Aconitum is the name of my first available fantasy novel. It was serialised on JukePop from August 2014 to June 2015 and is now complete. The novel is 100% free to read here.
As if being a certified werewolf hunter isn’t enough of a moral morass already, Hector Rothenberg hears rumours of a wolf who can change its shape at will, and he realises that he must investigate the truth.
But he needs to hurry up - especially if routine missions keep going almost fatally wrong.
Aconitum is the story of one man’s physical and mental journey. It is also the tale of a society which knows that werewolves are a real threat, of a doctor with a dark secret, a skilled lady in a lucrative business, a rich aunt, a grumpy, old mentor, a cheeky Frenchman, a village idiot, tragic death, romance gone wrong, and a young man who really wanted nothing to do with any of that.
A literary supernatural tale of werewolves, the ones who hunt them, and the people who are caught in the crossfire.
Is that biting off more than a werewolf can chew? Well, come and see for yourself.
