The Jagara Leader once formed an accord with the Naymati King. The two species peacefully coexisted for many years, but the balance of the jungle shifted the day the leader’s daughter entered her Awakening.
This coming-of-age transition is an exciting time for a Jagara female. It is a time when her jaguar nature emerges, and her mate dreams come. But when Adara’s mate arrives, tragedy and betrayal quickly befall them.
Will the Jagara and Naymati be able to preserve the peace their people have fought so hard to maintain? Or will life in the jungle be changed forever?
NOTE: The Betrayal was previously published in 2013 as a short story, but has been completely rewritten and repackaged.
