I'm looking for Beta readers to feed back on the first six chapters of my new fantasy, sci fi, alternative reality novel. The novel is complete but is quite a beast so I've selected the opening section to be critiqued.
The extract is 88 pages or just shy of 31,000 words long.
The story revolves around a dystopian theme, a human culture has evolved on a distant planet and been usurped by a fallen entity who has plundered the world she has occupied. This is, of course, unknown to those who live there and a final rescue mission is dispatched to help the locals get back on track and restore balance. The planet plays a key role in the greater scheme of things, far more significant than anyone there is aware of and the usurper guards her power jealously and ruthlessly.
Issues of parallel and convergent evolution are explored and a world remarkably like our own is portrayed in which self discovery, threat, suspense and a classic struggle between opposing forces all play out.
