Watchers’ eyes track a miles-distant bird.

Listeners’ ears hear a whisper a village away.

Knowers, extinct for 500 years, possessed telepathic powers straight out of a nightmare.

Alesea’s sole extraordinary trait is her musical talent. But when Watchers invade her tiny island on the night of her professional debut, she’s the only one who escapes—unwittingly using the powers of a Knower. Now, it’s up to her to save her people while coming to grips with her dangerous new identity, her pacifist beliefs, and only a traitor to help her.

Joanna “Jo” Sisk-Purvis is a writer, musician, and educator from Chapel Hill. Her stories for young people have been published in Cricket Magazine. She is a freelance flutist, music director for several local theatre companies, and a teacher at Carolina Friends School. She lives in the woods with her husband, three children, and far too many animals. THE WATCHERS is her debut novel.
