I am currently drafting the body of my query letter. I would really appreciate some fresh eyes to read it. If something sticks out as confusing or unclear, please let me know! Thanks in advance:
When Willa DePott is left for dead in her swimming pool, she awakens to live another day. Gabriel, the boy who found her, breaks the news that she is a vampire, he is her brother, and that the only way to survive is to go underground.
Newborn Nests has revolutionized the vampire experience. 21st century vampires have traded Gothic traditions for a cold, subterranean existence. Willa and Gabriel are part of the new wave, a frightened generation at the mercy of solar-powered weapons. Humans are fighting back. And the world Willa once knew is now against her.
Willa cannot stay in Newborn Nests while her maker is still unaccounted for. She makes it her mission to find the woman who took everything from her. But first, Willa and Gabriel must partake in a quest to find the other vampires their maker has abandoned. This cross-country search shatters Willa’s worldview entirely, taking her into the heart of the rapidly changing underworld where no vampire is safe.
If she is to be successful, Willa must take her place in the vampire family. Her freedom depends entirely on her ability to play the role designed for her: the perfect daughter. This is a prison that may prove impossible to escape.
