Protect gargoyles during the day? Check.
Escape ex-girlfriend trying to kill you? Check.
Determine if new crush is enemy spy? Uh… still pending…
Life is about to change for fifteen-year-old Mike Prior. He’s to become a Guardian, a protector of the gargoyle clans. With all the promise of sorcery, kinetic powers, and magical-dueling, the new gig sounds awesome, for sure.
Except for a few minor details. First, his ex-girlfriend. Seems she’s trying to kill him. A shame, considering how well things had been going. Second, his new crush. She’s amazing. Beautiful. And almost definitely an enemy spy. Which complicates things.
Finally, this war that’s apparently been brewing. Seems like the Black Brethren think Mike’s own power is the best way to touch off an inter-species Armageddon, and they’ll stop at nothing to get it. Mike’s been dropped into a web of assassins, spies, and necromancers, and no one’s even told him the rules. And as much as he’d like to sit back and hone his flamethrowing, he’s got to figure things out, and quick. Because if the Brethren don’t get to him, his closest friends just might.
Growing up with a strange combination of Clancy, Crichton, Tolkien, and Rowling probably gave birth to Seth Z. Herman’s YA/fantasy/thriller style of writing. Seth hails from Queens, New York, where he grew up as an (admittedly sheltered) Orthodox Jew. A lifetime of experiences later, he now lives in Jerusalem with his wife and two children, where he poses as a rabbi teaching Judaic studies at an American post-high-school seminary.
