Guardians – Released and Rated

As the book tour ends for Guardians release, I’ve become contemplative about the journey thus far. I’ve had to answer why I came up with this story, and what the Light and darkness really mean to me. I’m not sure I will ever be able to answer the why other than I had a dream that brushed the surface of what Guardians became. My dream inspired this story, and I’ve enjoyed developing it, but why is a very heavy question.

A question I know I can answer is what the Light and darkness mean to me. That’s easy. Light is the goodness of the world, the strength to overcome any fear or temptation. Light is perfection that we all wish to achieve, and what I love most about it is Light is life, so it is within us all.

Darkness, or Midnight, is the evil of the world. It consumes people until they are controlled by it. It closely resembles someone who has succumbed to a battle of one of the deadly sins. They may deny it, but their greed, gluttony, or pride controls their every decision.

I’ve known many people who have fallen to their vices, specifically drugs, but there have been too few that have come back from their stint in darkness to a life better than before. Those with survival stories talk about being saved from their battles by finding something or someone that brought them back to the light of life. These stories have also amazed me. Thus, Light and darkness, and the basis of the why.

I’m really not this deep, but this story really speaks to the testament of human will. Riley faces darkness in ways most people never have to, but she keeps fighting to stay in the Light. Every day people battle with pain and afflictions, but we can overcome them and live a life greater we ever imagined.

Guardians – Meet Reymend!

rey1Reymend may be able to blend in with the students at Bradford University, but he is nothing like an average mortal. He’s an immortal teen, a warrior for the Light, a Guardian against the darkness of Midnight. He protects mortals until they reach Guardian age, and his next Charge is Riley.

She doesn’t know it yet, but her Light, the essence within every living being’s soul, is stronger than most. Keeping her safe should be easy, but Rey’s never seen the shadows of Midnight so attracted to a mortal before. It’s never a dull moment with her as his Charge, fighting off the darkness. Midnight’s minions find her irresistible, but Rey is like a moth to the flame.

Guardians Proof two

In the everlasting life of an immortal Guardian, three things always ring true. Never become involved in your Charge’s every day life. Never touch your Charge. And never allow a Connection to manifest. Rey broke the first rule, bent the second, and has tried desperately not to allow the third to happen, but Riley’s Light calls to him. A Guardian isn’t supposed to know anything other than honor and valor, but now that Riley is in his life, regardless of his Guardianship, he’s willing to do anything to keep her.

You can save her. Follow your Light.

A whisper on the wind Rey has heard in his mind as if it were his own thoughts more times than he can count since she became his charge. He knows Riley is in danger. He knows he’s the only one who can protect her from Midnight’s bidders, but who was going to protect her from him?
