“And Death will live among them in the guise of a child…”

Grappling with her new identity as “Bridge,” a being meant to herald the end for all of humanity, isn’t even Allie’s biggest problem. A new set of rules around Seer culture and her relationship with the infamous Seer infiltrator, Revik, keep getting her in trouble, and the power-hungry Rook she helped put in the White House wants war with China.

Then the boy appears. A sociopath with all of the energetic markings of Syrimne, a deadly telekinetic who killed thousands during World War I, he doesn’t appear to have aged in one hundred years.

Worse, he thinks Allie belongs to him.

NOTE: An alternate version of this book was previously published as part of in the “ALLIE’S WAR” series (this version has been revised/edited prior to re-release).

Standalone novel. No cliffhanger.

SHIELD is book 2 in the Bridge & Sword series. It is also related to the Quentin Black World, and takes place in the wider history/world of the seers.
