In case you didn’t know, this week on the Four Foxes, One Hound blog, we’re hosting a giveaway. We have goodies galore to give away and I hope you’re taking advantage of your chances to win!
I’d like to talk about the creatures of the Veil. For those of you who haven’t read the books in my series, the Veil is the secret paranormal community that exists parallel to the human world. It’s filled with creatures of myth and legend and my own imagination.
Elementals (earth, water, air, fire) are the personification of the elements.
Dryads are female tree huggers of the Veil.
Sirens/Crooners have musical voices that can seduce (crooners are m ale).
Succubi/Incubi are gorgeous women/men who feed off of arousal of the opposite sex.
Minotaurs are shifters who can change from man, to bull, to a man/bull combination
Amazons are a warrior race of humanoid women
Angels/Demons not in the theological sense
Fairies from many different realms with different powers
Vampires feed off of the chemicals in blood, not the actual blood
Wereanimals nearly every predatory animal in existence is represented
Nymphs are closely linked to Elementals and can only have one lover. Ever.
Warmages/witches are magical humans who can conjure and anything else to do with magic.
Dwarves aren’t short and bearded. They’re great builders and miners though.
Satyrs are the frat boys of the Veil. They’re all about partying and hooking up with women.
Elves are just as mystical as they appear in Hollywood, but not nearly as stuck up.
I’m sure I’m missing a few, but those are the only ones I can call to mind at the moment.
Four books into this series, I’ve had to change my mind about what I’d want to be if I lived in the Veil. At first, I wanted to be a weretiger. Cause that’s just awesome. Really. I’ve always wanted to be a cat…you know, sleeping for twenty hours, being innately graceful, and having fur. How cool is that? But as I wrote this series, my mind started to change.
Now, I’m thinking I’d much rather be an Amazon. Sure, they’re war-like, they tend to work out more than anyone should, but they have to be the coolest race I’ve come across in my series. They’re tough women, warriors to the core, but they’re a close-knit family who always has each others’ backs. Who could ask for more?
