The wolf pack hit the streets of London howling. There were five of them, one Alpha leading them. They came through the gate at Golders Green, moving fast, following the scent of the girl. There wasn’t a star in the city sky, which was bright with the reflected glow of streetlights. They ran hard and low, keeping their bodies close to the ground. Their nostrils flared as they sniffed the girl out.
She was close.
But the clock was against them.
The moon was a waning crescent in the bruised purple sky.
They needed to find her, kill her and return before the Moongate slammed shut. The mission was simple.
It was a mistake to believe that the Wolfen could only run with the full moon. That wasn’t true. The Wolfen could shift at will, but it was easier if the moon—any moon—was high in the sky. They had seven in their own sky, meaning where they prowled any night was Wolfen night.
No one was safe.
The gate the wolves had used was in the grounds of the old crematorium, close to the memorials of some of London’s most famous dead. It was like no gate you have ever seen. It was not made of iron or steel or wood. There were no hinges and no latch. It was, in fact, a gate by name alone, and should have been called more truthfully a weakness, because that was exactly what it was, a weakness between the worlds. It was an overlap: a place where the Kingdoms of the Moon and the Sunside brushed up against one another.
It was a rare occurrence, but when the moons aligned that weakness became a gate that could be crossed.
Tonight, for the first time in over one hundred years Wolfen prowled the streets of London.
