We're preparing a query - belong is the blurb that we'll put into the letter. If you were an agent and you read that - would it interest you? Would you request sample chapters based on this? (I know it doesn't follow standard query style, it's okay, as long as it works as a tool to pique your interest. It's written in first person because that's how the book's written where two characters alternate chapters) ****** A slave marked for death… I run into the most impoverished level of our walled city, where poisons and toxins swirl in oily black puddles on the streets, and people are gathering in a square in line for food. But they can’t be here. I scream at them to get out, and the world explodes. A Level 1 nonentity… She breaks into my life like a shard of sunlight shining in a squalid world just before the square explodes. Staggering out of the rubble, she offers me a month of health to get her back out of Level 1. Only thing is, she’s marked for death by a powerful man; she’s got protectors on her tail; her former master has been mind-wiped; and I have a sister to protect. I should refuse, should leave her mired in her own troubles. But there’s no one else to save her. So I take the month of health and do my damnedest to save her myself. Good thing, too, because if I get her to the lab on Level 3, her research might be the key to finding the cure for the virus that dooms us all to die at twenty-six. If I can keep her alive that long.
