Shade Valley is rescued from complete anonymity by the legendary tale of the goddess Artemis, and the fabled wolf. Lila unwillingly moves to the foreboding small town with her newly divorced mother. Her first morning, she awakes shivering from a nightmare set to the rumbling backdrop of swaying trees and hallowed calls, to face her punishment. Lila is just an ordinary girl with dreams, which dull even her, until she meets the angelic faced teenagers that invite her into their clique. Despite warnings to stay away, from a disheveled local girl with a cerulean stare, she is drawn like a moth to a flame. Ignoring the foreboding caution, she is lured into their group and begins to date Reid, regardless of her steadily growing feelings for his best friend. Unbeknown to Lila she has arrived at a crucial time, bearing the sign they have waited for. The group seems to spend all their time at Sam’s very large house, they laugh in the face of the town curfew and her parents are on a never-ending holiday. Suspense builds as she learns their secret, shocked to discover they are werewolves as one violently attacks her, she is rescued by the mysteriously scarred Cresida James.
Lila realizes these striking teenagers are werewolves. Intelligent creatures, told in myth, to be created in anger by the God of Thunder and Skies out of love for his beloved daughter, in revenge for her death.
Lila learns Cresida was infected by Sam, before her arrival, and now as a disgraced half-breed her life must end, when the next huntress arrives. Enthralled by their supernatural gifts, Lila secretly desires to become one of them.
The Alpha, Sam, has the ability to influence anyone who is weak willed enough to do as
she wishes, but Lila is able to resist her persuasion, a trait Sam does not appreciate.
Enamored with the wolves, suddenly, deeply, driven by forbidden desire she longs to be part of the pack. Then without warning she is cut from the group, by leader Sam. Devastated she feels an intense desire to find a way back into their supernatural world. Unbelievably, the unrequited feelings for the alpha’s mate are reciprocated. Driven by a primal force she does not yet understand Lila confronts the infuriated Sam, who deliberately attempts to bite her. Cresida manages to save Lila from the venomous attack just in time, narrowly avoiding her own uncanny fate.
Lila must come to terms with the fact that she is the one thing that threatens their existence. In the aftermath she isn’t entirely convinced she needed to be rescued from the bite. Lila can no longer fight the supernatural calling inside. Chosen by the spirit of Artemis, what she is, and who she is are two different people and somewhere inside her the love and desire she feels, dooms her to make heart wrenching choices, which will either go against her kind or destroy the creatures she loves. In the unfolding fatal allure of hunter and prey.
