Sergeant Warren Parish is a dangerous man—in more ways than his military training would explain. Nowhere in the world is this more clear than war-torn Iraq, where his "special skill set" is crucial on more than one deadly occasion.
When a new enemy arises out of the ashes of southern Baghdad, Warren's unit must rely on the help of an unlikely ally: private military contractors from Claymore Worldwide Security.
With them is a woman. Skilled. Sexy. And absolutely lethal. It doesn't take long for Warren to realize her set of superpowers might even rival his own. But discovering her truth will have to wait. First, they must make it back from their mission alive.
***Sergeant Warren Parish is one of the leading men in The Soul Summoner Series. Chronologically, this novella happens before the series begins, but it is a standalone and can be read in any order.***

About the Author
In the dawning age of scrunchies and ‘Hammer Pants,’ a small-town musician with big-city talent found out she was expecting her third child a staggering eleven years after her last one. From that moment on, Susie Waldrop referred to her daughter Elicia as a ‘blessing’ which is loosely translated as an accident, albeit a pleasant one.
In true youngest-sibling fashion, Elicia lived up to the birth order standard by being fun-loving, outgoing, self-centered, and rebellious throughout her formative years. She excelled academically–a feat her sister attributes to her being the only child who was breastfed–but abandoned her studies to live in a tent in the national forest with her dogs: a Rottweiler named Bodhisattva and a Pit Bull named Sativa. The ensuing months were very hazy.
In the late 90’s, during a stint in rehab, Elicia was approached by a prophet who said, “Someday you will write a book.”
She was right.
Now a firm believer in the prophetic word, Elicia Hyder is a full-time writer and freelance editor living in central Florida with her husband and five children. Eventually she did make it to college, and she studied literature and creative writing at the American Military University.
Her debut novel, The Bed She Made, is very loosely based on the stranger-than-fiction events of her life. It is available on all major online book retailers.
