The Lightbringer: Theodora Morgan knows she s a little strange. Her talent for healing has marked her as different all through a life spent moving from town to town when someone notices her strangeness. Now she has a home, and she doesn t want to leave but she s been found. The Crusade wants her dead because she s psychic, the Dark wants to feed on her talent, and then there s Dante. Tall and grim and armed with black-bladed knives, guns, and a sword, he says he s here to protect her. But what if he s what Theo needs protection from most? The Watcher: Dante is a Watcher, sworn by Circle Lightfall to protect the Lightbringers. His next assignment? Watch over Theo. She doesn t know she s a Lightbringer, she doesn t know she s surrounded by enemies, and she doesn t know she s been marked for death by a bunch of fanatics. He can t protect her if she doesn t trust him, but how can she possibly trust a man scarred by murder and warfare a man who smells like the same Darkness Theo has been running from all her life? Bounced around the world as a military brat, Lilith Saintcrow fell in love with writing in second grade and never looked back. She currently resides in Vancouver, Washington, with two children, a menagerie, and books. Find her on the web at lilithsaintcrow.com.
