Book review of "Feathers of the Fallen" by Christopher D. Monceux
Today, I'm reviewing the fantasy novel "Feathers of the Fallen" by Christopher D. Monceux, self-published 2018.
Overview of points discussed in this review:
Strengths of the book
Likeable, well-rounded, distinct characters
Great dialogue and distinct voice
Weaknesses of the book
Point of View issues
minor worldbuilding issues
Grammar/writing on a sentence level
A couple of things not discussed in the video:
There were a few intimate scenes in the book, and they were very well done. On the flipside, the writer placed a heavy focus on female beauty, and it’s a stereotypical, physical beauty at that.
Overall, I very much enjoyed the read, but at times the issues in the novel took me out of the story. The overall need for a thorough copyedit and proofread also bogged the reading down a bit.
Could this book have benefited from a developmental edit/book coach?
