Geri Kline: college junior, country girl in the city, and heir apparent in the infamous House of the Red Hoods.
Which, by the way, she has no interest in. Patrolling lupines, magical metallurgy, and dancing around sacred bonfires? So not her thing.
But when a vampire tries to make her dinner, Geri finds herself pulled into a supernatural conspiracy. She’s never wanted to develop her powers and she certainly doesn’t want to be anyone’s hero. But if she doesn’t help lone wolf Tobias find his stolen packmate before the third full moon, she’ll have a much bigger problem than a final exam: a moon mad werewolf on the streets of Chicago.
Forced into a mystical and ancient conflict, Geri must step up and embrace a fate she’s long denied or risk the war breaking into the world of the Hoods and maybe, even humanity.

Kendrai Meeks was deported from the American Midwest after graduating college, and held against her will since in California. She really hates sarcasm. She first published in 2011, and has since put out nine books in romance and science fiction. In 2017, she decided to return to her first love, urban fantasy. She has been a featured speaker on a number of conference and industry panels on topics ranging from Fanfiction, to Audiobooks, to Serialized Fiction. She is a world music devotee and loves to travel (just hates to fly – a conflict, for certain). She enjoys twisting the extant into the exceptional, often basing her work on historical themes or legendary folk tales and mythology.
