AYARIS: A steampunk nation in its renaissance, under the thumb of the oppressive god Tan-Milar. (that's what...the mission statement of Ayaris?)
After the turmoil of her university days, all Yuri Rynn wants is a simple life for herself and her son Vandt in Ayaris's capital city. But when an earthquake exposes a spatial anomaly that consumes everything that enters it, Vandt's father Ien, the university chancellor, draws her into the investigation of the anomaly.
Yuri uses her mathematical talents to decipher the anomaly's mysteries and unleash its hidden potential. Unfortunately, that potential is the power of a god, which is a curse when you don't know what you're doing. Soon, Yuri finds her life in tatters -- Vandt imprisoned, Ien dead, those who trusted her slain, and the city of her birth in ruins. Fearful of divine retribution and questioning the nature of her own reality, she uses the anomaly to set out to destroy the only god she's ever known -- in his own world.
"Soulscape" takes readers on an journey through nested realities. From the slums of Milare to the orbital colony of Megiddo and the fragmented mind of a universe-spanning consciousness, Soulscape challenges concepts of reality, the meaning of faith, and the nature of thought. Struggling against secret police, fundamentalist separatists, and embodied pieces of her own mind, Yuri must find a way to cope with living inside a twisted world created by her actions.
Only through the love of her homeland and her son will she stand a chance.
You can lose the entire third paragraph of course.
You don't give us a compelling reason for any of this to happen (draws her into the investigation of the anomaly).
A hook is compelling. This is just a recitation with no motivation.
