Andromeda’s Fall

by Abigail Owen 

Designed by: Regina Wamba, Mae I Design

Publication Date: February 25, 2014

Series: Shadowcat Nation, Book One

Genre: Adult Paranormal Romance (18+)

Andie Reynolds is being hunted. After witnessing her mother’s violent death at the hands of a pack of wolf shifters, Andie has devoted her life to protecting her community of cougar shifters from a similar fate. But now, a greater threat lies within her own dare, and she must run. If she stays, Kyle Carstairs will try to force their Mating, seeking the added power their union would provide.

Andie would rather chew off her own foot than end up with Kyle. Though, knowing him, she won’t live long either way. Andie’s only hope of survival is to Mate the Alpha of the Keller Dare with which she is seeking asylum. But before she can get to him, Andie must first go through A.J., one of the Alpha’s Protectors. The incredibly frustrating shifter insists on challenging her story, her skills, her trust… and her heart.

Andie is running out of options and out of time. But risking the life of someone she loves – just to save herself – goes against every instinct she has.

EXCERPT

Andie crouched low, obscured from view in the underbrush, and watched the compound with a quiet patience born of experience. If her calculations were correct, the next patrol of guards would pass by within the minute. Her posture and expression didn’t shift an inch when, moments later, she was proven correct. As soon as the patrol passed out of sight, Andie moved, swift and silent as a shadow. She sprinted across the well-cut lawn, ignoring the pain radiating throughout her body, and was up and over the wall, using her momentum and the corners formed by a turn in the wall surrounding the installation. She dropped to the ground on the other side with a barely audible thud.

Andie found herself on the back side of a well-manicured garden. She stayed completely still, crouched low to the ground once more, and took her time observing her location. Ahead, about the length of a football field, she could see light from the main building in the complex. The glow spilled from a pair of glass doors and across the trees and plants, creating patches of dark and light.

A plan in mind, Andie moved again, using the pools of darkness and groupings of plants for cover. She didn’t go for the doors. They were too obvious and were likely wired for the alarm system and required some kind of code to get in and out. But on the second floor, one of the windows was wide open, allowing the cool nighttime breeze in. With agile grace, Andie swung herself up into the branches of a large tree. She took care to only use her right arm, which slowed her down a bit. As quickly as she could without rustling the leaves, she made her way up to the branch closest to that open window. And she stopped again. And observed.

Andie didn’t move for close to thirty minutes as she watched. And then, without any warning, she leapt, putting all the power of her feline form into the action. She didn’t shift exactly – she was trying to avoid that right now since it would be seen as a direct threat – but she used the might of the beast inside her to clear the distance to the window. She sailed through the opening and immediately tucked and rolled as she hit the ground. She found her feet and returned to her crouch.

Using her cat’s hearing, she waited. Someone might have heard the sound of her landing. Her injured left arm was messing with her usual finesse. At the same time as she listened, she also turned in a slow circle, checking that room she was in was empty. Many minutes later, satisfied that she was alone and that no one was coming for her… yet… Andie moved to the door of the room she currently occupied. Cracking it open a hair, she looked down the hallway.

She tensed to open the door all the way and then froze in place when a deep, male voice sounded from directly behind her, “Stop where you are.”

Dammit, Andie thought. How the hell did he find me?

    I love the way the cat appears in her shoulder – a stunning and effective design. How many books are in the series? It sounds like something I’d read.

  3. Shaleen says:

    Thats a really good cover. Plus you have a great way of explaining situations. Th delivery is quite compelling!

  4. Nice cover! Not quite my style of book but definitely interesting.

  5. becbier says:

    Sounds like an good read!

  6. Sounds like a good book. I am more of a mystery lover when i have time to read (which isn’t often). Like that you review books, I’ve been thinking about doing it on my blog too.

  7. I like the overall layout of the cover! Love the way the big cat’s head is hidden in the shoulder of the woman, and how both of their eyes are similar.

  8. What a great cover! This isn’t one of the genres I typically read but I love the detail you put into setting the scene in the excerpt you shared. It really makes the reader feel as though they are there.

  9. andrea k says:

    Oh, if I only had time to read!!!!!!!!! I have downloaded a bunch of books onto my Kindle in the hopes of a quiet afternoon and it hasn’t come yet! This book looks great! Thanks for sharing it!

    • usandthree says:

      I totally feel your pain! I have way too many books right now. I try to squeeze in daily reading time. Sometimes, I hide in my bathroom, just to steal a few minutes. That’s probably the saddest thing I ever wrote.

  10. Angie Astry says:

    Wow this sounds awesome!! Love the cover too, would definitely catch my eye in a book store!

  11. Not really a book I would pick up in the bookstore! Fiction, cougars…. no, simply not for me! But I do agree with you never enough time to read all the books I want and bought 🙂

  12. Sounds intriguing, but like some of the other commenters not my style. I do love the cover.

  13. Sasha says:

    Writing was a skill I wish I had. And more time to read….. Who doesn’t wish that? Good luck to the author!

  14. Diana Marie says:

    Sounds very interesting and the cover is beautifully done. This would catch my eyes in the store.

  15. Reading this makes me wish I had more time just to read for fun. I recently managed to find time to read The Book Whisperer, which was written by a teacher who talked about the methods she used to encourage her students to read for fun and become life long readers.

  16. Great cover and juxtaposition of tiger eyes with the heroine’s eyes. Seems like any paranormal romance reader would love this series.

  17. Lisa says:

    Sounds intense! I like the art on the cover. Best of luck to you with it’s success!

  18. ericax235 says:

    Sounds like a good book. I really don’t have time to read anymore, with a job, a blog and a three year old. I wish I could settle down with a good book again!

  19. Jennifer S. says:

    This sounds really interesting, but it’s not a genre I read.

  20. Sounds intriguing, but like some of the other commenters, I’m not a big fiction reader. Thanks for sharing and I hope you enjoyed writing it!

  21. MomMaven says:

    Interesting cover but not my kind of book. I don’t read any fiction that isn’t Christian fiction.

  22. Natasha says:

    Looks interesting. Fascinating premise. And I love the cover art! I hope your friend has much success with this book! I am putting it on my list!

  23. Sheena says:

    I miss reading!! We started a new reading night, which I shared in my blog post http://www.bringinmamahome.com/2014/01/organizing-our-life/ and I have had some opportunity to pick up a book, but I am also using this night to get my blog up an running. I am looking forward to reading more regularly again in a few weeks. I am always looking for great suggestions!

  24. Brittany says:

    Very interesting! Too bad I don’t have any time to read with an infant in the house. I can barely manage to fit in the Bible somedays!

  25. Jessica says:

    My SIL would love it! I don’t have much time to read for fun right now, maybe when the kids get bigger.

  26. Sounds like an awesome book!

  27. Interesting read. You gave an awesome summary of the book. I also love how you have a giveaway as well. Well done :). Thanks for sharing.

  28. I love paranormal reads! Sounds like a fun, quick moving, and interesting book. Best of luck with it from one writer to another 🙂

  29. Natalie says:

    The cover is beautiful! The story sounds like a real grabber! I love the combination of the human characters with animal traits. That is a very interesting perspective.

  30. Meg C says:

    Sounds really interesting! It’s not quite in my usual genre, but it’s a great cover!

  31. ginamangum says:

    I wish I could add to the discussion, but like others, it’s not a book I would read. And also like others, I think the cover is very attractive.

  32. I love book reviews and cover reveals! They are so exciting to get that first glimpse. As an author myself I really enjoy reading about other’s work and seeing what their cover designer has done. Thanks for sharing! ~ Bobbi

  33. I’m intrigued. Would love to read more.

  34. Stacie says:

    Sorry, but it’s not my type of book. I’m more into inspirational and self help and less into fiction.

  35. That is a gorgeous cover! I have never read anything in this genre, but it sounds interesting.
