Between life and death-there's magic. Friends of the Midwest Pack are missing, alliances are forming between enemies whose sole intent is to destroy the pack, and a mysterious group is trying to make a power grab using any means possible. With her pack and its allies in danger, and her love life threatened by secrets, Sky doesn't think things could possibly get worse. Then the spirit shade she's hosted all her life awakens-vengeful and powerful-and uses Sky to cast a dark spell over all were-animals. If she can't find a way to reverse it, they will die.
