Margo Grisby just became the next victim of her small town's chilling disappearances. She awakens in the alternate world and vivacious paradise of Jamyria. But the beauty of the world masks an unsettling secret: it's been created by a Mark-a person who bears a symbol on their skin which grants them unlimited power. 

Unlike the other occupants of Jamyria, Margo is destined to enter. Every fifty years a man is gifted with a mark of power in hopes of destroying the gateway between worlds and freeing its people. This time, fate chose her: a sixteen-year-old girl. But regardless of gender or age, the people trapped in the world see Margo as their only hope for the next fifty years. The creator and queen of Jamyria, on the other hand, sees Margo as her latest threat and has ordered to have her hunted down. 

And Margo? She sees Jamyria as an escape from the nightmares she left behind in the real world, and deep down she's beginning to question if she wants to leave this world at all.

This description is perfect. I feel like I'm there, experiencing his pain.
I love that you can already feel the tension of the story, but it is done in such a way that this does not sound awkward in any way. Reading this, it feels right to introduce the story in such a way.
There is so much emotion in this that you are able to completely draw the reader in and make them feel the emotions of your characters.
This was amazing!! The descriptions were just beautiful and the action had my heart pounding. You definitely know how to hook readers in 😃
This is a definite hook! So many stories start out and I am bored just reading the first sentence. With this, you have definitely grabbed my attention. I definitely want to read more. Excellent job!
