“It was like my wolf had been there all along during the fight, waiting for me to tap its hand and step into the ring. As rage filled my body like the blood coursing through my veins I arched my back and screamed as the first shudder of transformation ran through me.”
For most girls ‘that time of the month’ means stomach cramps and excessive chocolate consumption. For Tommi Grayson it means sprouting fur and devouring townspeople.
She’s a werewolf.
On the surface Tommi is all cool confidence: brown skin, blue hair and a faint Scottish accent. Inside, she’s still reeling from the unexpected death of her mother. She leaves small town Scotland and sets out for a remote corner of New Zealand to track down her estranged father Jonah Ihi.
Some things are best left buried.
‘Daddy dearest’ happens to be the head of a powerful Maori werewolf clan – The Ihis. And they’re desperate for new members.
Shaken by revelations about her past and refusing to join her blood pack, she makes the bold choice to become what the Maori call Kahuatairingi – a lone wolf – barely escaping New Zealand with her life.
Yet supernatural law dictates she cannot do it alone. Enter Lorcan: her mysterious and deadly tutor from ancient organisation The Treize. With secrets of his own, Tommi and Lorcan begin an uneasy partnership as she tries to learn how to control this monstrous new side of herself.
But something has followed her home.
As the bodies begin piling up, can Tommi use her new powers to find the murderous stranger and bring them to justice? Or is the culprit someone she knows much more intimately?
Mixing elements of horror, fantasy and mystery, Who’s Afraid? is a must-read tale for genre fans who want to sink their teeth into an adventure. The sequel – Who’s Afraid Too? – is expected shortly thereafter.
