by Judy Teel
A deadly disease from an unknown origin…
Addison Kittner and ex-FBI agent Cooper Daine arrive at Bone Clan expecting a warm welcome. Instead they’re imprisoned and placed under quarantine, where they discover that the werewolf mountain Clans are being decimated by a deadly plague which can’t be cured.
An old obligation that changes everything…
With only a few days to live, Cooper’s brother, Alpha of Bone Clan, asks Cooper to fulfill his promise, one that’s crucial to their Clan’s survival. But if he does, Cooper risks loosing Addison. Forever.
An ancient creature bred for genocide…
Determined to stop the plague and cure Cooper’s brother, Addison defies Clan law and sneaks away to an ancient ruin which might hold the key. There she discovers an unexpected link to her past and inadvertently calls forth an immortal monster that will destroy the paranormal races protecting humanity if it can’t be stopped.
But as Cooper and Addison battle to stop the annihilation of the Clans and the forces trying to tear their bond apart, something even more powerful and deadly gathers just out of sight…
And prepares to strike.
Interview with the Author:
1. How long have you been writing?
For more years than I want to count. I think the bug bit me at the age of six when my first grade class was asked to paint a picture and then write a story about it. My teacher seemed kind of shocked at the elaborate tale I ended up creating. For me, it was the first time I thought maybe school had something interesting to offer.
2. How long have you been a published author?
Since the summer of 2011 when I released the first book in my Cinderella Heiresses series. It completely terrified me, but I haven’t regretted a single bit of this amazing journey.
3. What titles do you have available?
Savage Magic is book 3 out of the 5 books I have planned for the Shifty Magic series. The order is:
1. Shifty Magic
2. Undercover Magic
3. Savage Magic
After that there’ll be Dark Magic and Deadly Magic.
4. What made you choose the subject of this book?
I wanted to do something different after writing my contemporary romance series, so I decided some kind of anti-hero would be fun. As Addison came to life in my mind, I started thinking about what kind of circumstances might have made her the way she was and over the next few days the Shifty Magic world sprang to life.
5. Do you have any new titles coming soon?
I’m currently working on Secret Magic, a novella about Addison and Cooper’s first case. Like all the Shifty Magic series books, it hits the ground running and goes from there. It’s been great fun working with an all-human Addison and exploring how it all started, including how she got her illegal but very cool gun.
6. What is your favourite genre and why?
Oh boy, that’s a hard question for me. I love so many different types of genres. I guess I would have to say that romance will always be a central favorite of mine, both contemporary and historical. That and fantasy are most of what I read from an early age on. But I also love mystery and occasionally thriller that dips into horror.
7. What, to you, is the most exciting part of the writing process?
Without question when I finish the first draft. Once I get through that step, I have a real live book to work with and I can go to town on it to make it better.
8. If you could co-author a book with anyone, who would you choose and why?
Mark Twain. The man was a genius storyteller. And what a great sense of humor. He’d be a blast to work with. I wonder how he’d feel about Urban Fantasy?
Directly across from us, the gates of Hell rose up — the doorway to Cooper’s hometown, so to speak.
Thirty-foot high stone walls stretched to the right and left until they curved out of sight. Standing between were the gates, made entirely of bones. Thick bones of varying prehistoric-level sizes that looked like they’d come from animals that had died out thousands of years ago, if they had ever existed outside of a fantasy book.
Two nasty looking Weres stood on guard duty, a female who looked like she ate scrap metal and pooped nails, and a bald guy who was built like a professional wrestler, or maybe a bull. His shaved head was covered with tribal tattoos that ran down his neck and over his arms to his wrists and he glowered at me as he stepped aside to let us pass.
Huge and sweeping, the Bone Clan fortress looked like it was designed to withstand a lifetime of sieges without batting an eye. And it was nothing compared to the sheer face of the mountain at its back and the three tiers carved into it.
“Welcome to Cha’dana.” Bald Guy shoved me in the middle of the back, forcing me to stumble forward. “Keep moving.”
The wind swept down from the cliff and rushed over us, sending a chill of apprehension across my skin. At least twelve times the height of the tallest building I’d ever seen in the city, the stronghold was beautiful, inspiring and terrifying all at the same time.
So much for finding safe haven with Cooper’s Clan.
