The greater Los Angeles area is in the horrifying grip of a werewolf epidemic. Twenty-eight days of the month, those who change are no different from the uninfected—the High Bloods. But every full moon, they become the most ravenous creatures mankind has ever seen.
Rawson is an agent for Lycan Control. It’s his job to identify and monitor the afflicted—and lock them up the night they change. But the Lycans in Hollywood have risen to cultlike proportions, and Rawson’s job is getting tougher.
Someone has managed to rewrite the rules: Lycans can now change form even when there isn’t a full moon. Battling a rising tide of Lycan-rights activists and people who choose to become werewolves, Rawson must carve a path to the top of the Lycan hierarchy before all hell breaks loose.
