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.
