NOTE: This is a "New Adult" novel. Due to mature content this title is recommended for ages 17+

Synopsis: As members of the Phoenix, Jeric and Leni are thrust into their new lives, expected to lead Earth’s Guardians. But Leni struggles with trusting her own soul, and Jeric is more concerned about keeping Leni safe than meeting others’ demands. When Darkness swarms Lake Haven, they embark on their first mission with little preparation and no idea which soul the Dark hunts.

Born and raised in Lake Haven, Bex hopes to escape her small-town life, ideally in the arms of her soul mate. She knows he exists, and her heart aches with the need to find him. When her long-lost mama calls to announce she's knockin' on death's door, Bex reluctantly makes the trip to see the uncaring bitch (bless her heart), only to be knocked off her feet by the sexy and charming Dr. Mason Hayes. Is he really The One?

Leni’s soul felt an instant connection to Bex, but if Bex found her soul mate, she isn’t their mission. So who is, and why does Leni instinctively feel drawn to her? Can Leni even trust her intuition? And will Jeric step up and lead when the time comes orcontinue to hold them back?

If they don't learn to trust themselves and each other quickly, Darkness will claim them all…along with the rest of Earth’s souls.

About Kristie:

If you were going for a walk with Kristie, what might cause you to run away screaming?

Kristie telling me she was going to kill Tristan and Alexis off. --Jenny F.

Nothing! She's a cute as a pie! I would never un away from her! --Inga 

I would run away screaming...if her eyes started glowing and she tried to put me into some sort of supernatural trance. --Kelly V.

If we stumbled across maggots, Kristie would be on her own.lo --Lisa M.

If she told me she wasn’t writing anymore Soul Savers or Book of Phoenix! --Julie B.
If she told me she were Demoni!! --Kat W.

Any of the Daemoni! --Sue V.

Lucas shows up to drag one of us to Hades --Felicia

Going for a walk I'd run the other way screaming when the of birds come calling on Kristie --Stacey N.

A really fugly ass daemoni!! I want those hot badboys to be following us and making us scream in the good way :P --Josephine M.

If Kristie stripped and started running though the centre of town. --Debbie P.

If Kristie decided to morph into one of her characters, but of the evil side --Jennifer S.

Seeing Kristie turn into Daemoni! --Heather B.

Seeing that the demoni where real and out to get us lol! --Char

If you could hang out with Kristie for a day in your town, how would you spend the day?

I would take her to the pub and show her around the cool places I'd think she could write into her books. --Jenny F.

I would probably drag her to the most fun sightseeing in Tallinn, will take her to the bookstores and make sure there would be book events with her, so she could introduce her books to our readers, and introduce her to my friends, probably a quick trip to the island where I'm from. Oh God, I would have a programm for at least a week! I would definitely show her the nightlife here as well. She wouldn't want to miss that. ;) --Inga 

We would start out by going hiking, get breakfast at the cool little train car, spend the day going around the town to all the different book stores market her books, then we could relax in the sun and drink beer at one of the many different brewerys around town. --Kelly V.

We would chill by my pool and then go out for lunch at Chipotle. --Lisa M.

Would it be wrong to say I’d recreate the scene from “Misery” --Julie B.

An author like Kristie has so many characters rolling round her head it would have to be a day at the spa! Tea and cake and massages, nails, hair etc done. --Kat W.

I would escort her around Detroit in a full length limo! Many fine places to visit in Detroit. --Sue V.

Hangout downtown (the strip) eat some good food and have a few good drinks. --Felicia

The day with Kristie would be easy , I want to take her to Whitby like in wrath fish and chips walk round the abbey and ground and maybe a English picnic . --Stacey N.

I live in London and would therefore go down to the Embankment and go to the London Dungeons and then on the London eye. Then a night of drinking and spotting eye candy and thinking what character they remind us of or what they would be.  --Josephine M.

I did have a day with Kristie and Chrissi last year and I'm so sorry I didn't take them on the Mersey ferry, and the Beatles Museum We went on the Duck boat but it didn't go in the water, I thought it was rubbish. --Debbie P.

I would show her some sites around town but the whole time explaining to her why we should create a Frankenstein of Tristan. --Jennifer S.

I would take Kristie rafting on our wonderful river and enjoy the day relaxing on the water! --Heather B.

I know Kristie isn't comfortable in big groups, so probably do something just the two of us. Sight seeing in Savannah. Go to Savannah Sweets and get some chocolate. Go see Rincon, since I live 5 minutes from the town that was in Wrath. Or just hang out and relax. --Jeana T.

Why would I want to hang out in my town??  There’s nothing but corn fields and cows…I would much rather hang out in her town! --Michelle L.

My town is a dessert nothing much here so we would probably go dirt bike riding or I could borrow a couple of horses from a neighbor.  Then we could sit on the porch and have a drink so she could experience the beautiful dessert sunsets we have here and talk about some similarities in our life’s.. --Char

I think she is a confident woman but I would say her tummy? No, I just said what I would say lol  --Josephine M.

Eyes. Because sometimes she just can't see herself kill off more characters. --Jennifer S.

Have no idea but since this is supposed to be funny I'll go with the butt! Because people go # 2!!!  --Heather B.

I'm going to say her butt.... because not a lot of girls like their butts! BUT... I think Kristie is cute... butt and all! Because she has 3 boys, and kids make everything bigger  --Jeana T.

I am going to go with feet… seems to be something a lot of people dislike. Ex boyfriend wanted her to suck on his ugly toes?  --Char

What one thing would you like to know about Kristie?

I would cook, fajitas. --Kelly V.

I would cook a traditional arabic dish for her. --Lisa M.

A very British Sunday Dinner with Yorkie Puds --Julie B.

I would make her an Eaton Mess as it reminds me of her books, colourful, fruity, powerful, creamy, smooth yet rough and so scrumdidlyumptious! --Kat W.

My specialty is lasagna and garlic bread. --Sue V.

I'd cook tortellini Alfredo (one of my specialities) --Felicia

Proper Liverpool Scouse. --Debbie P.

My homemade spaghetti, I've heard it's awesome. --Jennifer S.

My Hawaiian meatballs because they're awesome! --Heather B.

I know that she likes Tristans sausage, so I would make something with sausage and a bunch of chocolate treats --Jeana T.

Well, since I can’t cook, or lets rephrase that, since I hate to cook, it would probably be something out of a box. Like Mac and Cheese or hamburger helper. --Michelle L.

Mmm,  I make a pretty mean enchilada dinner --Char

Kristie and the Man are about to become empty nesters. Any advice for them?

Kristie and the Man are about to become empty nesters. Any advice for them? Writing, travelling, good sex, spa visits, spoiling yourself and each other. --Inga

Advice, become active in the community and do not isolate in the house. --Kelly V.

Keep yourselves busy. --Lisa M.

ENJOY!!! --Julie B.

Say your goodbyes, spend a day in your PJ's then get to know your husband all over again.  It will be hard to have conversations that isn't child related or book related. --Kat W.

Live your life like you could not do when you were raising your kids! --Sue V.

It's hardest when the youngest leaves, but it's good for them to grow into the man you want them to be. My best advice just be there for them when they fall, and be the one to help them up.  --Felicia

The negs is empty now Nate Austin and zac have gone quick move and don't leave forwarding address come to uk ;) .. No live a little enjoy yourself with your new found freedom . --Stacey N.

Enjoy it, because one of the boys will come back at sometime in the future. Or leave home and not leave a forwarding address. Run off to the Amadis Island. --Debbie P.

Keep busy with books and have fun with eachother. --Jennifer S.

Travel, have fun and hopefully keep writing while doing that! --Heather B.

Enjoy... (I have a long ways to go!) --Jeana T.

Run around the house naked.  And If I was Kristie, since she has all boys, I would pee with the bathroom door open because really, when is the last time you got to do that??? --Michelle L.

Enjoy each other more like you did before the babies came along and make that call to the boys everyday and try to see them as much as possible. --Char
