Excerpt

"There's been a development in the city," the messenger spoke, looking at Alfred and Arthur with almost panicked eyes. "They found a half-dead shifter, beat up and bloody and we think it may be someone you know."

"What did he look like?" Alfred asked, keeping a hand on Arthur's arm to keep him calm.

"Slightly tanned skin, tall, lanky, a cheetah we thing, wearing a white mask." For a moment, they were all silent, before Arthur spoke;

"That's my son, it's Sadiq!"

Prologue

The Brother Returns

It's been a long time.

The red-head stood at the entrance of the city, arms crossed, looking at the entrance building.

A very long time indeed.

He ruffled his hair, pricked his ears, and straightened his coat.

Now I'm going to see you again.

Holding his arms behind his head, Seumas turned, going in the opposite direction. He was almost ready to make his debut.

Whether you like it or not.
