From the New York Times and USA Today best-selling author of On Dublin Street: Enter a world of fierce wolves, stunning magic, and romance.
It’s bad enough feeling different among the human crowd, but feeling different among wolves? No one said returning to her pack would be easy, especially after ten years without them, but 17-year-old Caia Ribeiro is unprepared for the realities of the transition. Raised in a world where kids aren’t scared by bedtime tales of the bogeyman but by the real life threat of enemy supernaturals who might come creeping into their community to kill them in their sleep, Caia is used to the darkness; she’s used to the mystery and the intrigue of the ancient underworld war she’s bound to by chance of birth.
What she’s having trouble with are pack members treating her with wary suspicion, the Elders tucking secrets behind their backs, and her young Alpha, Lucien, distracting her with a dangerous attraction from her decision to uncover the truth.
But as the saying goes "the truth will out", and when it does, Caia will only have so long to prepare herself before the war comes pounding on their door threatening to destroy the safe, secret lives of the wolves…and the girl they protect.

I'm a 47 year old mom of two young girls. Just recently discovered young adult fiction, as well as dystopian novels.
The narration for this is a complete disaster! I've never heard a narrator that was such a bad fit for a book in my life! Lucinda Gainey should be a children's book narrator, who knows, maybe she is. But this? Horrific.
As far as the story, I really like Samantha Young, so can't go wrong with that. However, I am now reading it, not listening to it.
A different voice.
The voice, i couldn't get into the book as the voice didn't appeal me into liking the book.
Her tone of it all wasn't good.
Nothing, only the Lucinda Gainey's voice i would cut out of it and pick someone like Justine Eyre
Ahhh the narration!
The book yes.
I feel bad saying it, because this narrator would be perfect for historical fiction or a romantic novel. But in a young adult book, she way way wayyyy missed the mark. She talked so slow, I actually used the speed option on audible just to make the book bearable. And also, she sort of made everyone sound "nice." Like these are grown men angry werewolves or this angst-y teenager, but you couldn't tell. She sounded like a nice little old lady. Weirdest narrator choice for a book I have listened to yet. And the whole time, I kept thinking, just get through this book- surely they used a different narrator in the 2nd book. But no, same one. These books are being returned for the damage they did to narrated books everywhere.
Beware before you buy! I highly suggest listening to a sample of this one!
I can't see this becoming a movie. It fits very nicely into paranormal werewolf genre, but the story wasn't that gripping that I think it would even be optioned for a movie.
Oy. This one scarred me,
