Struggling to Rewrite a Combat Scene

Welcome everyone!


For the second time in Book 3, I'm struggling to rewrite a fight scene. The first time, was at the beginning of the book. It turned out really well, and I'm happy with it now. We'll see what future beta readers say, though.

Anyway, with this second scene, I'm struggling ever harder. In this one, I introduce a new monster-type. It's not something major, just something you would expect to find in this setting. None-the-less, I am not happy with the ending of it.

I'm wondering if I should just cut it altogether. The purpose of the scene is to introduce the creature, but I wonder if it even needs an introduction. Book 3 is the longest yet in the series, and it might be in the interests of brevity to cut it.

I'm not sure what I'll do at this point. Wish me luck!
