I am having doubts on a book I wrote. I am not sure the plot is strong enough to keep the readers interest, or if the ending goal is strong enough. Elementary Psi Young man has had a normal elven childhood, kidnapped by an evil mentalist that senses the boys psi ability. (his goal to enslave the boys mind, and increase his power) Tortured and abused mentally, his ability explodes in his life. When he is freed, his "gift" is tied to the abuse that brought it out. So everything in his life is effected. Part of the ability is a humming or ringing he hears when people are around, deafening when in a crowd. He avoids all friends and has panic attacks when stressed. He is eating poorly, staying close to his dog and practices with his staff to the point of exhaustion. His parents travel with him to a large city, to see the academy for Psi ability. Where he finds many people that have abilites similar to his. He has encounters during his travels(to the city and in the city) that cause him to draw on the new ability. Plot type: small part; boy versus man (evil mentalist) main plot: boy versus himself(over coming PTSD type problems) another: Boy versus himself in education(learning to use his abilities and not think of them as a curse.) sub plot: boy versus girl (romantic interest) is it love or Florence Nightengale syndrome. sub plot; boy vs girl; student with similar back ground isolating herself from everyone. sub plot; boy versus community(small town boy in bustling active city) My concern, I have no direct villian except for the opening chapters. the ending is when he finds that he is atypical but "normal" and begins to thrive using his abilities, to help himself, family and friends. Uniting with friends to become stronger. What do you think?
