In Baskerville, a small village in the middle of nowhere, a myth has been handed down saying that it will be destroyed the day the beauty and the beast fall in love. No one really takes this seriously until one day...

On his 16'th birthday, Byron, alias Ron, discovers he is a werewolf. He cherishes his new powers that make him strong but he is shocked about his thirst for blood when full moon rises. His long-standing crush on the school queen, Mandy, is eclipsed when this mousy new girl, Sheena, joins his class and turns out to be a veela, an unearthly beautiful ghostlike creature who has incredible powers and the option of becoming immortal.

Veelas and werewolves have always been enemies but an irresistible attraction pulls Ron and Sheena together. They fight side by side against a pack of werewolves whose leader, Zeus, is determined to wipe out Baskerville. However, the myth comes back to haunt them because there are powers that they cannot control. Are they stronger than their love?

In the action-filled conclusion of the story, Ron and Sheena have a painful decision to make and they are confronted with some shocking surprises that forever change their lives.

I like Byron. He's a very 'real' character with a good deal of humanity and a darker side, too. Some of your dialogue needs punching up, but this is an enjoyable story.

I found this entertaining. I loved it and was hooked right away. Great way to start this. If you could read, "Demon," I would really love feedback on it. Thanks and amazing job!!!

I really enjoyed the prologue too! I especially liked the main character and the dialogue is very effective also with great moments of humour such as the bit about the dog and every dog being a bit spoiled in Chapter 1. Touches likes this add an extra layer to characters for sure.

Wow, this is good. Short, but had the ability to draw me into the story off the start. I know I wont be able to stop reading this one. If you could check out "The Sanctuary" it would be much appreciated.
