"We are the terrors that hunt the night. And we have never been human."
In Greek mythology there's a story of King Lykaonas of Arcadia and his 50 sons, who were cursed by the father of the gods, Zeus, to become wolves. The very first Lycanthropes.
Forensic pathologist, Sophia Katsaros, receives a cryptic phone call from Greece, telling her that her brothers are missing, and leaves to search for them. With the help of Illyanna, her brother's girlfriend, Sophia examines the evidence but cannot accept a bizarre possibility: Has one or both of her brothers been transformed during the Lykaia, the ceremony where man is said to become wolf?
Who is Marcus, a dark stranger that both repels and excites her? And what is the real story behind the 5000 year old curse of King Lykaonas?

This might have been a better listen if the 3 story lines had been separated. As it is, the stories are hard to follow, jumping between the story of the wolf queen, the child priest and the modern day mystery. I'm not sure I'll be able to finish the book and I don't know if it's the narrator or the actual story. The narrator is uninspired and the story is dragging, bogged down with too much detail.
