Gunners of the White Cliffs is an adventure / suspense story about a tracker hunting an assassin in the present, and a young knife fighter known as a hunter, who is trying to protect the villages around him from hostile incursions in the distant future.
The tracker discovers that his target has targets of his own: While the tracker is hunting the assassin, the assassin has his sights on a peculiar girl with an unusual ability to  decipher complex patterns. The knife fighter, hiding in solitude in a mountain pass, is jolted into action when enemy kill squads chase two girls to his doorstep. 
Are these encounters mere coincidence, or are they connected? The dual time frame  sets an overarching theme of connections, both in the characters’ immediate surroundings and across time.
If you like adventure stories with plenty of action, but with characters that you care about and want to root for, you’ll like Gunners. When you finish, you’ll want to pick up Book II and keep reading.

From the back cover:

From his resting place in a cavern beneath the cliffs, a hunter armed with twin ten-inch double-edged blades hears guard transports approaching, rumbling up the road drawn by teams of the finest horses of the southlands, carrying kill squads with cutter guns. Rushing out onto the terraces above the road, he comes across two girls running from the guards, inexplicably still alive. A pair of southern strays has not only crossed the borderlands, but has made it all the way up into the passes.


A tracker known for his ability to find high-value government targets swears off the work when a job goes badly and his handler is killed. But when the killer escapes from prison and assassinates a government advisor near the tracker’s summer lodge, he is drawn back into the hunt. Just as the hunt is getting under way for a second time, a girl who becomes mesmerized by the patterns of things around her is drawn into the pattern herself. Is she the target this time?
