Since the beginning, there has always been a pairing. Bertram is the Caretaker, Mellissa the Soul Guide. Both chosen by the Elders. For decades the pair have lived in relative harmony. Together they ensure light and life remain on Earth. Together they are stronger. That is, until the day Bertram feels Mellissa leave this world for good and everything changes.
Sybil, on a break from her first semester at University, gets stung by a bee in the middle of a winter snow storm. A bee that can travel between the Veil and Earth. She has been chosen as the new Soul Guide, but Mellissa hasn’t made her transition an easy one. Sybil only has a few days to reach the Veil to complete the Passing Over ceremony. If she fails the consequences are to dire to comprehend. Will she make it in time? Does she want the responsibility? Does she even have a choice?
For thousands of years the Master and the Mephisto have been biding their time, waiting for the moment to strike, to put the light out for good and they are getting stronger. And if they are getting stronger then the Soul Guide is in big trouble.
The Elders, however, will not go down without a fight. Meet Alec, brooding, mysterious, troubled. From the first moment he lays his eyes on Sybil he has the strangest desire to protect her, from whom he doesn’t have a clue, but protect her with his life he will.
Can Bertram, Sybil and Alec work together to reach the Veil before it’s too late? Read Book One of The Soul Guide series to find out.
