An Eye of the Storm Novelette


Four months have passed since the night of the fatal storm, and "peace on earth" has never felt so good despite the pack's sorrow at the loss of family and dear friends; sorrow that cut deeply over Christmas, and during last week’s wedding.


Mated to three, and now married into the Gunvald lineage, Lydia has taken comfort and security in her she-wolf, the animal's strength and wisdom taking her deep into the still-uncharted territory of Lawrence's wooded home – now her wooded home.


But storms come in many guises, and as the January snow clouds gather overhead, Lydia's finally forced to confront the secret she's been keeping from everyone, including herself.


Publisher's Notes: After the Storm is a series of novelettes that take place at relevant points in the immediate months and years after Eye of the Storm. They concentrate on the healing our characters need to go through after everything that happened. They all stand on their own and do not need to be read in any order, nor do they need to be read to understand any of the other series set in this world - they are additional reads for fans. And for anyone who doesn't wish to read them, the healing simply takes place off-stage.

Now a Netflix film starring Sandra Bullock, Sarah Paulson, Rosa Salazar and John Malkovich!

Written with the narrative tension of The Road and the exquisite terror of classic Stephen King, Bird Box is a propulsive, edge-of-your-seat horror thriller, set in an apocalyptic near-future world—a masterpiece of suspense from the brilliantly imaginative Josh Malerman.

Something is out there . . .

Something terrifying that must not be seen. One glimpse and a person is driven to deadly violence. No one knows what it is or where it came from.

Five years after it began, a handful of scattered survivors remain, including Malorie and her two young children. Living in an abandoned house near the river, she has dreamed of fleeing to a place where they might be safe. Now, that the boy and girl are four, it is time to go. But the journey ahead will be terrifying: twenty miles downriver in a rowboat—blindfolded—with nothing to rely on but her wits and the children’s trained ears. One wrong choice and they will die. And something is following them. But is it man, animal, or monster?

Engulfed in darkness, surrounded by sounds both familiar and frightening, Malorie embarks on a harrowing odyssey—a trip that takes her into an unseen world and back into the past, to the companions who once saved her. Under the guidance of the stalwart Tom, a motely group of strangers banded together against the unseen terror, creating order from the chaos. But when supplies ran low, they were forced to venture outside—and confront the ultimate question: in a world gone mad, who can really be trusted?

Interweaving past and present, Josh Malerman’s breathtaking debut is a horrific and gripping snapshot of a world unraveled that will have you racing to the final page.

Comprising all six volumes in one huge edition: Releasing The Wolf, Cry Of The Wolf, Heart Of The Wolf, Return Of The Wolf, Rise Of The Wolf, and Reign Of The Wolf

Lydia, a twenty-five year old waitress, is battling with chest pains, and a sorrow which never healed when her mother committed suicide ten years ago. To top it all off, the highly erotic dreams she's had since she was fifteen, of a faceless but hot-as-sin, older guy called Ryan, is getting out of hand - way out of hand. He knows her better than she knows herself; he's her best friend, even though he's a figment of her imagination - she might even love him - which means she needs therapy, and therapy is just what she intends to get, even if she can't afford it.

Enter Taylor with his kind, but mournful forest-green eyes. There's an instant connection; he warms her core. But more than that, he's looking for a Ryan who was kidnapped ... which surely must be coincidence because her Ryan isn't real.

Then, there's Taylor's friend, Lawrence, with his icy arrogance, and emotional distance - the bastard sets Lydia's pulse racing as well as her ire; calls to a part of her she can't quite fathom.

Ryan's also calling from beyond her consciousness - she can't resist his plea for help...

The full moon is rising. So are her chest pains, and her perplexing state of arousal... Lydia's world is about to get a whole lot bigger.

Deadly family secrets, an unforgiving ancient mythology, and monsters - both human and created - striving for species dominance, ensure the next few weeks will bring one hell of a storm into their lives. When all hangs in the balance, what do you sacrifice for those you love, and the future you want?

Emotional, humorous and highly erotic in places, Eye Of The Storm is dark paranormal fantasy, not for the faint of heart.

NOTES: This is an adult paranormal fantasy novel at approx. 450,000 words, containing scenes of explicit sexual content and some violence, entwined with romantic elements. Some scenes may disturb some readers. Written in British English.
