This is by no means a complete query letter. I'm just trying to get some feedback if I summarized my novel well enough to interest someone. Without saying anything else, here's what I have so far. Dear , [Reason why I’m querying a particular agent. This part, I want to make personal to each agent] I would like to introduce you to my 115,000 word fantasy novel entitled The Princess of Helmsheim. The novel focuses around Ingrid, a princess who was forced into hiding after she’s accused of murdering the prince of a neighboring kingdom. While on the run, Ingrid serves as an agent for her sister, the queen and comes across a conspiracy to overthrow the kingdom. Unfortunately, Ingrid’s discovery comes too late to save her sister’s husband and children. In one last effort to save her kingdom from war, Ingrid is tasked to kill the king’s brother, suspected of plotting the assassination. There is just one problem: there’s no proof he had any involvement and so to kill him would destroy every belief Ingrid ever had concerning justice. So this by no means represents my entire novel. Don't get me wrong, it doesn't misrepresent it. It's the general gist minus all the twists and turns. But I don't think that's what I'm supposed to do anyway. If I'm understanding query letters correctly, the point is to make a case to at least look at the novel and consider representing it. I hope I'm right on that.
