Wingless and Damned by Dawn White

 Wingless and Damned by Dawn White

This is a surreal story with many characters and a deep plot. The first part prologue is set in Eleusis West Attica Greece 1700 BC, opens with the mythological being Aison flying in to rescue his beloved Kora, but it too late. In his fury of her demise he put a curse on the offenders. In his deep anguish he creates evil creatures to stalk and killer all the tribes’ people from generations to generations at a certain time every two centuries.

In the author's words'

"Forces unseen begin to pull him skyward as he glares at the witnesses to the carnage of his once most beloved. Zeus warned me of falling in love with a mortal!  When he gets his wits to him he sets out on his journey to make as many monstrosities he can possibly make. All noble traits and empathy he once possessed for the mortals are continuously consumed by the hatred.  Becoming a monster of immense proportions only to turn his hatred into a sire of five other originals to own the deepest darkest corners of this hell we call earth."

Then the tale continues to a later in time, 1810 Adirondacks Whiteface mountain range Upstate New York.
Opening with the In the Neuri tribe, the medicine woman is ill and they relied on a substitute healer Ciarra, a powerful witch. She decides it is time for her tribe to defend themselves against the cursed fang monsters that come in the night and bloody attacked and executed the innocent. She listens to the spiritual whispers to her and they tell her the ritual to chant to transform the brave warriors into supernatural creatures, cursed all future generations to transform into werewolves at the age of 26 years, to live as immortal creatures of the night to defend their tribe against the evil that comes to destroy, the cursed five originals, of the storgi, the formidable enemies of the Neuri tribe. 

Ciarra the witch and the Alpha wolf Aison the were feeling remorse and wanted to break the transformation but she could not as a powerful witch, for the spiritual voices do not tell her how to change the human men back. She is taken hostage by the supernatural Aison who tries to change the course of destiny and tells her she has to twist the curse and put a loophole in it.  This has to be done to stop the never ending war of evil upon the earth. Before she was almost eaten alive, she chants that the only way this spell can be broken is if a mated pair come together and crossover at the same time. This will make them part werewolf and part strigoi which is the only way they can successfully kill the original five strigoi to break the curse.  

She is rescued by Aison and they continue to figure how break the curse,  but the curse carries into the future until the two lovers meet and bond as mates. And they come together into a bonding union and transform into the destined mated pair through a sensual lustful  transformation, the fae and the werewolf,  Lea and Alexander are the appointed saviours to stop the fateful curse.

This reader added this paragraph in to explain Ciarra's role as a powerful witch,

In the author's words:

"My name is Ciarra and as medicine woman for the Neuri tribe, I work with my tribal ancestors or spirit guides and nature to keep the balance and peace within our tribe. So far my job hasn’t been easy."
"Twelve of the strongest men in the tribe have volunteered to be ones be spelled as werewolves. I begin twisting what used to be thought of as a curse into a simple transformation spell. When I am done, no one will recognize them. However, to be honest, I have no idea how to change them back. I watch nervously as the beautiful, naked men of the Neuri tribe stand shoulder to shoulder as they begin to painfully transform into what seems to be mindless beasts."

"As the Neuri men writhe in pain and agony, my spirit guides start chanting in an unknown language, calming the men. My expressive arm movements while talking to the men seem to draw them in closer to hear me. I give the men instructions to hunt the strigoi down."

then this paragraph of the two meeting, the first couple, Aison and Ciarra and how she has to break the curse:  earlier in the tale.

"He sits down across the table from me and looks me in the eyes with his horrific red glare. Seemingly casual and polite, he says, “You are here to finish what you started. You started a war that eventually will consume strigoi and man beast alike, and no one will be safe. You think you were helping your people but it has been prophesized that this will not end well—millions will die.”

The brief tale continues with suspense as the witch is almost consumed by the evil strigoi, Aison comes to her rescue but he needs to turn her to mend from the feast of the monsters on her broken body. He is concern about the other hostage, who he locked away in safety from the hungry predators. She is pregnant with the last female, and he realizes the only path was to protect the tribe last baby born under the curse, and has her escape with the two faes who were released by him, as hostages of the strigoi, and they escape into a safe realm.

Where she is raised by her aunts, the fae decides it is time to travel to the earthly realm to visit other relatives.  She is at the age of 25, no longer is the defenseless baby girl, developed into a young beautiful woman and she is the catalyst to transform the curse. To have the loophole work she has to bond with a werewolf to become part of each other and they become formidable foes against the evil creatures, the five originals strigoi of the earth and below. All five who were created by their master Aison to exact revenge for his lost love, Kora. They are to be hunted them down and he wanted to execute them in same bloody fashion, as they did to the folks of the tribe. The story is a series and will continue as the two mated couple will continue on the journey to exact their revenge and justice and executed all the strigoi. 

The background of the plot is to have the loophole work they understand they need to have a future couple  come together in a sensual union, to bond as one to attain supernatural powers and as they opened the flood gates of time and destiny. The prediction comes true as Lea and Alexander meet in the future. As they related and they increased their lust for each other and through their beautiful and sensual love bonding, they exchanged their DNA when united, the fae was changed in a predator monster with many new powers and secrets. They become united in their mission, each bringing their own intelligence, and supernatural abilities to become powerful avengers. 

The couple, Lea and Alexander became a team and start to hunt the foes. The poor fae, Lea has much to accept in her transformation. Such as and likes and dislikes some of her new traits. She is not alone for she has her soul-mate and he very protective of her, charming and a sweet lover. Yet he is keeping secrets from her.

The author has added in more twists and made the plot more suspenseful as other events torn at this reader’s heart as lives were lost and hearts are broken.  This and more sacrifices are to occur for the good to triumph over evil.

There are sexy charming woo lala, scenes in the story. Like the heart scene between the mythological being/werewolf and the powerful witch earlier in the beginning of the story, I added this to display this author's style of writing and her technique to attract the reader.

“In order to keep you safe after the ceremony, you will need to be mine.”

“The moment the last word left his mouth, I felt a sharp then amazingly pleasurable pressure on my neck. I do not even have an inclination to pull away! My body melts into Aison as his lips and tongue take what he needs. I feel my inner fire igniting, imagining what his lips and tongue would feel like and taste like on other more sensitive areas. Just as my mind is wandering to these delicious things, he stops and looks at me.”

“You need to drink a small amount of my blood in order to finish this. “You must twist the curse again and make it irreversible All born of your tribe from this  day forward will be cursed as a werewolf at the age of 26 and be doomed to roam the Earth  finding no peace or rest until the end of the strigoi.”

“The only way this spell can be broken is if a mated pair come together and crossover at the same time. This will make them part werewolf and part strigoi which is the only way they can successfully kill the original strigoi to break the curse.”

 Lea and Alexander are even able to communicate telepathically, and there are tender moments, laughable moments and serious moments as they speak to each other in the midst of their lives, love making and preparing for the final battle against the strigoi, by psychic communication.

The conclusion at the end of this short novella of another threat looming on the horizon has compelled this reader to want to keep an eye open for this author's future publications which will be is to be publish as a series. This was a short story, a teaser, but it whetted my appetite to see what will happen with the powerful werewolves and the strigoi as they fight to the death. The battle of love to triumph over hate was definitely the theme to this entertaining story fill with action and heart thumping action.
