    I'll start with two disclaimers: #1. This is my first attempt at science fiction/dystopia. #2. Grammar was my downfall in school. (I am working very hard at trying to improve it. If there are obvious mistakes, feel free to point them out. I generally don't get offended when people criticize, though of course, constructive criticism is better received.)

    I would like to give special thanks to two people I am privileged to know: Ithilwen and Menelve (not posting their real names to protect their privacy). You greatly helped me in writing a genre I knew very little about. Your advice and council was priceless and I am eternally grateful.

    One last thing. This story came to life when I discovered the rock band House of Heroes. Their music and their songs inspired, characters, scenes and even some of the dialogue. That is why I'd like to dedicate the book to them :) Thanks guys for writing such awesome music, you are greatly loved by this fan :)

 (if any of you like rock music, be sure to check them out)

  That being said, I hope you enjoy this story :) Thanks for stopping by.

Maria Guthmiller Conley: So wonderful to see that you can use the horrors of a life from a pack & build that character into an alpha of that same pack. The clan grew again by what...doubling! I'm looking forward to the war. They will win.

Maria Guthmiller Conley: I loved the chemistry & growth of all the characters. Their abilities intertwining making their pack strong. The clubs were a bit much. A to the death fight club, then sex club with children. I'm grateful it shows the dirt & grime of this world, but hard to read...yet still I couldn't put it down...
