The author of the book featured most recently here would like feedback on the query revision below.Ana is a monster. She was born human like everyone else but one by one everyone else took on physical traits of the animal they were meant to be. Abandoned by her family and feared by everyone around her she has raised herself in the woods for eight years.
One day, her home is set on fire. Before the forest is destroyed, Ana manages to rescue a coyote girl named Arella and her dog brother Rae. Rather than fear her Rae and Arella sympathize, and even offer to let her travel with them. They are going to see a king who might be able to help Ana become like everyone else. She isn’t sure she can trust them but she doesn’t have any other options.
As they travel however, many obstacles arise on their journey. Rae and Arella turn out to be criminals working against the king, guards in every town are after them, and Ana finds herself suddenly displaying uncontrollable powers. Worst of all, the king has secret plans for Ana and her powers. In the end, Ana must decide who to trust in order to understand her powers and finally find peace.
Keeper of the Woods is a 56,000 word middle grade fantasy novel written as a trilogy. I look forward to hearing from you.
