Clyde Barrington is a werewolf with a curse on his head. Every night, he shifts from human to wolf and lives the life of a lonely predator, never fully accepted by his pack. When he saves a handsome stranger from a fire, everything changes.

In a world divided by the ancient feud between werewolves and warlocks, Clyde and Terry must learn to trust each other. When wolves start to disappear, their bond is tested by the fear of a pack now balanced on the edge of destruction.

Amidst a web of lies, deceits and betrayals, Clyde must decide where his loyalties lie, and choose between a forbidden love and the ties that bind him to his brothers. Is Terry an enemy to the pack, or the saviour that will lead them out of the darkness?


This was a truly unique story of werewolves and warlocks and witches. One that was a surprise to me especially with the little twist at the end. The writing was good although there were some small inconsistencies which most some probably wouldn’t see, it didn’t take me out of the story but did give me pause.

Kris has a voice all their own that comes through in the story. Their writing is more”flowery” than I typically like, but it wasn’t over the top or annoying just something that was harder to get used to for someone who likes a much simpler writing style.

For a novella, it was developed, and the characters came through as much as one can expect from the length of it. I wish there was more showing of the two main characters, Terry and Clyde than there was. There was a bit told, and I get for shorter stories that is a must, but I didn’t quite feel the love they professed for each other.

The story ended on a cliffhanger which doesn’t bother me, but I’m not sure if I was invested enough in the story to continue to read what comes next.
