Over the past three months, twenty-six people had gone missing in the neighboring wildlife refuge—believed to have fallen victim to a vicious rogue bear.

Bryce McNeel and Jackson Campbell knew the truth... Read more of this blog post »

"Great series

This was a great 3rd book and I can't wait for the rest of the series. There is lots of information about the werewolves and less filler than most horror stories."

“If everyone you knew jumped off a bridge, would you too?

Well . . . that depends . . . what’s chasing us?”

“Karma is a tricky thing. To serve Karma, one must repay good Karma to others. To serve Karma well, one must sometimes deliver bad Karma where it is due.”

“A day later, when a pair of dark wolves came sniffing around, they found him. Lemmy couldn’t help but giggle with delight as they tore him apart and ate him. ***”
M.R. Mathias, The Emerald Rider

“Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
Rob Siltanen

Eve Paludan
“You have to change the way you handle your past or you’ll just keep using that same revolving door of all the familiar coping mechanisms that turn out to be mistakes for surviving the present.” “Like”
Eve Paludan, Finding Jessie
