By the time the others returned David was getting used to the feel of the Mists and had learned to stop himself crossing over which was a relief, but he still hadn’t learned to fully glamour his eyes though Tyler thought he’d pass unless someone took a close look.

Leisa and Michael arrived back first but didn’t have time to tell them what they’d found before Tanya and Meredith returned. Meredith didn’t look any better than when she and Tanya had left and Tanya looked pale and drawn. As soon as they came in Meredith rushed straight over to David and grabbed his hands.

Haventon Book One: Haventon Born now available as an ebook

October 25th, 2015  |  Published in Haventon Chronicles

Haventon Born Cover

Okay peeps! The ebook version of Haventon Born is live. It’s been edited and there are some minor changes from the original version. More importantly  it contains an 8000 word bonus story “Moonlight and Memories” which will never be available on the site.

The paperback version is still in process and will hopefully be available by Halloween.


Cover Blurb:

Vampires. Mere stories and myths until David’s dearest sister becomes one. He’s hunted them relentlessly ever since. Given that Haventon attracts supernatural creatures like a magnet does iron, David has become a well-practiced and skillful hunter.

But his hard-earned confidence betrays him and his prey, an elder vampire, takes the upper hand. Leisa doesn’t kill him, but shatters his certainty. Into his rebuilding effort comes The Order, directors of his hunting, with an order to supervise a novice hunter. Her error, attacking a human, requires all his attention at a time he can ill afford it.

Anna, the novice, asks him to examine her notes, to explain where she went wrong. While her mistake becomes understandable, it’s also attracted dangerous attention. More dangerous, perhaps, than the female vampire stalking him.

But not more dangerous than the town he and Anna were born in.

Haventon hasn’t finished with them yet.

It hasn’t even begun.

PDF Version here  (If you’re not sure here’s advice on how to read a PDF)

A/N 2: Torvawk, did you get my emails? I sent you something.

The next afternoon Colin’s head was still spinning from his conversation with Maelin and he toyed with the eggs and bacon Lucy set in front of him rather than eating them.

“I know it’s a lot to take in, cub,” she said after watching him for a moment. “But you need to eat up if you’re gong to recover fully from what your mother did to you.” Read the rest of this entry »

A/N2: Cover Reveal for Haventon Book One

David stared into the mirror Tyler had set in front of him. If anything his eyes looked even more silver than they had last night.

“Can you really help me hide these?” he asked.

“I should be able to,” Tyler said. “Though I wish Liam hadn’t dropped this on me. I’m a warrior not a teacher.”

“You’ll be fine, dad,” Brenna said. “You taught me after all.” Read the rest of this entry »

The next three people that Liam and Tyler took David to had also refused to help. The last one had slammed the door in Tyler’s face. The sun had been up for an hour when they pulled into the driveway of a very ordinary suburban semi-detached house, yet in spite of not having slept in over twenty four hours – unless you counted being knocked out briefly – David did not feel fatigued at all. It seemed that Tyler was right about him not having to sleep as much. Read the rest of this entry »

Lord of the Wolves

Chapter Two

A/N: Here’s chapter two. Hope you enjoy it peeps.  I’ve also made some changes to Chapter One to fix a massive continuity error between book 1 and 2.

Show no weakness. Colin kept his eyes fixed on the wall of his unfurnished room and forced himself to keep breathing in spite of the pain it caused him. At least it distracted him from the memory of what had happened. Even after several days he couldn’t stomach thinking about his failed initiation. He didn’t know where his parents and their pack had found the human teen they’d sacrificed but they were still angry that he hadn’t been able bring himself to share the feast let alone be the one to actually kill the boy.

He rubbed his cheek, where he had a bruise – one of many – from the savage beating his mother had given him after the ceremony. Read the rest of this entry »

Lord of the Wolves

Chapter One

Anna woke to find herself in the spare room at Tanya’s house again. It was night and she could see the waning moon shining through the curtains. For a moment she thought that she had relapsed and the whole horrible ordeal had been a fever dream but the pain in her wrists and ankles suggested otherwise. Indeed when the sheet fell back as she sat up she could see the abrasions and bruises on her wrists where the chains had been.

She swung her feet out of the bed and sat there staring at her hands, remembering the ways they had sprouted fur and claws and how she had disemboweled Ragnar. Not a dream then. At least she was free but what the hell had happened there? She sucked in a deep breath and looked up slowly, freezing as she saw her reflection in the mirror. Her eyes had changed from their usual boring hazel to an unnaturally vivid amber colour. Read the rest of this entry »

A/N: Calling my posting the epilogue of book one late would be a bit of an understatement. And it ends rather cliffhangery. Sorry about that but here it is finally. As I have already mentioned anyone who becomes a Patreon patron at the $5 level or above will get access to the rough draft of Book 2 – Lord of the Wolves – as I write it this month and if we reach $250/month total pledges I will start posting it on the site August. If we don’t then I will start posting either when we reach that many pledges – or January 2015 whichever is earlier. I’d really like it to be earlier, but either way I will post it in the next few months. I don’t want people to think I’m holding it hostage.

For the third night in a row Laurel woke in the gloom of dusk to find that she couldn’t move.

She’d spent the first night desperately reaching out for her blood master and finding only a mental fog that stopped her cries for help reaching beyond her skull. She had just as desperately racked her brain trying to remember how this had happened but her memories of the previous few nights were confused and tattered. The overriding image was a memory of a someone attacking her and then a dark haired vampire woman kneeling beside her looking worried. The hole in her memories only increased her terror and by the time the tiniest but of dawn light slipping into her refuge plunged her back into unconsciousness she was on the verge of panic.

A/N: Sorry for the skip last week. I had a bug and was sick as a parrot.

“Lost him,” Tanya murmured. She was kneeling by Caroline who was sleeping soundly in the spare room of Sarah’s cottage. “He used aconite to obscure his scent.”

Leisa swore violently but nodded. “Inevitable I suppose much as I wish he hadn’t. Did you get any sense of what he was planning to do next?”

“Not really, we only get the vaguest mental impressions. He was very tired though.” Read the rest of this entry »

Two bottles of cow’s blood later Ragnar felt a lot less shaky but he knew for certain that he would have to find more before he hibernated if he didn’t want to be asleep for years. The combination of rowan poisoning, werewolf claws and severe injury did that to vampires. But first he needed to hide his scent from the werewolves.

He opened the chest in the corner of the cellar of the old Victorian house and pulled out the aconite infused oil he kept there and anointed himself with it, especially across the wounds Anna had left. Then he wrapped silver bracelets around his wrists, wincing as they irritated his skin – the last thing he needed with his injuries. Fortunately he wouldn’t need to wear them for long before the link broke.

While he waited he sipped from the third and final bottle of cow’s blood in this stash considered his options for getting more. Human would be best but in his current state he didn’t trust himself not to attract attention. He would have to visit his other stash, he supposed, and hope that another two bottles of animal blood would be enough to shorten his hibernation. He emptied the bottle, waited a few minutes more to be sure the bracelets had done their work before removing them and headed out to his final house and emptying the bottle there as well.

Dawn was not far off when Ragnar finally headed into the wooded hills of the nature reserve seeking a quiet spot with the right energy where he could bury himself in order to finish healing. It was fortunate that there was such a place close enough to Haventon to appease the town because it was way too soon for him to leave Haventon after it had drawn him back.

A hum of power from the soil beneath his feet caught his attention and he stopped and knelt down to lay one hand on the ground. A pleasant energy shot up his arm and washed away the last of his anger. He nodded to himself – the perfect place for his hibernation. It had the right energy and was far off the path where no one would come

He dug away at the mossy earth between the roots of a great oak with his hands and made a burrow large enough to crawl into where it’s presence would be less obvious. The first rays of the sun were just breaking through the leaves as he crawled into his hiding place backwards and pulled the earth back on top of him before collapsing into a long, dark, healing sleep.
