Finding Extraordinary Magic in Everyday Love
On the Blog
“What would you say, little mouse, if I told you that nightmares are real? That all of the stories you’ve heard of things that go bump in the night are true? All things that howl, prowl, bite, and kill—from vampires to werewolves, from wendigos to witches, monsters to demons. Would you believe me? Would you take care?
“Your face tells me that you don’t, and you wouldn’t. That is why the Midnight Sentinel exists. Though religion is such an archaic notion conceived of by primitive humans…things like Heaven and Hell, God and the Devil… but I can assure you, dear boy, that there is a Hell—and we are living in it.”
~ Sebastian Locke
Stray is the first volume in the Sentinel series, a dystopian urban fantasy paranormal gay romance. I am offering this series as a Patreon exclusive, along with illustrations and commissions by artist Somber Illusory Soda. *THIS IS UNEDITED CONTENT*** So you can consider yourselves beta readers. Please feel free to comment on any typos or continuity issues you find in this unedited manuscript. You’ll be getting to read the story months, perhaps over a year, before it goes to publication–and in fact, your comments will help me decide how and IF I should publish it–and subscribers will also get exclusive Patreon-only illustrations.
I hope you’ll join me on this adventure!
Here is the blurb for STRAY:
All of the mythical creatures that howl, prowl, bite, and kill—from vampires to werewolves, from wendigos to witches, monsters to demons—are real. The Midnight Sentinel exists to protect the delicate human race from the monsters that wish them harm.
Sebastian Locke never asked to be a Prince among the Feliscindae, a race of feline shifters. He never asked to be the champion of an entire species. He never asked for responsibility.
Noah Cowan never asked to be abandoned by his parents. He never asked to be homeless. He never asked to fall into a reality where up was down, north was south, and nightmares were real.
Two men living in a dystopian world, post-apocalyptic several times over, in which all of things that go bump in the night truly exist, are drawn together by an intricate spiderweb of fate, duty, blood, and love.
There’s something about Noah. Sebastian is drawn to him like a moth to a flame, but so are many others—those much more dangerous than he. In order to keep Noah safe, Sebastian must trust him with his most guarded secret: the truth of the supernatural.
