Meet Kaia Kyncaid: daughter, swordswoman, shapeshifter. Her animal form is a white wolf, a rarity in her world; she is the first in centuries and only the fourth ever born. More importantly, she is the child of a mixed species mating who survived her first transformation despite most children before her not being so fortunate.
Too soon Kaia’s world will be turned upside down and she’s going to have to leave her home and family to find answers and face her destiny. She’ll take FitzWilliam “Fitz” Ballantyne with her on the journey, despite his reputation as a scoundrel. In addition to being her best friend, sparring partner and a fierce gray wolf in his own right, Kaia knows he will always stand with her when trouble comes.
Along the way she’ll encounter witches and other creatures from myth, and a dangerous and charismatic man who struggles with his own dark destiny centered around his obsession with a woman he has never met — a child of prophecy born with not one but TWO animal spirits within her…The Aurelius Heir.
