Description of book "Guardians by Design - Land"

When the land and Designer alike choose Dahj to be the first recipient of groundbreaking physical augmentations, the fallen leader reluctantly learns that they have been granted to him under life-threatening stipulations. Accompanied by two other ‘Guardians’ and a banded assassin, Dahj must defy the monotonous cycle of his templated life to travel to the land of grandeur now known as Yellowstone National Park. Here, he will ‘visit unique geographical features throughout the land that strongly represent the corresponding element’ to re-empower the depleted appendage of a unique deity, and bring an end to the pressing threat of adapting predators.
Join the Guardians on their elemental path as they face powerful adversaries including jets of boiling water, deceit, and viscious carnivores

Wow, this is getting so good! I always find stories involving the elements and going on a journey surrounding them to be fascinating; I don't know why.

The world-building is strong so far, details and narratives involving different locations, makes you feel like you're there. There's a handful of exposition spread out and explains some details, but also adds mystery and intrigue in other aspects, making things more interesting.

I also like how you're showing the characters interacting in this new area as the lead and friends get used to the new life. That way, we, as the audience, can also get to learn about the characters and the world before they start on their life-changing journey.

I'm also intrigued by how ambiguous this Designer is in his motives and meaning, which I also like (Reminds me of the cloaked guy from Habanai Renmei).

This story is unpredictable and great so far, and I look forward to seeing where this goes. Keep up the great work~

dahj_the_bison, Ah, so I got to wait for them? This will be interesting...

Now I know how Dahj felt when Brenlon told them things would be answered in record time

have you thought of introducing some pics for your readers to see the creatures you use in your story?

Haha. Sorry, I don't have that kind of artistic talent. It's something I've thought a lot about, though, and paired with the descriptions of the landscape I think this tale would be fantastic in visual media.

I do, however, have pictures that I took in Yellowstone years ago that I have paired with quotes from this book and posted to my Instagram. @seattle2anywhere

Templated life is our life :D

Hi. I started reading your story. So nice to see a different kind of story world. It's really enjoyable.
I don't want to be rude but may I suggest dividing up these one huge paragraphs into smaller ones? It would make an easier read.
