“In this touching love story, Grace tries to rescue Sam -- the love of her life -- from his fate as a werewolf. But time is running out, for the next time Sam changes it will be forever. The tightly knit plot and excellent character development will envelop readers in this story.”
— Krisann Blake, The Bookworm, Omaha, NE
From a dazzlingly talented young writer, a haunting and original supernatural romance in the vein of TWILIGHT.
For years, Grace has watched the wolves in the woods behind her house. One yellow-eyed wolf--her wolf--is a chilling presence she can't seem to live without. Meanwhile, Sam has lived two lives: In winter, the frozen woods, the protection of the pack, and the silent company of a fearless girl. In summer, a few precious months of being human . . . until the cold makes him shift back again.
Now, Grace meets a yellow-eyed boy whose familiarity takes her breath away. It's her wolf. It has to be. But as winter nears, Sam must fight to stay human--or risk losing himself, and Grace, forever.
