Three facts about Liam:
- Liam is the only Cronian who is a second-generation angel. His father was recruited before he was born.
- Though not competitive, Liam is a board game wizard. Elijah refuses to play opposite of him.
- He has a library in his home filled with historical nonfiction, self help, and medical books. If you want to know something, you ask Liam.
My thoughts on Liam:
Liam was recruited when he was a preteen, so not unlike Jeremy. Prior to his recruitment, he and his mother lived in the St. George colony. Mason would steer the court their at least once a month and spend a weekend with his mate and son. As soon as he recognized the potential in Liam’s soul–at twelve–he recruited his son and began training him in survival tactics. Liam learned quickly, absorbing all the information thrown his way like a sponge. When his ability manifested, he taught himself to create mirages to fool bandits.
He was in his twenties when Elijah was rescued and recruited. Liam welcomed the younger man, as he had never had a sibling before. He taught Eli everything he knew, and was amazed that the teenager could get Kris to visit the court when there wasn’t an emergency. It wouldn’t be until Liam was in his thirties and Eli in his twenties that any romantic feelings would surface, leading to the pair experiencing the soul mate bond.
When Albert was rescued, it was Elijah who catered to him until Kris could heal him, and Liam who welcomed the young man into their home. The elders were very fond of the teenager, seeing him as the son they never had. Even though Liam butted heads with his protégé often, he still loved him like he was his own flesh and blood. He’s happy that Al has taken to visiting his old colony and bonding with his late girlfriend’s father, as he was hoping it would help the young man move past the tragedy he experienced. Instead, Albert has been stuck in the past, unable to move on. He and Liam will explore their discourse in Taurus, with Albert ultimately having to make a choice.
For those of you who don’t know, Liam is a supporting character in my trilogy Saturn Rising, which is the first installment of The Chronicles of Life & Death. The first book, Aquarius, is available now on Amazon as an e-book and paperback. You can even read it all for free with Kindle Unlimited! Learn more here.
