Eva, I do have a comment after your reading Beast Warrior. Since the mode of transportation back in the Dark Ages was the horse, and Sigurd was obviously able to ride without problem, I was wondering if the horses could discern whether or not a human was a shape-shifter, if the shifter was in human form. Or could the horse tell if a human was really a bearskin or wolfskin, but didn't feel the human form was a threat? I've just heard of myths where vampires and other supernatural creaters made horses nervous and wondered how it applied to the Wolf Maiden Chronicles mythology.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and doing a giveaway today!

Good question. As a former horse owner I know how spooked horses get even looking at their own shadow. In the first book Werewolf Sanctuary I bring up the idea that the lycans can sooth the horse with their thoughts by thinking "I'm not going to eat you." The horses are also 'bomb proofed' to live with the lycans. This is the case in Beast Warrior. I suppose my lycans are 'horse whisperers'

In my current work in progress when the horse first notices my lycan he spooks until the calming thoughts sooth his wired brain.I also have a Siamese cat who in his wrath challenges the man who happens to be a lycan.

Thanks Eva -- I like the idea that the lycan's heightened connection with animals allows him/her to soothe their minds. Can't wait for the Siamese challenge!

The siamese cat will be in the current book I'm now writing so it may be a wee bit.

I think animals can read and sense things to a much greater extent than us humans. I have working on communicating with animals because i think this is a skill we still have but have long ignored.
