Urban Fantasy
Date Published: November 13, 2013

The world is dying. Everyone feels it, and yet, no one knows.
They said that when the end was near, a Bridge would come, and lead them out of the darkness of that dying world.
Allie Taylor's life was relatively normal...
Until Revik showed up.
And told her she was that Bridge.

 ROOK: Allie's War Episodes 1-4
"You are the Bridge..."

Like most humans, Allie spent her life distancing herself from Seers, a race of human-like beings discovered on Earth in the early 1900s. Then she catches her boyfriend in the arms of a hot band groupie, and Allie goes from San Francisco artist slacker to the girl wearing the GPS anklet.

That's the least of her problems, though, compared to the shock of discovering who--and what--she really is.

Yanked out of her life by the mysterious Revik, Allie finds out that her blood may not be as "human" as she always thought. Through Revik she learns the truth: that Seers are nothing like she thought, that the world is nothing like it appears to be...and she has far more in common with Seers than she ever wanted to believe.


So yeah, I got arrested that September, and it pretty much changed everything.

Forever and ever...in my life, at least.

Why did it change everything, you might be wondering?

Well, not for the reasons you’re probably thinking.

Okay, yeah, it was really humiliating. I got thrown in jail for two nights. The cops treated me

like some kind of PCP-smoking weirdo and wouldn’t let me call my mom for twenty-four hours.

My mom flipped out. My brother Jon really flipped out. My friends all flipped out. I got a psych

eval, as mandated by the state of California for all new violent offenders with no previous

criminal records. I got a blood test...again. I had to pee in a jar.

Then, after all of that, I had to do community service. I couldn’t leave town. Worse, I had to

check in with the authorities, and yes, wear a shiny new GPS bracelet that was even more

awkward to explain when I finally got back to my job at Lucky Cat diner.

Who thankfully, by some miracle, hadn’t fired me.

None of that was the real issue, either, though.

The real problem, as they explained to me much, much later in time, was that I made myself

visible. That little freak-out of mine with Jaden and the broken bottle and the bimbo band

groupie was like sending up a great, big, noisy flare, one that got all the wrong people looking in

my direction.

Why is that, you might be wondering?

Well, it’s simple. See, what I did was only crazy if you’re human.

If you’re not human, I was later to discover, it’s pretty much run-of-the-mill normal.
