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.

Shifa Gohar: this book is my first on inkitt and I love it thoroughly...but i guess this is not the end. The characters were amazing the plot too. At times it scared me more than a horror movie would. Love the plot something i had not read in a while.

Felisa Yoder Osburn: I really enjoyed the story. Civil War stories are some of my favorites and the intertwining of the past with current times was wonderful. I look forward to reading the next stories.

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...

mitchreed519: Truly fantastic, I would buy this book and any other prequels or sequels there after. An empowering and intriguing novel, and well written. Best literature I've read in a while, beats out published books as well.

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...

CookieMonster911: The story overall was an adventure that is appealing to any age. The way the characters develop adds a more human characteristic to the novel. The writing style itself is amazing because you can learn every character's thoughts and emotions. The awkward love triangle and jerk moments adds to the ...

Alex Rushmer: This was not what I expected, but I enjoyed it a lot Malfoy was always one of the characters that I liked a lot, so I like that a lot of this happens between him and Colette. I read the first couple chapters, and I enjoyed your writing style and am excited to see where you take this story. My com...

Lydia Walters: I really enjoyed this novel. It gives us a view of what could be if we really tried.Also that there's nothing wrong with loving our LORD and our fellow humans. couldn't wait to get to each new chapter (mission). Thanks, Joe!

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...

ArgyrisMetaxas: Thrilling story which builds layer ontop of layer. A few mis spellings every few chapters.

This is gr...

Christopher Chew: Been a while since reading was this fun. The plot was easy to follow and built at a gradual but good pace.
