The Shifter Chronicles Book 1
by Michelle Areaux
Genre: YA Fantasy Romance Thriller
As if on cue, a wild and ferocious animal broke through the brush and leaped through the air, landing only inches from where Asher and I were standing. It was a wolf, gray and brown with golden yellow eyes and a muscular frame. Blood dripped from the predator's sharp fangs. I couldn't help but stare in wild fascination as the animal sauntered toward us. Its grin seemed to grow with each deliberate step, as though the beast was mocking us. My heart began to race, and my breath faltered as I took in the beast gnashing its teeth in front of us. I could see its wild hairs as they moved in the wind as it stared at us, standing there, frozen with fear. I slowly turned my head to look at Asher, hoping he'd be able to offer me something to help calm my growing fear. Instead of seeing nervousness like I'd expected, I saw a fuming mad Asher staring daggers into the eyes of the wild animal across from us. I moved toward the animal and saw a similar heated and irritated glare staring back at Asher. It was as though the two were in a standoff, both equally livid and irritated by the presence of the other. My eyes found their way to the beast, and I couldn't help but linger on its shape, size, and color. One small glimpse into its golden eyes and I had no choice but to observe its every move. I watched its massive and muscular chest rise with rough breaths. I should have been stricken with fear. I should have been crying and begging the animal not to tear open my throat and eat me for a snack, but I wasn't. Instead, I regarded the animal with fascination. There was something about the creature that had lured me into its presence. Without thinking, I took a step forward, gaining the creature's interest. It tore its snarling gaze from Asher and seemed to calm as the golden eyes drank me in. "Elle, stop," Asher whispered. He reached out and grabbed my arm. With his movement, the creature growled and let out an ear-piercing and heart-stopping howl. I swear, it was as though Asher's grabbing me had enraged the animal. I knew that sounded wildly insane, but something was off about our encounter, and I couldn't stop myself from being drawn to its existence. "Watch out," Asher yelled again, pulling me protectively behind him. He stood tall in front of me, using his body as a shield, trying to form a wall between the beast and myself.

“Once Laney was gone, Loraine looked over at her family and I saw a fear strike her. Something inside of Loraine changed the moment Laney was gone. Falling to her knees, Loraine began to weep as anguish overtook her body. Rushing to her, the Witches fell with their grandmother and embraced her in a hug. As we all stood by and watched the reunion, it was almost comforting to see how this family that was once torn and full of hatred had found a way back to one another. I guess one person really can throw off the whole dynamic of a group; and when that happens, it is hard not to allow a cloud of judgment and hatred to overshadow the love that was once there. Now that Laney was gone and her spell disappeared with her, Loraine was able to see who really did love her. I believed Loraine was changed and would return back to the woman they had all once loved. The storm had died down and the sky was beginning to lose the darkness as the sun began to filter back into the afternoon sky.”
