Atticus Steele smells blood and opens a truck to find a dead person, his unknown brother Ukiah Oregon. He knows that with rest and feeding the man will regenerate because he is just like him only he doesn't know his origins and thinks he is a freak. Tthe Ortongard from the cult have stolen weapons that could destroy humanity. Atticus and his new ally Ukiah and the Pack search for these weapons.

The author keeps his tales fresh by introducing an intriguing new character with new developments in the theme that insures the story line is not simply reiterated. The differences between Atticus and Ukiah adds depth as the newcomer is a product of the foster system so he is wary of love while the half breed showers his brother with love.
