Prologue

All was quiet in the small town of Summer Falls. One of the most prominent members of the town was dead, and it was clear to everyone that there had been foul play. To the regular townspeople they feared that there was a murdered on the loose, but to the werewolves of the community they knew that it was hunters who had taken aim at their pack. Analie, the daughter of the alpha who had died, was only five years old and too young to take the position of alpha.

"What should we do," The beta, Josiah asked, "Analie is too young to be alpha, and she is a girl. The alpha is usually a male. Males are stronger than females."

The only female Council member glared at Josiah, her eyes flashing a bright luminescent green, "Hush, Josiah before your mouth gets in trouble. He does raise a good point, though. Analie is too young to be alpha. Without an alpha the pack will fall into chaos."

Nehemiah, another Council member sighed, rubbing at his temples. "Josiah can be alpha temporarily, until Analie is old enough."

"Are we going to ignore the fact that Analie is a girl," The oldest member of the Council asked and Jaria, snarled at him, her eyes narrowing. Marquis gave her an apologetic look, knowing that she hated that females were looked down on but females had always been considered weaker than men. "Jaria, you know it is true," Marquis said patiently, "Analie has always been a tiny girl and as a wolf she will be small. Even though she has alpha blood, I do not think she is strong enough to handle the alpha position on her own."

"So what," Jaria asked, "Is Analie never to become alpha? Even though it is her birthright?"

"I never said that," Marquis pointed out, "Once Analie finds her mate, then she can take over the position. But until that time, Josiah will be acting alpha."

Jaria scowled, but relented. At least they weren't completely taking the position from Analie.

The little girl would still have a shot at becoming alpha, as long as she found her mate.

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...

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.

MelanyFrey: This story is just so realistic and so amazingly written that I felt I was a part of it.

Alex Reltin: This is a great story! I love how well you go into detail and emotions of Capri, and Mel. You have amazing dialogue and overall it's just a thrill to read!The only critique I could find is that some of the paragraphs should be separated. For example:-"If Nia would have just let me take the car an...

LouiseJ2: I enjoyed the detail you went into with regards to the case. It made the UNSUB appear believable. The crisis in the middle of the story was my favorite part, very dramatic but not over the top. I feel like sometimes pairings can be overdone but I liked that some of the relationships were a little...

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...

GeorgeS: The author has a VERY refreshingly direct writing style. Sometimes being punched in the gut (or nose, as the case may be) can be an excellent thing, indeed. Whatever may be lacking in subtlety is more than made up for in the diamond clarity of character development. I look forward to MORE. I c...

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.

Elizabeth Robbins: 4.5 starsAs far as apocalypse stories go, this one took a new direction. I'm glad someone finally addressed the need for a vampire apocalypse!
