This is story that will amaze any fantasy reader. Astrell is being hunted down by hordes of demons. The want the baby she has vowed to protect. Having been considered a rogue, she had lost a vast majority of her abilities. Her plight brought tears to my eyes. There is another story stemming from 100 years in the past. Simon Blackwoode is running away from home. His sister Elizabeth attempts to follow him. Simon tries to warn her but she wasn't fast enough to escape the werewolf that used to be her brother. Elizabeth and her horse were discovered outside the entry gate of her home, both shredded to pieces. Simon flees the country as far as he could go, knowing the monster within him had killed a beloved family member. In Germany, a Krampus has been abducting children. Loch, a Leprechaun, and Malpadia, an Amazon, are fighting the anti-klaus. Despite their best efforts, the creature managed to get the upper hand of the fight. Just as he was attempting to advance, something hits him hard enough to send him flying. Simon pauses in human form to show his intentions were good, then shifts into werewolf form and kills the krampus. From that day, an alliance is forged to protect the world from the monsters that lurked in disguise.
