Prologue

Summer 1980

Pain. Utterly indescribable, unbearable pain was the only thing that he could comprehend. Where was he? Who was he? At the moment he didn’t know.

LelandLL: At first, it was a story of humans vs werewolves and then it was uniting the both races. It had good prose, easy to follow along, punctation & grammar is good with the exception of not having a seperate POV at times but other than that. It is a good story.

Coached To Triumph: Interesting story, easy to read, good erotica, an exciting way to prepare for passionate evening. Would recommend it. The writer paints vivid word pictures.
