*Now a featured Wattpad story!

Zara was never meant to be an outcast. Once upon a time, she was a Red Cape- a member of the respected forest guard. That was before the accident, though. The one that left her partner dead and her to blame. Now expelled from the guard and living a life of shame, all Zara wants is to redeem herself and earn back her coveted position. The perfect opportunity arises when a mysterious Hunstman shows up in the kingdom...looking for her. 

Somewhere deep within the dark forest, a princess is being held captive by the werewolves and their king. As the royal Huntsman, it's Ronan's job to find her and bring her back. And who better to guide him than a former member of the renowned Red Capes? While Zara isn't thrilled at the idea of working side by side with the irritatingly charming Huntsman, she's in no position to refuse his proposition. Especially if she wants to impress the guard and earn a second chance. Together, they enter the forest to face the myriad of terrifying creatures awaiting inside.

Ardon, the werewolf king, has an agenda of his where he and his pack rise from exile to reclaim their place at the top of the food chain. When he begins to make unexplainable appearances within Zara's dreams, she realizes things are far from what they seem. The truth behind their strange connection may not be one she's ready for. However, the werewolf king is far from the only one harboring dark secrets. What began as a simple rescue mission will soon turn into a challenge not only for Zara's life, but for the world outside the forest.

I think the second word should be "melded", not molded. Typo?
                              Also, thank you. That's the best thing I've read all day.
This makes me think of Aragorn's introduction in the movie, The Lord of the Rings. I liked the mystery of it in that medium and here. She isn't trying to portray any aggression or power, but instead a quiet confidence  in herself. It's subtle and well done.
I'm hooked! This is a wonderful  beginning to what I'm sure will be an entertaining read. Thanks for sharing your work.  I can't wait to see what happens next.
Love how you weave the characterisation through the dialogue.
Fantastic first chapter! This is definitely going into my reading list!!!
This vivid description of the forest and her feelings really brings me in.
