WITH A NEW LAND
COMES NEW DANGERS

So, upon moving west to a blossoming town known as Settler's Point, she believes that things will be ordinary -- at least until dead animals start appearing outside her home.

THE BEAST OF
Book 1 in the Of Dust and Blood duology
It is the year 1845, and under the hot Texas sun, my family is heading west to our new home in a blossoming town known as Settler’s Point. Here, my father says, we will build our lives anew, and hope to leave the last few tragic years behind.
Not long after our arrival, it becomes apparent that something is wrong. The town drunk claims to have seen a wolf “larger than ever,” and animals are appearing slaughtered outside our homes. It’ll take only one rainy night, and a chance sighing, for me to believe that a supernatural beast stalks the lands beyond Settler’s Point.
It is only when tragedy strikes a second time, and claims one of our own, that we realize that something needs to be done. But with the townspeople scared, and my father away on military business, it will be up to me, and my friends, to make things right. It will be up to us to kill the beast of Settler’s Point.

The ramifications of my sickness are monstrous. Should I lose control, I will destroy everything around me. Even the person I love.
In a world as cruel as this one, I must fight to protect those I love. Even if it means sacrificing everything in the process.
