The Darkness You Fear is the most weirdly structured book.
But I like it. So I'm sticking with it. It feels right, even as my brain tells me that it is extremely unconventional. Maybe I'll have second thoughts in the rewrite, but the whole story kind of circles around itself, developing the themes. The themes are strong...I think...so the story works...I think.
The last two chapters, which should be straight forward denouncement are instead turning into three or four chapters of more or less flashbacks. Can you end a book with flashbacks?
I think there will still be action denouncement in the very last chapter, so maybe that will work.
Freaky subconscious storyteller, making it all weird.
