Elise Fallson's Current Query

Today we have the lovely and adorable Elise Fallson, with her very first query. Please be sure to visit her blog, and become a follower. Back?

Here's her query:

Dear Agent,

When a mysterious caller offers twenty-three-year-old Edessa Scottwood information about her mother’s death, Edessa doesn’t think twice about secretly meeting the contact. She’s desperate for answers and would meet them on the moon if she had to. There’s only one catch, in exchange for information, the contact wants the Anchor protein her mother was working on. Trouble is, Edessa doesn’t know a damn thing about the protein and when she comes up empty-handed, the contact tries to kill her, with magic. It turns out, Edessa’s mother kept many secrets, like the fact Edessa was born a witch. Oh, and here’s another, vampires are real, and one of them just saved Edessa’s life.

Following the attack, Edessa is taken to her estranged aunt’s house where she meets an extraordinary family she never knew she had, discovers powers she never thought possible, and develops feelings for a vampire that makes her heart do triple flips against her better judgment. But everything changes when Edessa discovers her mother’s research is being replicated by vampires of the House of the Immortal Blood. If they succeed, they’ll have the power to visually mark human carriers of the vampire gene and bring chaos to the world. One person can stop the House, the Witch of War. No one knows who she is, but many already want her dead.

Determined, Edessa will do whatever it takes, even if that means risking her life, dealing with treacherous immortals, or traveling halfway across the world to Paris with a vampire haunted by his own dark secrets. But will Edessa’s newly emerging powers be strong enough to stop the House or will they succeed and climb to the top of the food chain instead? Her success will ride on her ability to trust her instincts, and her willingness to believe in herself.

THE FALLING WITCH is a 90,000 word New Adult novel with series potential.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

That's it.

Please thank Elise for having the courage to share this with us, but save your feedback for tomorrow.
