In a modern world where Packs of werewolves exist side by side with a none-the-wiser humanity, what if one person stood between a lasting peace among the werewolf Packs and all-out civil war? A young female werewolf called Des is bound by a blood oath with the guarding of this person, the aging leader of all the Packs: the Dyre. But when the Dyre is murdered on Des's watch, she's sworn to protect the new Dyre, a young woman named Ruby. Des must deal with her emerging feelings for her stubborn new charge while they both try to uncover who's behind the continuing murders of powerful werewolves. It's stable employment—nice work, if you can get it…at least until the silver bullets start to fly.
Jennifer “Des” Desiderio is a werewolf on a mission…a mission to retrieve her queen, Ruby, who was abducted on Des’s watch.
But it’s not as simple as following her nose, fighting the good fight, and saving the day. Des must first team up with her rival for Ruby’s affections, Thierry LaFours, to track the kidnappers to and through Paris. With the help of a tarot card-reading werewolf named Nicolae, and Des’s new found ability to go dream-walking, they manage to close in on the kidnappers. But to save her queen, Des must once more play the champion and battle not only for her and Ruby’s lives, but for all the North American Packs and their entire way of life.
