Analysing my writing #4: The Great Hearts III
Anyone who has read Shadowstrike will know that there is much more of a focus on the Emperor and seraph, so seeing them front and centre (and, of course, ONE), shouldn’t be too surprising.
Shadowstrike has some pretty dark moments (shocker) and a lot of fighting, particularly within the latter half of the book. The middle section has Calidan getting himself caught in a sticky situation that fuels a harrowing escape, Seya being an absolute legend and the Emperor stepping onto the battlefield.
The surprisingly negative start is likely the prologue, which is an assault on one of the defensive bastions of the Enemy. Would certainly be interesting to discover which word combinations made that section the most negative.
As you can see, book III is fairly full on and hopefully an adrenaline-filled read!
