Hey guys, please take a look and let me know what you think of my query letter! Any and all feedback appreciated! Do you know what a Rakshasha is? No? Well consider yourself lucky. Up until a few weeks ago neither did Amar Modhi. He was just a regular 16-year-old kid in New York City. His biggest concerns in life were talking to girls, balancing school and his part time job, and trying to get into college. That all changed when Amar came face to face with an ancient Hindu Demon that wasn't supposed to be real. Now he's smack dab in the middle of a millennia-spanning conflict between warring factions of the Hindu Pantheon. Under the tutelage of a restaurant owner who is more than meets the eye, Amar has to figure out how to stop these monsters from the past before they destroy his city. Rakshashas in Red Hook is an 80,000-word novel combining elements of Indian Mythology with a contemporary look at South Asian identity in an ever-changing America. The novel also explores more universal themes of identity, coming into adulthood, and finding one’s place in the world. A little about me: I'm a US Army Officer and this is my first novel. The idea for this book came from serving in Afghanistan where I read the Ramayana and Bhagavad Gita in between missions. I have four other novels mapped out in the same setting, as well as a prequel set in the WWII era. I hope you will join me in bringing this unique story to a wider audience. Thanks for taking the time to review my query. I look forward to hearing from you.
