Century after century the good battled the Dark Ones, always prevailing and preserving the lives of their beloved humans. In the 17th century, two powerful Dark leaders emerged, they organized their forces and a bitter war ensued. It was a fight to the death and the good thought they?d won. Four warriors led the battle, four warriors whose strength was beyond anything they knew, four warriors whose legacy had to be protected?
The good formed a consortium and with the help of a powerful sorcerer, a spell was cast; a spell that would follow the warriors? lineage in case their power was needed again. The warriors are long dead, but their heirs are not, and now they must fight. The Dark Ones have re-emerged, they are more powerful, more resourceful and they want to control mankind and the world.
Clare had an ideal life. She lived in the perfect little town, had a great family and four of the best friends in the world. She also had nightmares, nightmares that plagued her for almost a decade. But these are not ordinary nightmares; they are premonitions, warnings of what is to come and what she will become.
She discovers that she isn?t alone in these vile dreams; her friends are having them too. They are dreaming of their ancestors and their own future... The discovery of their destiny and the future they must embrace is shocking and terrifying.

Interesting beginning of a story. Awkward start, in fact I would cut off everything before Charlie showed up and work it into the rest of the story as flashbacks or condense it somehow to a chapter or forward. The story really doesn't pick up until about the 1/3 of the way in and was a struggle to get into before that. If this was not a book I received for review I would not have continued I would have put it down and deleted it from my Nook, which would have been a shame because I ended up intrigued by the story at the end and curious about the world the author was developing. This story tells you a lot and it would have been nice to have been shown more of the action. I guess I'm not used to my stories written in the past tense. The chapters are very short for most of the book although they get a little meatier towards the end. I wish the text would not have been so teeny tiny on my Nook and it shows up in different sizes and boldness, it took a little bit to get used to. I'm glad the story was short I might have gone blind or needed a magnifying glass to read a longer story. It wasn't bad definitely not the worst story I have read, not sure yet if I want to read more, will have to think on it a little bit. Like I have stated the beginning of this short story is the main problem I had with it. In my opinion it needs to start where the action starts, but over all a nice short story and world you have created. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to read and review your book.
