​Supernatural Chronicles: THE WOLVES Synopsis:

For far too long, Sundae Grayson has lived under the tight control of her father and the wolf pack he leads. At twenty-two and with college degree in hand, she’s ready to embark on a journey of her own. But when her father is attacked and nearly killed, she finds a cryptic note in his pocket—a riddle she must solve to save him. Doing so means delaying the life she desires, but her father is worth it. Not to mention that if he dies, she becomes alpha, and she’s so not ready for that. Thank the Angels for Trevor, leader of his own pack and her lifelong crush, who volunteers to help her.

The riddle sends them on the hunt of their lives. After all, they must solve the mystery, find the relic they need, and deliver it on time to save not only their packs, but all of the Amadis, who serve as the Angels’ army on Earth. If they fail, the Demons will win over the world. But what must be sacrificed for the sake of the greater good?

This novella takes place in the internationally bestselling Soul Savers series by Kristie Cook, so be prepared to see some favorite characters. The story's timeline falls between Promise, Book 1, and Purpose, Book 2.

If you’re new to the Soul Savers series, discover the rest, where you'll meet more than werewolves, but also vampires, witches, and warlocks. The further you get into the series, the more creatures you'll discover, including shapeshifters, fae, sorcerers, angels, and demons.

Excerpt from The Wolves, the second part of Supernatural Chronicles: The Collection
By Kristie Cook

Sundae and Trevor, from The Wolves, are originally from my Soul Savers world. Sundae is a minor character who makes only a couple of brief appearances in the main series, and also shows up in a couple of the short stories in Wonder, a collection of shorts from the same world. I’ve wanted to explore her story about how she became alpha of one of the largest and oldest packs in my world, and this project gave me a perfect opportunity. I love seeing this younger, more innocent side of her. Here’s an excerpt:

Gray knelt on the front lawn with Dad lying in his arms.
I nearly dropped my bike as I launched off of it, barely pausing long enough to release the kickstand. Then I sprinted up the lawn, my feet crunching on leaves recently fallen from the two oak trees in the front yard. My breath caught as I fell to my knees in front of Gray.
“What . . . what happened?” I stammered as my eyes took in the gruesome sight before me. Although my father should have quickly healed any injuries on his own, he looked broken in every possible way. His skin bled, his legs were twisted in disturbing angles—halfway between human and wolf—and his chest caved inward, barely moving with his breaths.
“Daemoni, of course,” Gray answered, his thick, muscular arm cradling Dad’s head. The stench of our enemies hung thickly, overpowering the fragrance of smoke and fire. “Dad was waiting for you, but they showed up instead. And attacked for no reason.”
“No,” Dad wheezed. I hadn’t realized he was even conscious. His eyelids slowly lifted, revealing his dark eyes, so much like mine. “Not . . . for no . . . reason.”
“It doesn’t matter,” Tammi declared from behind me. “We’ll take care of them. Time to hunt some Daemoni.”
Other members of the pack rumbled and snarled in agreement, everyone chomping at the bit to take their revenge. But nobody would move until Dad gave the order.
His eyes fell closed again, and my heart flipped over when they didn’t open.
“Daddy?” My throat was too tight to manage much more. “No . . . please.”
“Sundae,” he whispered, “be good. Leader. You will . . . I know.”
I shook my head violently. “No. Don’t say that. It’s not my time. You’re still here with us. Let your body heal. You’ll be okay.”
My voice became mangled as I tried to be strong for him, although I wanted to cry like a little girl.
His hand, with claws partially out, grasped for mine. I wrapped both of mine around his, and he gave me a squeeze.
“The time has come,” he said, his voice gravelly. “I’ve told you it would. You . . . you do as . . . I taught you. Take care . . . of Gray. Take care . . . of the pack.”
I swiped my face against my shoulder, trying to hide the tears that had succeeded in falling. “We’ll be here, Daddy. All of us waiting for you. Just concentrate on getting better.”
“No, Sundae.” He suddenly sounded stronger, his grip tighter. “Listen to me. It’s time. They want the light. You must protect the light. Or everything will be lost.”
I had no idea what he meant, but I nodded anyway. “Okay. Protect the light.”
“Do you understand?” he demanded. “It’s more important than anything. I need you to do this to save us all.”
“I understand,” I insisted, trying to hide the lie. “Please, Daddy, don’t worry anymore. Just get some rest.”
He stared at my face for a long moment before his head moved in what I assumed to be a nod. “Thank you, baby. I love you both. I trust you to do this, and when the time comes, I know you’ll be a good alpha.”
His eyes closed and never reopened.
