22. Faith and Vampyres

As seen in
Refine the info-dump about the past: Instead of a long explanation, consider weaving details about Albion's past into the present narrative through his thoughts or conversations.   Deepen Albion's emotional state: We see glimpses of Albion's loneliness and struggle, but delve deeper. Let the reader feel his internal conflict.   Explore Olivia's motivations: We know she cares for Albion, but why? Is it just because she knew him as a child?   Give the possessed more humanity: Right now they are faceless victims. Give them a glimpse of their inner lives to make Albion's choice to feed on them more complex.   Raise the stakes for Albion: Currently, the biggest danger seems to be the annoyance of the Bishop. Consider introducing a threat to Albion's secret or a more dangerous enemy.   Focus on the danger posed by the "possessed": We are told they are evil, but not why. Show the dangers they pose to heighten the tension around Albion's work.   Add conflict to the bar scene: The scene at the bar feels idyllic. Consider adding a complication to raise the stakes, perhaps someone suspicious of Albion or a potential problem with Gus.
