The story for the query you are about to read is one of my first ones ever written. I scanned through it, brushing up on the story for this post. Man, I have a huge plot hole in it! I still enjoy the story and maybe one day I'll put it through rewrites or come up with a title for it! I'm horrible at titles. Maybe that should be my T post. This is also my first attempt at writing a query for this story which I've learned is equivalent with being awful. Writing the story is easy, writing the query is hard!
All Caleb wants is acceptance.
Left alone in a dark alley covered in his mother's blood Caleb is discovered by a nun and kind priest. Taken in at the Sacred Heart Orphanage Caleb struggles to understand himself. He knows he's not like the other children. Thirst burns in his throat and a desire to sink his teeth into the other children fills his thoughts. Eventually he discovers his true nature, that of a vampire.
When Lauren, her twin brother Danny and their little sister Lee arrive at the orphanage, Caleb can't keep his eyes off her. He's intrigued by the smell and sight of her, curious about the mystery surrounding their parents deaths that has all the marks of a vampire attack. Despite discovering what Caleb is, Lauren feels drawn to him and their relationship blooms.
Forced to leave his home and Lauren behind, Caleb is hunted by his own kind. Their reason for wanting him destroyed: You were born. Only when he meets other vampires, one claiming to be born like he was does he learn about the vampire world. Any vampire born is hunted down and destroyed and his new friends have been running all their lives. The race to stay one step ahead of the turned vampires leads them across the country and finally back to Caleb's home at the orphanage.
The reunion with his family and Lauren is bittersweet. Three vampires brothers are planning on a world coup, usurping humans as the superior race. Joining the born vampires and turned vampires, Caleb works to infiltrate the vampire government and help free the human race. One wrong move means his death. Or more importantly, the death of Lauren.
