(March 2015 – May 2018)
Finally Daniel, Kayla, and Zeke are reunited. But can they work together to defeat Geo?
This book was quite difficult to write. I had never written the final book in a series, and I felt a lot of pressure to wrap up all the plotlines and make the story dramatic enough.
It took a long time to finally realize how I wanted to write this book. Because the other books in the series were single points-of-view, my options were to have a single first-person narrator (Daniel seemed like the most likely candidate, since he narrated the first book), a third-person narration, or multiple first person narrations.
My first attempt at this book was made in November 2015. The title was Fighters and was told from Misty’s point-of-view. I had thought then that the Wolf Point series would be six books long. Misty would narrate book 4, Tucker would narrate book 5 (possible title: Traitors), and Remy would narrate the final book. When I thoroughly failed at writing Fighters, I thought about making the series five books long, with book 5 narrated by Kayla (I could keep the title as Fighters) and the final book narrated by Daniel, making the series a mirror of itself.
I eventually settled on the third option. I had Daniel, Kayla, and Zeke rotate their POV chapters, with each continuing their journeys of self-discovery. I also decided to include chapters from the other members of the Wolf Point pack. Each of these chapters had to encapsulate a bit of that character’s story arc in a complete sort of way.
I wrote the bulk of this book during Camp Nanowrimo in April 2018. During this month, I attended a writer’s workshop on handling a large cast of characters, which was very helpful. Because I had such a solid sense of what each character was trying to accomplish and the novel’s structure, this novel required probably the least amount of editing of any of the Wolf Point novels.
I created the Warriors cover in Canva, along with a redesign of all the other Wolf Point covers.
