The Half Blood Sorceress

I got a description from Bryan Cohen the other day, and I thought I’d share it with you. I’ll be working on book two for NaNoWriMo in a couple months. I’ve already written out the plot, and gotten a few chapters in, but that’s okay. I have book three, and four, and five to work on if I need to. The point of NaNoWriMo for me is always to get as many words in as possible.

So, without further adieu, here is the blurb for The Half Blood Sorceress:

A tragedy. A secret. A journey to find the truth…

Sybel watches her mother burn on a funeral pyre. As she copes with her overwhelming grief, she never expects her father to push her into the flames as well. When Sybel survives the pyre without a single burn, she’s banished from the village for reasons she doesn’t understand.

With more questions than answers, Sybel’s only hope is to make a treacherous journey to find the wise mages of Kemore. As evil forces surround her, Sybel needs to fight tooth and nail to stay alive. When the attacks mount and winter approaches, the girl who would not burn must trust in unlikely allies to save her life and discover the truth…

The blurb

I like parts of the first blurb, but it was pointed out that the real meat of the blurb was the last two sentences, and fewer people would get to those sentences. Also, Ashini is the main character of the story, not Grom.

So, a new blurb. What do you think?~

Ashini, prince of the menaids, is trapped between his love of the beautiful goddess, Sekra, and duty to his people. The goddess pleads for peace between the menaids and trolls, while his people demand that they stand their ground.

How can you stop tensions between two races that began upon creation? Water and earth. Fire and ice. Always at odds with one another. And now Grom, leader of the trolls, is charging towards Iklestal, his army of rock-skinned trolls at his back.

Ashini has one last option, but will the goddess survive the aftermath?
