Heirs of Shakazhan is book six in the Lone Wolf Series. Sorry, it’s not out yet, but I’m working on it! Wil and Matilda have just had a spooky late night visitor, an apparition which, they reckon, is a telepathic projection. It attacks Mariah, their daughter, first and goes after her nanny. Wil tries to fight it but can’t, but with Matilda, it’s another story. She fights the entity—and wins. It leaves her shaken.
“He was incredibly powerful, wasn’t he?” his question hung between them unanswered for several minutes.
Matilda didn’t seem to be listening, but suddenly she shook herself and looked in his eyes.
“Powerful? Yes. He is quite adept at projecting himself over great distance. I’m still not sure how he does it or how far away he is….”
“Do you know who he is?”
She looked surprised, her eyes going wide. A slow smile crept across her features as she gazed at him.
“What?” He looked around nervously. This was the precise feeling he got when confronted with a lynch mob.
“You mean you don’t?”
Wil shrugged. Matilda chuckled, shaking her head in wonder. She looked self-satisfied and very cheeky, Wil thought.
“Well? Are you going to share?”
“I’m savoring this moment. It’s not often I know something you don’t.”
“Matilda….” His tone was ominous, his manner intimidating.
