Howler

It was a dark night in the Brazilian Amazon rainforest when deep from within the forest came a howl.

A howl of wolves.

For deep within the forest there was a cavern and in the cavern lived the grey wolves. These wolves were the most feared throughout the forest: for they were the most fearless; vicious and bloodthirsty wolves that would stop at nothing to get what they wanted.

The most vicious and fearless of the wolves was Darka. Darka had dark fur, was incredibly strong and he was the leader of the hunting party. Among the hunting party was a midnight black wolf with sharp fangs that could tear an animal to pieces in seconds, a red coloured wolf with claws that had immense power and a wolf that could kill without being seen.

There was also the messenger wolf called Tarran, who was trustworthy and extremely protective.

Midnight has just had a new male wolf pup, who tonight was getting his wolf name. In these occasion's the father would give the pup their name and in this case his father was Twilight, the leader f the pack. Outside the cavern in the light of the full moon Twilight called,

“Come forth my son, come my son, come, come, come”and out from the cavern came a little grey nose, then a paw and then another paw, and another and another. When the pup was in full sight,

“On this great night, let your light shine upon my son. For here upon this rock you were born and here you will one day die. Let the moonlight guide you for: be wise; be safe; be strong; be ready. And remember when you are alone or fighting for survival remember that you are my son and I will always be here for you. Go now, send your howl to the moon, my son, Howler.” So Howler stepped up and howled his heart out into the moon.

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly. I do not believe the author put the apostrophes in the names just to be unique, but because the characters are supposedly of a different race than humans. They are Anmah. They should have different names a...

Bri Hoffer: I couldn't put it down!! The characters are all incredibly likable, and it's so descriptive you can see, smell, and feel thier surroundings. Great story, and very well written. I cannot wait for follow up stories. there were a few grammatical errors, but nothing that I could move right over.

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 ...

Hudson: Your story was fantastic Erin! The Rising Sun was one of the first stories I read on Inkitt, and I have to say I don't regret the three to four days I spent pouring through the story.Probably the biggest strength I see in your writing is your characterisation of Eliana, Oriens, and the rest of th...

Mourn8220House: When first reading "Avarice," I thought it would be another fairytale but I was taken back the author's approach and choice of ending. There is little to be said for the story and overall plot besides the sudden twists and speculation, other than that I do not want to ruin a fantastic tale, you m...
