Release day: Shifter Bound

20 April 2018

Today is the official release of Shifter Bound by Leisl Leighton (Pack Bound Series #3) (ebook, Escape Publishing). Here’s the blurb:

A spy, a lone wolf, a desperate choice…

Five hundred years ago, facing extinction, a group of powerful witches united to create a pact with the Were to save witch-kind. The pact expelled an ancient evil, known only as The Darkness, that was blocking the Were from their wolves. With the Darkness destroyed, the Packs and their Covens grew strong as they thrived beside each other in their brand new world.

But The Darkness was not destroyed.

Shifter-Witch, Eloise O’Brien, has betrayed her Coven and almost killed her brother to save the Were Pack she’d infiltrated as a spy. Now living with the Were she once feared and hated, she learns the truth of who she really is – the prophesied Nexus. A witch of unspeakable power, she must make a choice between the light and the dark, between Iain McShane, the Lone Wolf she is coming to love, and her once beloved brother and Coven who are now working for The Darkness.

Leisl dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:

This book was a surprise in the series, because when I sat down to write about the McVale Pack and the witch coven they were bound to, I had in mind to only write three books. But it became clear during the writing of Moon Bound, the second book in the series, that the shifter I introduced in that book, Eloise O’Brien, had her own story that must be told, and that it was tied in with the mysterious Lone Wolf of the pack, Iain McShane. Discovering their story and where it sat in the series was a thrilling ride for me, every new twist and turn challenging me to push the story further, to delve more into the history of the world I was creating and do further research into the world of ancient pagan religions, including Wicca. I have set each of my stories around a powerful cycle of the moon, namely Samhain (Halloween), Yule (Christmas), Ostara (Easter), through Beltane (May Day) and onto Samhain again. It was fascinating to find out the reasons for so many of the traditions we hold dear today and include some of the mythology and power of those traditions in my books. For Iain and Eloise, their Easter-set story highlights the struggle to move on from the past and embrace the re-birth that is so significant to the season. I hope everyone will be able to settle down with their after-Easter chocolates (eggs if you still have some—mine are all eaten!) and a warm cup of your favourite beverage, and as the nights cool down into the oncoming winter, lose themselves in Eloise and Iain’s story and the passion that helps them to navigate a world still ruled by ancient magic, myths and legends.

You can find out more about this book at Leisl’s website or buy it from Amazon.
