Hi! So I'm ultimately confused on whether my book is dystopian, fantasy, speculative fiction? Like, I'm not sure how to narrow it down. First off, it is YA fiction. It's in our world, in the far future, and while book one is set on a pastoral, peaceful province, this province is connected to a toxic, sick, and more advanced mainland. This makes me think dystopian, my protagonist joins a squadron to defend her home. However, she is defending her home from humans that came from the mainland with a mutation that makes them different: they need to consume life force to survive. Aka, they drink blood to drink the life force inside of it basically. (they're not vampires!! agh, lol.) but since it is caused by a virus is that speculative fiction? Fantasy since this virus nor those infected humans exist?! Agh. I'm sorry, identifying genres is clearly not a strong suit of mine. Thank you for reading this jumbled mess!! Basically, in a query letter for example, what would I call this?!
