We all know that life can change in an instant, and that those changes can be hard to reconcile while we’re getting used to them. This is the situation that Butch Montgomery, second in command in the Fallen Cross Pack, finds himself dealing with in ‘Bitter Beauty’.
A chance encounter with a new and different wolf triggers a whole lot of changes in the way Butch sees the world, and a shift of perspective for both himself and the stranger as the story unfolds.
Part of Aliya DalRae’s excellent Fallen Cross Pack series, this novella was first published in the brilliant fantasy/fairy tale anthology titled Once Upon A Fabulous Time, and is now available as a standalone story.
As an aside, if you’re a fan of reimagined fairy tales and fantasy stories, this anthology is well worth reading.
The story is well written, populated with likeable characters and filled with well-constructed moments of tension that really drive the momentum of the story. If werewolves and paranormal romance are your “thing”, you’ll love this book.
‘Bitter Beauty’ has been awarded a Gold Acorn.
