Snowflake: A Werepet Short Story

Like most eight-year-olds, Haldon’s entire world is video games, playing with friends, and sloshing through the monotony of school.

That is until he meets the Martin’s newest pet, a legendary albino werepet named Snowflake. The two become fast friends. But Mr. Martin isn’t as kind as he pretends to be. And with owning werepets becoming illegal, Haldon finds himself in a race to save his friend.

From the world of Werepets Unleashed comes the first new werepet story from the mind of Douglas R. Brown in ten years. Get a taste of Brown’s world before the eagerly anticipated, October 2023 release of Untamed, the explosive sequel to Tamed.
