prologue

I ran as hard as I could knowing that if they caught me it would be all over, I couldn’t shift not now when they were so close. I stopped running then jumped into my den, its to small for the men and I can take out their dogs since they have to come one at a time in order to fit. I was quite strong, to the humans I’m a strange two tailed fox with a blue pelt so light in color its almost white. But I am much stronger than any normal fox, I was a spirit shifter, meaning I can change between being a human and my true fox self.

The men were right outside now I could smell the foul stinch long before they got there. “This is it boys we got him trapped, that sly fox isn’t getting away this time. Let loose the dogs.” One of the men ordered, as soon as the dogs were set free I heard the men draw their swords and make ready their crossbows. The first dog came around the corner and I jumped him tearing out his throught before he could even yelp. I crawled further into the den and waited for the other dog who arrived in time for me to leap foward and blind him. After knocking him to the ground I reached for his snote in an attempt to destroy his sence of smell but he went forward and I ended up taking his right ear instead.

He stopped and tried to turn around so that he could retreat back up the tunnel but I grabbed his tail and bit down hard I didn’t have enough room to rip it off so I just broke it when I slid under him. The hound flipped onto his back and let put a howl of shear pain. I allowed him to regain his paws and stumble back up the den to his waiting masters only for them to behead him for his failure. The archers amedeatly opened fire and their blazing bolts set the den ablaze with in minutes.

“That’s the end of that one,” they said after I started yelping do to the rapid approaching flames. Quikly I rushed to th back entrance of my den and burst out knowing I was out of sight of the humans but when I landed another dog was waiting with its jaws instantly grabbing onto my scruff and throwing me into a tree. I collapsed instantly in to much pain, “You never should have gone neer the humans, now I have to kill you.” To my suprised confusion I had thought her a dog but she was truly a wolf, and that was the last thing I was able to get before I felt a sharp pain from my throught and chest as she tore through my flesh and I faded into darkness..

Lauren Suzmeyan-Raine: I'm so glad you found a place to post your stories. I was horrified when I saw yours had been taken down, they are definitely the best 'reading' stories I've ever read. And I've made it my business to read every one I can. Well done.Lauren

It makes for a great read and the sequels are amazing. Totally worth reading. ^^ That's me trying to be professional. But in all hones...

Usagi Kita: This story is emotional from beginning to end. You get to watch the characters struggle and grow, maturing in different ways so that they come to be the people they are meant to be. Inea is insanely adorable, and his antics made me laugh more than once, and Kaedon is perfect for him in so many wa...

ga1984: I really enjoyed it! Characters were deep and plot was pretty complex. A bit on the violent side but it doesnt detract from the story. Very dark but situations make sense. Ends kinda abruptly and later chapters will need some editing work. I'm assuming there's more in the works?

Nymeria: Really can't get enough of this story. It flows well, it captivates the reader from page 1, and throws you into such a well-written, well conceptualized world that you'll believe it's real. Everything in the book is meshed together really well. From character backgrounds to plot twists, you can t...

Charlie_8472: Recommended to me by a friend, I thought I'd give this a read. As a hobbyist blacksmith, the blurb certainly caught my attention. I found the sentence about them drinking, dancing and fighting a strange combination of activities, perhaps a reflection of the writer’s personality and humour. Howeve...

FinnTH: I hope there is a sequel to The Knowing Ones because these characters are very distinct. The imagery of the forest and Adriana's connection to the woods is powerful.
