Kiera the Chosen: Virgin Witch. Daydreamer. Unknowingly Destined for Death.
Nine winters ago, a fierce winter storm weakened the walls of Sector two, allowing demon-like creatures called ravagers to re-enter the city. Unimaginable death and devastation followed. Regent Minassus, the sector's leader and most powerful witch at the time, took the only measure he believed would save the citizens. He built a new army. Casting a spell so strong it almost killed him, he transformed all adults males with the 236-k gene into polar bear shifters. In their animal forms, they were the only creatures able to beat back the unwelcome invaders and protect the Sector.
Every year before the first winter storm, the Regent selected one virgin witch, called the Chosen, to perform the transformation spell.
To Kiera the Chosen, it was an honor to serve.
Until she met Xander Oslo, the one person willing to do anything to stop the Regent from turning another shifter. With one statement, he showed her that she had been deceived for nine years. Performing the spell nine days from now would come at an unexpected cost.
