Mary Simmons Thanks for your friendship. My Favorite author's second book Guardians of the Night ends up being an dark fantasy with many different elements in it. :) The heroic werewolves are waging war against the forces of darkness (Vampires, Demons, Witches & Ghouls.) There's some horror and romance too. Take a look. Keep on reading, just reading . . .
