Synopsis
An urban fantasy paranormal romance set in a unique, gritty version of Earth, populated by a second race of beings called seers, the Allie’s War series centers on the relationship of a strong female protagonist, Allie Taylor, and her antihero guide, Dehgoies Revik. Falling into the new adult genre of books, the Allie’s War series takes place in a modern version of Earth you’ve never seen, that spans centuries along with the lives of its main characters, the seers, and the wars they fight with themselves and their human allies and enemies, (steamy sex scenes in parts!).

Book One: Twenty-eight-year-old San Francisco native, Allie Taylor, at least thought she was human. Against a gritty and original backdrop of a modern-day Earth populated by a second race of beings, Allie is forced to deal with the fact that she's a member of an enslaved yet deeply powerful race, who believe her to be their most venerated leader, come to end the reign of humanity. With her guide, Revik, a mysterious and deadly seer who acts as her bodyguard and teacher, Allie is forced to come to grips with who she really is, or end up a slave like the rest of her kind...or worse, betray the very people she always thought of as her own.


From reviews:

"Be forewarned, once you get started, you will be hooked on the series!”
--Coral Russell, Alchemy of Scrawl, Indie Book Reviews

“Rook starts out strong, pulls you into a vortex, and leaves your head spinning! While this paperback is 396 pages, I finished it in 24 hours, hardly wanting to put it down. There are so many levels to this story: Eastern religion and mythology, mind numbing technology, good versus evil, alternate existence, and even a powerful love story...and such strong chemistry between Allie and her guide, Revik, that it takes your breath away. With Rook being the first of a series, I will definitely be looking forward to the rest of the saga.”
--Charlene Mabie-Gable, Literary R&R

“The storyline is very original, as in the entire concept of the novel, and it’s filled with more backstabbing betrayal, twist and turns than I even thought possible…don’t hesitate to read this book: it will definitely NOT disappoint you.””
--Majanka Verstraete, I <3 Reading

Back Cover Copy:

“You are the Bridge...”

Twenty-eight-year-old San Francisco native, Allie Taylor, knew she had issues…but she at least thought she was human. In her version of modern day Earth, a second race of human-like beings called seers were discovered in Asia in the early 1900s. Since then, they have fought in two world wars and live alongside humans as second-class citizens.

So when Allie meets her first, real, flesh-and-blood seer, she's not exactly thrilled when he tells her that she's a seer like him. Not only that, but according to him, all the other seers believe she's going to end the world.

Worse, no matter what she does, everything that happens after that only seems to prove him right.
