Hello! It's been a while since I've taken a look at my query. It received good responses from the other writing forum I visit, but when I queried last year, I sent out 2 dozen emails without so much as a partial request or anything that even looked like it wasn't a form rejection. So, while I'm revising the book and hunting for beta readers, I figured I could also get some fresh eyes on the letter. EDIT: New version in post#16, for those interested. ________ At seventeen, Linda is finally an orphan. She'll shed no tears for the man who treated her like a mistake. But with him dead, Linda has inherited his enchanted blade and the family duty: keep Users and their vile magic out of the city. Users feed on human suffering to fuel their sorcery, fracturing their victims’ minds, driving most to suicide. Linda's friends are no strangers to depression and abuse, which makes them appetizing targets. Linda might be a rookie, but if it means safeguarding the ones she loves, she won't hesitate to hunt the enemy down. Linda tracks the Users’ trail of victims to a rich high-rise and storms in blade first, only to find her closest friend among their ranks. Turns out Users don’t just harvest suffering from the slums. It’s also where they recruit. Even if Linda musters the strength to take her friend’s life, she can’t kill Users faster than they’re replaced. Not by herself. Damn good thing her father had more than one blade. And more than one daughter. SISTER BLADES is an urban fantasy novel, complete at 90k words.
