This was a bad idea. Syd’s not here. And I won’t put the rest of the family at risk without her around to protect them.
The back door opens, the motion-sensitive light coming on. I duck quickly to the side, hiding in the shadows with Sage shaking beside me, while a dark figure steps out into the yard. She looks worried, one hand clutching the door, the other clenched at her side. Dark, straight hair shivers around her as she takes another half-step onto the patio stones, the light reflecting from her dusky skin.
“Charlotte?” Sashenka Hensley’s whisper carries into the night, backed by a thread of power, seeking me. She’s dressed for bed, feet bare, but she looks wide awake. “Charlotte, is that you?”
Sage has completed his transformation, but their troubles aren’t over yet. While trying to convince the powers that be he is no threat to the werenation, Charlotte must face her past head on and survive to reinvent herself, all while saving her grandfather from the clutches of a power-hungry sorcerer and the werewolf who would be king.
About the Author
About me, huh? Well, my official bio reads like this: Patti Larsen is an award-winning middle grade and young adult author with a passion for the paranormal. But that sounds so freaking formal, doesn’t it? I’m a storyteller who hears teenager’s voices so loud I have to write them down. I love the idea of sports even though sports hate me. I’ve dabbled in everything from improv theater to film making and writing TV shows, singing in an all girl band to running my own hair salon. But always, always, writing books calls me home. I’ve had my sights set on world literary domination for a while now. Which means getting my books out there, to you, my darling readers. It’s the coolest thing ever, this job of mine, being able to tell stories I love, only to see them all shiny and happy in your hands… thank you for reading. As for the rest of it, I’m short (permanent), slightly round (changeable) and blonde (for ever and ever). I love to talk one on one about the deepest topics and can’t seem to stop seeing the big picture. I happily live on Prince Edward Island, Canada, home to Anne of Green Gables and the most beautiful red beaches in the world, with my very patient husband and four massive cats.
