On an alternate earth, werewolves live on reservations and for the most part receive the same respect as human beings. They have strict birth control methods so they don't overwhelm the human population and different packs live in the same area. The Silver pack holds that free mating is necessary and hosts wild parties at the mansion the week before the full moon.

This month, Neva Grant of the Golden pack is at the mansion to infiltrate the Sinclair pack because several women were attacked and killed except for her twin sister Savannah who nearly died. She seduces Duncan, the wildest one of the bunch, and he claims her, through magic for the rest of the week. He too is looking for the murderer and thinks Neva might be a link to the culprit. By the time these two lovers have sorted things, Neva is attacked and Duncan kidnapped by two werewolves with hidden agendas.

Fans of Laurell Hamilton and Charlaine Harris are going to love this werewolf series. Keri Arthur creates a whole culture out of the werewolf mythos and makes the reader believe in the species because of her intricate plotting. The werewolves police themselves by the rangers who are part of their society, a situation very similar to Native Americans living on the reservation.
