Scarlett and Rosie March lost their grandmother to a Fenris (others might call it a werewolf). Scarlett was severely mauled in the struggle, losing an eye and living now with scars from her attempt to save the life of her younger sister Rosie. Scarlett has dedicated herself to tracking down and killing as many of the Fenris as she can. Every evening she dons her red cloak and hood and uses herself as bait to lure the human form somewhere when she can wield her axe and knives. Rosie wants to perform her first solo hunt, but Scarlett is so concerned that she might lose her sister, her family, that she has yet to permit this. However, there seems to be a gathering of the Fenris. The news is reporting more disappearances of young women, particularly in Atlanta. The Fenris are searching for The Potential, a young man who is ready to be turned into a Fenris. So Scarlett and Rosie and their friend Silas decide to head to Atlanta to find The Potential and eliminate as many of the predators as they can.
This summary sounds flat (just the facts, ma'am). The story is far from it, though. Lots of action and battles and blood and guts. But more than that, it is also a romance, a story about sibling ties, about lore.
