Hello All. After almost a year-long hiatus, I've decided to have my Query Letter reviewed again. As always, any comment is much appreciated.
Jack Disor used to spend his free time devouring fantasy books; now he's trapped in a world where Earth is considered a fairytale.
On the eve of Jackís eleventh birthday, rumors begin to spread of a pagan ruin found in the forest near his tiny city. While his scientist parents dismiss such folklore, he sneaks out to see it before the superstitious locals tear it down. But what he uncovers is a passage to the world of Zajitar, and no way of returning home.
At first, Jack is awestruck by Zajitarís lakes in the sky, kilometer-high castles, and a moon hovering only dozens of feet off the ground. He befriends a lovelorn shape-shifter and her prophetess sister who tell him that Zajitar is in the midst of a centuries-old war between magic and technology.
As the war intensifies, Jack's only hope of ever getting home is a soldier slowly turning to stone. But when the warring leaders discover that he is from the mythical world of 'Earth,' the war suddenly becomes all about him.
THE BOY FROM EARTH is a 59,000-word middle grade fantasy with crossover potential to young adult fantasy.
Thank you for reading my query letter.
