This is the current query I use... If you see an issue, let me know! (It's also the one I just sent to the Shark...)

Locarno's death delays Armageddon.

Born long ago, raised by a cabal of sorcerers, Locarno quickly becomes embroiled in a plot overseen by a rogue element of the church--Dies Irae--against which he must not fail, for he is mankind's only hope; and at stake is the loss of civilization itself. Revealed are the events leading to the possible "Day of Wrath" that Dies Irae wishes to bring forth--forcing God to disown humanity and wipe clean the slate of creation.

But Locarno is just a boy, not yet a man; and while he studies his secret sorcery, he soon gains the affections of Juliana, the daughter of one of his grandfather's inner circle, and love blooms. With their passion rising, so too does the danger. Compounding the threat that Dies Irae represents is the doubly troubling sudden appearance of feral vampires.

Captured, failed, and finally slain, Locarno rises as a Lord of Death, and his vengeance is truly profound; but for all his possessed prowess he may have only forestalled the inevitable.

MEMORIES OF THE DEAD, my first novel, a first-person narrative, is complete at 72,000 words and is aimed at the young-adult market.

Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind Regards,
