I hope this goes here.... So I'm trying to figure out how to word the dreaded Premise and all sources of information say totally different things. I'm writing a series and came up with a great premise for it :- A were-phoenix gains an alliance with a Demi-God in order to find her sister; a grim-reaper who’s just been commissioned to eliminate him. :- but that is for the series as a whole and while its important to the inciting incident in the first book, the first book is more like :- A were-phoenix is thrust into the world of a Demi-God and now she must fight a woman with mind control powers who has locked up her friend in a zoo of magical creatures before she can go home to look for her missing sister. :- but this to me doesn't sound as strong, or what a Premise should be. I'm so confused. Thanks for the help guys.
