"Didn't they teach you not to run from wolves, darlin'?" Before the western werewolf, before fear became a common friend, before humans were scared of the dark- there were the Adlets. Descended from the first shapeshifter, beast and man are conjured into one, hidden deep within the soils of the harsh Alaskan forests. Surviving off of the land and secluding themselves by keeping outsiders away- the Adlets become unhealthily intrigued by the Mavericks, a lonely family of three. After patiently waiting years for Rory and Rowan Maverick, the only son and daughter of a fearless woman named Rowena, to turn eighteen- the twins unknowingly fall prey to every unmated Adlet. Unfortunately, Rory's and Rowan's problems are much more complicated than a pack of wild shifters trying to vie for their affections. It begins much deeper, as deep as the very blood in their bodies.
