Seeking beta readers for speculative/literary fiction novel
I am looking for beta readers and willing to beta-read in return. It is speculative/literary fiction with elements of magic realism, fantasy and alternative history/dystopia. It is aimed at older YA and adults. Here is a brief premise.
Maëlys and Morgan Berthou, sixteen-year-old twins, graffiti artists and budding marine biologists, have lost their souls. On their birthday, they discover that their contemporary life and family on the island in North Wales is not all it appears. Not only do they have problems with Áine, mam and physician, and stepfather Pherick, fisherman and alcoholic, but for Morgan, disability, and a bankrupt and Machiavellian uncle, floods, riots, food and coffee shortages, and importantly, the absence of bees. Together and apart, Maëlys and Morgan must circumvent the problems of their lives. And search worlds with winged sprytan living on the ocean and daiman, and combat the machinations of the powerful, environmental catastrophe and a grandfather intent on killing one of them–all of this to bring bees back to the world, recover their inner voices and reveal the true nature of who they are. This is an intricate tale of life, love, family, loss, healing, betrayal and discovery that begins and ends a cycle of stories.
It is long at 125,000 words and part of a cycle.
