The full moon is their mistress. They are predators of pleasure and pain. Feared by humans, envied by werewolves, the Dire wolves are immortal shifters, obeying no laws but their own bestial natures. Once they were many, but now only eight remain, a dangerous wolfpack forever on the hunt…

Stray senses in Kate the powers of a witch and recruits her to help the Dires--all the while knowing that she is so powerful that they will need to kill her once she helps defeat the weretrappers.
