Hello, everyone! I was hoping to find beta readers for my novel - Giovanna and the Mysterious Absium. It's a middle grade high fantasy with some elements of hard fantasy. It's aimed at 9 to 12 year olds and leans a bit more towards a female audience (so I'd especially appreciate feedback from female readers). It's mostly action and comedy, with a bit of mystery thrown in.
What's the book about:
Eleven-year-old Giovanna always wanted to be a Warrior – no, more than that – she wants to be the greatest swordswoman on the planet! She’d spend hours daydreaming about protecting others from the monsters called Shadowless, until her mother would snap her awake and tell her to get back to her studies. Her mother was the biggest obstacle. She loathed Giovanna’s dream and did everything in her power to keep Giovanna from progressing. That’s why Giovanna ran away from home one night, making her way to Omise village with nothing but her dream, the filthy clothes on her back, and a cutout newspaper article that told her about Ryu Hayashi, the legendary Sensei who would be coming out of retirement.
