As Potter leaves Kiera and his friends to go in search of Luke, he makes a lonely journey across the snow-capped mountains of Cumbria. Haunted by the death of Murphy, the capture of Luke and the love that he feels for Kiera, Potter reflects on his past life and the disturbing events that took place at the Wolf House.


He remembers his first encounter with the werewolves, how he had to save Murphy and Luke, and capture the serial killer who was murdering the children from the town of Little Hope.


“Wolf House” (Potter’s Story) is a novella length tale set between ‘Vampire Breed’ (Book Four) and ‘Vampire Hollows’ (Book Five) in the Kiera Hudson series.


Authors Note: Of all my characters, Kiera and Potter have been the most talked about. From the many emails that I receive – most want to know more about them.


The first four books in the Kiera Hudson Series are all from Kiera’s point of view and I think we know her well enough by now. But what about Potter? So for all the Potter fans that want to know more about him, here is his story.


“Wolf House” (Potter’s Story) A 30,000 word novella set between books four & five of the Kiera Hudson Series.


‘Vampire Hollows’ Book Five in the Kiera Hudson Series available January 2012.



BOOK REVIEW:



How clever has Tim written this novella? Tim, you are so good at your twists and things you weave into your story for the reader to discover the reason/answer to further down the track.


Apart from the fact that Mr Smart Mouth, Sean Potter himself stars in his own novella....yay!!! and we learn more about what makes Potter tick, Tim has put in some wonderful twists. When you think you know which way the story is heading...curve ball....


Personally, I love that Tim took the time to give us Potter’s story. I had been hoping we would get a Potter POV, just to get in his mind and see what has made him that cranky pants, smart mouthed, witty, hesitant, brave guy that I knew I would love after reading Vampire Shift. There is something wonderful about a male lead character that is flawed and not your typical male lead that can get under the skin of the reader and you just love him for all his flaws.


Potter doesn’t disappoint with his smart mouth in this novella. Ha!! the dialogue...and the...........


I realised how much I missed pipe smoking Murphy. It was good to pretend he was back amongst the living, even if it was back story woven through the novella.


You are going to be in for a treat with this Novella. It may not be a regular book size, but what Tim packs into these pages * raises eyebrows* ......you will be very surprised with what you discover...I know I was....several times over.


I’ll say it again, this is a very clever Novella, it made me love Potter even more. There are many layers to this boy and so much intelligence. I really am going to miss this series when all said and done. I am rather addicted!



FAVE QUOTES:


“.....I’d known guys who had spent a fortune on wining and dining and still never scored a home run!......”



“Look where you’re going next time, Mr F%$#@ Magoo!”



......”You do know what D.S. stands for, don’t you?”

“Dog shit?” I smiled back at him.



“You must be smacked up to your tits on drugs if you think I’m going to help you,” I barked. “I’d rather stick pins in my eyes.”



“Ready?” he asked.

“For what?” I shot back.

“I dunno. I’m just asking – are you ready?”

I glanced sideways at Madison and she shot me a quick look.

“Oh for crying out loud,” I groaned. “We’re not a bunch of five-year olds!”



I could pull some more quotes, but then that would be almost every time Potter opens his mouth...ha!
