A Battle of Heirs

First off, I must say how I extremely love historical fiction. This story however… I cannot say if I love it or if I hate it. I’m saying it is too soon to tell. I believe the author has potential, without a doubt. I’m letting the author know I will not go easy on him/her— or any author for that matter, when it comes to historical fiction.

You have to do your research. As much as I like the originality of this plot. I also appreciate when authors do their research about REAL historical events. It shows effort and dedication and that’s what I like to see.

There’s spelling and grammatical errors that need fixing. It is also very dry, needs a lot more detail and passion. I feel little to no passion, sadly. Also I feel it would be better if written in first person. This story— or this writer— needs to find their style and I don’t believe writing in third person is good for this story. As of now you read it like a history textbook and I don’t know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing. I believe majority of readers will see it as bad.

I have nothing more to say. All I can hope is that this story will get better. As said, it is too soon to tell. This story has caught my interest and I look forward to the potential that I see in this story and the author. Interesting plot, I recommend it to those interested in Camelot and King Arthur.
