Book Description: She’s a loner, she likes to fight and, oh yeah...she has the ability to see the demons that lay beneath the faces of ordinary humans. It’s a gift Charlie Wright inherited the night her parents were brutally murdered when she was fourteen years old.
Now in her last year of high school, Charlie just can’t seem to keep herself out of trouble.  Rather than taking a one-way trip to juvenile detention, Charlie chooses to join a mysterious group called The ForeverLand Alliance.

And then her life really gets weird.

Charlie finds herself magically transported to an alternate universe. In Semper Terra, no one ages, people fly, and one stunningly gorgeous, immortal man manages to capture Charlie’s heart and awaken the adult woman she is becoming.
But it’s not all fun and games. For Charlie is training to become an Annihilator, a select group of Semper Terrans who protect mankind from all of those things that go “bump in the night”.
It’s only when Charlie finds herself stuck in the middle of a prophecy that could bring about the end of the world that she truly begins to understand the deep sacrifices she will have to make.

INSPIRATION TO WRITE FOREVER YOUNG by Sawyer Bennett

I wrote Forever Young on sort of a lark. I had just completed two adult, paranormal romances but wanted to try something that would have more action, adventure and fantasy elements. I also wanted to write a heroine that could kick some major ass but be vulnerable while falling in love at the same time. When I started writing it, I had no idea it would be a series. But because I wanted to give equal attention to the action/adventure elements as I did to the romance, I soon realized it would need to be at least three books to pull it all off.
Next, I wanted to try to take a fairy tale or popular fantasy story and do a different twist with it. Peter Pan immediately came to mind so I based the entire concept of the story on Neverland… a magical place where you never grow old. I played heavily on the concepts of orphans finding their way to this magical place, except in Forever Young it’s called Semper Terra (which is Latin for Forever Land). There are many elements weaved throughout Forever Young that parallel the story or characters in Peter Pan and I look forward to seeing the Peter Pan buffs being able to identify them all.

USA Today Best-Selling author, Sawyer Bennett, is a snarky southern woman and reformed trial lawyer who decided to finally start putting on paper all of the stories that were floating in her head. She is married to a mobster (well, a market researcher) and they have two big, furry dogs who hog the bed. Sawyer would like to report she doesn't have many weaknesses but can be bribed with a nominal amount of milk chocolate.
