Heart-stopping, tail-dropping adventure from award-winning children’s author WJ Scott.
FINALIST in The Wishing Shelf Book Awards UK 2017 9-12 yrs.
Sometimes loss is the only thing that saves you.
Last summer during the dreaded hunting season, Kywah lost his tail, his magic, and his value as a silvertail. Now the hunters have returned and he's terrified. Especially when he recognizes Samsa, the very hunter that cut off his tail, and ruined his life.
But when the pack becomes trapped in the foothills with no escape, Kywah realises he’s their only hope. Without a tail, he’s worthless to the hunters and their wizard masters. If he can escape, he can find help for his pack. All he has to do is locate the Wise One and retrieve the Deep Magic.
Which would be hard enough even if he still had the magical tail sense his kind are born with. But what choice does he have? If he doesn’t take the risk, his pack will lose everything. And because Kywah knows exactly how that feels, he can’t let it happen.

Excerpt Chapter One
âGet down,â Roz hissed, yanking on Connorâs black jacket. A spotlight swept over their heads, and he tasted dry earth as he flattened onto the sand.
âThat was too close,â Roz complained.
They skittered like cockroaches across the ground, avoiding a parked Humvee, and staying out of the guardsâ eye line. The things they couldnât avoid at the secret army facility in The-Middle-of-Nowhere, Nevada were surveillance cameras on every wall and post. Hence, the need for speed and an electro-magnetic pulse device the size of a suitcase strapped to Connorâs back. If they were caught breaking into Oleksander the Destroyerâs cell, theyâd never see daylight again. Sort of the way Oleksander had been in the dark of an army prison for the past twenty years.
Connor Beckett hadnât known six months agoâa lackluster engineering student at the University of Chicagoâthat the Seer Ilvane would write down his name and forever link him with the end of the human race.
Connor from Cleveland will release the Destroyer and bring about the apocalypse.
There wasnât any way to fix the prophecy and save the world except to kill the vampire lord.
âPush the button,â Connor said, nodding at the EMP. Thank the fates for Anton and Natasha, their very generous benefactors from New Zealand and their high-tech toys.
âPushing the button.â Roz activated the device, and every electric light on the base, hopefully the cameras and security doors too, blinked off. âNow,â she ordered. âMove.â
Nimble on the balls of his feet, Connor ran for building 2A, which he knew from poring over satellite photos of the installation, was where the army kept the vampires. He hunched over the card reader controlling the prisonâs heavy-duty outer door, sweat rolling down the back of his neck. âPlease,â he breathed. A single second delay while they stood like a couple of sore thumbs at the gateway to a vampireâs cell on a secret military base could ruin everything.
He hoped for the best and yanked. The immense door swung open on soundless hinges.
âI was only fifty percent sure the EMP was going to work,â Roz admitted as she followed him inside and sealed the door.

A truth more depraved, horrifying, and deadly than anyone could have ever imagined...
June, 2016, and pretty women are disappearing again. Just like they have been from the pristine Little Madrone River Valley every summer solstice day for the past hundred years.
It all started in 1917, when blasting for the hydroelectric powerplant at the headwaters of the river, known by the locals as the Boneyard, uncovered a bizarre cliff of glittering iridescent rare earth metals. Old timers believe there exists some sort of cosmic linkage between the disappearances and the cliff. Others suspect they’re the work of a crazed, multi-generational cult of solstice-worshipping serial killers.
The police deny the disappearances are connected. They attribute them to the scourges of modern life: drug addiction, broken families, prostitution, and the shiftings of an increasingly rootless and transient society. Twenty-six women, among them heiress Meredith, horror blogger Cherise, single mother Wendy, and waitress Rebecca, are about to discover the truth. A truth more depraved, horrifying, and deadly than anyone could have ever imagined...
Women are disappearing and have been for a long time. Who is taking them? And for what purpose?
An intriguing story with a lot of moving parts to it. The story follows multiple women as they are kidnapped by masked men. Each character had their own unique story and I enjoyed reading it. Not for the faint-hearted, as it contains a lot of horror elements, but a must for horror fans. Highly recommended.

Susan Clayton-Goldner was born in New Castle, Delaware and grew up with four brothers along the banks of the Delaware River. She has been writing poems and short stories since she could hold a pencil and was so in love with writing that she was a creative writing major in college. Prior to an early retirement which enabled her to write full time, Susan worked as the Director of Corporate Relations for University Medical Center in Tucson, Arizona. It was there she met her husband, Andreas, one of the deans in the University of Arizona's Medical School. About five years after their marriage, they left Tucson to pursue their dreams in 1991--purchasing a 35-acres horse ranch in the Williams Valley in Oregon. They spent a decade there. Andy road, trained and bred Arabian horses and coached a high school equestrian team, while Susan got serious about her writing career.
Through the writing process, Susan has learned that she must be obsessed with the reinvention of self, of finding a way back to something lost, and the process of forgiveness and redemption. These are the recurrent themes in her work.
Content advisory: The following book contains vivid depictions of gore, graphic sexual violence, endless mind games, will induce strangely beautiful feelings of paranoia, and lots of bad things. Really bad things. It's not recommended eating before, during, or after reading this story. Prepare for a one way trip to Hell.
Not by ghosts, but by a face I can't quite remember. Eyes that shine so brightly each time I see them, are now nothing more than a hazy memory.
The thoughts that whisper so quietly inside my mind when I'm sure I have this evil inside of me under control are becoming more persistent.
I know where I need to be, but not quite sure if I'll get there. Will she ever show her face to me or will I always only see a blank slate of nothing?
There are only a few simple things I know to be true:
I'm not a messy man.
I'm not a serial killer.
I can stop anytime I want to.
I am NOT crazy.
1) As a female horror writer what do you bring to the table in terms of what of you write?
Unrelenting gore. I don't hold back when I write because I feel like I wouldn't be doing my stories justice. I like to climb into the minds of my readers and jostle them around a bit while they wallow through the blood and horrific details to get to the "point".
2) Do you think female authors are underrepresented in the horror genre?
Uh yeah. This is not an easy genre to be in, but I like it because it's who I am and I refuse to sell out and go the easy route. Home is where the horror is.
3) Tell us about your book(s)
That's kinda open ended really. None of my books are the same. You won't read the same story twice because I have a lot of stories to tell and each character demands a certain way their story be told and how their legacy, for lack of a better word, is paved.
4) Why is horror writing important to you?
Because to me; it's the hard road.
5) Is the future of horror female?
I hope so, but I guess we'll have to see.
