This reminds me a lot of the Shifters in Kyla's book, Caste. I can see this look just as she is about to shift (into a dragon of course). Her skin pales, lips slightly open, eyes already transitioning into the cat eyes characteristic of a shifter. Love how this teased my imagination!
Once being "bit" in the simulated apocalypse after a weekend long extensive training course, one thing was very clear—we’re all screwed if the real zombie apocalypse comes...and none of our plans are going to work the way we think they are.
