Wehr Wolff Castle
The Wehr Wolff Chronicles Book 1
by B. Bentley Summers
Genre: Historical Horror, LGBT
 
 
During the rise of Nazi Germany, Hagen Messer joins the Royal Air Force as an American soldier who specializes in tracking. He’s attached to British commandos and given a seemingly simple mission—to find a captive and destroy a dam—but everything goes awry. Hagen’s plane crashes into Germany’s Wehr Forest and he has to use his extrasensory abilities to track the captive to nearby Wehr Wolff Castle, a secret Nazi base where vile experiments are being conducted.

 

 

 

Hagen and his surviving team members must sneak into the castle and devise a way to destroy the experimental labs creating diabolical creatures. Hagen is horrified to find Nazis and scientists with no scruples, and at the most inconvenient time, he learns that he may be in love with one of his teammates, an Irishman named Liam. In order to protect his love and his friends, Hagen must feign nonchalance amidst pure degeneracy and suspicion. Hagen soon discovers, though, that he is in over his head.
 
 
What may not only redeem him, but also save his lover and friends, is a childhood past and a darkness lurking deep inside him, just waiting to be engaged.

 

 

 

 
 
 

Werewolves in forest

 

How far had they gone? Fifteen kilometers? Hagen was uncertain, but even after his physical training at boot camp, blisters were forming on his feet from their long march. Hagen kept touching his breast pocket, making certain he had not lost the handkerchief. He wanted to take it out and concentrate, and let that dark energy flood him. But there was no time for that, so he sucked in a deep breath when that thought came, and pushed it back.

Hagen tried to distract himself by recalling those mutant creatures attacking them earlier. A deep breath should have helped, but it didn't. His mind wouldn't cooperate and instead conjured up faded memories of when he'd been a youth and was helpless and vulnerable. Ivan. A flash of a memory came to him. He was knelt down by his brother, who was bloodied and not far from death.

Hagen massaged his head and tried to focus on the task at hand. His brother's voice whispered in his ear. "Put him out of his misery." Hagen shook his head.

He paused and glanced over his shoulder. No one was there. He focused and sensed Liam and the others were not far away, then doubled back and found a small clearing where he stopped to wait and rest. Moments later, Roesia came up, with Lt. David close on her heels. A snap of limbs and the sergeant came into view, helping to carry the hallucinating Hodges. Profuse amounts of sweat fell from Sgt. Collins’s brow, and a rancid scent wafted from the man. A smell that no one seemed to notice but Hagen.

Liam trailed everyone and, when he saw Hagen, asked, "Bugger to hell, where’d you go, Hagen?"

A noise got Hagen's attention and raised his hackles. He held up a hand, cutting Liam off, listening. What was that noise? Barking?

"What is it?" Roesia whispered.

The barking noises grew louder, and everyone cringed.

"A-are those blimey weremutts?" Liam whined.

Hagen put his finger to his mouth. Something howled, and everyone tensed.

Hagen listened for a couple of moments and then said, "No, those are dogs."

That piece of news didn't appear to provide anyone any relief. Shouts from German soldiers drew closer, and Lt. David said crisply, "Go, Hagen."

Hagen pushed forward. The barks grew louder, though, and the yelling soldiers were dangerously close. The men were excited, and one yelled, "Diesen Weg!" This way. They were right on their trail.

Hagen stopped, hunched over, his hands on a tree as perspiration beaded on his forehead. His clothes were wet with sweat even though there was a bitter coldness to the air. Roesia came up to him, out of breath. Leaves rustled, and Liam took over for Sgt. Collins, pulling Hodges forward. The shouting of soldiers drew closer.

Lt. David shook his head and ordered, "Messer, O'Malley, Professor. Go. Sgt. Collins, you're in command. Get as far as you can. I'll stay with Hodges."

Hagen shook his head and opened his mouth to protest, but stopped. The German soldiers’ systematic shouts had become chaotic. They were shouting orders unintelligibly. The barking grew to a crescendo.

One word became clear. "Feuer!" Fire. Screaming ensued. Eerie cries of agony and high-pitched yelps echoed through the forest. A chill wound up Hagen's spine. German soldiers were shouting over each other. One recurrent scream was, "Hilfe!"

"What do they keep saying?" Liam asked in a whisper.

"Help," whispered Roesia.

The shrieks and gunfire of the soldiers filled the shadowy crevices around them; no one spoke. At long last, a weight of dead silence hung in the air, and Hagen's group stood frozen in the eerie quiet.

Lt. David broke the spell. "Hagen, we should move," he said in a hushed voice.

Hagen nodded and started forward.

 
 
 
 
 
Bryce is a psychologist, author, and the founder of Queer Sense Theory. 
 
Bryce writes popular fiction genres meant for all audiences under Bryce Bentley Summers, and pens gay fiction under B. Bentley Summers, although he'd argue that anyone would enjoy his gay fiction pieces.
 
Bryce's full time work is at the Veteran Affairs where he has been employed for five years. He has extensive history of working with people diagnosed with PTSD and he used these experiences when writing Fresh Meat.
 
The novel, Fresh Meat, recently won Dan Poynter's Global eBook Awards for best gay fiction. This piece is more than just a book, but embraces gay identity while deploring the hateful violence that happens in the U.S. prison system, and across the world. The book parallels the vicious Man-Punk prison system to the long ago abolished American Slavery System. However, Fresh Meat is not non-fiction, but fiction, and it's genre is best described as Supernatural Horror. 
 
 
Rotville and The Zombie Squad, are two of Bryce's recent completions. The Zombie Squad is a teen Post-Apocalyptic Thriller that recently received Reader's Favorite 5-Stars. This novel has humor and is fast pace, that follows four teens in New Orleans who find themselves not only chased by psycho gangsters, but in the middle of zombocalypse. Rotville is a new adult/ adult Sci-Fi Post-Apocalyptic Horror that takes place in the near future, in a city called Rotville where people with a rot disease are quarantined. Inside this city is the mega prison Colleseo, where inhumane experiments are carried out on inmates. It's also the birthplace of Dylan, a super soldier who must fight his way out, save a couple of youths from the new deadly mutants, and keep from being re-caught by the greedy director.
 
Bryce is also the author of the fiction Young Adult Dark Fantasy/ Sci-Fi series AMEN TO ROT. The novel NYTE GOD is the conclusion to this series. The Amen to Rot series and Nyte God pit Ace and his friends against alien invaders who are turning humans into mutant creatures. 
 
Bryce authors popular fiction with a style that entices readers of all backgrounds to consume, and makes every attempt to make his characters diverse. 
 
As noted, Bryce does dabble in gay fiction, and pens it under B. Bentley Summers, though in truth, these works are meant for everyone to read. Bryce is the founder of Queer Sense, a theory that describes how people form attitudes. The theory provides insight into how specific components in cultural contexts shape our beliefs and values, which ultimately form our attitudes. The nonfiction book, QUEER SENSE: How Are Attitudes Formed? A Revolutionary Guide for Teens, Parents, Mental Health Professionals and Anyone Interested in Queer Theory, is due out by 2016.
