Many thanks for sharing these opening chapters of XXX with me. There is much to admire here but ultimately I’m afraid I don’t think I’m the right match for this story. Agenting is very subjective, so I hope you do not find this discouraging. Wishing you the very best in your querying journey and writing career!
