Centuries ago, Allendra and Zaan, wielding the Source together, created supernatural beings they hoped would bring peace and harmony to the world. Instead, strife, feuds, and wars took their toll.
After lifetimes of watching her creations perpetuate misery and destruction, Allendra has had enough. She has been harnessing the power of the upcoming Blood Moon, and plans to strip every one of these beings of their supernatural powers.
Zaan, long estranged from her, returns to ask her to reconsider, but the Challenge she issues might be more than he bargained for…
This short story is the introduction to the Fated & Forbidden series, a world that gathers stand-alone paranormal stories from 11 authors. It can be downloaded for free. The characters Allendra and Zaan get their own story in the conclusion, Blood Moon.
When Zaan sensed power gathering across the world, he followed his instincts all the way back to Allendra. He already knew what she was planning to do just as he knew he would not be welcome after centuries of estrangement. He soon finds out he’s right on both counts.
After he pleads with her to change her mind, Allendra challenges the breeds they created together. They will have to choose love over everything else before the Blood Moon, or risk losing their powers. Zaan realizes he, too, has a role to play here… but is it a role Allendra chose for him, or did he get caught in the challenge by accident?
Either way, trying to find a way back into her heart will not be an easy task when Allendra seems intent on living in the past…
