Hello, Critiques are welcome. Dear Agent: THE DAY OF THE BLACK MOON is a 121,000 word epic fantasy with multiple points of views. This is the first of a four book series; we are drafting book two and outlining three and four. Fans of Tad William’s Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn will find a similar balance between character focus and world building.(Only included in agent wants a comparison) Cale lives a simple life until the elven Princess Alina knocks on his door. He’s prophesied to save the world, but can an ordinary elf really become a hero? He accepts his destiny but can’t decide if he fears it or his trainer more. (Alt Line: He accepts his destiny, taking up the sword—and keeps dropping it during training sessions.) Cale continues to fail, and Alina doubts his capabilities. As the two-hearted hero, Cale is foretold to kill the djinn emperor and bring peace to the continent of Atia. The elves in Calista, and the djinn in Ubel stand on the brink of another war. Cale couldn’t have arrived at a better time. Yet, it seems like the djinn emperor and Cale are pawns in someone else’s game. An act shakes Atia’s foundations and leaves the ground soaked in blood, and it may cause the death of magic. The tragedy forces an unprepared Cale to move faster than the elves planned. Cale’s already stumbling, and this push could make him fall. Cale stands between the annihilation of elves, the death of magic, and war with the djinn, but his inadequacy will let others to rise in his stead. (should/can we re-phrase this last sentence as a question or do agents not like that kind of thing?)

We're still not sure how to approach that in the final paragraph there.
