The Night Mischief Became a Real Cat

Short Story by Annie Reed

$1.99 available in bundle


Mischief never expected to encounter a shadow creature.

Especially not on the night her wings fell off and she became a real cat.

She just wants to find a home where she belongs. Instead, Mischief runs into the biggest shadow creature she’s ever seen. A creature that can transform itself under the light of the full moon into something solid and dangerous and hungry.

Mischief comes from a long line of feline fey. Proud hunters who protect the world from shadow creatures who stalk the unwary. But Mischief’s no longer fey—she’s just a cat.

One very determined cat.
