Excerpt from the Prologue of Tethered by Lia Angelini

“She slowed, shivering and came to a stop. She needed to get her bearings and make sure that she was still on the trail. She turned to face the direction that she had come from but couldn’t really see anything without the moon for light and she cursed herself for not bringing a flashlight. There was no noise behind her, no footsteps or sounds of sticks breaking, nothing to say she was being hunted, but she turned and ran anyway.”
