So this is a new attempt at writing a query with a new title and a new approach.
If you want, you can check out my previous versions and the comments at: http://agentquerycon...64/#entry334403
I have not included the fact that this is 1st in an 8 part series here, as I have learned that it is not the correct practice.
The latest version is given below:
On the eve of Valentine's Day, all that twenty-something Karan wanted, was to confess his love to the girl of his dreams. But when she displays bio-luminescence and levitates, he realizes that his whole life has been a manipulated lie.
When she reveals her extra-terrestrial origins to him, she confesses that she had manipulated him to get his help in stopping a galactic civil war. A war that was stopped before and became the basis of many human mythologies, because of a demigod whose genes Karan's possesses.
A revelation of one's connections to "gods" and possession of telepathic abilities would have elated anyone else. But all Karan could think of was her deception and his broken heart.
When he confides his pain with his best friend, he is shattered further by learning that their friendship was also a sham continued through generations, so that Karan’s ancestral telepathic genes stay protected.
With his ideal life turning out to be a farce and a galactic destruction looming, Karan is forced to make a choice: listen to his heart and condemn the ones that lied to him and acting as the reason for billions of deaths, or ignoring his emotions and try to save the galaxy by facing the monsters that even the gods are petrified of.
The Subjugator is a 100,000 word YA/fantasy novel with elements of science-fiction and Hindu mythology. <<<Will add another book comparison here>>>. It also has the mythology-reality bridge like the Shiva trilogy by Amish Tripathi.
