The man they called the Lord of the Wolves was self-evidently not human if you knew what to look for, David decided. While he had the amber eyes of of a werewolf they were flecked with silver and his skin was unnaturally pale. He also had razor sharp claws similar to David’s own but he didn’t seem to be able to retract them. He was also pretty obviously related to Sabren even though he was taller than she was. They had the same hair and similar face shapes and noses. As soon as they entered the room he and Lucy looked around at them. Read the rest of this entry »

“Is it lighter than it should be out there?” David asked.

Kate nodded. “She’s summoned sunlight to her sword, as is her right as summer warrior. It puts most of us at a disadvantage so I severely doubt Liam well let that stand for very long.” Even as she spoke David felt something scratch across his skin followed by a loud crack. Everything was engulfed in a stygian darkness that pressed against his eyeballs. A moment later a slight glow appeared in the room and when he looked at it her realised that both the circlet on Kate’s head and the gun in her hand were glowing softly. “Good grief! Bloody overkill, Liam,” she said. “We need to be able to see.” She gave a wry smile. “He always forgets that most mistwalkers can’t see in the dark.” Read the rest of this entry »

Maelin paused outside Morna’s bar and took a breath to quell his uncharacteristic nervousness. His methods had made him enough enemies over the centuries – most of whom he deserved – that he feared a scene, or worse, if he was noticed by her clientèle. He respected Morna enough not to want to bring trouble to her door.

It was Lucy’s suggestion that they appeal to the Unseelie ambassador. Morna was famously neutral but Lucy had an inkling that she had learnt about David and would be less neutral than before. He hoped she was right because he needed help to resolve this and Morna was one of the few people powerful enough to provide it. He took another breath and followed Lucy inside.

A/N: Sorry this is late. I was waiting on a new laptop charger

The cat that walked calmly into Maelin’s lair was a pretty tabby that would have looked just like a short haired domestic house cat were she not at least twice the size of a normal cat. She was probably supposed to be there, Colin decided since she had one of the key discs attached to a flea collar. Indeed Maelin seemed unperturbed to see her. Read the rest of this entry »

Sabren looked much as Leisa remembered when they spotted her sitting in a quiet booth in one corner of Morna’s bar. She looked up and smiled at them when she spotted them arriving.

“Leisa!” she said as they approached. “The night’s are treating you well.” She turned and inclined her head to Michael. “Michael, honoured father of your line, it is a pleasure to meet you at last.”

“Thank you,” he said curtly. Read the rest of this entry »

A/N: If you missed my New Year Post about my returning schedule check it out.

Abigail didn’t seem anything like a potential renegade spy to David. Then again he wasn’t sure how an evil werewolf pretending to be a good one would seem. But as she slid into the seat opposite him at the table he was certain that this calm, collected young woman with an easy smile and laughter in her eyes wasn’t it. She had to know how little his family trusted her and that they would kill her if she put a foot wrong, but he had no sense of fear from her. Instead she seemed vastly amused by her situation.

Happy New Year and News

January 1st, 2018  |  Published in News  |  3 Comments

Firstly Happy New Year to all my readers and thank you for your patience.

So 2017 was not a good year for me. I don’t think that’s any secret given that I vanished for half the year. I was already exhausred and then I had a mental health hiccup mid year but I am back in Cognitive Behavorial Therapy and on antidepressants and am doing much better. So it’s time to start posting again.

Now I don’t want to rush into things because I am still not 100% and my stamina is still low so I’m going to start by posting Haventon once a week on Saturdays starting on 6th January 2018 and if after a couple of months I’m okay with that we’ll see about adding a Wednesday and a second story (Probably Caredale).

If you want to find me online I mostly hang out on Mastodon these days (and tootplanet is a great little instance run by one of my friends). So that’s a good place to check I haven’t suffered a Creator Existence Failure should I vanish again. That will also be the place to see a little more of my writing as I am going to be continuing my tootserial Lawgiver’s Blade on there soon (more about that when I have a relaunch date).

Again thank you for your patience and see you on Saturday.

“You seem tired, Ophelia.” Alsia leaned against the tree she had nearly thrown Kate into and smiled at her. Ophelia ignored the comment, barely resisiting growling at her. She took a couple of deep breaths and reminded herself they had to discuss this calmly.

“Were you ever going to tell me?” she asked finally.

“Of course. Once I was sure that you weren’t going to turn on me or sooner if events got the better of me.” Read the rest of this entry »

“Er…” she began to ask if anyone knew what was going on but before she could Paritan appeared in front of her, grabbed her and spun her around, his shield surrounding both of them. “Wha…” she said as he released her and sank to the grass blood soaking his clothing. She shook her head trying to figure out what had happened then spotted the Kithraean boy charging towards them only to be intercepted by Tilaran. It must have been him.

“Are you alright?” Paritan asked. Read the rest of this entry »

She caught herself and managed to jump down, landing in a crouch and looked around for the source of the disturbance while trying to push aside the red mist of a rising rage that she thought had its source in the Key. Out of the corner of her eye she saw Paritan stiffen and turn to glare at something.

When she turned to follow his gaze she saw the Kithrean boy whom she had fought with over the spar. He was glaring at her with murder in his eyes. He must have come to finish what he started. He wasn’t the source of her rage however. The honour went to the Kithrea woman standing just behind him with her firey wings spread wide. She was staring at Ophelia as well, but for some reason she looked torn between confusion and shock. Read the rest of this entry »
