Meet the Guardians: Red

We’re 8 days away from the release of THE EIGHTH GUARDIAN, which (as the name suggests) centers around a generation of eight time travelers employed by the US government. The Guardians travel through our history and tweak the past to improve the present. Enhancement, not alteration . . . or so they say . . . .

I hired an amazing artist named Liv to sketch pictures of the Guardians, and I’ll be posting one a day, each day before the launch! Be sure to check back each day for a chance to win an autographed hardcover of THE EIGHTH GUARDIAN and a $25 Amazon gift card!

Meet Red.


Code Name: Red.

Real name:  redacted

Age: Unknown. Late 20s.

Position: Team leader, Annum Guard’s third generation

Strengths: Hiding his true feelings, taking charge in stressful situations

Weaknesses: Being too trusting of authority, not listening to instincts.

Quote from THE EIGHTH GUARDIAN: “And then for a second—one short but important split second—Red’s training fails him, and his eyebrows creep up a few hairs. That tells me everything. Red doesn’t know.”
