"For the reader hungering for a change, Keith Gouveia offers an irresistible buffet of werewolf stories. Succulent and satisfying, fans of lycanthropes won't be able to resist digging their teeth into these tales." - Lorne Dixon, author of Snarl and The Lifeless
Crouched behind one of the few intact tombstones of Jefferson County's cemetery, Adam Corne followed the movement of his prey. It stopped and looked toward the crescent moon. He had learned the hard way which legends were true, and the cycle of the moon had no bearing on the wolf. With the creature in his sights, he fired. The bullet penetrated its hide, but slightly off target. It howled in pain and collapsed to the ground.
Gotta be fast, he thought. Can't believe I missed the heart. A mistake like that could cost me my life
He reloaded his shotgun as he ran toward the fallen beast. From this distance he saw the transformation was reversing, but the werewolf was still alive. An oversight he aimed to rectify.
By the time he reached his prey it was in its human disguise. The bullet hole in the center of her cleavage was no longer bleeding, the healing flesh pushing the silver bullet out of the wound.
My first female. I'd think her beautiful if I didn't know she was a monster. No ... snap out of it. She's already healing.
"You're making a mistake." The woman coughed blood onto her bare breasts.
She's stalling. He aimed his double-barrel shotgun at her heart. "The only mistake I made was not adjusting for the wind." He pulled the trigger, leaving a crater in her chest.
The moonlight refracted off the mushroomed backside of the silver bullet wedged in her heart. He pulled two more silver bullets out of his pocket, reloaded and waited for a moment with unblinking eyes.
It's done. He looked around. Not the strangest place I've found your kind in.
Since the loss of his daughter, Adam had hunted the supernatural beasts. There was nowhere he wasn't willing to travel. From the dilapidated church in New Mexico and the abandoned coalmine in Texas to this Wisconsin cemetery, no place was safe for the creatures.
They'll all pay.
