Describing a book with a question

One of the newer things I've been trying to do is to come up with a one or two sentence description of each WIP I have floating around in my head. So far, I've come up with two ways to do this.

First is the straightforward summary of the highest story arc.

The second is by asking a question that sums up a main character conflict of the book.

Here's the question I've come up with so far for my current WIP:

What if the only way to save your family's throne was to betray it?

I like it so far. It can be tweaked a couple of different ways but the above pretty much nails the inner conflict of one of my POV characters.

I like it. I'm really awful at the summarize anything in one or two sentences thing, and I've been a technical writer for nearly ten years. I'm mostly working on short fiction these days, but I may see what I can come up with, just to get some practice in. *g*
