by Sawyer Bennett

Publisher: Big Dog Books, LLC
Age Group: YA/New Adult
Genre: Paranormal Romance
She’s a loner, she likes to fight and, oh yeah...she has the ability to see the demons that lay beneath the faces of ordinary humans. It’s a gift Charlie Wright inherited the night her parents were brutally murdered when she was fourteen years old.
Now in her last year of high school, Charlie just can’t seem to keep herself out of trouble. Rather than taking a one-way trip to juvenile detention, Charlie chooses to join a mysterious group called The ForeverLand Alliance.
And then her life really gets weird.
Charlie finds herself magically transported to an alternate universe. In Semper Terra, no one ages, people fly, and one stunningly gorgeous, immortal man manages to capture Charlie’s heart and awaken the adult woman she is becoming.
But it’s not all fun and games. For Charlie is training to become an Annihilator, a select group of Semper Terrans who protect mankind from all of those things that go “bump in the night”.
It’s only when Charlie finds herself stuck in the middle of a prophecy that could bring about the end of the world that she truly begins to understand the deep sacrifices she will have to make.
WRITING PARANORMAL VERSUS REALISTIC FICTION
The thing that is so great about writing paranormal is that it is very freeing, because I am not confined at all by any rules or boundaries in my fantasy world. I can blend in the elements I love writing in new adult and plop them right into my paranormal world, and they work just as well. For example, Charlie Wright may be an extraordinary human souped up on magic, who slays daimons and is part of a prophecy that could bring about the end of the world, but she’s still a young woman who is falling in love and lust for the first time, and is trying to figure her way through all of these tumultuous feelings. It’s a lot of fun to write for sure!
