To be Exemplian is an honor.
The privilege: You never die.
The burden: You never die.
As the Protectors and Guides of human energy-souls-across all worlds, Exemplians are responsible to ensure life flows effortlessly throughout the universe. The task is dangerous, at times deadly, but death doesn't matter in Exemplar.
For Exemplians, death is easy. Rebirth is harder.
Tarek Montigue, an Exemplian Protector, has recently experienced his first rebirth. Scientists have turned back time, strengthened his body. Physically, he's fit to serve, able to live another cycle as a privileged drone in Exemplar.
But the misery that comes from rebirth is as dark and deep as rumors claim.
As he tries to cope, news has spread that a new energy, a new life, is born. The new life? A Guide. And every Guide needs a Protector. When Tarek is deemed the perfect match for Lena, the new energy, the honor begins to heal him.
An honor that could possibly destroy him, too.
THE PAIRING is the prequel to TAINTED ENERGY of The Energy Series. The complete series can be found on Amazon.
