Alpha Markus Prologue Chapter

Celeste in Alpha Markus

The prologue is told from 11-year-old Celeste’s point of view. She witnesses the brutal takeover of her pack by the rival Alpha Geoff and his pack. Despite feeling her father’s death through their mind link, Celeste pushes through the crowd to see for herself.

She finds Alpha Geoff standing over her father’s body, holding his severed head. Her mother Luna is on her knees in despair. Alpha Geoff declares he now controls their pack and that Luna belongs to him.

When Celeste’s mother sees her in the crowd, she sends Celeste a private message to stay hidden and keep her gifts a secret. Celeste then has a vision of her mother committing suicide, which then occurs. Alpha Geoff orders all unmated females and young males to be taken, and the rest of the pack killed.

Celeste is carried away and protected by her father’s gamma, Lucian. He tells her to lie about her identity and say she is his daughter if questioned. Lucian promises to try to save Celeste but then sacrifices himself by jumping off a cliff to escape, as Celeste cries on the cliff edge. She is later found unconscious by unknown people.

Alpha Markus Chapter 1

The chapter begins 11 years after the events of the prologue. Celeste wakes up in her small room at the Packhouse, where she has been living as a s$$$e since she was a child.

She communicates mentally with her wolf Kara, who encourages her to have faith in her gift and their strength. Celeste remains skeptical as her premonitions are unreliable and cause her pain.

Through flashbacks, it’s revealed Celeste concealed her true identity and lineage when brought before Alpha Geoff after her family was murdered. She has posed as the orphaned daughter of the former Gamma to survive.

Celeste reflects on the fate of the children taken after the attack. Many go missing after reaching adulthood, believed to be killed or turned into rogue werewolves if not mated. She worries this will be her fate next year.

Kara believes in their power but Celeste wants only to escape with her life. They practice a secret “backup plan”. Celeste continues her daily life of servitude at the Packhouse as an Omega, hiding her shifting abilities and true nature.
