A Shift in Darkness
by Maddox Grey
Nemain has been hunting the merciless warlock Sebastian for decades. As a centuries-old feline shapeshifter, she is well acquainted with hunting dangerous supernaturals. But Sebastian knows her well, and he is always one step ahead. She will not give up, not after what he did… but her magic is spent, and it’s taking a disastrous toll.
Her friend insists she take a break and assigns her what should be an easy job. Escorting the magic-barren Kalari back to their home realm to find springs that can restore their magic would be the break Nemain desperately needs, even if it isn’t exactly her idea of a good time.
But the realm that had been decimated by volcanic activity isn’t the empty wasteland Nemain thought it was. Something still lurks there…and it’s hungry.
