Good morning! I hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend!
I just wanted to pop in for a minute and share about the next Legacy release! I’m finally getting to a fun part in the series where alliances and lineages are explained. For those who have read The Loup-Garou Series and know about Katey’s heritage, this is gonna be a real treat for you. Releasing on the 20th, you’ll get to read about how Adam came into his werewolf genes and how his father, Geoffrey, helps him cope with his new condition.
It took quite a bit of research since Adam grew up in a Navajo tribe and I swear, I could probably carry on a conversation in the language now. According to my mom’s side of the family, my grandfather’s grandmother was full-blooded Cherokee. Whether that’s true or not, I became fascinated with Native American culture. Their connection with nature is inspiring and influenced a lot of how I portray the relationship between my loups-garous and their inner wolf spirits. I learned so much about the Navajo culture, their way of life, and the tragic history they share with other tribes that were persecuted and abused by European and American settlers.
This was a hard one to write, not just because of the research, but because of the feels that go along with it. You’re gonna love it!
Navajo Territory – 1734
Adam, the mixed child of a Navajo woman and European trader, makes the unsettling discovery that he is not any normal man. When Geoffrey Swenson shows back up to the village, prompted to visit his son for the first time since boyhood, it’s for a more disquieting reason. Adam is coming into his true identity as a werewolf and must leave behind his old ways of life, his traditions, and everything he’s known, to train with his estranged father. But with a new sickness sweeping through the tribes, leaving may prove harder than they ever imagined.
A mistake made in his early years has formed a rift between father and son, but now Geoffrey is Adam’s only hope for mastering his new werewolf abilities. After being abandoned by his own father before his first shift, Geoffrey knows how difficult it is to cope with these changes. But he begins to realize that maybe Adam is the one who can teach him a thing or two about what it means to be a werewolf.
