Is this a better hook?
It’s shorter, for sure. 🙂
Of Cherokee heritage, seventeen-year-old Samantha Sanders discovers a connection between her vivid nightmares-which take her inside the mind of a killer, as she dreams of murders that actually happen…while they’re happening-and the an ancient line of Protectors she belongs to, who fight Flesh Eaters-monsters, who look like us, but come straight from the depths of legend. Sam finds herself, not only attracted to another Protector, but also to one of the monsters. And this man-monster has the power to control her dreams and influence her feelings.
Loosely based on the Cherokee Legend The Stone Shield, this young adult urban fantasy LEGEND OF THE PROTECTORS is complete at 97,000 words.
A registered Cherokee, I enjoy studying the history and legends of my people.
