The first book in a dark, post-apocalyptic fantasy series following Tenn, a Hunter fighting against the monsters that have overrun the world and those who control them. As he tries to learn more about his magic, he falls into a deadly game of love and power between a fellow Hunter named Jarrett, and one of the deadly Kin, Tomás.
When magic returned to the world it could have saved humanity, but greed and thirst for power instead caused mankind's downfall. Now, once-human monsters called Howls prowl abandoned streets, their hunger guided by corrupt necromancers and the all-powerful Kin. Only Hunters have the power to fight back in the unending war, using the same magic that ended civilization in the first place.
But they are losing.
Tenn is a Hunter, resigned to fight even though hope is nearly lost. When he is singled out by a seductive Kin named Tomás and the enigmatic Hunter Jarrett, Tenn realizes he’s become a pawn in a bigger game. One that could turn the tides of war. But if his mutinous magic and wayward heart get in the way, his power might not be used in favor of mankind.
If Tenn fails to play his part, it could cost him his friends, his life... and the entire world.
Alex R. Kahler is many things, but first and foremost, he's a Sagittarius.
In the past few years he's taught circus in Amsterdam and Madrid, gotten madly lost in the Scottish wilderness, drummed with Norse shamans, and received his Masters in creative writing from Glasgow University. And that's the abbreviated list.
When he's not writing or climbing in the rafters, he's probably outside, staring at the clouds.
