  There is no protection from the Unseen.  

Las Vegas, Nevada can’t contain Alexcia Crystalline Stasis, who is living the ideal teenager’s dream as the school’s elite socialite. That is, until a fatal car accident changes everything. Now Alexcia’s emotions are on the verge of combusting. As if mourning the loss of her boyfriend isn’t enough, she is also dealing with extreme night terrors that leave her wondering if she just might need to be fitted for a straightjacket.
Tevin isn’t your normal daemon. He’s the leader of his clan, and he also happens to be a very active Grim Reaper. He never wanted to be charged with babysitting the one girl who can sway Creation’s Balance. Tevin has known and kept Alexcia safe most of her life. Now that he has to become even more personally involved in her protection, Tevin finds himself having a hard time separating his sworn duty and pure curiosity. What does make Alexcia tick?
Will Tevin be able to keep Alexcia safe from the Unseen? And will Alexcia’s emotions eventually help Tevin attempt to understand what being human is all about? Or will the entities and assassins of the Unseen get what they want
… her dead.

eReader ready ... finally. O.O

When the Unseen turn dreams inside out, they become nightmares.

 The reaper is back… with reinforcements!

With the aid of his clan, Tevin believes that protecting the Child-of-Balance should be as easy as severing a soul, right? Wrong!

Alexcia Stasis having a hard time accepting the role of survivor after a fatal accident that claimed her boyfriend. But as the nightmares begin to crawl from beyond the darkness to haunt her days, she strives to remain sane until a string of events shred the lies exposing reality.

Can Tevin ignore the emotions tainting his decisions long enough to keep Alexcia safe or will the answers she seeks jeopardize everything he has tried to protect for the last ten years… her life?
