister plot.
Reneia, Calian’s friend, holds a grudge. During her childhood, she witnessed the assassination of her mother and vowed to capture the culprit at all costs. Ten years later, she is about to become an official member of Iremia’s City Guard when history repeats itself; her father is gravely injured in another assassination attempt, and the suspect is Actaeon.
Two friends—one driven by revenge and the other by justice—both are seeking the truth. But as they delve deeper into uncovering the mystery behind all the deaths in the city, they discover that not every thing is as it seems, and there is an evil plot behind the incidents; one that is tied with Calian’s real identity and the reason he became a vigilante in the first place.
