Really Good Story
I love this! You craft such a compelling narrative, interweaving a subtle air of enigma into it, culminating in the amazing reveal. You have a beautiful, almost sensory turn of expression that transports the reader into the story, allowing them to experience every visceral aspect- the description of the transformation near the end is wonderful! . I love the character of Amara and her solitary personality and how you interlink the descriptions of the landscape to her inner emotions. Her interactions with Jinx are intriguing too and how he fits into her internal conflict about her true nature.

There's a few spacing/punctuation errors here and there, but nothing that detracts too much from your riveting story. This is a great start- I really hope that you write more of this.
