Quinn Loftis: A Letter From The Great Luna (Guest Post)
To my children,
This letter to you is to bring you hope, to shed some light into the dark place you now find yourselves standing. So much danger surrounds you all, so much strife and malice and I created you for such a time as this. Why, you might ask. Because the world needs you, the supernatural world needs you.
I have blessed you with strength, with the ability to become a strong, bold wolf, with mates who make you stronger and with love. I have given you these things so that when you found yourselves in a time such as this you would be able to stand up to evil and defeat it. I love each of you and I take joy in seeing you become the race I intended you to be. You are precious to me and I love you.
Be strong, be bold, be courageous for if are not, who will? Do not stop standing for what is right and do not back down when you feel that the darkness is going to overtake you for it is in those moments when everything is falling down around you and any semblance of hope is gone that your wolf will rise up and say not today, not on my watch.
Love your mates unconditionally as they are a gift and protect them as you would protect yourself. Remember I am always with you, I am always ready for you to reach out to me, you are never alone. I am always listening, always waiting and always loving.
The Great Luna
As one evil falls, another rises in its place. The powerful witch, Desdemona, has finally been killed by an alliance of wolf, elf, and fae. But Reyaz, brother to Cypher the warlock king, has vowed retribution for a life that was taken from him. Now Cypher must decide not only how to protect his newfound mate and his people, but also how to destroy the only family he has left.
Meanwhile, Jen’s pregnancy progresses and the fateful due date draws ever nearer. The thought of losing Decebel’s child constantly threatens to overwhelm her. With each passing day, Decebel grows more distant, causing Jen to wonder what toll the impending loss of their child is taking on him. Unbeknownst to Jen, in an act of desperation to protect his unborn child and mate, Decebel strikes a deadly bargain with the Great Luna—his life in place of his child’s. There is only one way for that to happen; the bond between he and Jen must be broken.
As Jen as Decebel struggle through their darkness, another kind of darkness is infiltrating Fane’s heart. Doubts and questions linger as he tries to cope with the emotions brought on in the aftermath of Desdemona’s curse. He knows what happened wasn’t real, but still he can’t rid himself of the terrible images seared into his memory. Jacque is his light, the one who keeps the darkness at bay, yet he won’t let her inside to do just that.
Sally continues to learn what it means to be a gypsy healer and Costin struggles to protect her as she runs full speed ahead to help her wolves, heedless of her own safety. She sees her best friends struggling, each enduring their own trials. She’s desperate to help them, but can she keep them safe?
With all of these things hanging heavy over the heads of the Serbia and Romania packs, their attention is divided. The wolves do not even realize a threat has slowly infiltrated their midst. Will they recognize the threat in time to save the lives that precariously hang in the balance?
Against this backdrop of darkness, choices will be made, fears will confronted, and the ultimate sacrifice will be made. Will the wolves stand together to defeat the threats arrayed against them, both from within and without? Will love conquer all? Or will the beleaguered wolves finally succumb to their demons?
“I hate to break into this obviously shocking moment, but could you please share with us what you know so that we can properly freak out?” Jen asked matter-of-fact like.
“It’s not something that is talked about, ever,” Elle told her.
“Well circumstances have changed, so I think it’s time to start talking about the fae’s dirty little secret.”
“I think we better all sit down for this,” Alina told the group.
“Crap,” Jacque murmured, “it’s never a good sign when they tell us we need to sit down.”
“Have to agree with you there wolf-princess. It usually means they’re about to drop a new supernatural creature in our laps and I swear if it’s a sparkling vampire then I’m going to push someone off the ledge of ridiculousness we are all perched on like morons,” Jen huffed as she sat on the ground, attempting at gracefulness, but failing miserably because of her swollen belly.
“Is it a giant centipede that releases slimy secretions as it crushes everything around it?” Sally asked.
The group collectively turned and looked at the healer with furrowed foreheads and raised eyebrows.
“What?” she mumbled. “It could happen.”
