Greta is a werecat whose tribe plans to sacrifice her during the next full moon. Her only hope for survival is Dayne, a sorcerer who once massacred most of the tribe. What’s that thing they say about the enemy of your enemy?

Show Excerpt

ing packages by the door. Dayne didn't know what the fuss had been about. The man's hair had regrown in a mere matter of months.

"Just a moment, please."

Whoever was calling after midnight could only be bringing trouble with them. For a while, after what was later called: the tribal massacre, the lone hero had darkened his door, convinced Dayne was up to something nefarious and had to be taken down. Or another Cary Town villain decided to rise to infamy and needed Dayne out of the way to do it.

He'd eventually managed the right formula on the wards, and most steered clear, deciding it wasn't worth it. It had been quiet for the past decade. Either the wards were working or he'd been deemed irrelevant. Either way was fine by him.

The wards dropped as Dayne opened the door to reveal a diminutive black cat with bright golden eyes sitting primly on the middle of his front stoop. She blinked up at him full of rehearsed pet store innocence, her tail wrapped around her tiny paws.

Paulo Respighi

Vampire/magician/shapechanger stories are not something I seek out. They bore me. This one had a plot that kept me guessing (what was Simon's plan? who was in on it? who could be trusted?), a couple of good characters, a little sex, and no werewolves (she was a werecat).
It's set in a strange American town where almost everyone is a vampire, a were-something, or a sorcerer, and has arbitrary rules everyone knows and obeys. It was good.

Really really enjoyed this short story, wished it was a lot longer to get to know the other characters a bit more, the background and how they all fit in.
