About the Book
*TWILIGHT GUARDIANS (we’ve been using the T word in our titles since 1993) is the first book in a new iteration of a long running, critically acclaimed, award winning and New York Times Bestselling vampire series, Wings in the Night, also known as the “Twilight” series because most of the books had that word in their titles, was published by the world’s largest publisher. Wings in the Night had 20 stories and lasted 19 years, 1993-2011. Now, Wings in the Night: Reborn picks up where that series left off. TWILIGHT GUARDIANS is a sexy thrill ride where the vampires are the good guys and entities within the government are set on their extermination. A young vamp who believes he’s the last of his kind, vs. a girl-super-soldier being trained to wipe out what remains of the Undead.
