"Legend Unleashed" (Keeping Secrets 1) by M. Latimer-Ridley
(Young Adult, Urban Fantasy genre)
Book trailer: mlatimerridley.deviantart.com/…

When an infamous criminal is unleashed from his prison, it has consequences for everyone in Carwick. Temperance Levinthal in particular…

Temperance is satisfied with her ordinary life. Dealing with her eccentric, childlike parents is all the excitement she needs. That changes when Alastair Byron returns home.

After a failed matchmaking attempt by her father, sparks fly between her and Alastair-just not the good kind.

They are forced together though, when they are implicated in a grisly murder. Their search for the truth leads them to a secret world beneath Carwick, filled with werewolves, wizards and other magical faey.

However, uncovering the truth is far more dangerous than they’d ever imagined.

There are secrets within secrets.

Even Alastair may be more than he seems.

Oh, intersting. I like the mix of fairly outright creepiness and grounding everyday sort of detail.

wow, just amazing, i would love to be able to write like that. English is my second language, although I had endless ideas for a story, I could never put it like that in words.

Firstly, a squee- Yay for werewolves!:boogie:

I - I am not sure how I can go about critiquing this, a fully published work! But for me, the only thing I could say would be that I would like to see detail in the areas of the underground city, as everything else, the mundane in the chapter, is very well described!

wow this is very interesting and I was hooked from the begining, may I ask how long have you been writing and if at all possible, mainly if you are interested, would you like to take a look at a few of my works? I'd like to get some good feedback if that it alright with you :)

:glomp: thank you so much! no problem at all, we've been writing together (co-authors) for about 9 years now! :wow: saying it makes us feel old! The chapters have been through many, many edits (so it's definitely a case of going back and back over things until your head aches!).
We critique each other regularly, which we found really worked for us because we're good friends with very similar ways of thinking.
The best thing might be to get a good friend to do something similar for you :)

Enjoying your writing and the story. Only a single frustration, paragraph formatting and separation combined with single sentence paragraphs; I find they frustrate the reading and in the case of single sentence paragraphs make my teeth grit, not as a writer, but as a reader.

*shrug* these are sylistic critiques and not content or grammar issues; though single sentence paragraphs used to get me a smack on the hand from Sister Eloise. *eyes the scar*
