Hello everybody - I'm new here, and I usually just read. A few months back, I decided to start writing, but would stop every time due to horrid writing. I learned a bit, read a lot, and have finally decided to write a book. I am heavily influenced my Christopher Paolini's Inheritance Cycle. The emotions were deep, the plot was twisty and unexpected, and you were tossed right into the middle of the conflict. My main worry with my plot is that people cannot relate to a new universe. If I wrote a book with the setting as Earth and killed Barrack Obama, people would be mad/disgusted. I am worried that I will not be able to simulate that in my stories. Anyways, let me begin. In a new universe called Albacinia, several large civilizations live. There are petty outbreaks, skirmishes, and occasionally minor wars, but nothing major. The medieval towns and their inhabitants recognize magic, but it is a rare gift, and those that have it often do not tell. Stretching across a large portion of the continent is a country with a monarchy for a government. This country is called Valia. A neighboring country, Isunis, which has been Valia's allies for a long time turns against them suddenly. Investigation reveals a network of assassins/wizards that sprawls across the two countries, and of their sinister plot to gain control of the continent. How does it sound? Too cliche? Decent? And please don't tell me "anything can be good if you write it good enough", I want your honest opinion.
