Daniel Mountney | 10 comments Hi Folks,

I'm looking for Beta Readers for the first 3 chapters of my adult Fantasy novel, Fall of the Firstborn.

This is a Fantasy Mystery novel. It’s setting is one of ‘Sword and Sorcery’ but it’s plotted along the lines of a ‘whodunit’. So if you’re a reader of Heroic Fantasy and enjoy mystery plots as well, this could be of interest to you. Think Tolkien/Rowling crossover.

I’ve been working on the book for a number of years and am gearing up for self-publication. But I would very much like it to be read by beta readers first as I know how invaluable readers’ feedback is.

Here’s the blurb:

Something stirs in the depths of Mistwood, a timeless evil almost forgotten. The Curse, long in slumber, has awoken, and First Earth is about to fall...

It is an age of paradise. From their Circle, the Firstborn people rule the realms of land, sea and sky. But when Deorwine brings news of an emerging plague and strange monsters on the prowl, not even their great powers can stem the insidious threat. None can deny it is the Curse awakened – nor that their paradise is lost.

With the rise of a shadowy faction that challenges the foundations of the Circle, there grows a canker from within as well as without, breeding fear and distrust in an already troubled land. And when friends turn foes and loved ones fall to darkness, even the surest swords waver.

Surrounded by enemies, and with lands ravaged by plague, Deorwine the champion must brave a treacherous unknown if he is to unravel the mysteries of the Curse and stop the downward spiral towards civil war. And when signs are seen of the coming of mankind, the lives of countless more lie at stake. But Deorwine must go where no other will and unearth the darkest secret of all, or watch the world meet its long-harbingered doom...

The chapters are fully edited for grammar, so it should just be a beta-read for story/plot/character etc. If you’re interested, let’s talk in more detail.

Looking forward to hearing from you!
