My name is Zoe Tempest. Just let me say, I had no intention of becoming a vampire hunter. My world revolved around the trendiest clothes, the boy of the week, shopping, and texting. My life was as close to perfect as a seventeen year old can get. I had everything. Then my parents were murdered and my world came crashing down.
After their funeral, I went to live with my uncle Julian Kilmer. That’s when everything changed. In a manner more terrifying than anything I could have imagined.
His feet splayed his fist on his hips, he stood with his back to me facing the window. Power radiated from him. I could feel it like a cloak…or a shroud.
The wolves outside the window began to whimper and back away.
Icy fingers of fear crawled up my spine. The hair on my neck rose. Moonlight pooled around his tall muscled body and threw a long black shadow across the floor.
Inch by inch the wolves backed up, whining, uneasy. The thumping at the door ceased.
What the-? This is way past weird. I don't know of any pranics with this kind of power. I locked my wobbly knees and lifted my chin fighting against the trembles. I knew if I gave in to it, I would shake so badly, I'd be banging against the door like those ravening werewolves were only moments before.
I waited, dreading the moment he would turn to face me. The seconds stretched.
He swung around. His mouth closed. Relief like a monsoon swept through me. At the moment, I didn't think I could deal with the man of my dreams drawing back his lips and exposing fangs.
"What are you? Who are you?" I asked through chattering teeth.
