The Captive Shifter
Status: Expect to release this in March.
Caitlyn has come north to the castle of the Witch Queen, seeking a place as an apprentice witch, although she doesn’t seem to possess enough magical power to qualify. Kyle, a leopard shapeshifter in thrall to the Witch Queen as payment for aid she rendered to his pack, secretly assists Caitlyn in passing the tests for his own amusement. Yet Caitlyn has her own powers and a hidden reason for wanting free run in the Queen’s castle. These two outsiders are drawn together in a forbidden alliance, as time grows short for both. Can Caitlyn accomplish her secret errand on behalf of the goddess she serves before her true identity becomes known? Can she save Kyle from the fate the Queen has in store for him? Or will he have to kill Caitlyn at the Queen’s command in the final triumph of black magic?
