Legend tells of the hidden wolf-people who live among the forests. They have mighty claws, large teeth and become human with the moon. But, to Lucia Perez, the wolf-people are a myth her grandmother told her during her childhood to scare her into going to bed. When Lucia discovers her best friend, Cody Colfax turns into one when the moon is full; things get complicated. When Cody mysteriously goes missing, and Lucia gets blamed for his murder, many unfortunate events have her fearing for her life. A mysterious ghost haunts the citizens of St. Maria and creates a rift between the human world and the spirit one. When the two worlds are unbalanced, Lucia finds herself going on an impossible quest to end the reign of terror on St. Maria.View More
Peace stretches across the Saint Maria Valley. The wind whispers of future generations to come. Our time with the unicorns must come to an end. "Well, the war is over. I am happy the unicorns can live in harmony with the forest again. Where will you go, Lucia," Queen Ursa asks as she prepares to say her good byes?"I have a wedding to prepare for and a clan to rule over with Cody.""So you've decided to stay with them after all? That's a relief. I am happy for you. I'd stay for the wedding but the unicorns have been away from their forest duties long enough. It's been a grand time. If you are ever in trouble, all you need to do is just ask and I will be there. I've grown fond of you, Lucia. Take care of Cody. He needs you now more than ever."I hug Queen Ursa as tightly as I can. Perhaps I've over done it. But it is what it is. We are friends forever now. Her golden horn touches my shoulder as she blesses me with one more gift of unicorn magic. "I will take care of them all, I promi
I've never had a moon goddess take over my body before. I've never had a lot of things happen to me before. If the last year of my life has proven anything to me, it's that unicorns, werewolves, and ghosts are all real. The nightmares that exist in my story books are all true. Those authors knew something about the world that the rest of us could only dream of.Perhaps there is truth in all fairy tales and when the war is won, I wish to find out if mermaids exist in the dark corners of the ocean. Elder magic could help me swim down to Atlantis and let me greet them with a salty kiss. The moon goddess is strong with the tide and her bonds with wolves are eternal. I can hear Lady Luna's thoughts as she leads the Wolf People Clan and unicorns to war. Her thoughts are loud and tell me her story. She fell in love with a sea captain and when he wouldn't marry her, she became heart broken. His name was Duncan McGuire, he was an Irish smuggler. When a ghost came to kill Duncan, Lady Luna, wh
A great chieftain has passed away. The great green dragon along with the werewolf clan members collect logs and firewood. The unicorns collect flowers varying from roses to daisies and line them up in a circle. The Wolf People Clan take the logs and stack them up high. A pyre is made for the chief. The Wolf People clan members howl to the moon goddess and I sing with them. No magic spells, or Elder magic, or unicorn magic could have saved Chief Wolfpaw from his fate. In his final days he was tired and weary and his limp grew ever more so. The hairs on his head are all silver a sign that life is no more. His eyelids are shut and his hands are folded across his chest like an ancient Egyptian mummy. The unicorns use their horns and continue to gather flowers. They place the flowers near the base of the pyre. Queen Little Bird is summoned to attend her husband's funeral. Her tears are large and she distances herself from Cody. I don't know Queen Little Bird at all. In my interactions w
The war has started sooner than any of us have anticipated. I thought it was days away and that I had more time to rest, and more time to prepare. That's the thing about war, no one is ever truly prepared for it. It sneaks up on your restlessness when you least expect it and it pounces on your fatigue with all it's might. The moon is out and the shadow of the great green dragon is at the center of the moon. His wingspan is fully extended. He is the only creature who is not frozen in time by my elder magic spell. "Witch girl, did you pause time," the great green dragon asks? "Yes, Draco. I did. Can you give me a lift? I need to get the luna lilies out of the Ghost's hands before the spell wears off." Without hesitation or answering my request verbally he lifts me with his claws onto his back. I've never touched the scales of a dragon before. They are bumpy like my grandma's old leather alligator purses. The texture of his scales leaves indents in my skin, and his breath forces his
We march to the Saint Maria valley. I do my best to learn my elder magic spells while riding on Cody. The great green dragon flies above us and glides with the wind. Anyone who believes in magic can see him. He is out in the open and exposed, but perhaps that doesn't matter. Perhaps his hovering above us will make our enemies cower in fear. We will deal with the Ghost first and set the spider horde ablaze. They will catch fire and we will win. We will defeat the spiders. I suspect that will be the easiest part of the battle. But the worst part of the battle will be when we face the Ghost. She may have consumed the luna lily by now. If she has the dragon, the elder magic I possess, and all the unicorns combined might not be enough to win. Another battle after that waits for us. The one of who will rule over the Saint Maria forest and who will become Chieftain after Chief Wolfpaw. That's the battle I fear the most. It's the battle that determines my fate. The role I will play will be
Queen Ursa of the unicorns pushed me through a magic portal. I told her not to get involved in the political affairs of werewolves. But the truth is she did interfere and paid little attention to the warning I gave her. She sent me back to the Wolf People Clan, which can only mean one thing that my uncle the Chief has no intention of listening to me or taking my requests seriously. The last thing my uncle will ever do is respect anything I ask for. He wears his chief title proudIy and ignores his family members. I sometimes wish I could punish my family for the way they treated me my whole life. I am not a prince, I am not a king, or a chieftain. I am merely related to those who rule by blood. Blood is the only thing that has allowed me to respect them up to this point. But when Chief Wolfpaw joined with the unicorns, I knew he had something else up his sleeve. I wouldn't be surprised if my uncle died within the next fortnight. He's become weak in the last few months of travel while
The unicorns and the werewolves gather together beneath the Luna Mountain. Ursa the queen of the unicorns is ready to take them into the heart of the mountain. I am not ready to enter a cave again. Last time I entered a cave the great Grizzly tried to kill me and Chief Wolfpaw. It was then I discovered my powers, the powers of the Elder. I didn't know I was a witch but I do now and this time I shall use my magic to defeat my enemy within the cave. No one has told me what this supernatural magical weapon is that will defeat the Ghost but I shall soon find out. Perhaps he is a vampire that has made peace with the Wolf People Clan. Perhaps there are fairies or mermaids inside the cave. The Elder magic within me speaks to the magic of the unicorns and it prepares itself to defend itself from the great magic source within the mountain. I've never met cave creatures before perhaps there's a goblin inside the mountain. There could be elves or dwarves for those things might be real too. Who'
The light of the morning sunrise is orange and purple like the paintings from my grandmother's old art museum books. The great painter has done his work again and has stretched his colors across the horizon. I can see my breath this morning, autumn maybe here but winter is coming. Winter is hard on the Wolf People Clan, they spend most of it in their werewolf form. Their fur keeps them warm, and I will spend most of my time by the large fire in the great hall beside Cody and Chief Wolfpaw. But not today, today we are still marching toward the promised magic that will deliver us into victory against the great evil of the Ghost. Nothing frightens me more than Rosemary. No amount of elder magic can calm me in my sleep. I spend the day reading my spell books and practicing magic on top of Cody's back. No matter how much I practice, I will never have a mentor to guide me in the ways of spell making. "Lucia, magic can not be self taught. You have to want it. You have to need it and you ca
