    This is my take of a Romanian myth/superstition. It was so fun to write and add my own twist, but I've only had a couple friends and family read it. I am looking for any and all feedback! What works, what doesn't, what could be done better, punctuation/grammar/spelling errors that I'm sure I've missed while editing. I am hoping to publish this so I appreciate ALL feedback! I tend to classify this as supernatural/paranormal thriller.

    When demons return to the Seven Kingdoms Spira--a ruthless killer and forgotten queen--must put her hatred for humans behind her and fight the will of Death to saver her friends and home, even if it means killing the love of her life.

    (Mild Violence Warning) Viggo, a Tekula focused on staying with the traditions of their current leader, Jorah. The Tekula were a group of hunters who were given the gift to turn into a small Kula, a giant wolf-like creature from the East, by Adeni, the god of the hunt. Owaine, a younger Tekula on his way to becoming the next leader, begins asking Viggo to help him stop the Tekula from killing everything they see once he is in charge. He wants them to go back to how it was before Adeni’s gift was corrupted. As the story goes, Viggo must battle against his years of loyalty to his pack and leader, and challenge the notions he’s been taught since he was a child.

    This story continues and finishes in a separate piece. I'm open to pretty much any critiques you have. I'm also open to any suggestions on the description.
