Hello all! So I have this idea for a new adult fantasy-esque (Im not really sure if it fits into the fantasy genre ) novel. The setting is future America, after marijuana and gay marriage (possibly a few other things) have been legalized. Thinking the world is ready to accept them, creatures of myth who have been living among us in secret (vampires, faeries werewolves, etc) come out into the open to become part of society. However, many disapprove of them, labeling them as dangerous monsters, and this starts a new controversy for Americans to fight over. My MC Giselle is the 25yo daughter of the governor leading the fight against the creatures. But she is nothing like her family as she secretly hopes her father loses his war against the creatures so that they may become part of society. During a political event, a group of creatures start a riot and she is chased through the streets, away from the safety of her father and their bodyguards. She is found by a golem named Lonnie, who hides her from the creatures that are trying to harm her. The riot ends up lasting all night, so they are forced to remain hidden, during which time they get to know each other. Long story short, Giselle gets changed into a golem and ends up being a special kind of golem. If she doesn't reach the home of the golems in time, she'll die. I originally wanted to write the story in first person, following Giselle. But Lonnie, being a golem, has a lot of stories and secrets that he keeps from Giselle. If I wrote it in first person, I would have Lonnie reveal these secrets near the end of the novel. My only concern is that the story wouldn't be as exciting, because Giselle wouldn't know that her life is in danger. I also considered writing it in third person, following both Giselle and Lonnie. He would then discuss his secrets with other golems that they encounter, revealing them early on in the story. But I'm worried that doing this would detract from the suspense, and the reader wouldn't be able to connect to a third person point of view as well as a first person pov. What do you think?
