Okay, so I'm very far away from needing a query, only now wading into the second draft of my MS and anticipate it being a good few years before I'm ready to attempt getting published. I've knocked this up as an excersise to help me focus and because I've been reading alot of query critiques lately, both here and on the excellent Query Shark site. Please feel free to be brutal . I'm aware that my grammar is not up to the standards it needs to be, and continue to strive to improve; So commentary on grammatical errors is always appreciated - its the only way I'll learn despite Mr. Strunk's best efforts. Primary school teacher Elsie Clarke discovers that she has magic and is visited by a Middleman from the AMP (Association of Magical Practitioners). Everything seems wonderful until they discover that one of her fledgling gifts is prophecy, because something is killing prophets. Elsie needs to use her new power, and pierce the veil that hangs over the future to uncover who wants her dead and why. Colwin Throssle, a wizard with the unusual ability to control water, has been a Middleman for six months. Standing between the magical community and everything else the Middlemen are underpaid, undermanned, and unappreciated - more social workers than police. Then there are the last five years which Colwin really does not want to think about, got married, moved abroad, painful breakup, but the details are weirdly vague. Now he needs to keep Elsie alive, and teach her what magic he can, until he can palm her off as someone else's apprentice. Together Elsie and Colwin fend of the attacks of an organization known only as The Unseen, a group of magic users who have achieved immortality and periodically destroy any magical institution that might rival their power. The Unseen plan to destroy the AMP at its upcoming 50th anniversary celebrations, which will see the bulk of the magical community gathered. Only a living prophet can hope to foresee the terrible nature of their attack. Even as this happens goblin asylum seekers are pouring through into England as terrible powers stir in faerie. And one of those terrible powers is Colwin's ex, who would not be thrilled to see him practising his awkward charms upon his new apprentice. Because his faerie Princess is in the running to become a faerie Queen, and faeries don't believe in divorce. Wet Knight is a 100,000 word(ish) urban fantasy novel that will appeal to fans of Jim Butcher's Dresden Files or Kevin Ahearne's Iron Druid Chronicles.
