Missy the Werecat
When puberty brings on her first Shift, Missy goes into the mountains for two years until finally learning to Change back. She can Change from fully human in one instant to a mountain lion in the next. Everyone assumes her two year disappearance was because she’d been kidnapped by a sexual predator that she managed to kill.
The First Balance Bringer
Deona has power beyond imagination … and beyond her control. To keep her power in check, her soul is divided into three parts: Deona, Estala, and Fianna. The three sisters each take the gift of one element – water, earth, and air. “From one, we became three. And from three, we are one. Always one.” In their seventeenth year, their fourth element – fire – is awakened. And so is the darkness, which comes to wreak havoc on the world. Only Deona and her sisters have the power to balance the elements and set the world right once more.
