    Hi Sandra,

    I think I agree with Kell, you can pull some of the details out of the hook – because you have them in the blurb. You can probably take out some of the world building factors. Much as in the Wizard of Oz we don’t need to describe all of the places Dorothy will travel through, I don’t think the hook is harmed by having a little less detail about Elanraigh.

    I’d suggest focussing on the inner and outer struggle the corruption of Salvai’s gifts might cause. Perhaps even assuming in the hook that the reader knows this is a sequel.

    But a good go at a difficult task!
