Thank you for the opportunity to see your pages. Unfortunately, I don't feel I am the right agent for this project as it’s not my type of monster story, so I'm passing. Just because I wasn't quite drawn in, however, doesn't mean there isn't another agent out there who will love it. I wish you the best of luck on your writing journey!

She helpfully specified that she doesn't like post-apocalyptic stories, so mine wasn't a good fit.
