“I am sorry wolf but I will make this quick, I promise you won’t suffer!” The figure exclaimed.
I circled the figure dressed in ebony, a silver snarling wolf hung around his neck, his sword held low and I knew soon enough I would be breaking that blade between my teeth. My paws thudded against the floor and my claws created sparks. I was dancing with The White Wolf , I raced at him and attempted to bite into his arm, he attempted to swing his blade towards me but I bit into his wrist tearing the muscle, causing him to drop the blade. He then hit me around the face with the metal gauntlet on his other hand splitting my eyebrow. He caused me to back off slightly. I shook my head in disorientation since he had bumped my head pretty hard.
I backed off pining. Once I felt focused I just ran at him again his eyes met mine and I realised he could see into my soul and he realised I was innocent. I only killed the towns people because I was defending myself. His blade still scraped across my stomach regardless causing me to pine and hit the floor with a thud. I pined and I saw him advancing towards me I tried to run but I couldn’t my paws wouldn’t support me.
So I changed into my human form. “You’re a young woman!” He exclaimed.
“No...one told...y...you!” I wheezed.
“No I was told you were a vicious beast and you need to be stopped” he soon lowered his sword and only advanced but I kept backing off, I reached a pond but my blood just began to flow into it. “You’re no monster that I was led to believe” he told me.
He was about to slide his arms under my body to pick me up but I just detested but he nearly dropped me as I wriggled out of his arms.
“Phoenix get down from there!” Geralt yelled at me as I had climbed a tree in my wolf form, he asked me to see over the horizon so I did. “You know if you fall it’s going to be me who has to heal your wounds again!” He exclaimed.
“Yes who else” I whined.
“How the hell have I put up with you all these years!” He sighed.
“Because I always kill things for you” I smile.
“You know if you don’t come down right now, you can clean my swords, and Roaches tack for two months!” He said sternly. So I just got down from the branches landing on my feet.
“Where are we going?” I asked.
“Novigrad” he answered tightening Roaches girth.
“Why there?” I moaned like a child.
“Because we have a job” he replied. “Can I ride on Roach?” I asked.
“No, you can shape shift so you can run on your paws” he told me.
“Geeeerrrraaaalllltttt” I whined.
“No” he answered.
“Fine” I growled turning into my wolf form, Geralt mounted his steed and kicked his horse in the ribs causing him to rear up and gallop off, so I had to run at his side and the damn witcher knew I hated to run at this pace.

Everything in the book is meshed together really well. From character backgrounds to plot twists, you can t...
ernbelle: When I first started this story I was a little unsettled by all of the information that appears in the prologue, and wasn't sure if I would continue. However, I am very glad I did.

mullikin902: Do not start reading this book unless you have enough time to finish it in one sitting, because you will not be able to put it down! Superlative! Addictive! Deliciously wicked characters you can't get enough of. Impatiently waiting for the sequel!
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...
Catherine Kopf: Wow! This was a really great story. I really enjoy reading fantasy, so it didn't take long for me to become invested in the book and its characters like Jacob. I really liked your writing style, and it seemed to flow very well. The descriptions that you used for your world were also created n...
Jessica Esa: With a tantalising end to the first chapter, the authour has given us a treat and a welcome addition to the fantasy adventure genre. To limit it to just such would be an injustice however, as this novel clearly draws on elements of historical fiction, fairy tale and horror. Simply, there's someth...
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...
catd69: Karim is a very talented writer. When I started reading his journey it took me into the book and I was in the story till the end. I've never felt this way with any other writers stories. If you want to read a gripping adventure, this will be the one book I would suggest you pick.
the unedited writer: It's a guilty pleasure. The characters are brought to life and you find yourself loving them worrying for them and so on. The plot was serious but at the same time it had a light tone that didn't make you depressed as other drama genres. 5 stars for me
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.
