This is my first attempt at a query letter, so any constructive feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
Twenty-four-year-old Blake O'Connor's life seems to be going nowhere fast, even for a deep-space polonium miner. The woman he loves is millions of miles away on Earth, and life on an isolated asteroid leaves much to be desired. But that's all about to change.
When Blake and his friend Marcus Stone are framed for a crime they couldn't possibly have commit, they are forced to flee for their lives in an attempt to clear their names. However they find much more than they bargained for when they begin to uncover a sinister conspiracy involving planetary leaders, organized crime lords, and genetically-modified super-humans, all bent on achieving their own ends by any means necessary. What follows is an epic, galaxy-spanning journey so perilous and moving, time itself may no longer be safe.
"Continuum" is a 100,000-word science fiction novel filled with vivid characters, intense mystery, exciting action, and plenty of humor. It will appeal to fans of J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows as well as Isaac Asimov's The End of Eternity.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
