Today, I am excited to share with you the beautiful cover reveal of bestselling author, Dawn White. 

Anastasia’s entire family had been killed by something quite unnatural. She has her own obstacles to face.  Let’s follow the journey to see what happens with Anastasia and The Dregg Chronicles. 

Dawn White

Dawn White resides in West Virginia with her husband and three daughters. She has always been an avid reader and seems to live a busy life as a wife and mother. In between home schooling her children and taking care of the house she finds a few minutes at a time to write her novella series Wingless and Damned, and Wingless and Forsaken. Wingless and Cursed  is the YA version of Wingless and Damned and is published under D.M. White. Dawn is also the co-owner and operator of Nevermore PR and Nevermore Press.


Gisselle is frightened, unable to think straight she does the one thing we'd all do in the horrific situation she is in: she hides. But as she hides, she witnesses the cruel and savage murder of her sister Kara. A feral beast is on the loose within the once protective home she shared with her father, the Mayor of Savannah, her mother and her two sisters, Kara and Trinity. 

Faced with a life or death situation she makes a run for it, but soon comes face to face with someone she once knew and loved; Trinity. But Trinity is no longer herself, she has been taken over by a disease which has left her hungry and in need of food -human flesh.

Throwing herself across the banister of the staircase, Gisselle is almost free of Trinty's aim, but only to fall victim to a bite that will change the course of her future life. 

Falling hard against her bolted front door, she scrambles at the locks and quickly makes haste, leaving her mother behind to be mauled by a starving Trinity.

Running and in pain, the next few sequences sees her on a bus, fighting unconsciousness and falling to the ground, only to be lifted into the arms of Marshall, an undesirable soul, who Gisselle is quick to judge as "a wife beater". But we soon learn Marshall isn't so bad and take Gisselle to the safety of a community of people who are wary of the beasts lurking in the outside world.

Gisselle knows something is wrong, she's young, naive and at times a little to flighty with her language, but given the situation I think we would all howl a few curses.

The story ends on a cliffhanger, with Gisselle being offered a human; a child molester to feast on, but the ultimate decision is up to her.

This story has so much promise, and whilst I enjoyed the fast paced, frantic tale woven, I feel there could have been just a little more time taken when Gisselle closed the door on her mother. I think it would have allowed us as readers  to get inside her head, and see the emotions running through her mind, not only the obvious adrenaline.

Dawn has done a good job on not giving too much away, but I was just a little confused as to where Gisselle was taken to, again, this passage could have done with a little more description.

Overall, I really liked this introduction to a new spin on the zombie genre. I feel there will be plenty of choices ahead for Gisselle to make, and I am curious about the old woman, and why she hold so much power over the rest of the group. She kind of reminds me of an old, frail version of Rick from "The Walking Dead", but this is just my own opinion.

I give the beginning of this short story series:
