First Chapters: Fourth Wing (with Savannah Gilbo)

Abigail is back with book coach and editor Savannah Gilbo!

Today, Abigail and Savannah analyze the first chapter of the bestselling fantasy novel FOURTH WING by Rebecca Yarros. Together, they discuss why these opening pages hook readers and set up big picture expectations for the story. Some key elements they take deep dives on include:

  • How to raise the stakes (and why they're so important)
  • Structuring multiple scenes in a single chapter
  • Romantasy as a genre and New Adult as a category
  • Character development and relationships
  • Plus, more!

Come study this popular fantasy novel with Savannah and Abigail and let us know why you think the opening pages hook readers.
