Melanie Johnson's world just got turned upside down and she is still reeling from her father’s revelation of their shocking family secret.
Everything she knew about herself has been transformed- just as, on the night of the full moon after her 17th birthday, her very being will transform into something unfamiliar. Wild. Powerful.
Now Melanie’s family sweeps her off to the wilderness of Kentucky to join others like themselves and prepare for what lies ahead. The one constant in her life is Jeremy, who’s support gives her strength. Even as he struggles over his family’s betrayal and his own shifting identity, he stands beside her, hand in hand, as they discover the world that could have been theirs had circumstance not gotten in the way.
Melanie has an amazing birthday- her bond with Jeremy is solidified despite the attentions of an angel-faced new acquaintance, her best friend makes a surprise visit and everything seems right for once in her crazy new life- until someone makes an attempt on Jeremy’s life and she almost loses him.
Jeremy has rescued Melanie from death, kidnapping, and even the local mean girl. Now it’s her turn to protect him. No matter the cost.
