First of all, a very Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads in the world!
I’m only going to be able to share a few more excerpts with you from the Shifter and Girl-with-a-Secret story because pretty soon it all gets spoiler-y AND I decided to make this my next project to finish. So, today I’ll give you a bit more from Caitlyn’s conversation with the Shifters from the North who came to demand Kyle’s release. One more excerpt next week and then we’ll retire it until the novel is done! I’ve really appreciated all the encouragement from everyone to go ahead with the book…
(Kellan is the leader of the party of shifters and Kyle’s brother.)
“Kyle has endured much during his captivity here and weakens day by day now. The cat is certainly near to collapse,” Caitlyn said, gazing at Kellan. “The Witch Queen doesn’t let him run as a leopard, not ever.”
The men swore bitter oaths. Caitlyn felt power swell in the room, fueled by their anger, and her own magic flared in response.
“You speak as if you’d seen the leopard but if he can’t shift, how is that possible?” Kellan asked.
“We have a connection, meeting in the dreamspace sometimes,” Caitlyn said. “I saw the leopard there.” From the way the men exchanged surprised, surreptitious glances, she could tell the information carried unknown significance for her audience.
