Catherine Spangler Sentinel Series...

Found the cover for Touched by Light over on Shelfari and Amazon. Still can't confirm who the hero and heroine are. The only thing I could find was a release date of June 2, 2009. Adam and Julia's book is suppose to be next in the series. Checked Ms. Spangler's website and it hasn't been update in over a year. I do hope this is their book and it gets released next year. Adam in particular was such an interesting character. And Julia should fit well with him. I really enjoyed Touched by Darkness and Touched by Fire, the first two books in the series. They were both released in 2007 so it's been a while since I read them. Might need to do a re-read on those. She also wrote another series called the Shielder series that I've heard very good things about. I have those in my TBR pile.

Here's the deets on the Sentinel series from Ms. Spangler's website:

The Sentinels are reincarnated Atlantians, the same souls who were the priests and high priests who served The One (God/Creator/Supreme Being) in the temple on Atlantis.

The Sentinels have returned to Earth, taking on human bodies, in order to track down Belians, also reincarnated Atlantians. The Belians are the souls of those who followed Belial on Atlantis and worshipped dark forces and made human sacrifices—and whodestroyed Atlantis. They are also in human bodies and they, like the Sentinels, have superhuman abilities.

It is a cat-and-mouse game between them, as the Belians mount a reign of terror and evil on current-day Earth, and the Sentinels track them and dispense karmic justice.
The two groups are well matched in physical and psychic powers, but the Sentinels have a slight edge: Conductors—a small group of humans who are able to mentally link with Sentinels and enhance their psychic tracking abilities.

A human conductor who psychically matches a Sentinel is always the opposite sex. When the conductor and Sentinel meld minds and souls in a conduction to track a Belian, powerful sexual energies arise, and it becomes much more than a mental exercise. The sparks fly as Sentinel and conductor come together in a blaze of psychic power and sizzling desire, to track unimaginable evil.

Your Earth is once again touched by darkness.

But those who worship Belial will not win.
There is no escape from destiny.
We are the Sentinels.
We will prevail.

If anyone has heard anything about this book please share. Thanks!


  1. Les;lie, I'm a Spangler fan and I enjoyed the first two books in this series. I think it centers a bit more around the scifi/paranormal elements, but I still found the romance satisfactory. I've been waiting for this third one for a while now!!

  2. Oops, sorry about that punctuation in your name lol. Must drink more coffee.

  3. Leslie, I'm a huge fan of the Shielder series and Spangler. I just gobbled up all her books this year, including the Sentinel series. I enjoyed the first two books on this series, so I'll definitely be getting the third... although like you, I'll have to do a re-read by June '09.

  4. KMont ~ I agree with the scifi/pn elements in the first two books. I thought Spangler did a good job with the balance of those and the romance.

    Hilcia ~ the last book, Touched by Fire was released in Oct. 07 so it will be 20 months between books. I think I've gotten spoiled by the 2 books per year that many authors seems to do. : )

  5. I haven't read any of her books myself, although the synopsis sounds good. I just can't help but be annoyed by the cover model (Nathan Camp I think his name is) - who wouldn't be so annoying if he wasn't on about a million romance novels on shelves RIGHT NOW.

  6. AnimeJune ~ you're right, that's him. I wasn't happy when I saw him on there either so I just concentrated on the car. lol

    And I would definitely recommend Spangler's books.
