Upon a dark and blood-filled hour, humanity's doom will rise to power.

Werewolves are real. They haunt the woods of North America, feeding on the bodies of humans stupid enough to blunder across their paths. Once rogue and uncoordinated, the rise of their goddess Alsvinth has brought them all together, with one goal: destroy as much of the species as necessary to enslave them within meat farms, to feed the werewolf army taking over the world.

Olivia, a werewolf from western Canada, and her brother Charlie set out to kill the goddess and save humanity. But can the werewolf and human destroy the goddess’s power, or will she prevail and turn the planet into a wasteland? 

Excerpt 

"Enough, Olivia," a familiar voice hissed.

I stopped, shocked and scared to stillness. I started to cry as the goddess stood in the grass, kicking Charlie's body aside and sauntering over to me.

"Thank you, children of the sky," Alsvinth purred, resting a hand on the shoulder of each harpy. They let me go as she touched them. "My, Olivia. How you've grown."

I was still. I couldn't even think.

"Well, not really. You don't age anymore, do you?" She grinned. "Like me, eternally beautiful."

The creature in a woman's skin touched my forehead, and I couldn't even flinch from her cold, dead fingertips.

"No matter. You will become my second-in-charge. You have been so faithful as to convince the rogue to kill himself to strengthen me." She kissed my forehead. "Dear Olivia," she said as the obliviousness of her mind control took me, threw me to the wolves.

"You are mine."

So what now? You've read the story, reached the end and wondered at how the second book will go.

Well, I'm sorry to tell you all that there is no second book, at least, not yet. The fun of Blood Moon was always that there is no end to the war, for man or wolf. There isn't even a real show of the war between men and wolves, let alone its ending.

While Blood Moon was being written, I always had in mind to leave the most open ending I could, while actually ending the story. And it is. Olivia's story is kind of finished, as is Charlie and Angela's. But the story of Alsvinth and the Were-War, that's more open-ended than anything I can think of.

So maybe there will be a sequel, somewhere down the line. We'll see.

So who would have won? I'm not going to answer that at all. What I am, however, going to do, is direct you all towards my website where you can discuss who would have won and why – and go into the draw to win a copy of the Tyrant of Tarsit.

Have a look. Who would have won? Give me your best shot!
