So I have parts of my book where I try to keep the suspense, for instance, the main character meets a man that is about to die. The man says that he recently found a successor. The main character has a suspicion on who it might be, but I want the reader to contemplate about it as well and not tell outright what the main character is thinking. Example from the book; Fendraels voice gets deeper and he is starting to become irritated. “I don't know what you think will happen, but nothing outweighs the fate of the world. My mother set me out on this quest. You and the stone made me determined to continue it… Perhaps it is time for your people to emerge and take its rightful place in the world. To become part of its solution!” “I am sorry Fendrael. At one point in my life I would have agreed with you. But as fate will have it, I have found a successor. He will continue my legacy and keep my people safe.” Fendrael suddenly receives an ominous premonition and walks briskly out the room without looking back. He stops at the exit and says. “The world has changed much the past thousand years. You should know that if you are as wise as you say you are.” Any suggestions? As my native language is not English I also notice that I have some problems expressing emotion on the character. For instance "Fendraels voice gets deeper and he is starting to become irritated.” How would you explain when a person tries to convince another person but gets nowhere, and his voice change accordingly?
