Chupacabra's Song by Jim C. Hines

In the Magic ex Libris series, Nicola Pallas is one of the most powerful magic-users in the world, able to overpower her enemies with little more than a whistle. She's also known for raising chupacabras in her barn.

This 5000-word short story introduces Nicola as a young girl, new to magic and unfamiliar with her potential. A woman brings a strange creature to Nicola's father, the local veterinarian. That injured animal--Nicola's first encounter with a chupacabra--leads her into a larger world of magical poachers, supernatural creatures, and danger.

It also offers the possibility of a life-changing friendship. Assuming Nicola survives.

The story is set approximately twenty years before the events of Libriomancer.

Chupacabra’s Song is a prequel in the Magic Ex Libris series by American author, Jim C. Hines. It is set twenty years before Libriomancer. Fourteen-year-old Nicola Pallas is helping out in her father’s vet surgery when Mrs Boucher brings in an injured animal. At first it looks like a Labrador, but then Nicola sees the spines, the narrow, flattened head and the long teeth. Not a dog. But whatever it was, it had Nicola’s magic singing. Then Frank and Martin turned up, her father and Mrs B were unconscious, and they had the creature in their SUV. A Chupacabra, they said. Nicola went along. They were after the rest of the pack. But when she understood what they intended, her rage at their cruelty gave her magic a power she had never before experienced. This short story is an excellent introduction to Nicola’s magic and how she came to breed chupacabras.
