*BONUS NOVELLA–Alpha Ascension*
A millennium ago, an Igbo god fathered three sons–a jackal, a coyote…and a wolf.
As the new alpha of his wolf pack, Xavier Wesley wants nothing more than to follow in his uncle's footsteps and make his elders, and the great guardian, proud. But his family and a rival alpha seem to have other plans for him, and as his world slowly starts to crumble around him, the werewolf king informs Xavier that their realm is under attack by the Lion Head–a sinister creature controlled only by the one who summoned it.
The king needs a hero and he's chosen the reluctant alpha to save the kingdom.
But just as the conflict with Xavier's rival heats up, a beautiful human named Karis Mickelson comes to Mirage and complicates every relationship in his life. Danger isn't far behind and after his pack is ambushed by the black spirits who serve the Lion Head, Xavier realizes he has no choice but to submit to his king's wishes. But Xavier's growing connection to Karis threatens to upend his entire world, coming between him, his pack, and his duty to the kingdom. If he can't manage to take control of his feelings and honor his true purpose, then the darkness just might win.
And everyone will die.
