Fragment Friday #2: Shadow on the Moon by Connie Flynn

Click Here to Buy

This week's fragment is from my first paranormal book, SHADOW ON THE MOON, a story about a wolf biologist who intervenes in an Arizona wolf hunt and the tormented man she encounters who desperately needs her to regain his humanity. SHADOW ON THE MOON is on sale for 99c today. Scroll down to the bottom of the blog to visit the other author's websites. They each have fragment for you.

This fragment shows Morgan Wilder being transformed into a werewolf.

His eyes snapped open and he stared in unspeakable horror. Where hands once were, he saw hair and claws—large, powerful claws that could rip a throat apart. A crazed laugh bubbled in his throat, but when he opened his mouth only a groan emerged.

"Your alchemization’s complete, Morgan," Lily said from above him.

"You are one of us now."
She stood in the perimeter of his vision, a silhouette against the dark woods. Behind her, a bat darted for the trees and he could see each rib of its small wings, see its tiny feet drawn close to its body. It was all so clear, he'd swear the sun was shining.

Lily bent to stroke his head. Red glinted off her ebony eyes. Her touch repulsed him. Instinctively, he turned his head, snapped at her hand. He caught a tuft of fur.

She laughed. "Ah, you are angry. But you will grow accustomed to this new life."

He wanted to speak of his bewilderment, to tell Lily that her murky robe now looked like a coat of silver-white hair, that her teeth had grown long and sharp. But he could utter only a series of whines.

"Your skepticism is refuted." Lily's mouth widened into a beastly smile. "You are mine now, my darling Morgan. For many, many glorious lifetimes."

"No-o-o-o!"

And elsewhere, by those brave enough to live in the perilous mountains, were heard the echoes of a night beast's agonized howl.
