'The moon was just a soft glow through the flimsy curtains in Kate's bedroom, but she feared even that intrusion. She pushed sweat-drenched hair from her eyes and turned on her bedside light. Looked round at the familiar things in the room. Told herself she was normal. Normal for now. But the images of the dream wouldn't change this time. The moon. The blood. The exultant wolf. That's going to be me, she thought, starting to shake. Whatever happens, that's what I'm going to become. Most of all, she feared the day that she would think those thoughts not with fear and guilt and shame - but with pride.' Kate's family is a family of a very particular type - a werewolf family. Her parents and brother are werewolves, and when Kate comes of age werewolf law dictates that she will become one too. But Kate is horrified at the fate that awaits her, and can feel none of the pride that strengthens her family in their werewolf state. For the time being she is able to avoid the issue of when she will become werewolf. Until, that is, her parents kidnap Tom Folan, on holiday with his parents, and destined to become Kate's mate...A tense, plot-twisting werewolf thriller that will have readers on the edge of their seats.
The first in 'The Wereling' trilogy.
