*This short story contains explicit sex. It is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

Anna Davis has accepted that her four-year battle with cancer is finally over. With only weeks to live, she makes peace with her life and makes arrangements for her death.

Twenty years ago, Anna fell in love with Conor Evans at the wrong place and in the wrong time. She’d had to make the toughest decision she’d ever faced—and let him go. Now at the end of her life, he’s offering her a chance to finally follow her heart. He has invited her to the cull—a tradition of transformation from human into a lycanosapien by “bite and blood.”

Anna has her reasons for refusing Conor, even if it means only living another month, but Conor refuses to give up on the only woman he’s ever loved—not without a fight. Anna has another tough choice—go back to her frail humanity or accept Conor’s invitation and…claim.


***Contains Graphic Sex, Strong Language Or Adult Situations. Not for young readers***

***Gladys –  #NerdGirlOfficial’s  Review***
Renee George is fastly becoming my go to shifter author and I think I love her.  Her stories are unique, cutting edge and different.
The Cull is the name for the process of changing a human into a werewolf. Conor Evans has one wish, and he has invited Anna Davis to the cull—a tradition of transformation from human into a lycanosapien by “bite and blood.”   The caviat to the Cull is that Anna MUST want to become transform.  She needs to submit, but will she??
Anna is a strong character, even stronger than the Alpha AND HIS PROPOSED MATE SINCE BIRTH.  She is dying of cancer though and only has a few weeks if not days to live.  She needs to make a decision.  This story line is so dear to me as I have spoken to my bestie who both of us have chronic illnesses and want a paranormal to change us at our worst times.  She wants to to be a vampire (#NerdGirlVamp) and I a shifter.  So of course I love love love the developments in this story.
Be forewarned there is sex in this book but with all of Renee George’s books, it doesn’t take away from the story.  The passion is in her words!  
Renee George, I am just taking off my hat to bow as you are #AwesomSauce!!!  5 STARS!!!
