Allie's War: Book One

Authored by JC Andrijeski

"Buckle your seat belt, hold on to the bar, and get set for an exciting ride - this one is intense! And addictive, too. JC Andrijeski tackles big concepts...in this story of a young woman who just wants to do the right thing (and not accidentally end the world) in the face of some extraordinary challenges: one of them being a truly terrifying adversary who would make Hannibal Lecter want to hide under the bed. Fans will undoubtedly look forward to more."
~Tamela Viglione, award-winning author of the young adult novel, Buck


"Action-packed apocalyptic Alice Through the Looking Glass. Rook moves through an alien and militaristic chess match at an exciting clip without glossing the depth and pathos of its players. Andrijeski has brought us a timely and epic
vision of the battle between good and evil. "
~ Irene Watts, Author

"You are the Bridge..."

Twenty-eight-year-old San Francisco native, Allie Taylor, knew she had issues...but she at least thought she was human. In her version of modern day Earth, a second race of human-like beings called seers were discovered in Asia in the early 1900s. Since then, they have fought in two world wars and live alongside humans as second-class citizens.

So when Allie meets her first, real, flesh-and-blood seer, she's not exactly thrilled when he tells her that she's a seer like him. Not only that, but according to him, all the other seers believe she's going to end the world.

Worse, no matter what she does, everything that happens after that only seems to prove him right.
