An unexpected phone call heralds a new challenge for Mercy. Her mate Adam´s ex-wife is in trouble, on the run from her new boyfriend. Adam won´t turn away a person in need, but with Christy holed up in Adam´s house, Mercy can´t shake the feeling that something isn´t right.
Soon, Mercy learns that Christy has the farthest thing from good intentions. She wants Adam back and will anything to get him, including turning Adam´s pack against Mercy.
On top of this, there´s an even more dangerous threat circling. Christy´s ex is more than a bad man - in fact, he may not be human at all. As the bodies pile up, Mercy must put her personal troubles aside to face a creature with the power to tear her world apart.
