From USA TODAY bestselling author, a psychic warfare alternative history set in a gritty version of Earth. Contains strong romantic elements – a book in the Bridge & Sword World. Apocalyptic. Psychic Romance. 

“You are the Bridge…” 

Allie Taylor lives in a world populated by seers, a second race discovered on Earth at the beginning of the 20th Century. Psychic, hyper-sexual and enslaved by governments, corporations and wealthy humans, seers are an exotic fascination to Allie, but one she knows she’ll likely never encounter, given how rich you have to be to get near one. 

Then a strange man shows up at her work –– then another –– and pretty soon Allie finds herself on the run from the law, labeled a terrorist and in the middle of a race war she didn’t even know existed. Yanked out of her life by the mysterious and uncommunicative Revik, Allie discovers her blood may not be as “human” as she always thought, and the world of seers might not be quite as distant as she always imagined. 

When Revik tells her she’s the Bridge, a mystical being meant to usher in the evolution of humanity––or possibly its extinction––Allie must choose between the race that raised her and the one where she might truly belong.


Author created really interesting world. People discovered race of Seers and basically enslaved them. Allie think she is just regular human, until she is abducted, running from the police and marked as a terrorist. The guy that kidnapped her, was trying to save her, she was in grave danger. 

I really like the setting of the story, it interesting world, that has that felling, it could really happen. 

Allie is part of the special race and has important part in the future, Revik is trying to help her, but is often confusing her more. 

Even though, I really like the story, I felt lost at times, and wasn't sure what was going on.

Happy reading,
