My Query Letter

Dear Sir or Madam,

When Emma Harrison decided to search for her Birthparents she never thought it would lead her into a world of magic, mystery, love and a legendary prophecy come to life.

Emma was adopted at birth and raised in a world where magic only existed on TV. While trying to decide if she is going to search for her Birthparents Emma meets James the mayor’s nephew.  He soon becomes her total focus. After a near tragedy happens with James it leads her to the discovery that she has magical powers. She also learns that she is at the center of an ancient prophecy, the Amulet. Simon, a guide sent by the Witches Council interjects himself into her life to teach her all about the magical world. His most important task is safeguarding her from the powerful Wicked and their leader Asher, who wants Emma’s magic for himself. James, who has a secret of his own, puts her directly in the dangerous path of the Wicked. Emma faces danger around every corner, while trying to keep those she loves safe. While learning about the world of magic she was born into she faces growing feelings for her guide and the knowledge that she is forbidden to be with the mortal boy she loves. She is forced to choose between a normal life and a life full of magic and unlimited power all before her 18th birthday.

The Amulet is a finished 86,000 word YA novel. I appreciate your time and attention.
