I’ve always been intrigued by wolves. There’s just something about them — so regal and yet mysterious. T.F. Walsh knows all about the magic of the wolf pack. She’s here today to share her take on wolf dynamics.
Take it away, T.F.!
It’s All About Size
That’s right. The bigger the wolf pack, the less likely anyone will attack them and the more territory they own.
Plus, wolves are notorious for their hierarchy; the alpha on top, then the beta, the subordinates, and even the omega. But in Cloaked in Blood, the wulfkin structure is layered a bit differently, leading to lots of betrayal and power-hungry alphas. Who doesn’t love drama!!
I stepped between the prisoners and the supposedly greatest leader of Europe. The solid wulfkin sat stiff in his ruling chair, silver strands above his temples giving the impression he had horns. Wouldn’t be far from the truth.
“Is this how you welcome your son back home, with chains and gags? What message are you sending to your packs?”
Father shifted in his seat, tightness capturing his thin lips. “If anyone crosses me— even my own blood—they’ll pay.” CLOAKED IN BLOOD
Now when it comes to specifics in Cloaked in Blood, here is everyone’s role:
Moonwulf – Wolf shifters who will transform from human to wolf form only during the full moon
Wulfkin – Moonwulves who have gone through the Lunar Eutine rite of passage and are now able to change at will into their wolf form
Dracwulf – Unstoppable berserker-like creature that is half wolf, half wulfkin and will kill anything in its path
Lunar Eutine – A rite of passage for a moonwulf to permanently transform into a wulfkin. It takes place beneath a blood moon. Eutine means true of heart and draws on a moonwulf’s connection to his or her inner wolf. When the moon is completely shrouded in black, a new wulfkin will be delivered.
Alpha – The leader of a pack of wulfkin/moonwulves who rules only over his or her claimed territory
Varlac – A reigning wulfkin clan who rule and set laws for all alphas living under their territory jurisdiction (e.g. Europe, Africa, etc.)
Varlac Emperor Alpha – Varlac leader who rules over every alpha and pack in Europe
Cloaked in Blood
The daughter of a sultan alpha, Selena Kurt agrees to an arranged wulfkin mating to protect her sister from a dangerous alpha from the enemy clan. To her surprise, her match is Marcin Ulf, the next in line for the Hungarian throne . . . and the wulfkin who broke her heart years ago.
Marcin is just as shocked to learn he’ll be matched to the enemy’s daughter and the woman he’s never forgotten. Before they can be paired, however, they’re drawn into a tournament where Marcin will compete to free his estranged imprisoned brother, while Selena battles for the life of another wulfkin alpha. Both intend to seize this chance to save those they’re fighting for – even if it means facing off with one another just as their romance rekindles.
Will tribe loyalty triumph, or will they realize they’re better off as a team before it’s too late?
