No wonder I kept some secrets, broke a few rules...and implicated my werewolf protector in the process. Oops.
To make matters worse, the stealer of my dead mother's magic has set his sights on my sister a second time. As the child's powers fade, so does her vitality until death looms on the horizon.
Can I learn to harness the power of the pack --- and squash my individuality --- before my sister's life is entirely sucked away from her? And, with my recent blunders causing upheaval in the werewolf world, will my former protector be willing to help us if I choose to ask?
This second book in Aimee Easterling's "nailbiting" and "explosive" urban fantasy series follows Wolf's Bane.

Half-werewolf Athena has spent her entire adult life keeping her human sister off the local alpha's radar. But when the Samhain Shifters come to town, she's thrown off her game.
Tank isn't at all what Athena had come to expect from an alpha. Rather than throwing his weight around and taking from the little guys, he risks his skin to fight off deadly fae who slip into our world one night per year.
"Join us," Tank tempts, prompting butterflies to take flight in Athena's stomach. The gig would be a one-week commitment, the work a boon to the common good, the result insurance for her sister's future. But if Athena drops her standards and runs with wolves, will she ever be able to attain independence again?
Fourteen years ago, I bit through the lip of the first boy brave enough to kiss me. Since then, I've acquired a Ph.D. in archaeology, a new teaching gig at a prestigious university, and research interests out the wazoo.
Unfortunately, my social life is still as bleak as a raided Egyptian tomb.
Until, that is, a stranger interrupts my class bearing the same ancient cat fang I see in my dreams. He's rough around the edges and entirely riveting. No wonder my inner monster wakes up and seizes the reins.
Soon, wolf tracks appear on campus, the monster begins holding conversations without my permission, and a shadowy figure breaks into my office in search of the cat fang. Can I afford to reopen old wounds and display my darker half to the world just when I'm finally finding my feet?
