When Rowe Branning sets off with her faithful wolfhound, Tris, on a quest to visit a grandmother she hasn't seen in fifteen years, her arrival in Hartford Cove is far less welcoming than she hoped for. Her reason for coming is put into question, and the way the sheriff looks at her makes her feel like prey even as she's drawn to him.
Then ghosts from her past return in the flesh, making Rowe question what she remembers of her last visit to this hidden town, when she watched her mother and her best friend be brutally mauled by a monster out of nightmares.
Nothing in Hartford Cove is as it seems. It holds dark secrets, not just to her past, but to the true purpose behind Hartford Cove’s seclusion. Is there any hope of Rowe finding safety and a new home? Especially when she hides secrets of her own? Because everywhere Rowe looks, she sees monsters, and she's beginning to think they're not just her imagination.
Magic encircles the town, howls fill the woods, and a curse lives in Rowe's blood that everyone wants. But who is friend and who is foe in the feud between the wolves and the huntsmen?
