A pack torn. An enemy revealed. The werewolves face a long-forgotten foe…
As they battle vampires in Kansas City, Hugh and the wolves learn the war in Falias has gone horribly wrong.
The Mad King stole humanity’s most dangerous weapons. Now Damian Vesik, necromancer and ally of the River Pack, has been lost to the Abyss. Vicky longs to save Damian, to return the favor he once granted her, but soon discovers the only chance to rescue him means facing a gauntlet of ancient trials.
Nudd’s madness has unleashed nightmarish new obstacles, and it seems the wolves have met their match. Vicky, Hugh, and the pack must protect Kansas City from the rising darkness even as Nudd’s will threatens to crumble the city itself.
“Once again Eric Asher has gifted us with a well crafted, thrilling story. With one hand he offers hope, but with the other he threatens to crush your heart. I can’t recommend this series enough.” – Lisa Guertin
“The fight continues to separate Nudd from his balls! Another great entry in the series. This novella was a little slower in pace and lighter in intensity than the last one, and considering there is 8 more to go, that’s a good thing. There is still enough action to throw a bag of werewolf fur at, so dig in for some fun.” – Griff
“I love the rapid-fire novela format Asher is using for this part of the series; it works with the way the various threads are coming together and, IMO, helps to build the tension instead of being served up in a single book. Just as we get caught up with what Hugh and his pack have been up to, the fight changes quickly based off of the events of Book of the Ghost. Then, there is another surprise because clearly, somebody thought or said, ‘What else could go wrong?'” – Andrea
“I am truly digging these installments! I feel like I’m not having to wait as long for the shenanigans that is Vesik and crew. I like the length of the stories and the different perspectives. It’s great to see what is happening with each of the groups/characters and not just Damian. I do miss Damian though! Can’t wait for his trials and tribulations to be over (well at least the ones he’s dealing with now, not eternally!).” – I Feel the Need, the Need to Read book blog
