What do y’all think of this?
When seventeen-year-old SAMANTHA SANDERS’ parents are killed in a car accident, she is forced her to move halfway across the country to live with the blind Cherokee grandfather she hardly knows. After a dream where she finds herself inside the mind of a killer, she’s sure she doesn’t want to stay in Oklahoma.
Sam and her grandfather eat dinner with twenty-one-year old hottie, Deputy ANDREW CLEARWATER, and his mother a week Sam and her grandfather eat dinner with twenty-one-year old hottie, Deputy ANDREW CLEARWATER, and his mother a week after her parents’ death. She breaks down and Andrew consoles her, almost kissing her, but his behavior over the next few weeks becomes erratic and standoffish, so Sam finds solace in math tutor, JAMES PETERSON. almost kissing her, but his behavior over the next few weeks becomes erratic and standoffish, so Sam finds solace in math tutor, JAMES PETERSON. Unfortunately, she’s looking for a friend while he’s looking for a girlfriend.
During a backyard game of football, Andrew tackles Sam, pinning her to the ground. But before he can kiss her, her mind is overcome by a presence that doesn’t feel human. The game ends when Andrew’s cousins rush her inside. Darkness takes over, and Sam experiences a strange ability to see through eyes starving for the destruction of Andrew and his uncle, until a searing pain shoots through her body, ending her vision. Frantic and scared, Sam demands explanations but quickly realizes they are not easy to swallow.
Andrew pulls Samantha aside and explains the Cherokee Protector Legend. They both come from a long line of Cherokees with special gifts and talents that aid them in destroying Flesh Eaters, monsters of human form. She realizes her recurring nightmares are more than just bad dreams-they are a window into the mind of the monster that leaves her with a lust for blood, and for him.
Andrew and Sam’s attraction continues to grow and they begin secretly dating. As she struggles with the advances of James, another admirer emerges from the shadows-COLIN, the all-too-real monster from her dreams.
Although Colin is bound by his kind to kill her, he becomes obsessed and manipulates her thoughts and dreams. When he eventually shows himself, he speaks only in her thoughts, and vows to watch over her. Sam hates herself for the calming affect he has on her. The attraction she feels doesn’t help either.
When Colin allows Sam to live, it angers the other Flesh eaters, and Colin’s long time lover, Jasmine, takes it upon herself to destroy the Protector. Andrew shows up in time to keep Jasmine from killing Sam, but when Colin steps out of the woods, Andrew feels death for them is certain. In the end, Colin saves Sam by murdering Jasmine.
After the near death experience, Andrew breaks up with Sam, telling her he thinks his attraction is just physical. Heartbroken, but determined to stay strong, Sam turns to James, who’s more than willing to comfort her. Sam doesn’t realize Andrew’s true reasons for leaving her: Don’s visions have revealed that if Andrew doesn’t stay away from Sam, together they would destroy the balance of the Protectors. Sam struggles to find sense of her life, but it’s nothing compared to the hell Andrew is living through each day trying to keep up with the lie.
