Terra is shiftless — a werewolf uncomfortable in her own animal skin. A decade after learning to squash her wolf and flee the repressive village where she grew up, the packless ache still gnaws at Terra’s insides. But despite her yearnings, she struggles against being reeled back into her old life. To Terra’s dismay, her father and half a dozen of his henchmen finally ambush her and demand her return. Yet they do offer one way out — hunt down her nephew Keith, teach him to shift, and bring the youngster back into the fold in her place.
No Prince for Riley
Every time someone opens a storybook and reads the four magical words “Once upon a time,” my granny gets eaten a few hours later. Boy, it sucks! I wish my tale had a cool ending, like Cindy and Briar-Rose get, along with a castle and dashing prince to marry. Did you ever kiss a frog? No prince pops out of that. Trust me, I’ve tried. Seventeen frogs and nearly one warty toad – for nothing. What I get is Jack but, alas, he’s unsuitable for a romantic ending. The Wolf simply lacks the manners for that. And obviously, a crown. Because everybody knows that love only happens among royals in Fairyland.
Will her obsession with dragons uncover a truth she’s not ready for? No one believed me, but I know what I saw. Before he disappeared, my brother turned into a dragon. They call me crazy, say I’m lost in a fantasy world. Maybe I’m a little obsessed. I’ve spent my entire life searching for answers, but the truth is bigger than I ever imagined. Dragons are real, and so are all the other creatures you only hear about in legends. I’ve found where they hide.
