I recently finished my novel The Delusion of Stars containing 59000 words spanned across 15 chapters. It explores the psychology of it's characters using superpowers. I had the idea because me and my friend have very different taste. He likes action while I prefer psychological, but for some reason, not many stories effectively combine the two. I also thought it would be interesting to use word play to make interesting observations and further explore ideas.

Synopsis:
One day, Allen wakes up from a strange dream. He is subjected to a series of supernatural events and concludes that he and some others may have superpowers. Meeting others like himself, the powers turn out to be more than he bargained for.

Allen walks a fine line between good and evil as he learns more about the people around him, and himself.

When given the opportunity to use a unique supernatural ability to achieve your goals, what sacrifices are you truly willing to make?



This story isn't what you normally find on this site. It's not a happy story, but I didn't make it to be edgy. It may be seen that way by some, but I used tragedy to explore different characters and their philosophies. Please don't go into the book thinking it's an action-fantasy. First and foremost it's a physiological-tragedy.


It takes a few chapters to get into the action, but after it kicks off, a lot happens each chapter.

As I just finished my book, but still don't have any reviews, I am looking for criticism and opinions on how well I executed the book.

Thank you!
