Dear Mystery Agent,
While sleep refreshes others, it leaves seventeen-year-old Samantha Sanders sick, confused, and lusting for a human-like monster who kills for pleasure. Awake, Sam discovers the nightmares are more than mere imagination. The deaths are real, and are happening too close to home to be coincidence.
Searching for answers, Sam turns to family friend, twenty-one-year-old Andrew Clearwater. When she learns they belong to an ancient line of Cherokee Protectors who fight monsters from legend, Sam must hone the skills she’s developed as a black-belt in order to aid in the battle. As they learn to work together, Sam and Andrew find there is more to fight than just monsters—their attraction to each other hinders their ability to fulfill their duties as Protectors and their capacity to rid Sam of the monster who stalks her dreams.
Though LEGEND OF THE PROTECTORS will appeal to the readers who love the romance in Twilight, it is not another vampire story. Loosely based on the Cherokee Legend The Stone Shield, this young adult urban fantasy is complete at 92,000 words.
