We’re 2 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!
Code Name: Violet.
Position: Junior Guardian
Strengths: Willingness to go to bat for a friend, ability to follow through on orders until the end.
Weaknesses: Tendency to panic in stressful situations, more of a follower than a leader.
Quote from THE EIGHTH GUARDIAN: Violet narrows her dark-brown eyes. “You really need to forget about that boyfriend of yours. That’s in the past. You’re Annum Guard. Well, for now, at least.”
The implication is obvious. She wants me to fail. She doesn’t want me to be in the Guard.
Well, screw her. I take a step closer to her.
“Do you feel threatened by me?”
“Why would I?” She laughs, although I can tell it’s a nervous laugh. Good. “You don’t belong here. You’re an outsider.”
(Only one Guardian left! Check back tomorrow to meet Iris, our protagonist!)
