"Mating of the Beasts" was the second series A. M. Reed created. It is slightly more mature than her previous series, "Mating of the Beasts" but still safe for most ages.
There is one short story in this series which can be read before or after reading either of the two main books. It is closely related, but you neither have to read it to understand the events in the other books, nor read the other books to understand the events in it.

bloodthirsty werewolf…? Or something more…?
This is part of the

read the other books to understand the going ons.
This novelette is about 11,000 words.
