(Keeper of the Watch, #2)
Publication date: October 10th 2019
Genres: Urban Fantasy, Young Adult
When Alyx Eris convinced him to become a keeper of the watch, Chase Walker knew he gained the ability to traverse the twelve dimensions.
He knew there were others—the hunters—who would do anything to put an end to the watches’ existence.
He knew his status as a keeper was completely binding until his nineteenth birthday.
Most importantly, he knew he’d be spending the year by Alyx’s side.
What he didn’t know was that in this dimension resides a ruling mage that poses more of a threat than the hunters ever could.
He didn’t know that magic-born hybrid beasts lurk in every corner of the surrounding forests.
And he didn’t know that nothing—and no one—is what it seems in the mystical world of Dimension 8.
The scream ripped through her throat, and she charged the clearing on a battle-cry. Two unfamiliar wolf-creatures sat on their haunches, noses pointed toward the sky, for the moment completely focused on the air directly over them, paying no attention to her, despite being mere meters away. Both animals visibly flinched, shoulders trembling as a high-pitched howl trumpeted from the thing directly over them. Lowering their bodies to the ground, they rolled onto their backs with feet complaisantly in the air in a sudden show of submission. Their small whimpers filled the air, eyes never leaving the creature hovering above, bursts of tremors racking their bodies.
Her eyes tracked theirs, and she tilted her head. Another sound escaped her, this one filled with despair.
The beast had Chase’s limp body in its clutches, and it flew above them gaining altitude with each passing second.
I’m too late!
As this flying monster gained altitude, her horrified eyes widened when Chase awoke and began struggling with his captor. The thing holding him weaved sideways, thrown off-balance by his struggling, before regaining control. Alyx gasped and fell to her knees, her hand fluttering to her cheek, allowing herself only a moment of despair.
“Chase!” She lurched back up, for once unsure what to do. Glancing down at the knife and blade disc she clutched in each hand. Both insignificant pieces of metal, of no help to her now.
The creature began rising into the clouds, size shrinking with each flap of wings, carrying Chase with it.
