The SIPHON Chronicles
“Repeat thee and lose thee. Sing thee and lose thee.” These are the words that have plagued Lark’s dreams for as long as she can remember, but what do they mean?
Seventeen year old Lark Spur has seen odd things her entire life. She siphons the years from those who are dying, but would rather be rid of such a distasteful magic.
At a young age she realized the peculiar happenings when she would visit her deaf grandmother in the nursing home. Noting that they were associated with her and the other residents, she started to write things down, make notes. The victims even thanked her for lessening their pain on several occasions.
That is, until Dane came to town. Dane’s unsettling stare holding the amused smirk on his face only makes her wonder if he knows…her secret. Every day, he watches her. When he started popping up in places other than school, her fear rose beyond just possible boy stalker.
And worse, when she learns his true identity, she finds he is trouble and 100% part of the same circle of creatures she belongs too. And worse, he is not there to help her, but to take her away. Lark despises him and his hold on the secrets to who she really is. Yes, she had heard of him for years, but she was told to stay far away from him. She tried even now. It didn’t work.
Dane Crawford knows his place. It’s with the Siphon Council which he will soon have a place beside his father, the leader. He has worked hard to get to this level no matter what opposing belief systems he held to his father.
Sent to bring in one of their own, Dane didn’t foresee who, or what she would soon do to change the course of his life forever. She is the one his father has been searching for. The one he fears more than any other siphon.
