Leona Schaeffer is more. More than a seventeen-year-old girl. More than a lonely orphan.

She’s a Werewolf Warden. Inheriting an ancient strength and an ancient burden.

Summoned to the frantic streets of Gilded Age Boston, Leona must enter a world as unfamiliar as it is wondrous. A world of danger, populated by sheep in need of a shepherd.

Without the benefit of a mentor, Leona struggles to continue the noble legacy of her parents: Help the weak. Protect the innocent. Exact mercy. Maintain the peace.

Sadly, not everybody wants peace.

Despite the burden of her heritage, Leona is headstrong and pure-hearted. But can she resist the forces threatening to tear apart everything and everyone she cares about? Death, failure, heartache, responsibility, and family trouble conspire to tarnish Leona’s good intentions.

Mercy is required.

So, Hero…

“So, hero, are you going to visit?” Nate asks.

Jaycee eyes her purple notebook and winks.

“Of course. I have a story to tell her.”

At A Distance

 “The Cloak of Dreams?” Li asked.

“It’s a story about an emperor with a sad dilemma,” Ellen explained to Li. “He loved his wife very much, but she had a dreaming soul.  When he held her in his arms, her soul wandered far away to her dream world.  So she spent five years embroidering the images of her dreams onto a cloak and presented it to the emperor.  If he wore the cloak, no longer would she have to choose between the path of her dreams and the path of her love.  If he didn’t wear the cloak, he could hold her, but her soul would continue to wander.  He chose to wear the cloak.”

“And she followed him at a distance for the rest of her life,” Ainsling finished explaining to Li.  “It’s the sacrifice he makes because he loves her.  She can’t touch him, but they are closer than ever.  Isn’t that beautiful, Li?”
