Hello, my dear readers. Welcome to The Chronicles of the Shifter Directive, a Siren Epic series. Accompanying the release of the first of seven books, Werewolf’s Way, is a free Companion Guide for the series to fully immerse you in the world of the Shifter Directive and hint at what’s in store for this epic tale. The introduction to the guide can be read below to give you a taste of what’s to come.
I chose to write this companion for a very simple reason. The world-building in Chronicles of the Shifter Directive is very complex. There are a lot of characters and a lot of information, so I thought it would be useful for readers to have a guide. I have done something similar before, with the free character list available on my website for the Mate or Meal series. However, this companion guide is far more complex, including not only the names of each characters, but also historical background, complete description of the species involved, family trees, and a FAQ section. Naturally, with all the information in the guide, there will be some spoilers, although not to the plot of the books. I endeavored to keep the information largely independent from what happens in the actual stories. If you prefer to be surprised even in terms of world-building, I have a little extra for you, a sneak peek into the first story, Werewolf’s Way, starring werewolf Graham Powers and sprite Caelyn Sutharlainn. You can also find it in this Companion and read it without fear of too many spoilers. So, this guide can be used for many things—to give you a feel of the series, to make you remember interesting facts, and to help you monitor your favorite characters and their relationships along the way. Without further ado, enjoy the Companion, and most of all, enjoy the series! Scarlet Hyacinth June 2013
