Here's her query:
The whole thing had to be a cruel joke.
Growing up the prince of a small island, everyone always told Andren how lucky he was, and they looked on with jealousy. But his life was far from picturesque. His parents were both dead, which meant he barely got to see his older brother anymore due to his kingly duties. He was required to attend parties where irritating nobles dressed lavishly, so he rarely got to hunt. And he was turned into a monster through sorcery, so he never got to spend time with Eiva.
Then Eiva, a canny sorceress who wears robes instead of frippery, lifts the curse on Andren. Still he feels choked by the evil acts he commited during his transformation, so he runs away from the memories by travelling out into the mainland. What he finds there are different people all living in poverty and fear, victims of a ruthless emporer. Andren is outraged, and he makes it his goal to unite the quarrelous nations in war and take out the most powerful being in the known world. Perhaps once he's done saving them, he can let go of his self hate.
FROM HALVMANE'S SHORE is a fantasy novel complete at 80,000 words. I also have a finished novella prequel and two other novels in outlining stages. I believe it will appeal to readers who enjoy complex characters that test what it is to be human, such as in Faith of the Fallen by Terry Goodkind. If you are interested in my query, I have a polished manuscript ready to send.
Thank you very much for your consideration.
Please save your feedback for tomorrow, thank Laura for sharing, and have a great Thursday!
