This actually isn't my first time with this query on this site. I was working on it a little under a month ago, but since then I've decided to take a break from querying with it (because it's so close to the holidays) and work on another project. But during that time, I figured it wouldn't hurt to put this back up here to get further feedback.
So, in general, any comments or critiques are welcome. I will happily return critiques on other people's queries. Thanks!
Dear <Insert Agent Name Here>,
John Walker is shocked when he kills a woman with his car and witnesses her fatal wounds heal.
After he takes her to a hospital, an alien light descends from the sky and destroys the entire building. Barely escaping with the woman he hit, John reunites with his father, a man he thought to be dead. His father delivers a grave revelation: a race of extradimensional beings imperils all of reality.
The beings are imprisoned in the void between dimensions and divided by civil war. Their war threatens to spill into our reality via cracks in the fabric of space and time. Among them, a single entity plots to widen the cracks and unleash those who want to escape the void. Once free, the extradimensional beings will obliterate anyone who stands in their way.
John struggles to forgive his father for his absence and questions his own place in a conflict older than humanity. That is, until he learns another truth. He, too, is an extradimensional being, and one of the few who can kill the entity. John must reconcile with his father and help him kill the being, but to attack it means certain death.
The woman he hit also questions her place in a war amid the cosmos. Her memories are gone, and she has no recollection of her identity. But when her memories resurface, a terrifying realization emerges: she may be the true enemy.
RUPTURED SKY is a science-fiction novel complete at 80,000 words. A character-driven story about loss, forgiveness and the importance of family, I believe the blend of sci-fi elements and traditional themes can appeal to broad audiences.
