Overview

Brash and apathetic to a fault, Detective Bobby Forsett retreats from a crumbling personal and professional world he fashioned around twenty-six years of dedicated police service. Seeking solace and personal redemption he finds himself pulled back by fading sentiments he’s trying to deny and vengeful forces intent on reminding him why he never should have left. Set amid the pristine forests and mountain grandeur that surround the gem of the Pacific Northwest’s urban coastal region, Vancouver Canada, the story offers glimpses into noble souls whose deeds are anything but, and callous tormentors whose intentions are all that and more. Bobby relentlessly pursues justice to the literal precipice rediscovering a commitment to past ideals and frayed emotional ties he’d considered relics of a past best forgotten.

    &hearts!

    The only thing is, l'm getting confused on genders. Is Whisperpaw a tom or she-cat? How about Fallingpaw? Please keep genders clear.

    Slipping Away: Chapter Two

    You guys are the best.
    <p>
    Whisperpaw ducked under a grey figure and swiped his paws harshly. The figure tripping and landed on his side, laughing in a deep voice.
    <br>
    "Great job, Whisperpaw!" He boomed in a thunderous purr.
    <br>
    Whisperpaw glanced at Fallingkit, sitting nearby quietly, then back at her mentour proudly. "Thank you, Silverstorm!" She let her guard drop.
    <br>
    Silverstorm grinned. "Work on you crouches. I could have easily known you were under me. If you duck lower, however, it'll be very hard to tell where you are."
    <br>
    Snowyheart padded in and sat beside Fallingkit, completely unaware of him. She smiled. "You're getting better, Whisperpaw."
    <br>
    Whisperpaw blinked shyly at her, then towards Fallingkit. He was staring at his mother for<_>lornly. If only she could see him...
    <br>
    "Think so." Whisperpaw as answered casually as she could manage. "Silverstorm? Can we go hunt for the elders, now?"
    <br>
    Silverstorm nodded once. "Snowyheart, you could come with us. I think you could use some time away from the nursery."
    <br>
    Snowyhert looked uneasy. "Brackenleap wouldn't like it if I left without him... can he tag along, too?"
    <br>
    Silverstorm sighed and nodded. "Sure."
    <br>
    Whisperpaw bounded out of the training hollow and towards the entrance of the camp. She stopped and turned around, waiting for Fallingkit to follow.
    <br>
    Fallingkit scampered after her gleefully, leaving hardly noticable indents in the sandy earth. She smiled and followed Brackenap, Snowyheart, and Silverstorm.
    <br>
    ...
    <br>
    Whisperpaw unsheathed her claws and steadily rocked her haunches. Her shoulder blades stuck into the air and her ears lie flat. The stirring under the bush stopped, and Whisperpaw was sure the creature could hear her heart beat. She leapt without warning and landed square on the mouse and bit it once. She smiled to herself, then glanced up at Fallingkit.
    <br>
    Fallingkit grinned goofily and laughed. "Great catch!"
    <br>
    Whisperpaw giggled back at him, flattening her ears affectionitely. "Thanks!"
    <br>
    Brackenleap hissed at Whisperpaw. "Shh! Who are you talking to?! We're still hunting!"
    <br>
    Whisperpaw sighed. "Yes, Brackenleap."
    <br>
    Snowyheart watched the bush ruffle and Whisperpaw step out, glancing over her shoulder. 'Lately Whisperpaw is nervous... why is she looking behind herself? Nobody is in our territory!' She wondered.
    <br>
    ...
    <br>
    Whisperpaw held the mouse triumphantly, while Brackenleap and Silverstorm carried a fat rabbit together. Snowyheart gripped a squirrel, panting happily. Fallingkit followed sorrowfuly, walking beside his mother. The five pelted towards the elder's den, greeted by a thin white tom and a once pretty tabby shecat.
    <br>
    "Oh, Longtail! Look! Our favorite apprentice brought us some prey!" The tabby mewed, flicking her ears forwards happily.
    <br>
    Longtail replied quietly. "Brindleface?" He stared forward with blind, yellow eyes. "Why hello there, Whisperpaw!"
    <br>
    Whisperpaw set the mouse at the old tom's paws. "Hi, Longtail. I brought you a mouse, and Brackenleap, Snowyheart, and Silverstorm got some prey, too." She turned to Brindleface. "Do you need anything else?"
    <br>
    Fallingkit sat next to Whisperpaw. "Look!" He pointed with his paw towards the sky.
    <br>
    Whisperpaw glanced up and took in a breath-taking veiw of the colorful sky. "Whoah." She sighed and smiled.
    <br>
    Fallingkit grinned. "Beautiful isn't-"
    <br>
    The others interrupted. "Oh, dear." Brindleface purred.
    <p>

    Lol Thanks Deep! It'll get better after I get the next chapter done. Things twist and turn into a big, cunfuzzling story. Like 'Cloud Atlas'! Have you ever seen it? Or 'John Carter of Mars'!!!

    This is a great read! The storyline is fast paced and keeps you

    This is a great read! The storyline is fast paced and keeps you hooked. The characters are layered and real and easily relatable. I cheer for the protagonist, yet I find myself angry with him when he acts so dumb and human too. I couldn't stop turning the pages and it kept me guessing and on the edge of my seat to the very end. Give this book a chance and say hello to a fantastic new author. You won't regret it!
