Rachel Brackett arrives in Sullivan, Montana with simple goals: relocate, settle an estate, and manage her own antique store. Her parents and friends back home called it running away. That’s just fine with her.
Rachel’s curiosity leads her into the forest, and she finds creatures who know more about her ominous heritage than she does. The creatures only exist in nightmares – grotesque mutants and shapeshifters. They seek vengeance for hideous crimes in genetic engineering, and Rachel is the prime target for retribution. While Rachel searches for the truth behind the family she never knew, a bounty hunter stalks her every move. Only Leonardo, a figure shrouded in the shadows, offers protection. A were lion with the perfect blend of human and feline features. Terrifying. Impossible. Alluring.
When Rachel’s home is ripped apart and a friend attacked, it’s clear there is no safe haven. She is no longer running from her past, but trying to survive to make it to her future. We get to meet Rachel’s mother, and personally I hope in book three we learn more about why she acts the way she does.
Normal is just a word, and one that no longer applies to Rachel Brackett’s life in the Bitterroot Mountains.
Keeping her two lives in Sullivan, Montana, isn’t easy. Rachel struggles to protect those with the deepest secrets, and the only one helping to keep her sanity intact is Leonardo. When he disappears, Rachel’s world tilts on a dangerous axis.
War with the Others is building, leaving Rachel and Justiz in a rush to find Leonardo.
Time is not on her side, and Rachel must find a way of reaching Leonardo or risk those she cares the most about.
