Prologue

Damian and Gale were walking down the streets of Chicago

"What the hell are we doing here again?" Damian asked.

"We are following the lead" Gale growled.

"Why do WE always have to do it? Why can't we just leave it be? There will always be another lead! I'm tired of chasing after people! It's like chasing our tails!" Damian said.

"Are you done yet?" Gale snapped "Any way don't you" Both boys stopped dead in their tracks. Gale lifted his nose to the air and inhaled deeply. Damian took an involuntary step forward as if pulled by the scent that only their enhanced noses could smell. "Damian we need to fallow this"

"Damn right we do!" Damian replied, his mood taking a complete one eighty turn. "Do you smell all that blood?"

"Yeah, if we don't get there fast there is going to be someone dead."

"If they aren't already, lead the way" Damian growled. His Orange eyes had grown very dark in the past couple of minutes. He was mad, no he was pissed.

As they ran Gale was thinking of whose blood was spilt this time. Gale's eyes had also changed. His eyes had changed from the mild annoyed blue to a midnight blue so dark one might call it black. They both hated when they had to deal with death. Though they didn't say it, they both knew that someone had already died. They could smell it the scent permeated the air like a thick morning fog.

They arrived at the steps of an old abandoned warehouse looking building. Only, they could both tell it was no longer abandoned. The smell of blood was leaking through every crack in the windows, walls, and doors. Gale growled and Damian swore. They both already knew that one or more were already dead inside. They also knew that they would have to kill who ever had done this. Gale started stripping after casting a quick glance around to make sure nobody could see them. Silently crouched in a corner by the stairs his bones started to change shape his anatomy changed. His body was calling towards the overwhelming smell of blood, his very essence attracted to it. Gale had transformed into a big sandy brown wolf in a few short seconds. He shot a look at Damian. Damian was a darker brown fluffy wolf with short hairs around his facial region and ears.

zoheusher20: What more can I say? The writing style and little details drew me into the book and for the entirety of the story I was Juliet. I felt her turmoil and emotions and every trouble or triumph as they arrived. This story was very different and had quite a few little but unexpected twists that made it...

maewilde25: I liked this, though it dragged on for over 200pages and heaven knows I did not expect the plot twist in the middle. David being Cristiãn. I was wondering when he would show up and didn't know he was there all along. it looks like there should be a sequel, please let there be a sequel. I know the...

Sandra Estrada: I loved every minute of it and I thank my lucky stars that brought me to the story, it's been a whirlwind of emotions, plot twist after plot twist but I never got tired of them.

Jason Phang: I'm pretty new to Inkitt (this is only my 4th book) and I must say I've been thoroughly impressed by the quality of the authors here. Remnants of Chaos is an excellently written book that hooks the reader, and doesn't let go. There are some grammatical and typographical errors, but nothing too se...

Roy Jenner: I was pleased to join the action where this B-17 was limping back across the English Channel defying all odds. Obviously written by a person more than familiar with the interior of the Flying Fortresses that were familiar in the skies of Southern England during World War 2. Plenty of action here ...

Alani Foreigner: I absolutely loved how you created this story. It isn't like the other cliché stories I've ever read. I had just started reading it yesterday and just had to finish it. The main characters are grotesquely awesome and I fell in love with them. If you're into fantasy and stuff I can guarantee that ...

Laraine Smith: Your story is both sweet and beautiful! You are a true artist! Keep up the great work! I also love the picture that you chose for your book! :)

Atractivo Sumit: The story is an amazing blend of what we call natural, plain romance along with subtle emotions and interesting twists. The plot is so beautifully interwoven.

annie08c: I really like this story, I can relate to it a lot and with how she feels, the boyfriend and the events that happened but I'm a little bit younger. It was really good plot, really liked how you stuck to the topic and you had a new title for every chapter making me guess what's going to happen. Ma...

Stephen Warner: To start off, I am thoroughly impressed. The writing style is somewhat unique, and the plot seemed to move at a nice and steady pace. However, I was not expecting this to be a vampire book! I am usually not one for novels about vampires, but I was pleasantly surprised! You wrote with such grace a...

SPepper: I had a hard time putting this book down even to go to sleep. The story is compelling and beautifully character driven. I hope author will make this a series.

OpheliaJones: This story took a different kind of spin on the "normal girl lives with definitely not normal guy" plot. The plot points of Frey's father, Liam's family, and Frey's view of Liam's world were good to read. She did not fall in love with him in the first couple weeks. Their lives were not smooth in ...

Giuliana Cassetta: My face is full of tears, I never cried like now with a book or even a movie. I loved every single chapter. I truly don't know what to say, I'm out of words and my eyes hurt from crying. Such an bittersweet story, it's so wonderful. One of my favorites for sure. Keep it up!
